NEEM OIL is a standard and common treatment for a number of gardens pests. Keeping it on hand is kind of like keeping Extra Strength Tylenol in your bathroom medicine cabinet. Meaning….. you will  use it very frequently. If you are a gardener you probably already have it on hand. It’s an effective “three in one” treatment. Combined it’s an Herbicide, Insecticide and Multicide treatment for various fungal diseases in the plant world. Rose bushes especially,  benefit from its use. If you see tiny holes in your Roses leaves, start your Neem Oil treatment right away. And treat it ever three weeks until you see the condition subside  two treatments should do the trick.

No doubt you’ve heard the term “black spot.” Using Neem Oil to cover the base, stems and leaves of an infected plant can revive it from pests such as aphids, and powdery mildew. If you are unsure, take a sampling leaf or stem to your local nursery or search common garden pests on the internet. Very often there are photos of the various pest conditions. You can hardly go wrong with Neem Oil. We highly recommend you keep it on hand. It comes in a convenient spray container and can be effective for the spring, summer, and fall growing seasons. Be sure and turn the spray dial to off once you are done with your treatment,  because it can evaporate from the container. Once the first frost arrives, of course the chill will kill any insect invasion, but Neem Oil should be used even in the fall to help protect your plant for next years healthy growing season.
