AzaGuard is an indoor/outdoor, OMRI Listed botanical insecticide/nematicide that controls and repels over 300 insect species across a wide range of ornamental, forestry and food and non-food crops. azadirachtin, extracted from the neem tree, is the active ingredient here. Insects are repelled by the taste and smell neem, but Azadirachtin also works as a molting/growth disruptor. This insect growth regulator (IGR) disrupts the life cycle between larval, pupal and nymphal stages by impeding the metabolism of ecdysone. Ecdysone is necessary for molting, without which the insect cannot mature into its next growth stage and will, ultimately, die. AzaGuard offers these repellent and control properties in an earth-friendly formula that meets all the requirements of the National Organic Program (NOP) and is not harmful to people, pets or wildlife (when used as directed).
