AzaMax, What does it do?

With indoor growing becoming more and more popular every day, pests are taking over gardens more than ever before. In fact, most indoor growers in my area are reporting pests in their crops. It used to be just spidermites that took over. Now fungus gnats and thrips are gaining ground here as well. Pests can really be a big problem. Using toxic pesticides that are harmful, and some that are even illegal, is not the answer. While every grower agrees that it is vital to control these bugs for the benefit of all, there are also precious insects and micro organisms that we must protect. AzaMax is harmless to honeybees, earthworms, and soil microflora. It was in response to the concerns of pollution and toxicity that General Hydroponics added AzaMax to their product line.

AzaMax is a highly effective pest control method designed to decimate pest populations. It is made from completely organic active ingredients, specifically one, potent, bio-compound found in Neem oil. AzaMax contains Azadirachtin A&B and more than 100 limonoids.

  • It does not use  hard chemical solvents and fully uses food grade formulation ingredients.  
  • AzaMax is the only  smell-free product  and does not freeze during cold weather.    
  • AzaMax does not require any surfactants or sticking agents. 
  • AzaMax is OMRI listed and licensed in all 50 states.  
  • AzaMax is so safe and free of residue it can be applied on the day of harvest

AzaMax targets spidermites, thrips, fungus gnats, aphids, whiteflies and many other airborne and soil borne pests. AzaMax is an antifeedant and insect growth regulator and it controls pests through starvation and growth disruption. It also is a good systemic product that plants can easily uptake through roots for efficient control of sucking, mining and leaf eating pests, a rare feature among biological or biochemical pesticides.  

At the first sight of pests, use  AzaMax as a foliar spray or combine the spray with systemic applications per the labels directions.  Adjust the rate of AzaMax and the frequency of spray intervals to the intensity of the infestation and the density of your canopy. With the tempratures in my room, spider mites can hatch every three days. So if I get infested spraying happens every other day for 1 week. I really can’t say enough good things about this product, but I want to repeat my favorite thing about AzaMax: It’s is OMRI listed and licensed in all 50 states.

Comment from Tiger Lilly
Time August 7, 2010 at 9:26 am

Try doing a root drench with the AzaMax. Mix it with water, then pour it right on the rockwool. Give it to them every other day for a week. One thing to watch out for though is over watering. Rockwool gets really wet and stays really wet. The best thing to do next time is root your cuttings in Rapid Rooters. They are much less likely to get the fungus gnats than cuttings in rockwool. Good luck! Let us know how it goes!

Hey Alan, I am so bummed to hear that you had a turn with bad mites. Do you think there’s any chance the mites could have been re-introduced? Many mites have very rapid life cycles and can easily grow, lay eggs and web up in the blink of an eye. Especially in normal indoor garden temp ranges.

When is the best time to apply? Just before the lights go out? I noticed a white ish residue on tops of leaves next day, after spraying bottoms of leaves … Should I be washing down tops of leaves next day? How long into fruiting / flowering can this product be safely used without harming plants?

Comment from PennyWize
Time April 21, 2011 at 2:14 pm

Hi there Mainiac,
The best time to apply any foliar spray is shortly after the lights go out or an hour before they come on. The white residue is normal and should be rinsed off about 12 – 24 hours after the plant has been sprayed. I wouldn’t spray anything on developed flowers. Apply it to the root zone instead once flowers are somewhat developed. For fruiting plants, go ahead and apply it right up to the day of harvest but make sure to wash the produce well before eating it. It is non toxic to humans but it can cause mild irritation if inhaled, ingested or absorbed through the skin.

Use 15mls/gallon and do not mix it with fertilizer. Ph your water down to 5.5 and mix the Azamax, then let it run through the system for an hour or two. Then drain your system and refill with fresh nutrient solution and repeat after 5 – 7 days. You should see a difference within a few days but you have to keep on them or sometimes they come back.

If you are past the fourth week of bloom, I would not spray Azamax on the flowers. Just do a root drench at 10 – 15 mls/gallon once every 5 – 7 days. Do not mix with nutrient, ph adjusted water only. Ph your water to 5.5, add the Azamax and apply.

Absolutely. Just make sure you apply it down wind and wear a mask as it can be an irritant to the respiratory system. You can also apply it to the roots at 15ml/gallon and it will work systemically so the new growth will be treated with the azadirachtin. Apply it every five to seven days for three weeks and your pest problem should go away for good.

After reading these posts and hearing the solutions I have a few questions. I have a hydro setup and Im using rockwool. I have ran into fungus gnats on and off and would like to know if this can be used regularly to keep them from coming back. How would you use this product, can it be used with nutrients? How often? I change my water every 2 weeks and use RO water so changing it more often can be a real pain.

Comment from PennyWize
Time July 19, 2011 at 1:33 pm

Hi Greg,

Azamax is not the best cure for fungus gnats. I have heard of some people having good results but others that it did not help at all. Fungus gnats do not feed on plant tissue although the fungus gnat larvae do feed on plant roots. Adults feed on fungus in the growing medium. The best defense against them is to let your rock wool dry out a bit before irrigating again. The top of the cube should be dry to the touch before watering again. If you want to try the Azamax to see if it helps, try using 15mls/gal as a root drench and do not mix it with nutrient. Just add it to ph adjusted water (6 or below) and run it through the system several times over an 8 hour period. Then drain the system and add fresh nutrient solution. Repeat every five to seven days until the problem subsides. If they are not gone after three applications (3 weeks), then the product is most likely not going to be effective. Good luck!

Hi Carol. Thanks for the question. Well, foliar nematodes are a fairly new pest and according to everything I have read, there is no known way of controlling them. The best advice I can give would be to prune off all damaged leaves and apply the Azamax at 1oz per gallon. Hosta plants are deciduous, so in the fall once the leaves die off, so will the nematodes. Then next season, I would apply the Azamax as soon as the hostas start to emerge. Good luck!

azamax has worked pretty well for me so far ive gotten a few baby spidermites back but they do everything slow while the plant still grows..hydro shop guy said this stuff does slow them down the plants growth though.. my advice is to use a lot of azamax if you already have a bad infestation.. if its just a couple mites on a couple leaves just spray the area and see what happens.. if you don’t have time to experiment, just spray the whole plant and soil drench as well. i like to use this product at smaller dosages but more frequently then general hydro recommends..I’m using this as a preventative and all the way through.. I’ve had this stuff on my skin and honestly i think shampoo probably burns more then this does.. just my opinion<..I like this product and trust it.. the key is applying often.. don’t try and pinch to many pennies putting it on light. i know that’s what i wanna do cause it is kinda expensive but just hit those plants and let them be mite free.. btw. if any of you have heavily spidermite infested flowers or anything gross just throw those plants away and start over.. mites leave eggs everywhere

Hi Joe,
Yes, you can mix it with Neem oil if you want but I don’t see the benefit. You don’t need to wash the leaves at all with Azamax. The product breaks down within 24 hours and becomes completely inert. You can do a root drench application during bloom at a rate of 15mls/gallon. Although, the root drench is really only effective on soil born or dwelling insects. It will not effectively control insects living in the canopy of the plant.

Comment from tmpa_grwr
Time October 11, 2011 at 12:55 pm

I see that azamax impairs spider mites by slowing down their life cycle and causing them to think they’re still young during their adult cycle, causing them not to lay eggs. Would you recommend using it with other products such as liquid ladybug, which suffocates adults, to better help the effectiveness used in eradicating a spider mite infestation? Both products are organic, can be used up til harvest and both derived from oils which evaporate within 24hrs. Thanks

Comment from PennyWize

Hi Dot. It is best to wait at least several days either before or after applying sulfur. Do not use them simultaneously and do not apply Azamax while using a sulfur burner. Thanks for the question. Good luck!

Yes, you can use other “contact killer” pesticides with Azamax. I would think twice before using Liquid Ladybug though. It has a very lemony odor and might affect the flavor of the produce. That is just a guess though. Thanks for the question!

Thanks a lot penny. I’ve been using azamax for quite some time now, almost done with second bottle. I find myself only having to use it once every 2 weeks at low strength. I’ve been using it with a spreader sticker, coco wet and found it holds up a little better. If I use these 2 things in conjunction with each other, do I need to wash the foliage later? Will I have problems down the road with clogging up the stomatas? Thanks for your time!

No, the stomata will not get clogged unless you are over using the product which it sounds as though they are not. Any oil based product will clog the plants stomata if applied too often. This is why we only recommend using Azamax every 5 – 7 days. Thanks!

i am an indoor dirt farmer and if azamax is all organic why does one comment from penny wise say use up to day of harvest, then in another they say do not use into 4 week of flowering? They also said no need to rinse of azamax then contradict themselves later stating rinse 12 to 24 hrs after treatment?? So wich is true and wich isn’t for both of these contradictions??? I have azamax and ready to use to rid my crops of spidermites but need solid info!!! Little devils are going to ruin my crops!!!

Comment from pHTestKitten
Time January 5, 2012 at 4:19 pm

These contradictions both deal with the method of application and mode of action of AzaMax. AzaMax is a systemic product, as such you are feeding it to the plant, either by foliar application or through the roots. There are benefits to both methods of application and they can be used in conjunction.

If you are applying AzaMax as a root drench or watering it into the soil you can indeed use it up to the day of harvest, and do not need to rinse it out. However these circumstances will rarely arise because ideally you have been feeding AzaMax regularly, and there is enough in the plant to ride out the last couple of weeks.

If you are using AzaMax as a foliar application, you would want to discontinue use during bloom, as you would with all foliar sprays, to prevent the build up of residues and to avoid moisture densities that can lead to mold and mildew issues. You would also want to rinse the leaves, as the rinsing of the plant leaves after 12 to 24 hours is simply to prevent the leaf stomata from getting clogged by the inert oils that are the carrier’s of the active ingredient.

The mode of action of AzaMax is unique, the bugs are affected by it when they attempt to eat your plants, not as much when it is sprayed directly on them, keep in mind that you are feeding AzaMax to your plant to make your plant an inhospitable environment to bugs.

Personally, I recommend a combination of foliar and systemic applications when first using AzaMax, and continued systemic use throughout the life of the plant to maintain levels. The combined applications will help deal with any lingering pest problems, and the continued use will prevent any resurgence of the problem!

Comment from hydromonkee
Time January 23, 2012 at 4:44 pm

Hi Jojo,

Did you apply the Azamax as a root drench or as a foliar spray? Azamax is safe as a root drench up to the day of harvest, it is an organic product with no harmful compounds and will not negatively effect the flavor or quality of your crops. As a foliar spray you would want to be more careful as moisture and residues can affect a plant in late flower, the active ingredient itself is not harmful, but you really don’t want to be spraying anything late into flower and one of the unique benefits of Azamax is continued protection without spraying. That said, it takes about 30 days for Azamax to fully break down and no longer offer protection against pests.

Time February 27, 2012 at 11:38 am

How close to harvest did you spray? Azamax is safe up to the day of harvest as a systemic root drench. As a foliar, while it is a safe organic compound, there is likely to be residue on the plants of you are too close to harvest. Azamax is also not considered a ‘knock down’ product, it takes time to be fully effective and it’s mode of action is not direct contact with bugs, it needs to be ingested. When you are within a week or two of harvest there really isn’t anything you can safely do to kill the bugs, you are better off trying to remove them by hand with a vacuum or brush, and paying closer attention next time so that you notice them before it’s too late for effective controls. Azamax is highly effective as a preventative, in the future if you regularly treat your plants with Azamax, there won’t be any bugs to worry about at this stage!

I’ve been using AzaMax on my indoor garden from day 1 of veg, all the way up through what is now 6 weeks of veg and going to be entering the flowering stage very shortly. Very bad problem with spidermites in my area this year, so wanted to prevent them from the beginning to avoid any problems. I’ve been using as a foliar treatment in strengths starting at 15ml/gal and now up to 30ml/gal. I guess I didn’t thoroughly read the directions, as I have not been lowering the ph of the water to 5.5 like I’ve seen stated here in the comments. After dechlorinating my tap water through bubbling with an airstone, my ph is right around neutral at 7. My first question is, how much does this reduce the effectiveness of AzaMax? Have I wasted this product and am now actually vulnerable to an infestation when I thought my garden was protected? I have not spotted a single spidermite, let alone any pest aside from a few straggling fungus gnats, but now headed into flower I want to be as sure as possible. Next question is, is it necessary to dechlorinate the water before adding AzaMax? I always dechlorinate my tap water before adding organic nutes/watering my organic “soiless” medium, but was just curious. I suppose I have one more question, how much of a concern is there of plugging the leaves stomatas if not rinsing off 12-24 hours after the application? I’ve always applied every 5-7 days, but never rinsed due to the hearsay of “no need to rinse while using this product.” The only time that I have “rinsed” would be with weekly foliar feedings, usually alternating half-weeks with AzaMax treatments. My apologies for the long comment/question, and I thank you for your time and information in advance. Thanks!

It sounds like Azamax is working great for you. I wouldn’t continue with foliar applications at this point. You can apply it to the root zone at this point once a week at a rate of 10 ml/gal and it will work systemically. The leaf stomata can get clogged but because you are discontinuing the foliar applications, I wouldn’t worry about it.

So much information… don’t even know how to go about ph’ing my water in a cost-effective manner.
I have a horrible thrips problem in my (small) outdoor garden. They are terrorizing my tomatoes and peppers. The heirloom tomatoes contracted TSWV last year and the plants (ALL of my nightshades) had to be destroyed. I have been trying Spinosad (perhaps the thrips have developed a resistance already) and neem (hydrophobic clarified… possibly garbage). I have high hopes for this product. It will arrive at my doorstep very soon… anxious.

What is the best way to go about using it in this specific situation.

Adjusting your pH should not be very costly. Our pH down liquid costs about $11.00/qt and just a few milliliters per gallon of water is all you need to drop the pH a full point. Add about 3ml/gal to your water and then add 15ml/gal of Azamax and spray it heavily on your plant early in the morning or early in the evening. Repeat every three to four days. After 3 or 4 applications your thrips should be gone.
