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.

Introducing new AzaGuard® formulation from BioSafe Systems

BioSafe Systems logo

EAST HARTFORD, CT — BioSafe Systems is excited to announce the release of a new and improved formulation of AzaGuard Insecticide/Nematicide. A common inert used in emulsified concentrates was recently put on the EPA watch list. To be proactive, BioSafe Systems underwent the process of reformulating AzaGuard and updating the label through the EPA to produce a more sustainable botanical insecticide which adheres to the company’s mission of providing highly effective but sustainable crop protection solutions. Additionally, over 30 new crops were added to the label including arugula, globe artichokes, pomegranates and cranberries to meet the increasing need for effective organic insect control solutions.

AzaGuard is a 3% Azadirachtin Botanical Insecticide utilizing the technical material that remains below 20% by weight to maintain high levels of other important limonoids. The inclusion of these important limonoids in AzaGuard enhances the efficacy of the active ingredient as an insect growth regulator, insect repellant and anti-feedant. In addition, AzaGuard is formulated in the U.S. under strict quality control conditions from technical material extracted from newly harvested neem seeds. These manufacturing efforts ensure that AzaGuard maintains the maximum potency until used by our customers.

Research shows AzaGuard® effective against leaf miners in ornamentals

BioSafe Systems logo

EAST HARTFORD, CT — Leaf Miners are difficult pests to manage in greenhouse production of ornamental plants. Leaf Miner adults lay eggs in plant tissue and the larvae feeds and develops within the leaf, causing considerable damage.

At BioSafe Systems we’re constantly striving to provide sustainable and effective solutions to real world issues that affect our customers and growers. In June 2014, we initiated a lab study to assess the efficacy of our OMRI listed and EPA approved product AzaGuard to prove that this insecticide/nematicide is effective in managing leaf miners on greenhouse ornamentals.

The experimental design consisted of a number of Gerbera Daisy’s being held until leaf miners reached a level of about five mines per leaf. There were 15 different treatments applied and a water control, each replicated six times. Weekly sampling of all treatments continued until July 30, 2014.

The study identified AzaGuard as an effective option in controlling Leaf Miners on ornamentals. AzaGuard was one of the few products that provided excellent leaf miner control, reducing leaf miners to fewer than five mines per leaf by the second week of the trial.
