Neem Oil is a safe and effective control for over 200 species of insects. Neem works by disrupting the insect's feeding habits and reproductive cycles. As the insect starves, it cannot reproduce. We have found Neem to be extremely effective on Aphids, Mealy Bugs, and Scale.
Neem Oil also battles fungus and virus.
The best way to prevent unwanted guests from living on your plants is to spray with Neem Oil every couple of months. Be sure to include the pots and benches too!
