Guys Don't use Bt Toxins onGuys Don't use Bt Toxins on sunflowers. Please. Sunflowers are some of our pollinators favorite plants. Spraying Bt on a sunflower head? BAD IDEA. If you get infested with little worms, let the birds eat them - cut the heads off and separate them from the rest of the crop; or cut the head and take it to your chickens or ducks. They will make very quick work of those worms. But don't spray poinson on sunflowers! Jeeez. What kind of Almanac advice is that???
