According to the study, as reported by Green Med Info:
“[The bacteria] were identified as Leuconostoc mesenteroides WCP907, Lactobacillus brevis WCP902, Lactobacillus plantarum WCP931, and Lactobacillus sakei WCP904. [The insecticide] could be utilized by these four strains as the sole source of carbon and phosphorus.”
