Mint plants with neem insecticide

Post by creepycrab » Sat Jul 21, 2018 9:43 am

I grow a lot of mint plants and other herbs and use a neem oil with dr bronners baby soap insecticide on the plants. If washed off are herbs safe for hermit crab consumption? I know the plants absorb the neem oil but am not sure if that would affect the hermit crab or isopods in the tank.

I do not recommend using it. I also grow mint~ organically. I do not use any pesticides though. You can tell that by looking at my plants! (They have been chewed!) You cannot use any pesticides with crabs. Even if they are “organic”
