this stuff I have seen the best greenhouse hydro growers and really experienced people swear by it as being the best pesticide they have ever used and which alone eliminates almost every pest, not needing any other pesticides

Although Dow agro sciences is the sole producer, there seem to be some diluted forms in market derived from the original product

Never used it myself but it sounds like a naturally occurring enzyme that is produced by a microorganism and is just farmed and harvested for commercial use. I would think it would be a good tool against the leaf chewing critters.

It's odd, but I have used a product named Tracer Ultra (foreign made) which had Spinosad in it.

Don't know about this Tracer, but the one I used was excellent. Always recommend Spinosad.
