A natural organic insecticide that protects your plants against a wide range of insects.
Works well as a preventative spray and when your insect problem is just beginning. For heavy infestations, use BIONEEM PYROL.
When ingested by leaf-eating insects, it stops hormone production, and the insects begin to die within 3 to 7 days.
Targets leaf-eating insects and therefore won't harm bees, butterflies and other beneficial insects.
BIONEEM is environmentally friendly, which means it does not toxify the air we breath, food we eat, soil we cultivate or the water we use for irrigation.
Bioneem is used to control a wide range of insects (up to 200 insect types) including , red spider mites, aphids, white flies, leafminers, mealybug, thrips, fruit flies, leaf hopper, weevils and many more.
Anti-feedant effect : BIONEEM spray deters insects from feeding on the crop treated with it. Useful as a preventative spray.
Repellent effect : Insects are repelled by the smell of neem.
Harmless to insects that pollinate crops and trees, such as butterflies, spiders and bees. This is because neem products must be ingested to be effective. Thus, insects that feed on plant tissue succumb, while those that feed on nectar or other insects rarely contact significant concentrations of neem products.
It is structurally similar to insect hormones called ‘ecdysones’ which control the process of metamorphosis as the insects pass from larva to pupa to adult. Metamorphosis requires the careful synchrony of many hormones and other physiological changes to be successful, and azadirachtin is an ‘ecdysone blocker’. It blocks the insect’s production and release of these vital hormones. Insects then will not moult, thus breaking their life cycle.
Azadirachtin also serves as a feeding deterrent for some insects. Depending on the stage of life-cycle, insect death may not occur for several days. However, upon ingestion of minute quantities, insects become quiescent and stop feeding. Residual insecticidal activity is evident for up to seven days or longer, depending on insects and application rate.
Directions for Use
Dosage: 3-5 ml/liter water
Cover entire foliage with spray. It is very important to cover the front and underside of leaves.
Do not apply in temperatures above 30 degrees C.
Spray in the coolest part of the day to avoid phytotoxicity.
Store in a cool dry place, out of direct sunlight.
