Bacillus subtilis powder Biological Pesticides Insecticide for legume , aubergines
Bacillus subtilis, which is knownas hay bacillus or grass bacillus, is a Gram-positive, catalase-positive bacterium. A member of the genus Bacillus, B. subtilis is rod-shaped, and has the ability to form a tough, protective endospore, allowing the organism to tolerate extreme environmental conditions. B. subtilis has historically been classified as an obligate aerobe, though recent research has demonstrated this is not strictly correct.
Although this species is commonly found in soil, more evidence suggests B. subtilis is a normal gut commensal in humans. A 2009 study compared the density of spores found in soil (about 106 spores per gram) to that found in human feces (about 104 spores per gram). The number of spores found in the human gut is too high to be attributed solely to consumption through food contamination. Soil simply serves as a reservoir, suggesting B. subtilis inhabits the gut and should be considered as a normal gut commensal.
