Organic Tick Control
Tick Free® Organic Tick Control™ dissolves the insect egg and larvae eliminating the next generation of arthropod while the cedar aroma creates a barrier of entry making the treated area off limits to flying or crawling pests.
Cedar oil is a natural essential oil that provides a pheromone interruption agent that impairs the insects’ mental capacity (fries their brain). When combined with ethyl lactate, a raspberry bio-solvent it becomes instrumental in triggering instant erosion and dehydration of the insect’s exo-skeleton and subsequently, the egg and larvae. For every insect you see, there are 99 more in egg and larvae stage. Exposure to a water solution spiked with cedar oil and ethyl lactate will destroy the egg and larvae stage, breaking the egg layer cycle and eliminating the next generation of insects.
Tick Free® Organic Tick control™ is instrumental in the demise of numerous non-beneficial insects including but not limited to ticks, fleas, mites, mosquitoes, scorpions, beetles, mole crickets, grubs, chinch bugs, stink bugs, spiders, chiggers and many others. It has no effect on beneficial and pollinator insects such as butterflies or bees which are sight-driven and earthworms. It will not hurt any of the amphibians or lizard family but will deter snakes from the treated areas.
The late Dr. Ben Oldag was a world-renowned organic scientist and entomologist, who retired from the Texas Department of Agriculture. His radio show, which broadcasted every Sunday in the Houston area, focused on agricultural issues and had thousands of devoted listeners who wanted alternatives to highly toxic chemicals. His number one choice of insect control was cedar oil which he stated “Would go down in history as the greatest insect control product ever brought to the world market.”
