Nature’s Pesticide Secret-Neem Oil

Nature’s Pesticide Secret-Neem Oil

Neem oil is produced by cold pressing the fruit and seeds of the neem oil tree (Azadirachta indica).  It has a green-brown or dark brown color that has a pungent garlic like aroma. Neem oil’s main component is Azadirachtin, which gives the oil its antiseptic, antifungal, antipyretic and antihistamine properties.

This oil can also help reduce the number of pests in your life, naturally. Azadirachtin is the chemical produced from neem oil, which naturally repels insects. Amazingly, this chemical interferes with certain insects’ body systems, inhibiting their ability to eat and reproduce.

Neem can also be safely used to prevent insects in your garden. Neem is a great holistic alternative to dangerous pesticides such as roundup. As previously mentioned, Neem impacts the insect’s body systems, so it is not an instant bug killer. It is safe to use around plants and will not kill them, it will however, slowly decrease the number of pests in your garden.

For example, when exposed to Neem, roundworms also known as nematodes lose their ability to breed. Neem oil has been used for centuries as a natural pesticide and is a main component in hundreds of bug repelling products. It is safe to use in and around your home to prevent insect infestations.

Neem can also naturally protect outdoor animals such as horses from biting flies and mosquitos. Cats, dogs and hamsters can find relief from flea and mite bites as well.  A diluted neem oil solution can be used as a natural soap or shampoo for pets to keep fleas, ticks, and mites away from your furry friends. It is safe for both indoor and outdoor pets.
