Here are some steps on how to use neem oil:
- Prepare the neem oil solution: Pour 1 liter of water into a container and add 5 ml of neem oil. Stir well to distribute the oil evenly over the water.
- Spray the pears with the prepared solution: Use a sprayer or brush to apply the solution evenly to the leaves and fruit of the pears. Make sure to cover all parts of the plant to maximize protection effectiveness.
- Repeat the process: Repeat the process every 7-14 days, depending on the level of infection and pest load. If signs of infection or pest attack appear, you can repeat the process more often.
- Don't use too much: Neem oil is very concentrated and overuse can cause burns on pear leaves and fruit. Follow the instructions for use and use only as much as is necessary for effective protection.
