Great thread Neo...i can definitely see the benefits of IPM...

love using neem oil but will look at expanding the various organic compounds to help maintain a balanced organic growing system...as you know i have RA in my ROLS and will work on your suggestions to develop an environment that keeps the RA at bay...

been looking at sourcing neem and crab meal for my system but can't find any suppliers downunder at all.

I want to add that if people want to incorporate beneficial bugs like ladybugs or praying mantises into their IPM consider where you're buying before you do. Most mantis and ladybug sales online are taken from the wild. It's unsustainable and chances are they will a) die in the light indoors or b) fly away the minute you open the box outdoors. Better to plant other things outdoors that will attract beneficial bugs than to buy them online.

Are you still trying to source? I will look through my notes and provide some info on obtaining those items. Good luck on the RA fight!!

Absolutely!! I wanted to add a section on beneficial insects (they are also apart of a effective IPM strategy) but I thought that might have been too much info. I may make a separate 101 for that in the future.

Clove (eugenol) oil "has also been found to possess antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, antitumor, antioxidant and insecticidal properties"

https://www.marinwater.org/documents/...l_1_1_2010.pdf

Also note that it is an herbicide in high concentration.


Garlic. It is a potent larvacidal as well as good for black spot, powdery mildew, and downey mildew according to research. A couple more pdfs on that subject. I found the "coconut_report" a difficult read but the topsection (included below) is powerful knowledge. Also I liked the azadirachtin comparison in their study. I make the guess that the "GB+" referenced in the studies are for their specific "GarlicBarrier" product. I have never used it and know nothing more than their site will tell you about it.
https://www.garlicbarrier.com/documen...pesticides.pdf
https://www.garlicbarrier.com/documen...nut_Report.pdf

"Intact garlic cloves contains about 0.2-0.3% allilin, most of which is converted toallicin when garlic is crushed. When garlic is homogenized in water, the major chemical component is allicin. A methanol or ethanol extract of crushed cloves or powder removes all the allicin. If the solvent is evaporated and solute emulsified in water, the result can be a more potent insecticide, fungicide and bactericide than obtained with water only. The insecticidal and fungicidal properties are partly due to enzyme inhibition. Isolation and characterization of larvicidal principle of garlic, A. sativum have been identified as Diallyl di-sulphide and Diallyl tri-sulphide (Narayanan, 1954). Both natural and synthetic samples of these compounds are fatal at 5 parts per million"

Having trouble posting up a pic. Google 'insect hotels'. I learned about them in my county extension gardening class. Hopefully I'll get around to building one in the next week or two.

Hands down the H miles mite is a beast... Been scoping them in my soil.. Caught them eating something. Some worm like insect. And the great thing is I assume they came naturally...

The neem/si/aloe may also help repel ants. I sprayed some ornamentals that ants have been steadily visiting and within the hour not a single ant. Will update to see if this was a anomaly or a result of the spray.

I'd recommend the ginger-garlic extract over at https://gilcarandang.com. I spray soil surface and foliar feed fermented basil which the critters hate.
