A: Neem extracts act on various insects in the following ways-
- Disrupts the development of eggs, larvae, or pupae;
- Blocks the molting of larvae or nymphs
- Disrupts mating and sexual communication
- Repels larvae and adults
- Stops females from laying eggs
- Sterilizes adults
- Stops feeding
- Blocks the ability to "swallow"
- Sends metamorphosis awry at various stages
Q - So, what does this all mean anyway?
A - It means getting hit with a direct spray is lights out - flies curl up and drop like the Wicked Witch of The West when Dorothy threw water on her. Flying through the mist means a seriously messed up mind for any bloodsucker that dares to light on your horse.
Biting insects become a neurological disaster. If an insect comes in contact with even a microdroplet, they can no longer feed, breed or come to maturity. Over time the population in your barn will vastly diminish.
Neem and all the other oils combined are also great for the skin. Equiderma Neem Horse Spray is a powerhouse on multiple levels. Each essential oil has its own particular benefit as a repellent and regular use will also reduce the chance of any skin issues getting a foothold. The best part is you can use it on yourself too and it smells lovely. Great for summer evenings when you want to enjoy being outside - it's a staple on our front porch.
