What is ProvisionGARD™?

aboutusPROVISIONGARD™ is a water-based coating that contains an active insect-growth-regulator (IGR) ingredient to control insect infestation of the packaged product for over 2 years by preventing insects from evolving through their lifecycle stages.

As insects contact the surface of the PROVISIONGARD™ coated packaging, they absorb the insect growth regulator and cease evolving to their next stage of the growth cycle and die without contributing to insect population growth.

What differentiates the PROVISIONGARD™ active ingredient from widely used pesticides is that this technology is based on naturally occurring substances found only in insects. It is not harmful to children, birds, dogs, cats, or other mammals and bees.
