PyGanic is a broad-spectrum contact insecticide synthesized from Chrysanthemums (pyrethrins) to knockdown and control crop damaging insects. It is OMRI listed and NOP compliant for organic use. PyGanic is compatible with IPM, farm safety and Worker Protection Standards (WPS) given its user friendly toxicity profile. It is ideal for Organic growers who need insecticide options for hard-to-control insects.
Note: Due to potential bee toxicity, PyGanic is only recommended after other options are exhausted and consultation with the Green Earth staff.
Grandevo® is an advanced, cross-spectrum insecticide that offers protection against chewing and sucking insects. With up to 14 days of residual control, Grandevo gives growers a powerful new tool to strengthen their pest management strategies in IPM or organic programs. Grandevo provides this performance with no toxicity to pollinators or other beneficials. Grandevo is recognized as fully compliant for use on organic crops by the National Organic Program (NOP) and is certified by the Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI).
EcoTrol Plus® from KeyPlex attacks pest insects through their octopamine receptor, which is a key mite and insect neurotransmitter that regulates movement, heart rate, behavior and metabolism. The product prevents the transmission of neurological signals and leads to characteristic signs of toxicity such as excitation, immobilization and/or knockdown, followed by death. EcoTrol is formulated to deliver maximum performance with minimal environmental impact. The active ingredients of EcoTrol are natural oils.
Javelin WG is a biological insecticide specific for use against Lepidoptera larvae as listed on the label. Javelin WG must be eaten by the larvae to be effective. Since Javelin WG is most effective against small, newly hatched larvae, an early scouting program to determine early infestations is recommended. After consuming a lethal dose of Javelin WG, larvae stop eating within an hour, but may remain on the foliage until they die, usually within several days. Affected larvae move more slowly and tend to become shriveled and discolored before dying.
Monterey B.t. Biological Insecticide is a natural bacterium that controls worms and caterpillars on fruits, vegetables, ornamentals and shade trees.

Molt-X® is an emulsifiable concentrate formulation containing 3% of the active ingredient azadirachtin - the most potent of the insect-active compounds from the neem tree. While it is derived from neem seed, Molt-X is not a neem oil. Molt-X has multiple modes of action, making it an ideal material for an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) and organic programs. Insects treated with Molt-X become sluggish, stop feeding, and fail to mature and reproduce.
Bonide® Diatomaceous Earth is an indoor and outdoor crawling insect killer from Bonide that controls beetles, cockroaches, ants, silverfish and more. Applied as a dust or slurry, Diatomaceous Earth kills insects on contact and by ingestion within 48 hours of contact.
BotaniGard® and Mycotrol® are 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 bassiana strain GHA, a naturally occurring soil fungus that attacks and kills hard-to-control turf pests. 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, ultimately leading to death.
BotaniGard® MAXX combines the technology in Mycatrol and BotaniGard for comprehensive coverage. It uses multiple modes of action for quick knock-down and control of aphids, thrips, weevils, whiteflies and more. It uses natural pyrethrins (beauveria bassiana strain GHS). It is an excellent partner for use with BotaniGard. The combination of Beauveria bassiana strain GHA and natural pyrethrins provides multiple modes of action. The results are comparable to those obtained from conventional chemical alternatives.
