Safer® Brand BioNEEM® Insecticide and Repellent, 16 oz. Neem Oil Concentrate
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, it breaks down into it's natural elements within 7-10 days, leaving no residual impact on the environment.
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.
