Growth rates of Bacillus thuringiensis var. thuringiensis Berliner in broth cultures containing insecticides were measured. Insecticides tested for compatibility included chlorinated hydrocarbons and their epoxies, carbonates, and oregano phosphates. Of these insecticides, only aldrin, heptachlor, and DDT at the rates of 0.93, 2.25, and 4.5 ppm significantly reduced growth rates. The chlorinated hydrocarbon epoxides, oregano phosphates, and carbamates had no significant effects on growth rates at these levels. Cell propagation of B. thuringiensis in distilled water containing 500 ppm of diazinon and malathion indicated metabolic breakdown of these compounds.
