Our integrated pest management (IPM) products include biological, cultural and chemical controls that target pests while minimizing risks to people, property and the environment. Our IPM lineup features products like Athena IPW, a broad-spectrum, plant-derived insecticide that controls a wide range of sucking and chewing insects. Another option is PureCrop1, an organic, plant-essential oil formula effective against mites, aphids and other soft-bodied pests. For organic gardeners, we offer Neem oil insecticide/fungicide made from pressed neem seeds to control insect and mite infestations. 

If you need something stronger, we carry Nulife Scarid 10, a bifenthrin-based miticide/insecticide that quickly knocks down pests like mites, thrips and whiteflies. Mr 24/7 is a liquid horticultural oil that suffocates and controls many plant pests, from spider mites to aphids and scale.

Neem Oil & Plant Washes

Neem oil is a natural, plant-based product that has a variety of uses in the garden. It can be used as an insecticide, fungicide and nematicide, making it a valuable tool for preventing pests and diseases in your plants. Neem oil is also effective in improving the health of your plants by providing them with essential nutrients. When used in hydroponics, neem oil can help to create a more balanced and healthy root system, which can lead to healthier plants overall.

Insecticides & Pesticides

Pests require constant monitoring as the numbers in the grow room can increase at a quick rate. Monitoring techniques include visual inspection of flying insects, colour changes in the leaves or using sticky fly traps to highlight a pest problem before visible signs can be seen. Prevention of pest infection is always better than cure, so products that aid in increasing the plan's immune system are an easy way to reduce the chances of pest infestation. The disease affects the health and vigour of the plant. Many diseases you may get in the grow room are difficult to control so it is important to keep the nutrient solution piping and grow room clean and sterile; using a range of sterilising techniques such as Hydrogen Peroxide, Citro Fresh, UV and Ozone. Silica can also be used as a natural barrier to prevent the disease from entering the cells. Hydro Experts has a range of products to monitor and control Pests & Diseases.


Some of the more commonly known phytoalexin inducers used in crop production include salicylic acid, chitin and chitosan, phosphorous acid and phosphonate fungicides. Other growers prefer to select from a wide range of commercial fungicide or bactericide spray products, attempting fast and direct control. Both of these approaches can lead to other issues. For example, chemical sprays for fungus problems can cause resistance to build up within populations of disease pathogens, making the product ineffective after just a few applications.
