Last night I sprayed our sweet apple tree with neem oil and then it rained a lot today.Do I need to spray it again?How would I know if it all got washed off?<br><br>
Thanks for any help!

I don't think I would worry about the rain. When I use neem oil I mix it with hot water and shake in order to get the oil mixed with the water to spray. So I don't think a spring rain will wash it off of the tree, the water won't break up the oil because it's cold. But also, when I use neem oil I have to reapply it every week or so in order to keep the bugs at bay. Hope this helps.

Thank you!It does help.I sprayed the tree to help fight mildew.But was also going to use the neem oil elsewhere in the garden so good to know how often to use it.
