Neem Oil as a Pesticide

Jun 9, 2010
Like other neem based products, neem oil too, is used for multiple purposes. Besides other varied uses, neem oil can be effective used as a pesticide and fungicide. It is helpful in repelling a number of pests like thrips, whiteflies, mealy bugs etc. Also, it can be used as a household pesticide for cockroaches, ant and houseflies.

Below is the procedure of using neem oil on plants to protect them from pests or insects.

Step 1
One tablespoon neem oil is generally recommended per gallon. Hence, one can use a little less than a teaspoon into a spray bottle which can generally hold around 32 ounces of water.

Step 2
Since oil and water do not mix well, one would need an emulsifier to help disperse the neem oil within water.

Step 3
Now cover both the sides of the leaf with the solution spray completely. Make sure that you keep mixing the solution frequently as you spray.

Neem laves are too sour but the benefits are awesome. Bugs and insects just hate its odor and keep away from neem leaves.
