Neem can also be used as a preventative. That's what we SHOULD do before the roses start blooming and attracting pollinators. Also, you should cut off the affected blooms and foliage before spraying. This way you can treat more of the plant and with no blooms, the pollinators won't be attracted to the plant at this time.
