Mammoth Microbes Mammoth Biocontrol PI Preventative Insecticide Questions & Answers
Why use a preventative insecticide?
MB-PI has been specifically formulated to prevent insect and mite infestations of plants. Typically by the time a cultivator detects an infestation of insects or mites, significant damage has already been done to their plants. The advantage of using MB-PI is that the cultivator significantly lowers the risk of an infestation at a fraction of the cost of what the plant is worth.
What is the underlying technology of MAMMOTH Biocontrol-Preventative Insecticide (MBPI), and how does it work?
MB-PI prevents insect and mite infestations by utilizing a dual mode of action (MOA). The first MOA is as a suffocant which uses oil to coat the insect and/or mite, causing blockage of the spiracles (air holes) resulting in death due to asphyxiation. The second MOA is the way in which MB-PI utilizes the natural compounds in thyme that act as a natural deterrent for insect and mite colonization and subsequent propagation.
What's the advantage/difference between MB-PI and other similar products?
MB-PI has been tested on cannabis plants specifically, and is a proprietary formulation made with natural compounds found in thyme oil to prevent mite and insect infestation. When applied according to the directions on the label, MB-PI is highly effective in preventing an infestation, which enables your plant to reach its full yield potential.
If you’re wondering how MB-PI compares to neem-based products: while neem-based products have been shown over time to be efficacious, the active ingredient in Neem, azadirachtin, might be associated with health problems.
After several years of research, we identified the components of thyme oil that are responsible for preventing spider mite infestation, and that are equally efficacious to neem-based products in preventing infestation.
While products that contain generic thyme oil can accomplish some level of pest prevention, it is nowhere near the level that our product does due to the specific components of thyme that we identified and included in our MB-PI formulation.
