Nature's Defender has combined refined oil that has been refractionated from cedar trees found in East Central Texas with an inert ingredient (Ethyl Lactate/Lactic Acid) to create a water soluble easy to use insect spray. The formula dilutes with ordinary tap water. Diluted product can be distributed efficiently using a variety of spray methods. Hand held pump-up style pressure sprayers, back pack sprayers, garden type hose end sprayers or non-thermal fogging machines all work well to distribute cedar oil. Dilution ratios can also be prepared in larger quantities for distribution using farm or agricultural type industrial spraying methods. Can also be used with misting and automatic irrigation systems.

Directions for Use - Gallon Garden and Agricultural Concentrate Outdoor Insect Control Spray:
A Nature's Defender PCO Choice Cedar Oil Product.

G&A concentrate in combination with large amounts of water will repel numerous non beneficial insects and pests. For a first time application of cedar oil it is important to consider applying a heavy saturation of spray to kick start get the area. Follow up applications should be conducted as needed by simply getting previously treated areas wet with the solution.

Steps to begin when using a hand held hose end sprayer:
  • Pour 4 ounces of concentrate into the cup of the hose end applicator (cup usually has legend).
  • Add water to the fill line, mix well.
  • Attach sprayer to a garden hose, set the sprayer controls to medium settings.
  • Make sure the product lever to "on" (if your sprayer has one) and you are ready to begin spraying.
  • Turn on hose and spray any outdoor areas in which you wish to reduce insect presence.
  • When the spray cup is empty, refill per above and continue spraying until finishing all areas you wish to treat.
Spray treatment tips:
  • Include concrete, patios, masonry, fences, lawns, gardens, trees, soil, shrubberies and other foliage while moving in an expanding radius until you have covered the perimeter you wish to protect.
  • Spray over any casual standing water to knockdown future mosquito activity.
  • Apply cedar oil periodically, or as needed, so you can enjoy a significant reduction of unwanted insects and pests throughout the seasons.
  • During periods of heavy insect activity you can apply as often as needed without worry about "overdose" since the formula does not contain any synthetic chemicals.
  • It's a good idea to spray in the morning or early evening times. Avoid hot times of day since applying the oil in direct sunlight can cause phytotoxic burn to plant life whenever temperatures exceed 90 degrees F.
  • The solution will dilute further as you spray since water is being added from the hose so you can expect it will cover a large area.
  • Will help resolve many issues such as brown patch, take all patch, dollar spot, and other turf yellowing disease, scale on plants, powdery mildew and other fungal problems that may exist.
  • G&A loves water so periodic rains will enhance it's performance.

We recommend extending treated surfaces to cover ground 150 feet beyond your established "off limit" zones.

Establishing an insect free perimeter around buildings:
  • Using any style applicator and dilution ratio you wish start by spraying all sides of any structure(s) you wish to protect.
  • Continue by spraying all ground surfaces surrounding the structure including concrete, patios, masonry, fences, lawns, gardens, trees, soil, shrubberies and other foliage while moving in an expanding radius until you have covered the perimeter you wish to protect.
Grub worm treatments:
  • Using 8 ounces Natures Defender to one gallon of water in a back pack, trigger or pump-up sprayer you will want to saturate the infested area(s) with solution to penetrate deep into the soil.
  • Best time to spray is right before a good rainfall.
  • Follow up with regular watering to promote deep penetration of the cedar solution into the soil.
