    What works best? Mixing DE in soil or mixing neem seed meal in soil if you have to pick one what would it be and why

    If you have an infestation, neither would probably do it. If it's a preventative measure the Neem seed meal is safe and offers some all around benefits. DE will probably need to be reapplied frequently.

    It really depends on your situation, but there's no reason they can't work together. Just go easy on the meal.

    DE dust is not a good thing to breath in. Wear a respirator when mixing it in.
