Parasite Control is an all-natural granulated product with the active ingredient, Azadirachtin, extracted from seeds of the Neem tree. The Neem tree is native to India where it is called the “heal-all” for its incredibly beneficial properties. When applied to the soil, Parasite Control reduces the density and growth of pests and improves root and crop growth. It has been tested on lettuce to increase leaf size by 10% and weight by 20%, and decrease all parasitic nematodes by a range of 75-95%
At the beginning of pest infestations, use 9.1 lbs to 13.7 lbs per acre of land. Parasite Control can be used in quantities relative to the rate of infestation (i.e. use higher application rates for higher rates of parasite infestation). Do not apply prior to excessive rains since this may reduce product effectiveness.
Parasite Control is made of Neem cake granulates from the Neem Tree seed that contains 3.5% Azadirachtin. Azadirachtin is a powerful insecticide that is effective against almost 200 species of insects by acting mainly as an anti-feedant and growth disruptor. It is highly toxic to insects as the lethal dose (LD50) is of 15 μg/g for African Cotton Leafworm (S.littoralis) and at the same time has a very low toxicity to mammals.
This product is made from naturally derived ingredients and is non-toxic. It is an eco-friendly product that doesn’t leach from the soil to water tables. Appropriate land management practices should be used at all times with any pesticide; this material should be prevented from entering public or private water supplies (including wells) and any lake, stream, or river.
Parasite Control must be applied to the soil for proper efficacy. Applying the product to the soil can disrupt the growth of pests and also acts as an anti-feedant to protect crops.
• Effective against chewing, sucking, piercing, and boring insects.
• Effective against root knot, lesion, spiral, sting, and other pathogenic nematodes.
Parasite Control was tested on parasitic nematodes with great efficacy.
