Mark this is a good question and to hear what others have to say. It is a first for me to read this to treat seeds with Neem oil.

We are using Neem as a Repellant , Anti feedant , fungicide etc.
We have also been using Tea Tree oil /Water mix on the seeds and no fungus gnats this year .
We have sourced and are awaiting delivery of 400 litres Fresh cold pressed Neem oil from India ... should be delivered any day now .
We will be selling Neem with the Emulsifier added ... contact us if you are interested .
Does Neem work .... Yes absolutely ...It has been proven and adopted for " Organic " Agriculture and is popular world wide .

Regards,
           Lionel.

Hi Lionel do you think that Neem Oil as a spray would help shoo off marauding Possums.  In over 20yrs of living where we do I have never had any problems with them but they appear to have gone beserk and have stripped every leaf and twig from the shrubs and small trees in my wilderness that passes for a garden.  Think that what used to be a very large Pink Bauhinia, is doomed, they have eaten it back to the butt so many times.  So far they have left the Clivia alone ( not sure if it was them or Marsupial Rats that chewed on a few berries) but if they start on those then they are toast.

Here in Texas we have similar problems with raccoons and squirrels, and of course deer. One thing that sometimes works is cayenne flakes on the ground around the plants. Smaller animals especially get chile on their feet and lick them, which just makes everything worse, heh heh. Capsaicin is the active ingredient that makes chiles hot, and mammals other than people do not like it at all. There are commercial products called "pepper spray" that you can buy, or you can find recipes online to make your own. I must add that I've been somewhat wary of introducing chile plant viruses in my garden, but sometimes you just want something that works. Here's an article about all this for your consideration: http://homeguides.sfgate.com/organic-pepper-spray-garden-pests-78404.html.

Mary
I read that possums don't like Charlies Carp and it's a great fertilizer.
