Azahar Insecticide is a botanical product for control of insects on indoor and outdoor plants including ornamental trees, shrubs, flowers, turfgrass, fruit trees and nut trees.
When used as a component of an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program, Azahar Insecticide provides an effective resistance management tool.
MODE OF ACTION:
Azahar Insecticide controls target pests on contact or by ingestion. The product acts on pests by way of repellence, anti-feedance, and interference with the molting process.
Azadirachtin, an insect growth regulator (IGR), mimics the pests’ hormones and disrupts distinct stages of growth and development of insects and mites. The primary mode of action of azadirachtin is an interference with synthesis and metabolism of ecdysone and the juvenile hormone. Ecdysone is the molting hormone of insects, and azadirachtin can regulate growth leading to death before or during molting.
