How often to drench/water vegetable plants with neem oil mix, for systemic control of bugs.
Anything i say, could be misrepresented, or wrong.

What are you trying to achieve? Is this about the fungus gnats? or something else?

I read, to use neem oil drench for systemic bug control in vegetable garden. But, it didn't say how often.

I use Neem spray on my pepper plants after I plant them out. It keeps the aphids at bay for a month or so. I spray again when I see aphids coming back. But I have heard people say they have to use it more often.

Do it at sundown so as not to burn your plants. Also, it doesn't kill insects immediately - you have to be patient.
