The effectiveness of BIONEEM® is based on several modes of action. It disrupts insects’ hormonal balance so they die before they molt to the next life stage. BIONEEM suppresses some insects’ desire to feed and also repels in areas that have been sprayed. These different modes of action result in broad spectrum control of the majority of insects that harm your yard and garden. BIONEEM spares many beneficial insects such as honey bees and lady bugs that prey on undesirable insects. Without beneficial insects to control pest populations, plants are even more vulnerable to new infestations.
Directions for Use
Shake well before using. Spray solutions should be used within 8 hours of mixing from concentrate for maximum effectiveness. Do not store diluted spray solution for later use. Not for use in food handling areas.
BIONEEM 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.
Do not add other chemicals to BIONEEM® solutions. Do not apply to wilted, stressed or newly transplanted materials prior to root development. Do not apply to known sensitive plant species without prior testing. Known sensitive plants: hibiscus flowers.
