Yes folks, it's me AGAIN with yet another questions. I think this is the last one for awhile tho:)
I bought a bottle of Neem. Bon-Neem Insecticidal Soap Concentrate from Bonide to be exact. This morning I read the little flappy thing on the back.
They have this stuff sounding about as dangerous as nuclear waste!!!!!!! Harmful if inhaled....well yeah, I can see that I shouldn't be putting my nose in the spray of mist but I'm to wear long sleeves shirts, long pants, shoes and socks, goggles, GLOVES that are chemical resistant????
I understand that the object of using this product is to get it on the plant and target bugs and NOT on myself. But if a little drifts on me, am I going to grow a third ear or something?
Is this stuff REALLY that toxic or is this pretty much a case of the company protecting their backsides? Even the garlic spray stuff I've used comes across as being pretty dangerous stuff and yet this is something that we eat?
Btw, my pest is the spotted cucumber beetle. Those little b@s!@*ds have eaten so many holes in my bean plants. I try to catch them but they quickly dive into holes right at the base of the plant. I had thought to use the neem but I'm having my doubts. I really don't want to use something that I have to dress up like a character in a sci-fi movie!
