J.J. Mauget Co. announced its partnership with BioForest Technologies, Inc., a Canada-based pest management development and consulting company. Mauget is the sole U.S. distributor of BioForest’s TreeAzin systemic bioinsecticide product.
TreeAzin is formulated with azadirachtin, a natural extract of the neem tree seed, and is the only tree-injected neem seed product with an Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) listing.
“We’re very impressed with the efficacy of BioForest’s TreeAzin,” said Nate Dodds, president of J.J. Mauget Co. “This is a great product that works against tough pests like gypsy moth and emerald ash borer, and we’re proud to distribute TreeAzin throughout the U.S.”
TreeAzin is an anti-feedant and growth disruptor labeled for use against defoliating insects, budworms and pests like the gypsy moth. Research has also shown that very low doses of TreeAzin inhibit larval development and prevent adult emergence of emerald ash borer, working best when used in advance of infestation.
Though Mauget distributes TreeAzin, the product will retain its BioForest Technologies, Inc. label. The product will initially be available in one-liter bottles for use in liquid reloadable injection systems.
