The Neem oil (natural pest control) is yellowish/brown color, tastes bitter and smells a bit like garlic and/or sulfur. This natural substance has been used for centuries to treat diseases and control home and garden pests. It works by interrupting the reproductive cycle of insects. Once ingested, it affects the hormonal system of the insect, causing it to forget to eat and stop moulting, mating and laying eggs. This eventually sees the complete destruction of the insect population in the designated area as the older insects die off without producing offspring. Neem oil is also powerfully aromatic and gives off an odour that insects do not like, protecting plants by making them unappealing. Neem oil is an effective repellent of a wide variety of common garden bugs, including caterpillars, nematodes, locusts, aphids, Japanese beetles and mites. In the home, neem oil can be used to combat ant, cockroach, fly, termite, mosquito and bedbug infestations.
Application: Mix 5 ml of neem oil with 1 litre of water with 1 drop of any soap liquid and spray on the plants during later evening
