BotaniGard 22WP Biological Insecticide is a biological wettable powder insecticide that controls the early and adult stages of insects. In turn, it prevents outbreaks and the need for rescue programs. It targets insects such as whiteflies, thrips, aphids, and mealybugs. This product contains Beauveria bassiana strain GHA spores which penetrate and grow inside the insect's body. Helps in resistance management and gives better control compared to most chemical programs. Can be used alone or tank-mixed with other pesticides. Best used on turfs, vegetables, ornamentals, nurseries, and greenhouses. Available in a one-pound bag.
