IPM: Tips for preparing your spray solution

November 16, 2014 10 Comments

So you've probably seen our recipe for the weekly IPM spray.

1 Gallon warm water
1 tablespoon Neem Oil
5ml Agsil16H Liquid Solution
1/2 Ounce Essential Oil Blend (optional)

But how do you make sure it all comes together and mixes properly?

This video has a few tricks that should really help.

Thought that the ratio for the essential oils was six drops per gal of water?

Hi Jeremy ,
I usually mix my neem and the essential oil withDr. Bronner’s SAL SUDS , mix it well and keep it for few weeks and use it every week mixing the solution which is like a cream with water each time I need to spray. Is that ok? Does it reduce the potency keeping it this way?

Thank You.

Hi,

Is there a reason you don’t use pre-mixed aloe juice instead of the straight powder? I make about a weeks worth of aloe juice I keep in a shaker bottle, then use this in my sprays.

Hi Jeremy
Just wanted to know if you had any links you could share
Looking for a expert / sales assis in the hand pump sprayers market

The Chapin you use is way to big for my garden use & trying
to tell a sales person you want a sprayer for spraying compost teas
The general answer is " you should speak with the manufacturer
of the compost teas product " Ahhhhhh !

So if you know anyone who would understand the conversation
& help me find another sprayer option in a smaller version
that would be much appreciated

Regards
Martin
