Think your Equiderma Neem & Aloe Horse Spray only does a great job protecting you and your horse? Not so...
Did you know that every time you use it in and around your barn, every fly, gnat or mosquito that comes in contact will eventually die? This causes insect populations to plummet and the insects will eventually disappear because you've broken the breeding cycle.
-From The National Academy of Sciences -
Neem enters the system and blocks the real hormones from working properly. Insects "forget" to eat, to mate, or they stop laying eggs. Some forget that they can fly. If eggs are produced they don't hatch, or the larvae don't moult. Obviously, insects that are too confused to eat or breed will not survive.
* Neem oil does not hurt beneficial insects. Only chewing and sucking insects are affected.
