New Biopesticide Available From BioWorks

BioWorks, a supplier of biopesticides and plant nutrition products, has announced the launch of a new biopesticide, BotaniGard MAXX, an IPM tool for a variety of insects and spider mites.


A new mycoinsecticide with a quick knockdown effect, BotaniGard MAXX is based on the combination of natural pyrethrins and Beauveria bassiana Strain GHA. They are formulated together in an emulsifiable dispersible oil and represent the latest generation of biopesticides.

The interaction between Beauveria bassiana Strain GHA and natural botanical pyrethrins is synergistic. This combination is said to result in multiple modes of action and pest control outcomes comparable to those obtained when using synthetic chemical alternatives.

“BotaniGard MAXX will be an important new tool for many growers,” said Joe Gionta, Director of Marketing and Sales at BioWorks. “It gives our customers additional environmentally responsible and reliable ways to control whiteflies, aphids, thrips, spider mites, and more.”
