Straight from the big bad gubmints mouf:
Seems like proof to me
This also seems like a powerful tool in the correct hands.
Systemic neem in the foliage should be looked at as a booster to make an actual spray work better.
I suspect 1 strong dose of systemic neem + 1 strong spray of Avid 5 days later will decimate mites 99.9%. Havent tried it since standard mite are passe to me since they are easily found. I am having difficulty with the *unseen* monsters
Don't use imida...unless you like super mite. Google it. Learn the lesson: one spray may kill one bug and enhance another
Just do me a favor. Do not profit off this, do not buy less from professional growers as a consequence of this, and do not give freebies away that results in less buying from the recipients.
Why should deserving folk share their insights with people who's only interest is to ruin their ability to make a profit?
Your neem seed meal maybe the byproduct of neem pesticide manufacturing.
