In Summary

Out of the nine products we shared with you today, our top three are the following:

Wondercide’s Flea and Tick Spray Concentrate is one of our favorites as it specifically targets pests that attack your plants, but also doubles as protection from the pests that attack you! Fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes are also targeted, but the range of other critters it kills is long-listed as well. You will also fill the space with the pleasant scent of cedarwood by using this product, just as a little extra benefit.

Natria’s Neem Oil Spray is also a great product, as it targets not only insects, but doubles as a very efficient fungicide for black spot, rust, mildew, and other single-celled organisms that may ravage your garden. Neem oil is also a product that, when not mixed with insecticide chemicals, is great for skin and hair as well. That said, please DO NOT spray this on or inside your body! Keep it on the plants, please.

Garden Safe’s Multi-Purpose Insect Killer Is definitely one of our favorites, simply because it follows the traditional spray bottle method we all are accustomed to. Its botanical ingredients are great for maintaining your plant’s health and can be used both indoor and outdoor safely and effectively.

Although each of these products is a champion in its own way, there are always going to be some that are better than others. When it comes to organically treating your plants and crops with no extra frills, our favorite product from this list has to be the Organocide from Organic Laboratories. It hits with a triple punch as an insecticide, fungicide, and miticide, but is extremely focused on keeping your plants, soil, and bees safe from harm.
