What To Do??

That is the question we get most often from our customers, so we decided to post a detailed solution here on our website! First come by Giordano’s and ask for ‘Neem Oil’, a naturally produced oil made from the seeds of Neem Trees (native to India). Neem oil contains a number of acidic organic compounds that kill off many different types of pests. Here is an excerpt from our friends over at Wikipedia:

Formulations made of neem oil also find wide usage as a biopesticide for organic farming, as it repels a wide variety of pests including spittle bugs, mealy bug, beet armyworm, aphids, the cabbage worm, thrips, whiteflies, mites, fungus gnats, beetles, moth larvae, mushroom flies, leafminers, caterpillars, locust, nematodes and the Japanese beetle. Neem oil is not known to be harmful to mammals, birds, earthworms or some beneficial insects such as butterflies, honeybees and ladybirds (ladybugs in US English) if it is not concentrated directly into their area of habitat or on their food source. It can be used as a household pesticide for ant, bedbug, cockroach, housefly, sand fly, snail, termite and mosquitoes both as repellent and larvicide.[2] Neem oil also controls black spot, powdery mildew, anthracnose and rust fungi.
