This unique insect repellent controls over 30 common insect pests! The Safer Brand BioNEEM insecticide and repellent concentrate works as a powerful insect killer and as a repellent. This product is formulated with azadirachtin, a natural Insect Growth Regulator extracted from the Neem seed. As an IGR, the neem oil in BioNEEM disrupts insects delicate hormonal balance, killing them before they molt into their next life stage. Use a neem oil solution such as BioNEEM on trees, shrubs, ornamentals and flowers. Water to concentrate ratios vary per the type of plant being treated. Safer Brand BioNEEM works very effectively by suffocating the insect. Remember, when using Neem oil products, there is greater risk of phototoxicity (burning). Avoid using sulfur based fungicides within the active period (5-7 days) of the BioNEEM application. These two products combined, greatly increase the risk of plant burn. While Safer Brand BioNEEM is a contact killer, several applications of the neem oil may be needed for full control. As a general rule, much like watering, do not use neem oil in the peak of the day or when temperatures exceed 90 degrees F to avoid wilting or browning of the leaves. Unlike traditional synthetic chemicals, this product is safe to use around children and pets. It breaks down into it's natural elements within 7-10 days, leaving no residual impact on the environment. Safer Brand BioNEEM Neem oil insect killer is highly preferable to chemical pesticides, with toxins that can kill beneficial insects and cause long-term detrimental affects on the environment. Another negative effect of the chemical pesticides is the fact that insects can possibly build up a resistance to the chemicals in the pesticides. Directions for Use: Shake well before using. Use spray solutions within 8 hours of mixing for maximum effectiveness. Do not store diluted spray solution for later use. Not for use in food handling areas. Since BioNEEM interferes with insect growth function, it is most effective when applied 2-3 times at 7-10 day intervals. Application directly onto the target pest will increase efficacy. Time applications for early to mid morning or in the late afternoon. Note: Do not add other chemicals to BioNEEM solutions. Do not apply to wilted, stressed, or newly transplanted materials prior to root development.
