There’s been a lot written in recent years about the impact of pesticides on our environment and our health. This increased awareness of the dangers of pesticides has caused many consumers to seek pest control solutions that are also the best environmental choices.
At Eco Pest Control, our go-to product brand is EcoSMART, which was the first company to apply modern science to essential plant oils to create safe pesticides. Their products are based on essential oils, which are the natural defenses that plants and trees have used for their self-protection against insects and pathogens for millennia.
Based on Solid Science
University research has shown that essential oils attack octopamine neuro-receptors. Octopamine is a key insect neurotransmitter that regulates insect movement, behavior, and metabolism. The blockage of the receptor activity prevents the transmission of the octopamine signals, which delivers quick knock down, kill, and repellency against a wide variety of household pests such as cockroaches, ants, dust mites, flies, wasps, spiders, crickets, and fleas. EcoSMART’s blends of essential plant oils are effective at killing bugs fast without leaving harmful residues.
EcoSMART has Patents, Too
EcoSMART has been issued 40 U.S. patents and 55 foreign patents. The company has 20 product formulations that are exempt from EPA registration under the rules defined in the 1996 Food Quality Protection Act. Under these rules, EcoSMART’s EPA-exempt products can make unique, explicit safety claims not allowed with traditional pesticides. These safety claims enable EcoSMART to clearly distinguish itself from conventional, synthetic products.
Safe for Use Around Children and Pets
EcoSMART’s blend of essential oils pose an insignificant risk to the environment. The primary active ingredients in their products are approved as Direct Food Additives or classified as GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration. EcoSMART products have no adverse effect on children, pets, wildlife, or the environment and also will not contaminate water sources.
EcoSMART’s university-tested and field-proven technology has provided pest control solutions to the agricultural and commercial markets for many years, providing safe and effective alternatives to conventional insecticides for leading commercial pest control services.
