This plant-based product delivers powerful control in four ways: as an insecticide, fungicide, miticide and nematicide. Made with 70% Cold Pressed Neem Oil from the Neem tree, this earth-friendly product brings the well-known benefits of neem to your home and garden. When applied to your growing things, it will serve as an insecticide/miticide in several ways: as a repellent, a suffocant, an anti-feedant and ultimately as an insect growth regulator by disrupting the growth/molting process. Additionally, if an insect gets past all those barriers and manages to ingest it, the neem will poison its stomach. These processes also work to control plant-damaging nematodes, but do not affect Beneficial Nematodes.
As a fungicide this product will inhibit mycelial growth by coating the spores, which prevents further spore development. Neem Oil will not kill fungal pathogens outright, it will only inhibit further develop so it is crucial to treat the area ahead of a severe infestation.
