How Guard 'n Spray Works
Guard 'n Spray was developed using food grade natural active ingredients to treat and control plant pests and fungi. By utilizing its natural active ingredients, Guard 'n Spray starves, desiccates and suffocates the plant pests and fungi that attack your garden.
Guard 'n Spray treats and controls spider mites, broad mites, aphids, fungus gnats, flies, beetles, and thrips during all stages of the organism's growth phases (eggs, larvae, and adults).
Guard 'n Spray contains botanical oils which plant pests are attracted to and will consume. Upon consumption, plant pests cease to digest needed proteins causing them to starve. Additionally, the active ingredients stick to and clog plant pests' spiracles or breathing tubes, suffocating the plant pests. As the plant pest is starving and suffocating, Guard 'n Spray's other active ingredients are simultaneously drying out the plant pest's exoskeleton. When treating and controlling plant pests in the larvae stage Guard 'n Spray should be diluted and drenched (watered) into the soil or growing media where the larvae live.
The natural active ingredients in Guard 'n Spray treat and control fungi by stopping their ability to reproduce. This makes Guard 'n Spray ideal for treating and controlling powdery and downy mildews. When applied, the active ingredients in Guard 'n Spray dry out the reproductive portions of the fungi; this is imperative since these fungi live inside the plant tissues and can only be seen when they break through the plant's skin to reproduce. Upon application Guard 'n Spray stops the fungi's initial start of germinating on the plant's skin. It is important to foliar spray Guard 'n Spray before the fungi have a chance to contaminate plants. If a fungus is visible to the naked eye, spray Guard 'n Spray at full strength directly on the fungus.
Using Guard 'n Spray
Shake bottle well and add 15-30 ml of Guard 'n Spray to each gallon of water. Spray directly on visible pests and all parts of the plant (underside of leaves and all node points). Use Guard 'n Spray once a day or more often depending on level of infestation."
Recommended use of Guard 'n Spray is 1 to 3 times per day depending on infestation level.
Guard 'n Spray can function as a soil drench to prevent soil-dwelling pests and diseases.
If diluting Guard 'n Spray for maintenance purposes, the recommended dilution ratio is 3 mL of Guard 'n Spray to 5 mL of water (Note: the stronger more concentrated Guard 'n Spray is, the more effective it is). Guard ‘n Spray should not be used at a rate higher than that recommended without first testing it’s effects on an inconspicuous area of your crop.
For foliar spraying Guard 'n Spray is compatible for use in a fogging and atomizer systems.
Fogger and Atomizer Systems
Utilizing a fogger or atomizer system to applying Guard 'n Spray to plants is very effective because the aerosolization of the active ingredients provides a blanket of protection for your plants. The finer the droplets of Guard 'n Spray become, the more active the botanical oil constituents become which increases the effectiveness.
