Neem seed ground
(Azadirachta indica) Neem (neem) for plants, animals and humans.
Spoil the appetite of parasites with Neem extract, so that they no longer eat your valuable plants. Since the active ingredients of Neem also affect the hormone system of the pests, they no longer reproduce. The beneficial garden insects remain well.
The neem tree originates from India and has been valued there for generations as a comprehensive health-giving agent. Wood, bark, branches, leaves and seeds have valuable, unique ingredients that are still used today in Ayurvedic medicine, especially against parasites in animals, plants and humans (ticks, lice and fleas, caterpillars, beetle larvae, grasshoppers, cicadas, aphids, mildew, snails, ants and bugs.
In the meantime, its effectiveness has been scientifically proven, as well as its non-toxicity to humans, domestic animals and beneficial insects.
Therefore, neem is classified as ecologically harmless.
Completely harmless to humans, neem active ingredients can also be used to treat head lice, itch mites, dandruff, nail fungus, and neem is also used in animal care.
You can easily mix ground neem seeds into an effective plant protection and care product by pouring 50 g (2 heaped tablespoons) of ground neem seeds over warm (not hot!) water, stirring well and then letting the mixture stand for 3-6 hours while continuing to stir frequently.
Then pour the mixture through a sieve and and then again through a discarded pantyhose (or cloth). Carefully squeeze out the remaining broth from the stocking.
If there are still solids in the solution, please filter again.
You can now pour this solution into a pump spray bottle or similar and apply it to the plants. In this way, a wide variety of aphids, thick-mouthed weevils or caterpillars, leafroller larvae and even Colorado potato beetle larvae
and spider mites can be effectively controlled.
Niem is virtually toxin-free, so it can be applied to vegetables.
Do this every 14 days until plants are mostly free of bugs.
Neem protects the beneficial
Why are beneficial insects spared? Because they don't suck on the plants directly. When the parasites bite or suck on the treated plants, they ingest the Neem active ingredients. The neem extracts spoil the parasites' appetite and therefore they do not eat anymore. In addition, neem affects the hormonal system of the pests so that they no longer reproduce.
Therein lies the difference with pesticides, which do not distinguish between beneficial and pest, insecticides kill all insects, with the known disadvantages for the environment.
You can also use ground neem seeds to protect your valuable clothing.
Sprinkle very little seed between clothes or put a little in stockings and place them between clothes, this will prevent moth damage.
Store rivet seeds as airtight as possible, cool and dark, e.g. in a sealed tin can.
