Smelly pest control

cheezdoodle12(6)September 26, 2012

Well yesterday I ran to the store looking for Neem Oil, which I hear great things about... Got to the store, no Neem. Instead, saw a bottle of some concentrated organic fungicide, pesticide, mitacide stuff.. safe for good bugs.. how bad could it be? BTW, I also forgot to bring my reading glasses to the store.

Anyhow, when I got home I mixed it up to spray on my indoor plants that I just re-potted and brought inside. I have been noticing a few gnats flying around, and want to avoid further problems since it'll be a long winter. After spraying all over the plants, in runs my cat, sniffing all around with a curious look on her face... I look closer at the ingredient list.. over 90% fish oil.. nice.

Now I have to double check if I mixed it right, or see if I can add something else to make it smell better. Does anyone have experience with Neem? Does it stink? I might still end up buying it.. not sure if I can continue to use the one I got indoors.

Neem smells nice imho. Kinda citrusy. I believe Lowe's carries it.

Sulfur dust(you can mix with water and spray) also works well for a general fungicide/miticide. You want the pest control grade, not the nutrient. Probably available at a local nursery or online.

Good Luck.

Whew! I thought you were going to tell me it was made with cat pee.

I get enough of that already.
