AzaGuard Insecticide Nematicide is an organic insecticide that helps reduce insect pressure and damage to plants. This insect growth regulator insecticide/nematicide uses Azadirachtin as its active ingredient which effectively reduces insect pressure and damage to plants. Along with organic surfactants in AzaGuard, this insecticide provides a multiple mode of action that will control over 300 different types of insects all through the season including nematodes, cinch bugs, and sod webworms. It features a broad label of greenhouse crops including vegetables, fruits, and herbs. It also guarantees to have an immediate effect on insect larvae. It can be used on food crops, shrubs, ornamentals, trees, and turfgrass (including golf courses and athletic fields). It can also be used for non-food uses, in greenhouses, interiorscapes, shadehouses, mushroom houses, and nursery uses, and in commercial and industrial areas. It is a great tool for superintendents to keep insects off of greens and fairways. It will reduce nematodes when ZeroTol 2.0 is tank mixed along with AzaGuard.

For controlling and repelling insects such as aphids, armyworms, beetles, budworms, cutworms, fungus gnats, houseflies, leafhoppers, leafminers, loopers, leafrollers, and other caterpillars, mealybugs, mushroom flies (or sciarid flies), sawflies, scales, thrips, webworms, weevils, whiteflies; and plant parasitic nematodes such as burrowing, dagger, golden and various root knot nematodes.
AzaGuard is an emulsifiable concentrate containing 3.0% azadirachtin by weight. It has been evaluated on a wide variety of ornamental, forestry, and food crops. No phytotoxicity at recommended field rates has been observed. AzaGuard is an insect growth regulator and does not control adult insects. However, AzaGuard is also effective as a repellent towards some adult species.
MODE OF ACTION
AzaGuard controls insects in the larval, pupal, and nymphal stages by interfering with the metabolism of ecdysone. Insects typically die between larval to larval, larval to pupal, nymph to nymph molts, or during adult eclosion.
AzaGuard can be applied as a foliar spray or a drench to soil or soil-less media (e.g., greenhouses and mushroom houses) to control insects and nematodes. When needed, soil drenches can also be used to control soil-borne pests, including soil-borne larvae of foliar insect pests. When applying as a drench, avoid excessive leaching. AzaGuard can also be applied through sub-surface soil treatment equipment (e.g. turf grass). To repel adult flies, apply through fogging equipment.
AzaGuard may be applied using any powered or manual pesticide application equipment, which includes but is not restricted to: high-volume, low-volume, ultra-low volume, electrostatic, fogging, and chemigation. Follow the original manufacturer’s recommendations when using these types of equipment.
For outdoor and field applications, apply AzaGuard at the application rates in sufficient water to ensure adequate coverage. Conventional application equipment: apply in a minimum 30 gallons of water per acre.
Aerial equipment: apply in maximum of 3 gallons of water per acre.
For optimum results, 2 to 3 applications made at 7 to 10 day intervals is recommended, unless otherwise specified.
Foliar applications should be made to both sides of leaves. In addition, a surfactant used as per the manufacturer’s recommendations may improve product performance. The addition of a non-phytotoxic crop oil at rates not exceeding 1.0% (volume / volume) generally enhances insect control.
What are the cautions for potential harm to our insect pollenators who land on these chemicals?
AzaGuard Insectide/Nematicide is very toxic to birds and aquatic invertebrates. Per the manufacturer, there are no other precautions for pollenators. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.
