Directions for Use - 32 oz. Lawn, Kennel and Animal Insect Control Spray Concentrate:
A Natures Defender cedar oil pest control spray formula.

Nature's Defender can be used for outdoor pest control on lawns, on and around patio areas, in flower beds, in fruit or vegetable gardens, in shrubberies, on fruit bearing or other trees and in kennels or other pet and livestock confinement areas. The formula is water soluble and intended to be diluted in various ratios as needed depending on the type of application device you want to use and insect(s) you need to address. Just pre-dilute the concentrate as needed, load the diluted solution into sprayer of choice and spray where desired. Dilution ratios can be further adjusted up or down per your individual results since there are no harsh chemicals to create "overdose" conditions. See below for commonly used sprayer types, general dilution guidelines and what results to expect from cedar oil applications:

Successful outdoor pest control considerations with cedar oil:
  • The first application is the most important. The objective is to make sure a liberal soak is accomplished to all areas including lawn, shrubbery, fruit bearing or other trees, vegetable gardens, flower beds and outdoor animal confinement areas. Include spraying over concrete, over casual standing water and natural foliage. Do not spray on azaleas or rhododendrons. Can apply to fruits or vegetables right up to harvest time.
  • Follow up or maintenance applications only require you get previously treated surfaces wet.
  • When applying Nature's Defender to lawns and other plant life it should be done in the morning or early evening times to avoid possible heat related phytotoxic burn to landscaped areas.
  • Nature's Defender can be applied as a drench or foliage spray.
  • Dilution and application rates will vary depending on the apparatus used to spray the product and insect(s) you need to address.
  • During a heavy insect season you can apply as often as needed.
  • To maintain pest controlled perimeters around homes or other structures, we suggest you start with washing down the side of structures you intend to protect with diluted solution. Using the structure as a center point, continue by spraying grounds outwardly until the desired protection radius is established on all sides of the structure(s).
Lawn and Kennel concentrate is effective with the following:
  • Neutralizes and repels adult insects and offspring on contact. Including, (but not limited to), Ants, Mosquitoes, Flies, Moths, Grubs, Army Worms, Mole Crickets, Fleas, Ticks, Mites, Chiggers, Grasshoppers, White Fly, Mediterranean Fruit Fly, Citrus Rust Mite, Nematodes, Aphids, Scale, Stink Bugs, Bag Worms, Eastern Tent Caterpillar and other flying, biting, or crawling arthropods and subterranean pests. Including subterranean termites.
  • Repels mice, rats, heat seeking venomous snakes.
  • Bio solvent influences of cedar oil will impair insect eggs and larvae on contact by hastening erosion of the exoskeleton and cuticle. The oil promotes rapid dehydration to all phases of the egg-layer cycle. It further interrupts offspring by creating pheromone interference with the insect's octopamine neuro receptors. Even works when applied over standing water to interfere with mosquito life cycles.
  • Cedar oil has natural bactericide and fungicide properties. It will effectively reduce powdery mildew and other fungal organisms such as brown patch, take all patch, dollar spot and other turf yellowing diseases.

The dilution ratios below are general guidelines for pest control using selected sprayer types. Dilution ratios can be increased or decreased until optimal results are obtained. There is no concern of "overdose" in the sense we are not using harsh synthetic chemicals. Individual results will vary due to many factors such as type vegetation or animal confinement being treated, time of year, and geographic conditions of your area will influence optimal dilution ratios for you. With continued use your individual results will ultimately determine the perfect dilution ratio for your situation and treatment objectives.

  • Apply two or three times a day keeping the infested area damp. Continue applications until normal skin and full hair growth is observed.
To treat of existing lice and other external parasitic insect related animal issues:
  • Dilute concentrate to a paste like consistency using a ratio of 50% concentrate and 50% water by volume.
