Please tell me about Neem Oil.
What exactly is it? I hear good things about its use in fighting spider mites.
Is it the same as Safer Insecticidal Soap?
I am still trying to win the war with spider mites. The buggers have already coast me a Meyer tree. My Homolemena,Parlor Palm,Ficus,and Calmondin are all under attack. I cut all the leaves off my Calamondin and placed it outside. The leaves are growing again but I fear the mites will attack again once I bring the tree in for the winter. My ficus is still showing signs of being infected. I see a few molted leaves on it. The same for the palm and homolamena. I have been washing the leaves of the ficus,homo,and palm off every few days with warm water. My ficus is far too large for me to haul back and forth to the bath tub every day or so. I need something more potent yet non toxic to humans and pets. Would Neem be a safe effective way to deal with the mites.
Also,where does one buy neem oil for houseplants. Would I find it at Lowes or Home Depo?
So sorry for all the questions.
