This is the area where most research has been done. Neem oil contains a variety of tetranortirterpenoids of the "azadirone", "vilasinin" and "salannin" groups, as well as a variety of other triterpenoids, all of which have an antifeedant effect. Some of these substances, after entering the insect through ingestion, interfere with the animal's metabolism. Normal growth is retarded or reproductive ability is disturbed. Likewise, developmental disorders occur in the insects' offspring, manifesting in a dysfunction of the hormonal balance that regulates molting or metamorphosis, resulting in larval lethality or deformations of the insects' locomotor and flight apparatus (Saxena, 1995). In total, neem oil contains about 50 active ingredients. The use of neem oil as a natural insecticide is superior to chemical insecticides, which usually contain only one active ingredient, because of the large number of active ingredients. It has been observed that insect pests do not develop resistance to neem oil. Thus, the use of neem oil is recommended even over a longer period of time.
Neem oil has the following advantages: pests do not develop resistance. Beneficial insects and worms are not affected. No harmful residues remain on the plants.
