EAB Publication by Kreutzweiser et al. – Environmental safety to decomposer invertebrates of azadirachtin as a systemic insecticide to control EAB

The non-target effects of anazadirachtin-based systemic insecticide used for control of wood-boring insect pests in trees were assessed on litter-dwelling earthworms, leaf-shredding aquatic insects, and microbial communities in terrestrial and aquatic microcosms. The insecticide was injected in to the trunks … Continue reading
