Neem In the Garden
Neem oil is considered quite useful when it’s applied daily to young plants. This oil should be diluted with water when spraying on plants in the garden. It’s non-toxic to birds, wildlife, fish and bees. According to some studies, it’s safe and effective for plant growth. Neem oil is one of the safest oils to be used in your home.
Neem oil is commonly used in the form of an insecticide. It’s quite effective when applied as standard soil drench. Once this oil enters the plant’s vascular system, it’s consumed by insects during feeding. Due to this, insects cease or reduce feeding. It also prevents larvae from maturing, and interrupts or reduces mating behavior. In some cases, the oil can also kill insects.
Neem oil is also an excellent mite repellent. It’s used to manage more than 200 species of sucking and chewing insects according to different products.
Last but not the least, it’s also an effective fungicide against mildews, rusts and fungi. It’s also considered useful for many other kind of issues, including black spot, root rot and sooty mold.
Neem oil is one of nature’s wonderful plants and oils with amazing health benefits just like tea tree oil, coconut oil, avocado and witch hazel.
