The "most natural pesticide" is not a true statement at all. Richard is saying neem oil is not a pesticde because it does not directly kill the pests like a poison, but a thorough spraying can kill pest by suffication. If you have a significant problem, it won't get the job done however. Neem oil is in a lot of pesticides because it is a surfactant, a substance that reduces the surface tension of water (or your pesticides spray) and allows it to spread evenly over the surface area. It also allows the spray to coat plant waxes or a pests hydrophobic exoskeleton which don't want to mix with water.

I sprayed again on Thursday night. Hopefully that will take care of them, too expensive and cold to do it again this year. I was contemplating trying some predatory mites to try to control and maybe even erradicate any mites that always seem to spring up from the dead. Im not sure however if I can maintain a favourable environment for them. Has anyone had any successes or failures with these? Any thoughts?
