    I have sprayed it on my Dends, Oncidiums, Catts and scomborgs with no noticeable ill affects. I only used it to control ants so can't speak for scale.

    I have some of my orchids hanging in my neem tree, and so far nothing has attacked them, unlike the others on the plum tree, patio and inside the house. I'm going to be making my own neem spray... as soon as I figure out the method.

    Anna, did you get any replies on the use of Neem to treat scale on orchids. I have the same problem as you, so this might "BUMP" this for you.

    With your own private Neem tree, why bother to make the oil ?
    It sounds like keeping a dog and then barking yourself !
