Neem is known for its pesticidal and insecticidal properties and Neem oil has a dual purpose in the vegetable garden as both a pesticide and a fungicide. It works on arthropod pests that often eat your plants such as white-flies and spider mites, In addition, Neem oil also controls common fungi that grow on plants such as Mildews.
Insects do not become immune to neem oil pesticides, as they can to other types of pesticides. This means that neem oil remains effective, even after repeated applications.
Because neem oil is biodegradable and non-toxic, it will not pollute groundwater or cause toxic runoff into streams and nearby bodies of water. You can use it with total peace of mind.
Many pesticides can’t be used during certain stages of your plant growth. However, neem oil can be used throughout the entire growing process up to a week before harvest.
Since neem oil only targets bugs who chew on leaves, neem oil insecticides are safe to use around butterflies, ladybugs, and most other beneficial insects.
