Neem oil spray is very useful for your home. You can use it on your plants to prevent them from getting sick or even kill pests such as ants, termites, fleas and spider moths. There are many uses of neem oil spray on plants including:
1) Preventing insects from eating your plant(s).
2) Killing pest(s), especially spiders and aphids.
3) Protecting against mildew.
4) Preventing plant diseases such as powdery mildew.
Insects like mosquitoes, ants, wasps and silverfish can’t survive without food and water so they will attack any living thing that feeds upon them. They also have no fear of sunlight since they don’t need to protect themselves from it because their bodies produce heat through the chemical process called photosynthesis. Insects are also attracted to light, which means if you put neem oil spray on your plants, they won’t get attacked by insects.
If you want to keep your plants healthy and protected from pests, then use neem oil spray on them regularly. If you’re worried about the smell of neem oil spray, just make sure that there’s enough around your plants when spraying it.
