The Neem tree is referred to in its native India as 'the pharmacy tree' and has been used for a very wide range of uses, including medicinal and pesticidal, for centuries.
This proven effective control of two-spotted (red spider) mite, aphids, curl grubs, lawn armyworm, caterpillars, citrus leafminer and whitefly on ornamentals and fungus gnats in potting soil is made from a pure extract of neem seed, stabilised in a vegetable oil based carrier. Eco-Neem works in two ways: it stops the insect from moulting and progressing in its life cycle, thereby severely disrupting its growth and development; it also stops the insect wanting to feed, resulting in starvation. Safe to beneficial insects (which don't eat foliage) this broad spectrum, botanically based insecticide, is very effective at low rates (dilute 1 - 3 ml in a litre of water for foliar application; up to 5ml in a litre of water as a soil drench). Although registered overseas for a wider range of pest control, in Australia this product currently has approval only for use on non-food crops. Eco-neem is internationally certified as an organic input for use on food crops and non-food crops. A review is underway regarding the number of crops covered in Australia towards matching the existing overseas approvals for this product. Made from a renewable resource so has a low 'carbon footprint'.
Active constituents: 11.82g/L AZADIRACHTIN A and B present as 29.55g/L Azadirachta indica extract.
Dilute 1 - 3 ml in a litre of water for foliar application; up to 5 ml in a litre of water as a soil drench.

Neem Plant Spray
Regular use of Neem conditions soil, enhances liquid fertiliser applications and provides trace elements to plants. Suitable for fruit, vegetables, lawns, orchids and roses.
How it works:
Neem is bitter and has a strong odour. This repels leaf-eating insects but not bees, birds or butterflies. Soil drenching repels insects like nematodes from eating the roots of a plant, but is safe to earthworms as they eat decaying organic matter. Research indicates that Neem oil is very complex as it works slowly and will be absorbed by the plants into their structure. It is not a quick knock down spray, so if you have a heavy infestation do not expect immediate results.
