BotaniGard® ES and BotaniGard® WPare unique biological insecticides that are effective against a broad range of insects including white grubs, surface feeders, weevils, chinch bugs, and mole crickets. These products contain the highly successfulBeauveria bassianastrain GHA, a naturally occurringsoil fungus that attacks and kills hard-to-control turf pests.
BotaniGard is versatile enough to use as a stand-alone or as a tank-mix partner with many conventional pesticides. BotaniGard’s mode of action is unlike any conventional insecticide. Spores adhering to the host germinate and produce enzymes that attack and dissolve the cuticle, allowing it to penetrate the cuticle and grow into the insect’s body. As the insect dies, it will change color and eventually the entire body cavity becomes filled with fungal mass.
Superior formulation – highest spore concentration in a Beauveria-containing insecticide.
Unique mode of action – spores infect directly through the insect’s cuticle.
Insect control which equals or exceeds chemical insecticides.
Excellent tool for resistance management.
Cost effective – controls the early stages of insects, preventing population flare-ups and the cost of rescue treatments.
Excellent safety profile – large and diverse crop list and multiple use sites; reduced risk to workers and the environment.
Compatible for tank-mixes with many pesticides.
Exempt from residue tolerance and has a 0-day pre-harvest interval.
BotaniGard is a natural, environmentally-friendly insects, weevil and white grub control product and is safe for pets, animals and children.
Small treatment areas of BotaniGard ES: Use at a rate of 2 teaspoon (tsp.) per gallon of water.*
Small treatment areas of BotaniGard WP: Use at a rate of 1 tablespoon (tbl.) per gallon of water.*
Greenhouse, Shadehouse, Nursery and Landscape: Apply at a rate of 1-2 quarts (but no more than 3 quarts) of BotaniGard per 100 gallons of spray volume.*
Outdoor Field or Row Crops: Apply at a rate of 1/2 to 1 quart of BotaniGard per acre in 5 to 10 gallons per acre.
Turf: Apply at a rate of 2 to 8 ounces per 1,000 square feet. Apply in sufficient water to cover area, at least 1 gallon per 1,000 square feet is suggested.
In all cases, shake BotaniGard very vigorously and long enough to resuspend spores or loosen up the powder for best results.
Frequency: Apply BotaniGard at 5-10 day intervals. High insect populations, especially whitefly and aphids, may require application at 2-5 day intervals. Repeat applications for as long as pest pressure persists. There is no limit on the number of applications or total amount of BotaniGard ES which can be applied in one season. BotaniGard controls a wide variety of soft-bodied insects on turf and in greenhouse, field and nursery crops. It has excellent plant safety on a broad range of crops and turf. There is no limit to the number of times that BotaniGard can be applied in a season. A weekly application program can prevent insect population explosions and provide a level of control equal to or better than conventional chemical programs.
