The US EPA has approved a newly expanded label for BioSafe Systems’ AzaGuard Botanical Insecticide/Nematicide, including expanded use rates, new pests, and two new use sites.
AzaGuard’s use rates have been expanded to allow for a greater treatment range and better efficacy against strong infestations. In some cases, these expanded rates represent a doubling of the amount of AzaGuard used per acre of treated crops.
In addition to these expanded rates, several new use sites and pests have been added to the label. AzaGuard can now be applied to mushrooms and manure piles to treat for Mushroom flies, Nematodes, and Phorid flies. New pests for other food crops include grasshoppers and locusts, mites, and chafers. Other pest groups, including flies, moths, and grubs, have been expanded to include more sub-species.
AzaGuard is a 3% Azadirachtin insect growth regulator that is OMRI Listed for Organic Use, and can be tank mixed with other BioSafe Systems’ chemicals as part of a complete pesticide program. AzaGuard is available in 32 oz. Tip N’ Pour containers providing precise measurement, and also in a 1 gallon size for larger applications.
