Neem Oil as a Pesticide



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.
