Neem Oil is effective as a preventive fungicide. Its chief virtue is an active ingredient called azadirachtin, which halts the life cycle of pests, so they eventually die ( although it may take a number of days for this to happen ) Neem oil also suppresses insects appetites, so they stop feeding on plants. Effective on aphids, cutworms, fungus gnats, leaf miners, and thrips, it appears to have no effect on beneficial insects, such as ladybugs and spiders. It is best to buy Neem oil and mix it yourself with an emulsifying agent like a mild dish soap.
1 teaspoon (5ml) of neem oil. ⅓ tsp (1-2ml) of mild liquid soap, insecticidal soap or another mild detergent. Mix water and soap in a closed bottle and shake well so the soap is fully dissolved. Spray on plants as needed.
