Research has shown that neem extracts have an effect on nearly 200 species of insects. It is significant that some of these pests are resistant to pesticides, or are inherently difficult to control with conventional pesticides
It is only in the past decade, that the pest control potential of neem, which does not kill pests but affects their behaviour and physiology, has been recognized. Neem's effects such as repellence, feeding and oviposition deterrence, growth inhibition, mating disruption, chemo-sterilization etc. are now considered far more desirable than a quick knock-down in integrated pest management programs as they reduce the risk of exposing pests natural enemies to poisoned food or starvation.
In spite of high selectivity, neem derivatives affect ca. 400 to 500 species of insects belonging to Blattodea, Caelifera, Coleoptera, Dermaptera, Diptera, Ensifera, Hetroptera, Homoptera, Hymenoptera, Isoptera, Lepidoptera, Phasmida, Phthiraptera, Siphonoptera, and Thysanoptera, on species of ostracod, several species of mites and nematodes, and even noxious snails and fungi, including aflatoxin-producing Aspergillus flavus. Results of field trials in some major food crops in tropical countries will illustrate the value of neem-based pest management

Date Palm Anti-Weevil Injection
Injecting Neem Oil - EC using Azadrachtin technical of 10000ppm and above (40-160 ml) to the Trunk of the Date Palm Tree, disrupts the growth of Larvae of Red Weevil. The administered injection remains very effective up to a period of 6 months and controls red palm weevils' up to a period of 1 year.
Anti Weevil Protection through Neem Oil Spray
Recent survey reveal Neem Oil spray for Date Palms will prevent the adult weevils entering the trunk of Date Palms for laying eggs. The contents of Neem Oil extract create a state of suffocation for female weevil where it becomes unbearable for them to breed in the Date Palms for a period of 30 to 45 days.
