Here Come the Bugs!

The mild temperatures of the past winter came at a price and now it’s time to pay up. Bugs. Without freezing winter temperatures to reduce their populations the insect pests in my garden are back with a vengeance. Pest management is going to be tough this growing season, but I’m trying something new that gives me hope that I can stay one step ahead.

AzaGuard® Insecticide and Insect Repellant is a broad spectrum insecticide, nematicide and repellant. Here are a few points that convinced me to give AzaGuard® a try.

  1. It’s organic, non-toxic and safe to use both indoors and out.
  2. AzaGuard® contains the OMRI listed insect growth inhibitor Azadirachtin. This prevents insect growth, feeding and reproduction. It works on over 300 pests including aphids, beetles, grasshoppers, grubs, and whiteflies.
  3. The active ingredient Azadirachtin has a low impact on the environment and no effect on birds or other wildlife.
  4. In addition to being a growth inhibitor AzaGuard® is also a repellant that works on flying insects like house flies.
  5. AzaGuard® controls parasitic nematodes.
  6. I can mix AzaGuard® in my sprayer with other chemicals such as BioSafe System’s fungicide/bacteriacide OxiDate®.
  7. The packaging is designed with the environment in mind. Each spray bottle comes with 3 ampoules of water soluble product providing 96 fluid ounces of spray. All I have to do is pour the contents of 1 ampoule in the bottle and add water. When I that runs out I can mix up more without purchasing a second spray bottle.

If you want to try BioSafe® Systems AzaGuard® in your garden look for it at your local independent garden center or hardware stores such as True Value or United Hardware.

    My Knock Out Roses have brown spots and holes in the leaves. I don’t have a clue what is destroying them. Will AzaGuard work on them?

      Sounds to me like you may have more of a fungal problem, rather than an insect problem. You may have anthracnose on your roses. Are the leaves at all yellow? For disease problems on your roses, I can offer a product called ZeroTol Ready to Spray.
      ZeroTol kills disease on contact, without harsh chemicals. It leaves no residue and is easy to use. Call me, so I can learn more about your problem and work on finding you a solution! Toll-free 888-273-3088

    Will it take care of house crickets? I have them in my crawl space and they come up into the kitchen through cabinet bases. They are striped and drive me crazy!


    • Kristin Nikodemski says:


      AzaGuard is labelled for use on indoor and outdoor plants, not your indoor hard surfaces. Wish I could help you with this one. Crickets inside would make me crazy too!

  5. Is Azigard itself OMRI approved, or just one of the ingredients?
