neem oil and bees
To control the leaf and flower eaters, I want to spray the phlox, and lantana with neem oil. Some of you may remember I created my own mix of neem oil, an hot sauce, which worked, but once I put on too much undiluted hot sauce, and killed much of one phlox plant. My life is too busy to create my own. So I bought neem oil. However the label says it is bad for bees, and not to put it on while bees are active. So when do I spray it on? How long does it take to be unharmful to bees?
I did get my Acer Palmatum ozikazuki which seems beautiful so far after 5 days in the ground, and my strawberry tree is doing so much better than last year, since I have not watered it, and the canopy is getting taller, to compete with the oaks near by.
