I HAVE LAKE FRONT HOUSE, SPIDERS ARE ALWAYS A PROBLEM … THE QUESTION I HAVE IS HOW LONG DOES THE ECO EXEMPT CONCENTRATES LAST IF I SPRAY MY HOUSE ALL AROUND IN THE LATE SPRING THANKS B.H.
We’ve had people report residuals from two weeks to two months. It’s really hard to say. After being in the business for over 30 years, I’ve learned residuals can vary from house to house based on what’s going on locally, and most importantly, what’s happening on the property being treated. In the end, I think it’s mostly dependent on the local moisture levels and there really is no way to tell for sure other than to try.

For example, here at my house, the length of residual has varied by almost the exact difference cited above. When I first moved to where I now reside, I found my treatments lasted about 2 weeks. This was true for most all the pests found on my property including spiders. I live on a river with lots of lush vegetation, shade and moisture so no doubt I knew it could be tough to get products to last when I decided to move here. But being in the business (and the fact that I can get a good price on the products I sell), I was undaunted. For the first few years I found I was treating about every 10-14 days “in season”. But then we started to have a major drought a few years ago and by the second year of the drought, I noticed my treatments could go much longer and still be effective. Interestingly my lot wasn’t that much different from before. In other words, it was still lush and green and shady. I’m thinking the plants were getting their water from the river bed. But I’m pretty sure the lack of rainfall combined with the lower humidity allowed the spray I applied to last a lot longer and in the end I was able to go just about 2 months before needing to retreat.

Now will that be what you can expect to happen if you were to apply ECO IC around your house? Probably. There is no doubt the length of residual for any product is dependent on factors like the rain, sun and general air moisture. But I would be amiss not to mention the impact a complete spider treating program would provide. In other words, if you were to treat the yard with the ECO GRANULES and spray the outside with the ECO IC CONCENTRATE, no doubt you’d get much better results compared to just spraying. And for obvious reasons, if you have spiders inside the home, treating with some ECO KO AEROSOL inside would be a big help opposed to just relying on the outside spray to keep them out.

So in summary, there is no doubt a lot of factors that can all have an impact on just how long any one concentrate or treatment might last. In the end you will undoubtedly find it to vary from year to year and even from season to season. But if you stay the course and treat the property for several years, over time you’ll learn just what to expect given the current weather pattern during any one year. Personally I’ve got my lot down to a science. I’m able to gauge within a day when certain pests like mosquitoes, spiders and ants will “reappear” and it’s mostly dependent on the local moisture levels. No doubt it has fluctuated and I suspect the same would be true for you as well.

I am looking for a totally non toxic product to use in my home on a every few month basis. We live in the woods, so we see spiders, roaches, ants etc. Thank you.

We have a few options and I expect one will serve your needs adequately. Here are some suggestions.

The first would be the “strongest” option. It’s federally exempt due to the fact that it uses food grade actives and is very safe for use around people and animals. ECO IC is a concentrate that can be used inside and outside the home and will no doubt control all the pests you’re likely to encounter. It’s not a pesticide but it does act like one in that it kills target insects and supplies a lengthy residual or residue that will remain active for some time.

The second option would be the BUG PATROL RTS. This is an organic spray that can’t be used inside but instead is designed for use around the home. It’s highly effective on tough to kill bugs like roaches and ants. By spraying once a quarter (every three months), you’d knock down the local insect population and in theory effectively reduce the odds of any coming inside. This approach is actually  much more effective compared to waiting till you see them inside and then spraying where everyone lives. Getting bugs outside the home, before they get inside, is a better approach and this product is one of the best organic options when using this method.

The third option would be the HOUSE PLANT INSECT KILLER. Labeled for use inside the home, on house plants and pretty much anywhere, it’s ready to spray (comes in a can) and is very handy to have for spot treating. Use as needed or every 2 months. It won’t be the most cost effective material to use if you’re house is large but it might have a place in your overall program since it can be used as much as needed, is organic and can be applied on any vegetable plant inside or out in the yard around the home.

Lastly, you could opt for a total non pesticide approach with the pure INSECT REPELLENT. This product is to be used outside only and is mostly used as a paint or stain additive. When used in this fashion, it can repel pests for 1-2 years including all the ones you listed above. When used as a spray, results won’t be as long but you should still get 2-3 months of residual. This would be the most “green” option as it’s not a pesticide and won’t kill anything. Given the location of the home, I’m not sure this will prove effective enough for your needs but it might.

In summary, all of these options are included on this site and considered non toxic when compared to traditional pesticides. Hopefully one of these options will fulfill your requirement. Here are links to the products mentioned above:

May Eco Exempt IC be used to control clover mites and prevent them from entering a structure?

If it may, what is the recommended dilution and application rate for an active infestation?

Does EEIC provide elimination, or only suppression within the treated area?

Thanks, W.K.

If you read our article on CLOVER MITE CONTROL, you’ll learn they can be quite persistent and stubborn once they get well established. Depending on the source of your problem it’s most likely one of the ECO products will be able to effectively control and eliminate the problem. The key is getting it where it needs to be and this will largely depend on the form used. Since it’s important to treat the turf and the building siding, I don’t think the ECO IC alone will do the job.

But if you first treat the turf with the ECO GRANULES followed by extensive treatments with the ECO EXEMPT AEROSOL to all the cracks and crevices, I’m sure you’ll knock them down if you successfully treat their nests. Again, the key here is getting the product where it needs to be. The one limitation of the liquid ECO Exempt is that it won’t penetrate all the cracks and crevices where clover mites are no doubt nesting. For that the aerosol version will be better suited.

And the ECO Granules will do a better job of lasting long so in the turf surrounding the home, a good application of it will really impact and knock down the local population as it tends to linger much longer. Liquid spraying will have it’s value and definitely needs to be done to all the siding and “above turf” site where you see activity. Especially now that the clover mites like to come out in the open. But this isn’t where they’re nesting so in the end, more coverage will be needed. Combine the ECO IC with the granules and aerosol and you’ll get the results you’re wanting.

Lastly, the rate of mixing the concentrate will be 8 oz of ECO IC per gallon of water which can then be applied over 500 sq/ft. Most homes will require 10 lbs of granules to be applied monthly around the house perimeter followed by 2 gallons of spray over the top, the siding/foundation of the house and other objects like porches, fences etc. where activity is observed. All cracks and crevices on the home need to be treated with the Aerosol which will use 1/2-1 can per treatment. If done monthly you should be able to fully control the clover mite infestation in 6-12 months.

Hi,

We have a small presence of springtails in our bathroom and would like the most ‘green’ friendly product that you can recommend.

Thanks J.D.

Springtails can become quite a problem once they start entering the home. As explained in our SPRINGTAIL CONTROL ARTICLE, they seem to be a real problem up under slab homes and when they are, common entry points to the home will be under sinks and tubs. Do you have a slab home? If so, treatment in the pipe trap (the trap is the place where the pipes pass through the cement) may be needed.

Also explained in our article is the fact that springtails thrive out in the soil surrounding the home and from there migrate which leads to seeing them in the home. Since there is no chemical strong enough to stop the migration, the real key to keeping them out is taking care of them around the perimeter of the home. This can be done with the granules and liquid sprays listed in our article. If you are able to establish a zone around the home which is free and clear of springtails, the odds of any getting inside are greatly decreased.

Since you asked for green products, I have taken some time to list our alternative and organic product choices we know will work on springtails. These are products we have found to work well around the home and all are from a new line of products which are as safe and green as you can find. Use them in place of any products which appear in the article and if you’re confused at all, give us a call for more clarification but it’s pretty straight forward here. For example, instead of the Bifen Granules, use the ECO GRANULES. Made from food oil extracts, it’s so safe ECO Granules are totally exempt from needing federal registration numbers from the government.

We also have liquid concentrate replacement options. Instead of the Cyonara or Bifen concentrates listed in the article, you can use the organic spray we have listed here called BUG PATROL. It’s certified for organic gardening and we know it works well for springtails. This would be sprayed around the home with the purpose of establishing a “buffer zone” where there are no springtails between your house and the yard. When a big enough springtail free zone is established, you will no longer be seeing any in the home.

Lastly, for inside the home, use the MOTHERS EARTH DUST in place of the Deltamethrin Dust. Mothers Earth is DE Dust and very effective yet safe to use inside. If you prefer the aerosol treatment instead, go with the ECO KO EXEMPT. Again, totally exempt from EPA numbers, the ECO works well on springtails and is a very “green” solution.

I’m looking for a non toxic spray for use around my house. I’ve got a wide range of pests including spiders and raoches. Anything organic?

We have some organic sprays that work on spiders and roaches. The BUG PATROL RTS is probably your best bet and a good one for use around the home. It’s organic and can be used safely on the house and plants without a risk to people or pets. As the label states it’s approved for organic gardening so it’s got the needed seal of approval. It also comes with a ready to spray nozzle. All you need to do is fit it onto your garden hose and turn on the water; no mixing needed as the included sprayer does all the work.

I was looking for an nature friendly product to kill slugs and snails (kind of an oxymoron huh?). Most of the organic products seem to marginal at best. I want an organic product. Any help you could give me with this would be very much appreciated. Thanks.

First, we actually carry a “certified organic” slug bait. You can see it on our Non-Toxic site here:

http://www.non-toxic-pest-control.com/bait/sluggo

Second, watch out for products missing the OMRI or Organic Gardening logo’s. At this point that is a major “flag” to us. There are just too many products out there being marketed and sold making all kinds of claims with nothing to back up what they cite the product can do. Currently the government and some other groups are still far behind the list of products that need to be reviewed and evaluated but they are working on it. For us, the process is paramount and a much needed “hoop” for anything we’ll consider selling and when we see something has gone through it successfully getting certified in one category, we are then willing to consider selling it. Currently we know the bait listed above will work. We also know the DE DUST can be sprinkled out over the garden area and it will definitely kill any that enter the area or try to crawl over it. The only problem with the dust is that it won’t last long and once it gets wet you’ll need to reapply it. But it does work and can be a good way to kill off the ones you see on the spot without having to touch them!

Thanks so much for the info, I just placed my order.  (I have varied carpet beetles by the way, I’m sure).

The infestation we have is relatively mild, but a nuisance (I’ve already had to throw out 2 dress suits, 3 coats and other clothing!  So, I have everything sealed in garment bags now.).  The problem is that my wife and I live in a very small apartment with 3 cats.  As you know, most pesticides are highly toxic to cats, so we’re just using regular household cleaners like Clorox clean up spray w/bleach (and soon the pheromone traps) to regularly clean infested areas keep the beetle population in check.

I really appreciate any other advice you may have.  How long do the traps typically last before I need to change them?

Thanks very much for your help!


Our CARPET BEETLE TRAPS will generally last 2-3 months before the pheromone looses it’s scent or the glue gets too dry to hold target insects. I would say to replace them every quarter when you know you have activity; less frequently if nothing is active.
But since you mentioned you have cats, there are two products I believe will help your problem and are very pet friendly for use in apartments and homes. Both are generally used to treat flea infestations but because the area being treated with either product would be your carpet, I know both can effectively help reduce carpet beetles too. In other words, if you used either for fleas in your apartment, these dusts would control the carpet beetles that live and breed in the same area as fleas. We know this due to the biology but more importantly, over all the years of selling it and having customers use it, we’ve heard feedback over and over to substantiate the claim.
The first is a Diatomaceous Earth product that’s been refined and is very clean to use in the home. It can be applied directly to carpeting for fleas and will definitely work on the carpet beetles too even though you won’t find them listed on the specimen label. You can read more details on the MOTHERS EARTH DUST page but this is highly effective on larval stages of any insects including carpet beetles. I know it would help your problem if you got some applied to carpeting and up under furniture which may be another great nest location for this voracious insect.
The second product can be seen on our FLEA CONTROL page and is something we’ve sold for a long time. Basically it’s a product that looks like salt and is odorless. Treatments last a year and it’s so safe, it won’t even kill adult fleas. But because it nestles down to the nap of the carpet, it will effectively dehydrate and kill carpet beetle larvae, flea larvae and any other pest that tries to live in this area. You can see a write up on it here on this post:
Here are links to the other products mentioned in this post:
Hope this helps!

Hi,
We are looking for a product that is dog, cat and children friendly (preferably organic), and keep the spiders at bay. I have found eco exempt on your page and was wondering if that is what i need or if you have any other suggestions.
We have a queenslander style home with wooden boards and the property boarders onto the rain forrest.

I look forward to hearing from you.

ECO KO AEROSOL would be a great product that works well and is very safe to use. As explained in our product catalog, it uses food based ingredients so it’s essentially non-toxic to mammals. The Aerosol would be the easiest product to use since it’s ready to spray and comes in a can. But when it comes to spiders, it can sometimes take a little more effort to get good results. You don’t mention where or what kind of spider you have so without this information, I don’t know where the nest sites might be so let me make the following suggestion.

If you notice a lot of spiders around the house, particularly on the outside, you should consider some outdoor treatments. This will help keep out most any invasive insect including spiders. Two good actives which are very safe to use around people and pets would be either the ECO IC CONCENTRATE or the BUG PATROL RTS. Both work well on spiders and are what I would call pet friendly for sure.

I`m  bee keeper is it safe to use  around the bee`s? MP INSECT KILLER 24 OZ

Bees are quite sensitive to insecticides and most importantly, subject to more exposure to insecticides based on  how they behave. Any insect which is mobile and typically likes to land on plants all day long is a prime candidate for some kind of toxin exposure. Compared to other insects like Cave Crickets which live and thrive in dark caverns away from the sun, people and other extreme influences, it’s amazing bees, wasps and other social insects are able to live more than a day in our dangerous world. With this in mind, anyone that keeps or cares about bees should make an effort to decrease the liklihood of exposing them to undue levels of pesticide. And one way to do this is to use products which don’t last long after they’re applied.

The product you inquired about is in fact one such product. Certified for organic gardening, MP INSECT KILLER has a short life span. It has just 1 day to harvest which means it’s pretty much gone in a day of being applied. Having a “1 day to harvest” means in one day, crops which have been sprayed with it are suitable for human consumption. Such labeling is only extended to products which break down rapidly. By dissipating rapidly, there is less chance of a toxic exposure to non-target insects like bees since the product isn’t effectively hanging around killing everything that lands on it. The mindset here is you’re spraying a target insect you see and know about; a good effort on your part should eliminate the real targeted insect and then afterward, within a day, the product used will be gone and the plant can go back to as it was prior to being sprayed. The big plus is that the targeted insect is now gone so that in theory, the plant should benefit (assuming the targeted insect was targeted because it was doing some kind of damage). Plants treated with long lasting residuals can in fact impact hundreds if not thousands of insects during their course of life and if you keep bees, you know exactly what I’m talking about. In general, it’s best to avoid using such products unless the situation warrants such applications or the host plant is one bees, wasps and other beneficial insects avoid.

In summary, products like INSECTICIDAL SOAP and MP INSECT KILLER are two good choices if you need to spray around the home, out in the yard, on plants which bees like to frequent. Both products do an admirable job of controlling most any insect and though they won’t last more than a day, they won’t have a profound impact on non-target insects that aren’t causing any damage in the first place.

i have gnats in my apartment.i have tomato plants ,and banana plant.i have gnats allover the house.i need a spray.

Gnats in the home can be a nuisance throughout the winter months. Though cold outside, most any home has the conditions needed to enable them to prosper. Potted plants are an ideal gnat producer and when these plants yield either fruit or vegetables, there is the additional challenge of what to use safely.

If you suspect the gnats are nesting on the plants, I suggest treating them with one of the organic concentrates or aerosols listed on this site. You’ll need to treat both the plant and the soil if you’re seeing activity in this area. MULTI PURPOSE INSECT KILLER would be a good concentrate to use for the soil. It can safely be sprayed on vegetable and fruit yielding plants and won’t make the banana’s uneatable. Treat once a week adding some concentrate to the watering can. This material will work well on mealy bugs, thrips, aphids and whiteflies  which all like to nest in potted plant soil.

I also suggest getting some HOUSE PLANT KILLER AEROSOL. This product will kill gnats on contact but it’s not as strong as the concentrate. The good thing about the aerosol is that you can use it quickly, for spot treating, as needed. Keep a can on hand for emergency use in between regular treatments with the Multi Purpose Killer. Remember, gnats can manifest themselves most anywhere in the home. They love garbage incinerators, garbage pails, compost piles, pet cages and fruit or produce bowls. Be sure to keep these areas clean and treat with the House Plant Killer when activity is discovered.

Is it safe to use Baygon around and indoor orchid garden?
Thank you
S. T.

As a general rule, the use of aerosols close to plants should only be done outside in the open. This prevents direct exposure of the aerosol mist to the plant. Most all traditional aerosols contain solvents and other ingredients that can cause problems when coming in contact with plants. Outside applications can be used downwind ensuring none will coat the plant; inside the home without a breeze or wind, the chance of prolonged exposure is much higher and should be avoided.

To use one of our residuals like BAYGON in the home where you keep plants, we suggest you first remove the plants prior to the application. If you let the area settle at least one hour after treating, the plants can be reintroduced without a problem. It’s really during the treatment and the first 30-60 minutes afterwards which present the real risk. Keep the plants away during this time if you must spray inside and you should be fine.

Alternatively, you could apply one of these two organic aerosols: HOUSE PLANT INSECT KILLER or the ORGANIC FLYING INSECT KILLER. Either can be used safely inside around plants and do not pose a hazard to people or pets. Certified as organic, these two products do a good job of handling most any insect on or around plants. The only drawback is that you will have to use them more frequently since they don’t last as long as the Baygon. But other than that, we have found they work well. If you have further questions, please give us a call on our toll free at 1-800-877-7290.

I have ants out in my yard and I’m looking for a nontoxic spray or granule I can apply. I see you have several chemicals that you offer but do you have anything that’s natural or organic? I afraid to use anything too strong around my garden.

In our Ant Control article we feature several products including liquid concentrates and granules. Either of these would be safe and highly effective on most any ant. We also have an alternative option which uses natural food extracts and oils as the active. These natural products are nontoxic and yet effective. The liquid alternative is ECO IC and is basically mixed and applied like any other product. It can safely be used around any garden without cause for concern. Use a good Pump Sprayer to do the application and spray it in the yard, on the home or even the home without any danger to people or pets.

But when it comes to ants, getting the entire yard is important so the use of some kind of lawn granule is often times required for long term protection. The alternative option here would be the ECO Lawn Granules. Both options will work on ants but keep in mind they won’t last as long as the more traditional products featured in our article. In other words, you’ll probably have to apply them more frequently.

And we even have an organic ant bait. NIBAN FG is OMRI listed and safe for use inside as well as around the home and won’t pose an undue risk to people or pets when used properly. If you have further questions or concerns, please give us a call on our toll free 1-800-877-7290.

i was wondering if I could use ECO Aerosol on my house plants? M.

ECO Aerosol isn’t labeled for use on plants directly. But we do have HOUSE PLANT INSECT KILLER. It has been formulated exactly for this purpose. Safe enough to use in the home and effective on a wide range of insects including aphids, spider mites, red mites, mealybugs, thrips, scale, caterpillars, and whiteflies, it can be used as frequently as needed and does a good job.

I’ve got thousands of ladybugs on the outside of my house and want something non-toxic to spray. I see you have lots of strong chemicals but do you have anything organic that won’t be so harsh?

Ladybugs can be a tough and persistent pest once they find your house and move in for the winter. Most people think of ladybugs as a “good bug” since they like to feed on common garden variety pests like whiteflies and aphids. As our LADYBUG CONTROL article explains, there is another species of ladybug present in the Unites States which has been imported and released on purpose. Originally the intention of importing this ladybug was all well and good but it was later learned this species hibernates during the winter. That by itself was no major problem but when it turned out the place they most liked to hibernate was on our homes and other man made structures, this insect was quickly categorized as another “invasive pest”.

Once your home is marked and scented as a good place to live, ladybugs in the local vicinity will find their way to your home. This will usually happen every spring and fall. It’s during this time that treatments should be done. Cypermethrin outside and Baygon inside are two very effective products to use but there are organic alternatives. The BUG PATROL RTS is certificied for organic gardening and strong enough to knock down ladybugs as is MULTI INSECT KILLER. Use either on the outside of the home and attempt to spray as much of the siding and overhangs where you see these invasive ladybugs active. Once inside the home, use the ECO KO AEROSOL for a quick knockdown and lasting residual. Made from food grade active ingredients, ECO Aerosol is both fast acting and safe to use around children and pets. Expect to treat a few times in the fall and then again in the spring. The following year the invasion should be a lot less noticeable and maybe barely detectable depending on how well you knock down the current population in your first year of treating.

Hi,

I have skunks and raccoons digging up our grass going after grubs. I live by a lake and would like to know what natural remedies are out there to use to get rid of the grubs that will not affect the fish in the lake. Thanks for your time. B.

Grubs can cause all kinds of problems including plant death, unwanted soil PH swings and animal predation. If there is water close to grub infested lawns, traditional treatments are usually not recommended. Fortunately there is a wide range of natural alternatives that can be employed. Once these products are put to use and the grub populations are reduced, animals will be forced to forage elsewhere.

One of the best natural grub remedies available now is the ECO GRANULES. Using food oils as actives, these slow dissolving granules can last a month or more and when watered into the dirt. Get some applied now and they will start working immediately. Grub control is best achieved from the winter on through to summer. Most important is that ECO Granules can be used in close proximity to sensitive areas and will not pose a danger to the wildlife, people or pets.

Next, spray over the top with the ECO IC CONCENTRATE as this will get the granules activated and the liquid treatment will help provide a quick kill. If the area is small and the ECO is too big of a container for your needs, get the ORGANIC GRUB RTS. It’s been certified to be used for organic gardening and is very gentle on the turf. It comes with it’s own hose end sprayer so you just have to hook it up the garden hose and you’ll be ready to spray.

One other thing; be sure to check the SOIL PH if you haven’t done so recently. Grub infestations will naturally lower the soil PH and when this level dips below 6.0, it becomes a real problem affecting a wide range of things that may be in the landscape. Being out of balance will cause the soil to render most insecticides, herbicides, fertilizer and other turf products pretty much useless. Additionally, plants won’t be able to grow properly and generally get sick and become more vulnerable to all kinds of problems with out the proper balance PH in the soil. Lastly, acidic or alkaline soil in close proximity to water isn’t good for any fish in the water so make sure the turf has a good PH measurement before beginning any treatment program.
