mealy bug on house plants is common but can be controlled saftely, naturally with neem oil

Neem Oil a Safe, Natural Option!

Neem oil comes from the pressed seed of the Azadiracta indica Juss tree… let’s call it the neem tree for short. It’s used as an: antispectic, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, antiulcer, antifungal and been used for medicinal purposes and pest control for thousands of years.

Is It Safe?

Neem products are consumed by humans and used in medication. If fact, there are no EPA restrictions in place for neem oil.

Growers using neem oil in their “pest control” program like the safety and the control this natural solution provides. Nurseries are finding neem oil is effective as a insecticide, miticide and fungicide. Schultz now has 3-1 Garden Safe product made from the oil… I picked up a bottle at Home Depot. Insects prefer to die… than feed on plants treated with neem.

It has shown success in fighting plant fungus and also root rot. When I spray plant I completely spray the plant and potting media.

Neem looks like a SAFE, NATURAL solution for homeowners with any type of houseplant pest problems. Give it a try!
