But, also try spraying no more than once a week, some neem oil on the foliage as well.
You can buy neem oil at just about any nursery either as a soap or some other applicative manner. Even if the instructions on the bottle say to use more often, do not use this product more than once (twice at absolute most) a week because it can have negative effects on Bees and Bee populations in North America are seriously under stress right now.
Read the thread on Neem Oil in the "What Doesn't Fit Elsewhere" Forum at the bottom of the page.
Ok,,I will buy some neem oil and spray it.
I have already sprayed the milk.Maybe a stupid question but do I have to use whole milk?How often do I spray the milk?
Do I do it after or before the neem oil?
I also have Melon,sweet pepper,cilantro,basil,,Do I spray them as a preventive matter?
In advance I would like to thank you for your help,,I am SO new at this and I REALLY want to succeed with my garden,,..
