Our most popular products include:

Thuricide Concentrate is a biological insecticide with Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) for use on fruits, vegetables, shade trees, and ornamentals plants to treat a variety of leaf-feeding worms. Pests treated include bagworms, tent caterpillars, gypsy moths, cabbage loopers, and tomato hornworms. Hi-Yield Thuricide may be applied up to and including the day of harvest.

This spray contains pyrethrins, a botanical insecticide (derived Chrysanthemum cinerariifolium) for use on vegetables, fruits, roses, flowers and other ornamentals. It’s a fast acting, effective way to kill aphids, beetles, webworms, leafhoppers and many other garden pests and can be used up to the day of harvest.
This easy-to-use pellet formulation kills slugs, snails, earwigs, cutworms, sowbugs and pillbugs. The primary ingredient is Spinosad, derived from a naturally-occurring soil dwelling bacterium.
Neem oil is pressed from the seeds of the Indian Neem tree and has been used for centuries to control pests as a foliar plant spray. Mix with mild liquid dish soap as an emulsifier for best results.
Diatomaceous Earth (often referred to as “DE”) is an off white talc-like powder that is the fossilized remains of marine phytoplankton. When sprinkled on a bug that has an exoskeleton (such as ants, fleas or bed bugs) it compromises their waxy coating. On a microscopic level, the particles are extremely sharp, damaging the exterior of the bug’s body and causing them to dehydrate. To mammals, DE is totally nontoxic (we could even EAT it!)
GreenCure® fungicide is recommended for use on over 150 different flowers, trees, houseplants, fruits, vegetables, and turfs. Unlike other fungicides, GreenCure® fungicide is not a toxic chemical. Its active ingredient, potassium bicarbonate, is commonly used in food products, but in this patented formula it is a highly effective, more sensible fungicide. It can even be used for indoor growing. GreenCure® fungicide is OMRI Listed for Organic Use.
