What is neem oil? Neem oil is a South Asian and Indian plant. It is known as an effective insecticide and the seeds have been used in oil, wax, and soap preparations. Neem oil can be extracted from any part of the tree, but the seeds have a higher concentration of insecticidal properties from a compound called Azadirachin And this is what gardeners love, the pesticide and anti-fungal properties. It is also non-toxic to animals such as birds, bees, fish, and wildlife. By using neem tree oil, plants are grown organically and surrounding animals within the area are safe.

Snails, slugs, caterpillars, aphids, thrips, mites, eggs-laying moths, and other pests must be controlled when the weather cools and winter approaches. At night, these crawlers are extremely busy. Instead of waiting for the damage to occur in the garden, it is nice to take proactive measures.

Snails and slugs can be controlled organically using any or all of the methods listed below:

  1. By spreading coffee powder (from freshly made coffee), broken eggshells (for egg eaters), and beer traps (from beer poured into plastic take-away containers) around the vegetable garden or,
  2. Control the spread of chewing and sucking insects including aphids, caterpillars, thrips, scales, mites, egg-laying moths, and others by spraying pure, organic, insecticide-grade neem oil diluted with water.

The best way to use neem oil is by diluting it in water and used as a spray. As an insecticide, it is used as a repellant most especially on mites, and can be used to control over 200 other eating or sucking bug species, such as scale, mealybugs, and whiteflies. When sprayed, neem oil fungicide is effective against fungus, mildews, and rusts. It is also thought to be beneficial for a variety of other conditions, including root rot, sooty molds, and black spots. Aside from this, you can use neem oil as a soil drench.
