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.
- It's organic, non-toxic and safe to use both indoors and out.
- 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.
- The active ingredient Azadirachtin has a low impact on the environment and no effect on birds or other wildlife.
- In addition to being a growth inhibitor AzaGuard® is also a repellant that works on flying insects like house flies.
- AzaGuard® controls parasitic nematodes.
- I can mix AzaGuard® in my sprayer with other chemicals such as BioSafe System's fungicide/bacteriacide OxiDate®.
- 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.
