Absolute Neem Oil is an eco-friendly natural insecticide and fungicide. Our unique patented extraction process which excludes the use of heat, chemicals or oil shearing ensures that all the actives are preserved at their greatest strength. It is used for the safe protection of crops from various pests. It easily biodegrades, leaves no residue and has no withholding period. Pests are driven to feed, mate, lay eggs because of their hormones called ecdysteroids. The major active ingredient in Absolute Neem Oil (azadarachtin) along with over 200 minor actives mimic the ecdysteroids of pests effectively confusing them. Once pests ingest Absolute Neem Oil through chewing or sucking on produce or leaves, they immediately stop feeding. The hormonal balance in the pests are also affected & as such they will not lay eggs or mate. As an added benefit, the metamorphosis process is interrupted & the pest cannot change into their next life form.
These modes of action amongst many others wipe out the complete cycle of the pests. The whole constitution and immunity of the pest is affected and therefore no pests can build up a resistance to Absolute Neem Oil. It is systemic and a translaminar.
The ecdysteroids in beneficial insects are different to those of pests. Honey bees & other beneficials including earthworms continue to thrive when Absolute Neem Oil is used on produce. There is NO withholding period on Absolute Neem Oil. You can spray & eat. Absolute Neem Oil is highly effective for the control of pests on field crops as well as ornamentals.
