Certified Organic natural insecticide made from Azadirachtin
AzaMax contains botanical oils and a concentrated botanical extracts from the neem tree (Azadirachta indica A.Juss). Azadirachtin is one of the most widely researched botanical extracts in the world. AzaMax controls insects by disrupting the hormonal systems that regulate feeding, growth, development and reproduction. AzaMax affected insects stop feeding, stop moulting (stop growing) and lose interest in mating and egg-laying.
Because insects need to feed on AzaMax treated plant surfaces to be affected, its impact on beneficial insects is minor.
AzaMax is a natural insecticide produced using a patented process of extracting Azadirachtin from Neem seed kernel. Azadirachtin is one of nature’s most potent and broad-spectrum insecticides.
AzaMax has many modes of action against insect pests, but essentially it is an Insect Growth Regulator (IGR). IGRs control insect pests by causing severe mutative disruption to their growth and development. It makes the pests unfit and unable to progress through their life cycle and reproduce. This effect impacts on all life stages of the insects development across a wide spectrum of insect pests.
AzaMax is a strong anti-feedant due to its ability to block the feeding arousal signal of insect pests almost immediately after ingestion. AzaMax also slows the motility of the gut of insects having the effect of increasing the potency of ingested insecticides like Bt products, NPVs and other biological insecticides.
AzaMax is not a knockdown insecticide, it takes a little more time for insects to die. However, insects stop damaging plants immediately after coming into contact with AzaMax. Then, with sequential applications, the pest population dwindles due to starvation and growth regulation. Hence it is best to use AzaMax as part of a preventative program for complete insect population control.
