  • How much Azamax should I use?

    Created by Emily Pendleton on

    Hello –

    I was just wondering, how much Azamax do I use in a 36 gallon hydro reservoir? Any directions or dosage instructions would be helpful.

    Thank you!

    Hi Emily –

    Applied systemically or as a foliar spray, Azamax is a highly effective botanical insecticide for use against spider mites, fungus gnats, thrips and many other airborne and soil borne pests. Best of all, this effective pest control product is OMRI Listed for use in organic crop production and will not harm earthworms or honeybees.


    For the most effective control, apply when pests are expected to appear or as soon as possible after they appear and are in immature stages.

    Hydroponics: Add 5 to 8 oz per 10 gallons of reservoir size. Agitate the mixture thoroughly until the product is thoroughly dispersed. Make 2-3 applications at 10-14 day intervals until the pest pressure has ended. With high insect pressure applications make applications every 5 to 7 days.

    NOTE: I recommend cutting use at least 3 weeks prior to harvest as I have found that circulating Azamax in reservoirs can result in latent traces of azadirachtin. To sensitive pallets, this can be detected in finished fruits.

    Foliar Application: Mix 1 to 2 oz. per gallon of water depending on pest levels. Spray at an interval of 7-10 days or as the situation warrants.

    Soil Drench: Mix 1/2 to 1 oz. per gallon of water and apply every 10-14 days. With high insect pressure, make applications every 5-6 days.

    Hope it helps!
