Does anyone know more about if the BTI toxins make their way into the plant and therefore the buds ?

The EPA considers BTI to be non toxic and it is approved for organic farming.

I thought so, but always better to get confirmation

NP! I have seem some people freak out cause it has the word "toxin" in it, but it's just toxic to animals with a basic PH balanced digestive system and a specific enzyme, and humans use acid based digestion.

I ditched the bti awhile ago. Order nematodes from a reputable supplier and they take care of everything.

Bti (specifically Gnatrol) goes further for your dollar and stores well. Nematodes don't and vary in availability.

Pasteurize the coco/soil before use.

Inoculate afterwords.

The only time I had an outbreak was with seedling
potting mix that was employed without treatment.

Being lazy is not an option.

lol.

Has there been any studies on the effects of BTI when combusting and inhaling into the lungs? Or any chemicals for that matter.. It's a complete different biological/chemical process combustion and inhaling vs ingesting it through your digestive system. Best option, use chemicals sparingly around the grow and implement clean growing practices with mechanical barriers, aka yellow stickies.

As far as I can find no there are none dealing with the combustion of it. A bunch dealing with it in water supplies and it's been found to be non toxic. I also found papers saying they found it on stored tobacco leaves. Isolation of Bacillus thuringiensis from Stored Tobacco and Lasioderma serricorne (F.) & Occurrence of Bacillus thuringiensis on cured tobacco leaves. If it's on tobacco leaves, somebody has been smoking it at some point. You are right that not enough research has been done on the combustion of pesticides, I figure tobacco is the closest mainstream thing that people do smoke. If it's considered non-toxic on tobacco, I would assume it's non toxic on weed, but realistically it needs it's own research done. Which costs money. Which isn't coming on a federal level, only from private funding. So yeah. It might be a while still.

Bti is applied to the soil and is not systemic.
