No Neem

I went to both Home Depot and Lowe's last night in a fruitless search
for Neem spray. Nothing. They didn't even have insecticidal soap. All I
could find was Sevin and a couple other -cides I am not familiar with.
The Sevin came in ready-to-use quart bottles, I would have needed about
15 of them so I didn't even read the label. The one that did come in a
concentrate had a seven-day wait before harvesting anything, and the
other product was a systemic you poured on the soil. For vegetables? I
am not an organic purist, but that made me uncomfortable. 
There wasn't even a space on the shelves for anything else, I am
wondering if California's regulations changed enough that there are
things we can't get anymore. I know I have bought everything I was
looking for at Home Depot before. 
I did unearth a bottle of Neem out of my garage cupboard, it's at least
a year old but I mixed up what was there. Guess I will try a real
nursery later.
