Mode of Action

LALGUARD AZA is a water-soluble, botanical insecticide applied by microinjection into the active sapwood of affected trees. The active ingredient, azadirachtin, is derived from the neem tree (Azadiracta indica), and is an extract of neem seeds (not neem oil). It is not a
neonicotinoid nor is it from the avermectin family of pesticides. Azadirachtin acts as an insect growth regulator, interfering with the metabolic process and molting of insects, has antifeeding properties, and reduces fecundity in female adults.


• Moves rapidly through the tree following injection (no long lag period for efficacy)
• Disrupts molting and growth of feeding insect pests
• Demonstrated antifeeding properties in adult insects
• Reduces fecundity in female adults
• Provides up to 2 years of efficacy
• Very low in toxicity, resulting in minimal risk to applicators, birds, bees and mammals in urban environments.
• Degrades naturally within tree tissues and does not persist in the environment
• Cost effective
