Description: BotaniGard is an organic naturally occurring fungus that attacks the insect on contact. In nature there are strains of fungus that attack specific insects. And in developing new BotaniGard, we isolated a strain that attacks whiteflies, thrips, aphids and other soft-bodied sucking insects. Using a proprietary process to mass produce this living spore, BotaniGard contains spore concentrations over 10,000 times greater than occur in nature. The spores attach themselves by either spray contact or by contact with sprayed foliage. They germinate, then penetrate the insect growing rapidly causing mortality. BotaniGard spores are alive and maybe adversely affected by temperature extremes or prolonged contact with water.
Common Rose Pests Controlled:
Aphids, Whitefly, & Flower Thrips.
Botanigard is an excellent organic alternative to conventional insecticides for the control of thrips, aphids, mealybugs, and whiteflies on fruits, vegetables, herbs, and ornamental plants.
Rate & Combinations:
5 tbl. per 4 gals. of water. Botanigard does not need any additional adjuvants for effectiveness. It can be mixed with most insecticides to broaden control, it should not be mixed with fungicides.
