News and Tips


We use the following method for preventing leaf eating pest:-

- Mix 3ml of NEEM OIL and  3ml of ECO-OIL per 1 litre of water.

- Spray this mixture as required over the foliage of the plant, shrub,
tree. etc.

- In Summer this treatment may be required every 2 weeks.

- We use this treatment in preference to using natural insecticides
such as Pyrethrum, as the Neem Oil / Eco-Oil mixture does not prevent   
pollination of the flowers, and so in the case of fruit trees, you still
get your fruit.

- Regarding fruit trees it is recommended that fruit not be eaten within two
days of spraying.

- Both Neem Oil and Eco-Oil are available at Jimboomba Home Hardware.
