We are almost at that stage, where I'd like to start, in a week or so, to put in the mix the first 5lb. per acre surround, so my question is, did anybody try to mix surround and neem? Are they compatible?

It will eliminate the chalky benefit of the surround, as all oils do, but can work as a base coat. Remember that clay particles need to slough off in order to annoy those bitty critters.

Agree with Todd, works fine, we find ourselves doing this sometimes early in the season with a lighter oil as base coat. It doesn't seem like we see a noticable increase in PC's either, we use Surround mostly to discourage them and a few other pests.
