AzaGuard is a non-toxic insecticide and nematicide with a superior active ingredient derived from neem seeds, azadirachtin. It controls insects in the larval, pupal, and nymphal stages by inhibiting growth, feeding, and reproduction. Use on outdoor and indoor flowers, fruit and vegetable gardens, trees, shrubs, and lawns to control over 300 species of insects. This plant-based insecticide is OMRI-Listed, which can be conveniently added into any organic gardening regiment. Commercial growers depend on American-made AzaGuard as a killer treatment for pesky bugs.


What is the active ingredient in AzaGuard?

AzaGuard’s primary active ingredient is a highly concentrated 3% Azadirachtin formulation. Azadirachtin, a chemical compound belonging to the liminoid group, is formulated through an extraction process of the neem tree, mainly from the seeds that yield the purest form of the neem extract. AzaGuard’s raw neem oil extract is then put through a complex biosynthesis to create a concentrated, high-grade Azadirachtin formula that yields a higher percentage of critical limonoid components including nimbin, nimbidinin, and salannin.


What is AzaGuard's mode of action?

AzaGuard Insecticide/Nematicide is a versatile IPM tool that allows for field application on over 150+ different fruit and vegetable crops while also being labeled for greenhouse ornamental applications. AzaGuard is most commonly applied in a foliar insecticide program and can be rotated and/or tank-mixed with other synthetic and botanical insecticides. For soil applications AzaGuard can be drenched into the soil profile, as well as chemigated directly through drip irrigation systems to control various subterranean root herbivores. AzaGuard is labeled to be applied through high and low volume sprayers, fogging applications, aerial applicators, and chemigated through various irrigation systems.

BT NOW®

Biological Insecticide

BT NOW is a water-based, biological insecticide that utilizes a novel strain of bacteria, Bacillus thuringiensis ssp. kurstaki (Btk), to offer targeted control of the caterpillars of certain moths and butterflies on a wide variety of crops. Ingestion of BT NOW paralyzes the insect’s digestive system within hours, halting further crop damage potential. The affected larvae die within 2-5 days.

Active Ingredients

  • Bacillus thuringiensis ssp. kurstaki strain EVB-113-19

Certifications

  • OMRI Listed
Yellow and black caterpillar crawling up broccoli florets
Caterpillar eating a red apple
Many caterpillars feeding on cabbage

Why BT NOW?

  • Easy to use liquid formulation
  • Four-hour REI — Zero-day PHI
  • Low residue — MRL exempt
  • Can be used in conjunction with many beneficials and pollinators
  • Ideal for IPM programs — Low resistance potential (IRAC GROUP: 11A)
  • Tank-mix compatible with many commonly used pesticides, fertilizers and adjuvants

What is BT NOW's mode of action?

The Bacillus thuringiensis ssp. kurstaki (Btk) bacteria found in BT NOW contains natural insecticidal endotoxins called “cry toxins”. When consumed by the larval stage of target lepidoptera pests, these toxins bind to specific receptors in the insect’s gut which immediately disrupts and paralyzes certain digestive functions. After the pest consumes Btk, plant tissue will be protected from further damage as the pest halts all feeding within hours. As the activated toxins disrupt membrane integrity in the caterpillar’s midgut, Btk spores enter the body, proliferate and kill the pest 2-5 days later.


Caterpillar Control in Fall Ornamentals

BT NOW, a water-based product containing a novel strain of Bacillus thuringiensis, effectively targets hatched caterpillars Trichogramma may have missed, giving growers the best chance of a successful harvest. This combination achieves excellent control of caterpillars without harmful residue and without disrupting beneficial insect populations.

How should BT NOW be used?

Bacillus thuringiensis ssp. kurstaki products have a long history of safe and effective use in agriculture, forestry, and ornamental pest management. When applied properly, Btk products control lepidoptera larvae as well as traditional synthetic chemistries while also preserving beneficial species.

BT NOW is most effective on young, actively feeding larvae. For optimal results, employ early scouting programs to identify target caterpillar infestations and apply at first signs of feeding or when scouting program identifies pest presence. Cover foliage thoroughly to ensure product is consumed by the pest. Repeat applications when necessary to maintain control.
