Cedar Oil Bug Control
“NATURES DEFENDER” out-door flea & tick control is a 100% Bio-Based insect neutralizer.
It poses no harm to the environment, pets, farm animals, water ways, soil, crops, your customers or the community. “NATURES DEFENDER” technology provides a high level of arthropod and other insect knockdown while its residual subsequently acts as a repellent.
“NATURES DEFENDER” is a water soluble compound formulated using organic inerts that promote micron size VMD (droplets) beneficial for use in typical insect control methods such as compression or pressure spray delivery. The chemical free solution will not stain.
The Cedar Aroma creates a "Barrier of Entry" making treated areas off limits to non-beneficial insects in your lawns. The bio solvent influenced cedar oil will dissolve insect egg and larvae by eroding the exoskeleton and cuticle, promoting rapid dehydration. Egg-layer cycles are further interrupted by pheromone interference with the insect’s octopamine neuro receptors, and the next generation of arthropod is thereby eliminated.
