This EPA-approved neem oil product works to control over 200 different kinds of insect pests
without harsh chemicals. NimBioSys is an all natural extract of the neem tree and works in a
variety of ways; depending on the insect type, neem can repel them, disrupt their growth
hormones, or prevent their ability to reproduce. Natural neem oil is effective for use against aphids,
beetles, stink bugs, leafhoppers, whiteflies, mealy bugs, mites, weevils, scale and thrips. Our
100% natural neem oil insecticide product includes azadirachtin (3000ppm), a naturally occuring
compound that's extremely important for effective pest control. For all uses, mix ratio of
1:100-1:200 parts NimBioSys with water (0.5% to 1.0%). Apply at 7-14 day intervals at onset of
pests, and then as needed.

100% Cold-Pressed Neem Oil Insecticide
Over the past few years, neem oil has become one of the most highly recommended pesticides in the world because it
controls pests without harming most beneficial insects.
However, nearly all neem oil sold in the U.S. as a pesticide (until now) had actually been a “clarified” extract of neem oil.
That means the azadirachtin — generally considered to be the single most important insect-controlling compound in
neem — had been removed.
Last year, for the first time ever, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) approved full-spectrum neem oil —
including the azadirachtin — to be sold as a pesticide. In the USA. Fairfield, Iowa-based Soil Technologies Corp.(www.
americanatural.com) is the distributor for NimBioSys™ Neem Oil Biological Insecticide, the first 100% neem oil to be
sold with an EPA-approved label as an organic pesticide.
“This is a major step forward for organic gardeners and growers as well as people who are concerned about minimizing
their impact on the environment,” said Steve Nichols, V.P. of Soil Tech. “While full-spectrum neem oil has been available
for personal use as an ayurvedic treatment, it hasn’t had an EPA-approved label detailing its use as a pest control.”
Some botanical pesticides are derived from natural sources, but also contain toxic compounds that can harm people and
beneficial insects (i.e. rotenone). On the other hand, pure neem oil is a therapeutic ingredient found in products ranging
from lotions and salves to shampoos and soap.
The difference between neem and other botanical pesticides is that neem works as an insect repellent, growth regulator
and anti-feedant rather than just killing the pest outright. “You don’t get the immediate knock-down you see with toxic
pesticides but you also don’t harm beneficials,” says Nichols. “Neem doesn’t affect insects unless they’re chewing on
NimBioSys is labeled to treat a wide variety of pests including aphids, caterpillars, beetles, stink bugs, leafhoppers,
whiteflies, mealy bugs, mites, weevils, scale, leaf miners and thrips. According to the EPA, the cold-pressed neem oil “will
not cause adverse effects to humans and other non-target organisms when used according to label directions.”
Neem oil comes from the seed of the neem tree (Azadirachta indica), which has been used in tropical countries for
thousands of years. Known as the “village pharmacy” in its native India, it is one of the most widely used medicinal herbs
in the world. The EPA approval of NimBioSys follows nearly two years of extensive testing and review of data from dozens
of international studies.
Directions For Use:
Mix 1-1/2 to 2 teaspoons of NimBioSys neem oil per quart of water (1 to 1-1/2 oz. per gallon) to
make a spray mix. Add about 1/2 this amount of liquid dish soap or other surfactant to get the oil to
mix with the water. Warm water will make this process easier. Put this mixture in a pump spray
bottle or other sprayer, shaking well before each use to get the oil in suspension.
Spray the neem oil mixture on plant leaf surfaces until it runs off. Then allow the mixture to dry.
