I am reading one of my turfgrass insect pest books and I am a little confused. The book lists Bacillus popilliae as milky spore disease, not Bacillus thuringiensis V. Kerstacki (sp?) What's the difference?

Bacillus popilliae or milky spore disease is used for grub control under the ground.

Bacillus thuringiensis is used for Caterpillars control above the ground on leaves
