Organic pest control: Neem Oil for the vegetable Garden | Homestead Kids. Neem oil is a natural oil that has been used for thousands of years. It is a good way to naturally control harmful garden insect pests. Many pests in the garden respond to Neem oil spray. The way neem works is by inhibiting their ability to reproduce. The oil also suffocates the bugs. Neem oil isn’t an end all organic control for garden pests, but can really help the gardener who is using a natural, organic IPM (Integrated Pest Management). An Integrated Pest Management system is really essential for gardening naturally. There is no one single product that will control all garden pests. We find that a combination of Neem oil (which is harmless to honeybees ) and BT ( Bacillus Thuringiensis ) combined with hand picking bugs and allowing the chickens to free range in the garden in a limited basis is a very effective pest control system.
