For years, many medical marijuana growers have used neem oil as a safe and effective way to treat their plants for unwanted insects. Neem oil works on a variety of garden pests and is safe to handle, making it a solid choice for growers trying to produce a quality organic medicine. My complaint of neem oil is its unpleasant odor and the need for almost constant application to irradiate infestations. Neem also has a tendency to solidify at lower temperatures, making foliar applications more difficult.
The people of Gordan’s have taken out the bad qualities of neem and left us with the good qualities in their product, Azatrol. Azatrol is an odorless neem extract containing the active ingredient azadirachtin. Azadirachtin is the insecticidal ingredient found in neem. With its high concentration of azadirachtin, Azatrol is the most effective neem-based insecticide on the market. Azatrol is also unique in that it can be applied as a foliar treatment or added directly to your reservoir for root application.
Unlike most other insecticides, Azatrol attacks the insects in a few different ways. First, it acts as a anti-feed. Bugs do not want to consume any azadirachtin, so they avoid feeding on treated plants.
Second, Azatrol works as a growth regulator. An insect that absorbs or consumes Azatrol is unable to molt to their next stage. In other words, an egg can’t hatch into a larvae, a larvae can’t molt into an adult, etc. Most insects have fast gestation periods and large birth numbers. Stopping insect development before they can reproduce drastically reduces the population.
The third way Azatrol is effective is as an anti-ovipositor. Insects look for good places to lay their eggs to ensure a successful offspring. When Azadirachtin is present, an insect will not lay their eggs.
Azatrol is OMRI listed and therefore meets guidelines for organic production. Azatrol is a quality product that combines the effectiveness of chemical insecticides with the safety of an organic product.
