How it Works: Purely Green Bio-Pesticide is not a poison. Bio-Pesticide is a broad-spectrum contact and systemic bactericide, fungicide, and insecticide. Increases plant sugar content (Brix) from 20-50%. Stimulates natural plant resistance against insects and diseases. It penetrates and dissolves lipid cellular membranes of insects. This causes cells to leak and collapse, destroying respiratory functions resulting in dehydration and death of the insect. It interferes with cellular metabolism and growth hormone production during metamorphosis. It dissolves the lubrication in the insect’s joints leading to paralysis. The extracts emulsify bacteria thus stopping their reproduction cycle. It strips the insect’s organic shields (wax, biofilm, etc.), rendering it defenseless against subsequent treatment. The extracts impact the exoskeleton structure of pests upon contact by disrupting the molecular structure of the chitin and other protein substances that protect the insect. This triggers deterioration of the insect’s spiracles and tracheal system causing suffocation. The insect has no defense. No immunity is possible. When pests ingest sprayed plants, Bio-Pesticide breaks down their digestive systems. It can be used on all crops, turf, ornamentals, pets, livestock, and in and around structures. It complies with EPA regulatory requirements because it is exempt from registration under the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) as a minimum risk pesticide.
One Gallon $135.00
(Not available to ship to AK, AL, CT, IL, IN, LA, MD, ME, MS, NM or Canada.)
Cost: Dilute Super Concentrate 3-oz./gallon. One gallon treats 42 acres. Costs range from $3.33 to $1.07 per acre depending upon the quantity purchased.
Value: Savings are substantial. Growers report synthetic pesticide costs from $50.00 to $70.00 per acre. This without considering the cost of personal protective equipment and contaminated packaging disposal. (Source: https://farmdocdaily.illinois.edu/)
