What pest or disease product best on apple tree that is safe for bees in a varied yard/garden?
Janis S on Sep 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: According to the research that I've done on my bee sites, Neem Oil will not hurt bees. In order to hurt an insect, the insect needs to ingest the plant. So it effectively kills the bad bugs, and doesn't hurt the pollinators. I spray after sundown when the bees are back in their hive for extra assurance.
I live in eastern ct and have a big caterpillar infestation this year, they are eating the leaves of my young apple trees (planted last fall) I bought Neem oil, will it work on caterpillars?
Dianne on May 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Neem Oil's label says it controls eggs, larvae, and adult insects, including: aphids, spider mites, scale, whiteflies, beetles, leafrollers, and other insect pests. While Neem Oil may work, there are more specific caterpillar controls, like Insecticidal Soap and BT.
Why does it state do not use on Anjou Pear Trees?
Teresa F on Apr 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Certain varieties of pear (Anjou included) display a sensitivity to neem oil, and spraying will cause the leaf edges to turn black (if not the entire leaf). It's almost like an allergic reaction.
What can I use on the trunk of my lilac trees, there???s a gray fungus on the bark?
Leo D on May 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Neem oil is an insecticide; this is a fungus problem. Does the plant get morning sun? If not, that is the cause. Lilacs need to "dry off" in the morning or they will develop gray mold on the bark. Prune the flowers off immediately after blooming and create an open center with proper pruning. Please make sure all dead leaves are removed from underneath the shrub; they harbor mold and moisture and reduce air circulation. Lilacs need airflow more than most any other flowering shrub.
Will this spray harm the bees?
Peter on May 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I've been using the Bonide Neem Oil for a while now and haven't seen any decline in the number of bees around my trees. In fact, there are a lot of bees right now and I just used the product a couple days ago.
Can neem oil be combined with all season oil (and would there be any benefit in doing so) when used as a dormant season spray?
skiwithjohn on Oct 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Neem oil breaks down in sunlight, so I wouldn't use it for that purpose. As for combining it, I'm not knowledgeable enough to answer that. I have used it as a soil drench, & the systemic effects last apprx 2 weeks.

Perhaps you could find info on a Google search of scholarly articles.

I hope this helps.
I just planted a dward Jon-A-Red last fall, so I'm not expecting fruit for a few years. I've fertilized and will spray with dorm oil. Is there any reason to spray with Neem Oil until the tree gets blossoms (meaning it's going to bear fruit that year)? Marie-OH
Marie S on May 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: In the area where I grow my trees and because there are also roses growing in the same area near the trees we have a severe problem with aphids crippling the leaves and severely weakening the trees in the early spring. Since using Neem oil there have been almost no predatorial insects devowering or crippling my trees.

should i spray neem oil on a cleveland pear before flowering or after blooms fall off?
peggy g on Mar 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The label will likely advise you not to spray while anything is in bloom. Since Neem Oil is a pesticide, and bees and other beneficials may visit the Cleveland ornamental pear tree while it's blooming, it's better to spray before bloom and/or after bloom ??? not during. It won't know the difference between a "good bug" and a "bad bug".
When is it best to spray neem?
jeff H on Mar 5, 2016

Can this be used on dogs?
Gilda O on Feb 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Per the label: "For use on roses, flowers, houseplants, ornamental trees and shrubs, fruits, nuts and vegetables, home lawns. May also be used as a dormant spray to control overwintering eggs of various insects on fruit and shade trees, shrubs, roses, and other ornamentals and vegetables." The label doesn't have directions for applications on dogs. It does, however, say to avoid contact with skin. Best to stick with products specifically intended and designed for use on pets and animals.

what fruit tree sprays can be used that is safe year round?
TONY L on Jun 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Neem is something I feel comfortable using--but note that it breaks down in sunlight. And it needs to be reapplied after a rain. I use it as a "soil drench", watering the tree with it so the neem goes systematic. As a soil drench, there's no worry about pollinators being bothered.
