Usually the recommendation is for using 10cc of liquid Bt using a 30cc syringe and injecting the plant about 1.5 inches above the soil line. A quick google search for 30cc syringes should give you lots of options for finding some.

You should be able to get injection syringes at a farm supply store (used for treating livestock illnesses) or a drug store if you don't have time for mail order.
