Eco-Neem Concentrate – Botanical Insecticide
Eco-Neem Concentrate is a proven effective control of two-spotted (red spider) mite, aphids, curl grubs, lawn armyworm, caterpillars, citrus leafminer, mealybugs, sooty mould 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 10ml 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 ornamental plants. Made from a renewable resource so has a low ‘carbon footprint’. Please be aware, that the Eco-Neem Concentrate cannot be used on plants that are edible or on plants that are used to grow fruits and veggies. Need something for edible plants? Try Eco-Oil!
