Things to know before using insecticides
Do your homework and make wise choices. All insecticides should be used only when necessary and plant based compounds are safer for people, pets and the environment than chemical ones.
Neem oil spray
Look for cold-pressed Neem oil at a pharmacy that carries herbal remedies as it can be used to control head lice and has a high level of active ingredients.
1 quart (1 liter) warm water
1 ½ t (8 ml) Neem oil
1 t (5 ml) liquid fragrance free castile soap
Gently mix all ingredients to get a milky looking solution and use in a spray bottle. May remain active for 7+ days.
