Neem oil extract made from organic ingredients repels harmful insects due to its strong bitter flavour and strong smell and it is fully safe for pet-friendly. Neem oil can be sprayed into the plants after being combined with a few drops of liquid soap and warm water in an amount of 10 to 15 ml. According to Greeshma Reddy, a plant doctor with Bengaluru-based organic farm "My Dream Garden," the effect is known to last for more than a week.

A Hyderabad-based microbiologist who has been nurturing a green haven on her terrace, she is a also very vocal supporter of utilizing neem and its products to fight off pests. She has been cultivating a green haven on her terrace.

She advised, "keeping an eye out and identifying the kind of pests that attack your plants." To get rid of the pests, I usually choose to remove the affected plant components like the leaf or stem. However, it is advisable to remove a plant if the attack continues and you believe there is no chance for it. To prevent pests, I also apply neem oil every ten days.
