Has anyone used these products to control insects on their plants?
I watched a youtube video and they mixed these two products (2 tablespoons each per gallon of water) and sprayed the plants. Stated it was effective.

Soap and neem can be used together, but you have to be careful with the neem. It isn't a real stable and if you use it in hot weather you can kill plants with it. Only apply it in the cool of the morning and read the label to see where it is and isn't recommended. I killed some peppers with it, but eggplant doesn't seem to mind neem.

My questions would be what pests do you have and on what plants? You may be having a pest issue because your plants are in stress. If that's the case, you'll forever be spraying until you fix the problem. How diverse is your garden? You should make sure you have a diverse assortment of plants in order to draw beneficial insects to your garden and you won't have to worry about pests.
