Overview: PCO Cedar Oil Concentrate for Outdoor Pest Control.
A bio-based insect neutralizer intended for outdoor use to repel fleas, ticks, mites, mosquitoes, flies, chiggers, no-see-ums, bed bugs, Japanese beetles, scorpions, carpet beetles, ants, mole crickets, venomous snakes and numerous other non-beneficial insects. It poses no harm to people, the environment, pets, farm animals, water ways, soil, crops or the community as a whole. Also reduces bacteria, mildew and fungus due to natural microbial properties inherent to cedar oil which helps control Brown Patch, Take All Patch, Dollar Spot and other turf yellowing disease. As a larvacide, cedar oil hastens dehydration of eggs and larvae to interrupt the insect life cycle. Even works in standing water.

Dr. Ben's Evictor Indoor Insect Control Cedar Oil Spray Formula.
Evictor is a safe, effective, easy to use, all natural cedar oil based pest control solution. No harsh chemicals in this product. It is an insect neutralizer and pest repellent that is designed primarily for indoor use. This proprietary formula contains just pure cedar oil that has been extracted from Texas Red Cedar trees and an inert carrier, hydrated silica that creates a unique bio-influenced solution that quickly neutralizes insects of the arthropod family on contact. Mosquitoes, chiggers, no-see-em's, flies, ants, roaches, fleas, ticks, mites weevils, silverfish and a host of other annoying insects are all targets of this natural formula. Cedar oil also repels rats, mice and venomous snakes. Cedar oil is an essential oil that has long been known to have naturally potent insecticidal properties with pheromone diffusion qualities that adversely affect non essential insects and many other unwanted pests.

Dr. Ben's Paws and Claws Flea, Tick and Mite Spray Formula.
Helps keep dogs and cats both insect and toxin free. This all natural cedar oil formula is a topically applied spray insect control and skin rejuvenatory solution. Spray Paws and Claws on skin/coat to neutralize and repel fleas, ticks, mites, mange, lice, mange mites, ear mites and other flying or biting insects on contact. Soothes irritated skin and provides symptomatic relief from effects of flea dermatitis, dry flaky skin, hot spots, mange, burrowing mange mites, ear mites and other parasitic related ailments. Antimicrobial properties of cedar oil will hasten the pets natural healing process for yeast and bacterial infections of the ear canal. Skin rejuvenatory qualities of cedar oil assist your pet's natural healing capabilities with skin damage associated with insect activity. Dr. Ben's helps promote conditions for natural healing so that normal hair growth returns in extreme situations.

Phenols and Dr. Ben's Paws and Claws.
This product is Phenol free... Phenols, (also known as carbolic acid), are aromatic organic compounds that naturally occur in cedar wood and cedar wood oils. Cats particularly can be sensitive to Phenols. Phenols have been removed from all cedar oil that is used in the formulation of Paws and Claws.

Why cedar oil for pest control?
We consider cedar oil from the Texas Hill Country to be the most potent essential oil available for insect control use. Dr. Ben's and Natures Defender only use cedar oil obtained only from the Texas Hill Country in all of their insect control formulas.

Why use an all natural pest control product?
Anecdotal evidence suggests many parasitic and/or other nuisance insects such as mosquitoes, fleas, mites, ticks and bed bugs could be developing natural immunity to man made synthetic pesticides. Although our society has become accustomed to rely upon modern science to provide answers for our pest control needs, many such man made and chemically induced products seem to have become less effective to reduce unwanted insect activity.

Historically there is no known mechanism by which insects can develop resistance to cedar oil. That is why we think using cedar oil based insecticide products will undoubtedly result in pest control being one less thing for you to think about.

Growing numbers of both university and independent researchers are publicizing reports indicating strong evidence may exist to show that long term exposure to harsh chemicals found in today's synthetic pesticides could have significant negative impact on many health issues of adults, children, animals, plant life and even the well being of our entire environment.

Dr. Ben's offers an extremely effective alternative to the chemical problem. It is a minimum risk and federally registration exempt pesticide product made from all natural ingredients. No synthetic or laboratory produced chemicals here. It consistently delivers quality performance when applied for indoor control of mosquitoes, chiggers, no-see-em's, flies, ants, ticks, weevils, silverfish and a host of other annoying insects. Repels rats, mice and venomous snakes too. Adult and juvenile insects which come into contact with this solution will become totally overwhelmed and either expire very quickly or will immediately move on to more hospitable areas. An exclusive additional benefit of this proprietary formula includes quick demise of three generational phases of the pest life cycle. When applied to unhatched insect offspring this formula will promote rapid dehydration of eggs, larvae and pupae.

How does Dr. Ben's cedar oil formula neutralize and repel unwanted pest activity?
Evictor relies on insect resistant properties that are naturally inherent to cedar oil. Many people recognize that historically cedar wood has been known to neutralize and repel insect activity. Dr. Ben Oldag was instrumental in the experimentation of an insect targeting "cocktail" that combines cedar oil with an inert compound known as hydrated silica. Dr. Ben's research determined that by extracting pure oil from Texas Red Cedar trees refining it and combining with silica the result serves to greatly enhance natural pest control properties of cedar oil. Today we have a product that is generally recognized as safe (GRAS), yet it will seriously interfere with several critical life functions of insects of the arthropod family.

Dr. Ben's formula acts in one or more of the following ways to affect unwanted pests:

  • Promotes osmotic dehydration by leaching moisture from the insects body, the solution essentially deprives insects of life giving water.
  • Triggers interference with breathing by causing serious irritation to the respiratory system of many insects, especially those of a high olfactory nature. Dr. Ben's forces the insect body to involuntarily stop breathing. By shutting down life giving respiration, the insect's reflex is attempting to avoid taking in these extremely powerful irritants. Since the insect must eventually breath, the formula will ultimately enter the respiratory system within a very short period of time, (usually about 30 to 40 seconds).
  • One each compression style pump-up atomizer for product application.
  • Creates a pheromone induced mind altering interference. This is a reaction that interrupts and attacks the octopamine neuro-receptors that are crucial for neurotransmitter regulation of metabolism, movement, feeding, reproduction and overall behavior. In short, the formula seriously disorients the insect and can result in severe brain damage to unwanted pests.
  • Life cycle disruption. Cedar oil dehydrates and dissolves insect eggs, larvae, pupae on contact. This shuts down the reproductive cycle and reduces the birth rate of future generations.
  • Cedar oil hastens general life threatening events to insects including erosion of the exoskeleton and cuticle in adult and juvenile insects. This exposes the internal organs of the insect and they are easily vulnerable to external conditions and environmental elements.

Directions for Use - PCO Choice Concentrate Outdoor Insect Control Spray:

PCO Choice in combination with large amounts of water will be instrumental to repel numerous non beneficial insects and pests including, but not limited to, ants, fleas, ticks, mites, flies, mosquito's, scorpions, moths, beetles, mole crickets, grubs, cinch bugs, army worms, mole crickets, chiggers, grasshoppers, white fly, Mediterranean fruit flies, citrus rust mites, nematodes, aphids, scale, stink bugs, bag worms, eastern tent caterpillars, snakes, rodents and numerous other flying, crawling or subterranean pests. It has no effect on beneficial or pollinator insects such as butterflies, bee's and any of the amphibian or lizard family.

Dilution ratio's vary depending on intended use and application method.

General Usage Guidelines:
The first application is the most important. The objective is to make sure a liberal soak is accomplished to all areas including shrubberies, trees, grass and concrete areas. Spray over casual standing water to knockdown mosquito activity. PCO Choice can be used as a drench or foliage spray. During a heavy insect season you can apply as often as needed. PCO Choice can be applied to fruits and vegetable right up to harvest time. Do not spray on azaleas or rhododendrons. When applying Nature's Defender 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 in temperatures exceeding 90 degrees F.

Follow up applications should be conducted as needed by simply getting the previously treated areas wet with solution. If you apply this follow up protocol, you can enjoy a significant reduction of insects and pheromone driven pests that may be in the area. Often insects will not travel more than 150 feet. By maintaining a minimum 150 foot radius around areas you designate as an "off limit" zone future pest activity is unlikely to be a frequent problem.

PCO Choice concentrate using a hose end sprayer:
Pour 4 ounces of PCO concentrate into the cup of the hose end applicator (cup usually has legend). Fill to the 32 ounce line with tap water. 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). You are ready to begin spraying. 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. When the spray cup is empty, refill per above and continue spraying until finishing all areas you wish to treat. This treatment is very inexpensive and will help resolve many other issues such as scale on plants, powdery mildew and other fungal problems that may exist. PCO loves water so periodic rains will enhance it's performance.

Common dilution ratios for treatment by applicator type:

  • 20 gallon garden type hose end sprayer:
    Pour 8 ounces of concentrate into cup of hose end sprayer. Fill remainder of cup to fill line with water. Screw on hose end top to close cup and hook up to a garden hose. This will give you approximately 20 full gallons of ready-to-spray insect protection product.
  • Trigger type, Back Pack & Pump up sprayers:
    Mix 3% or 4 ounces of concentrate to one gallon water. One quart Nature's Defender concentrate makes 8 gallons of spray ready product.
  • Large trailer or truck mounted tank applicators:
    64 ounces of concentrate to 55 gallons of water
    1 gallon of concentrate to 100 gallons of water
    2 gallon of concentrate to 200 gallons of water
  • Misting Systems:
    Mix 32 ounces of Nature's Defender concentrate to 55 gallons of water in drum
  • Water Injection Systems:
    2 to 3 ounces concentrate per 1000 sq. ft. per zone - per month
  • Non thermal fogging:
    3% (or 4 ounces of concentrate to one gallon water)

Establishing an insect free perimeter around buildings:
First spray the sides of the structure(s) you wish to protect, (this could be your home for example), with properly diluted cedar oil spray per the application method you are using. Continue treating surfaces including concrete, soil, masonry, lawns, gardens and other vegetation while moving in an outward direction from the building until you are satisfied you have covered the perimeter you wish to treat.

Grub worm treatments:
Using 8 ounces Natures Defender to one gallon of water in a back pack, trigger or compression sprayer you need to saturate the infested area to penetrate deep into the soil. Best time to spray is right before a good rainfall. Otherwise follow up with regular watering or spray additional water right on top of treatments to achieve deep penetration of the cedar solution into the soil.

Directions for Use - Dr. Ben's Evictor Indoor and Paws and Claws Pest Control Formulas.
Ready to use formula. Do not dilute. Dr. Ben's is primarily intended for indoor use and should not be used to treat live plants.

How to treat indoors with Evictor for general insect control:
No measuring or mixing since this solution comes ready-to-use. Can safely apply as often as desired to keep pests away. Surfaces treated with Dr. Ben's will neutralize and repel adult and juvenile insects from the area and will quickly promote dehydration of unborn eggs and larvae on contact. Periodic applications will insure the life cycle is disrupted and will keep the area free of unwanted insects.

Evictor is well suited to apply on virtually any surface. Spray on and under all types of wood, cloth or leather furnishings. Can use on any style flooring material including hardwood, tile, carpet, rugs, mop boards and floor molding. Spray on mattresses and box springs, on closeted or other stored clothing. Use on bathroom cabinets, under sinks, inside cupboards, drawers or on appliances. Spray along all surface cracks, along baseboards, around window sills and on counter tops. After spraying wipe down food service or preparation counter tops prior to food preparation to avoid contaminating food or drink. This product is not intended for internal consumption. However it is safe to use on your skin. If applying to facial areas, spray into hands, then massage on facial skin to avoid contact with eyes. Although cedar oil as the active ingredient the solution does not leave an oily residue behind. Will not stain or attract dirt.

Hold bottle upright and aim spray nozzle toward intended treatment areas and spray. Whenever possible, be sure the mist comes into direct contact with insects. Direct spraying of insect activity with this solution is the most effective method to reduce presence of unwanted pests quickly.

How to treat indoors with Evictor for pest infestations including bed bugs, bird mites, rodent mites and other stubborn infestations:
When treating entire rooms or structures for indoor pest infestations, be sure to refer to treatment preparation protocols for applying Dr. Ben's cedar oil insect control formulas. See the usage tab on our gallon size Evictor product page and click on the text link "Download Bed Bug Agenda" at the bottom of the screen.

How to treat for outdoor spot sightings of unwanted insects with Evictor:
This formula is not plant friendly. If you see insects outdoors that you would like to immediately deal with in areas that do not involve plant life, Evictor will manage the problem quickly. Just spray the affected area(s) you wish to treat. Remember that the Evictor formula dissipates very quickly outdoors. For plant friendly solutions that offer longer term prevention outdoors, please refer to the outdoor section of the website or scroll to the related items below.

How to treat your pet with Dr Ben's Paws and Claws for flea, tick and mite control:
Spray a liberal amount directly on your pet including paws, legs, pits, groin, belly, neck, tail and rectum area. Always avoid contact of the solution with your pets eyes. For facial application to pets, spray product on hands and rub onto areas of the face that you wish to protect. Many pet owners apply a quick spray treatment before taking pets out for a walk or when pets are returning to the home environment after being out anywhere. Can also be applied to pet bedding areas or to any type of pet housing. Use as often as necessary. No chemicals here. Cedar oil is the only active ingredient.
Begin with application to lower parts of the body such as paws and/or legs. Gradually work your way up your pet's body by applying in sections. For example, you may start with application to paws and legs, then apply spray to belly and groin areas, apply to upper back and finally, you may wish to apply to facial areas. Always avoid contact with eyes. Spray the formula into palm of your hand and rub onto pet's face wherever facial application is desired.
Use as needed. We recommend performing flea, tick and mite applications at least once or twice a week.

A note for 1st time users of Paws and Claws:
Pet owners have reported a phenomenon that could signal a particular pet's sensitivity to the presence of cedar oil. As a precautionary measure, the following procedure for first use of Paws and Claws is recommended:
Some pets have been reported to groom attempting to remove applied cedar oil. During the grooming process, your pet may ingest the formula and could develop an upset stomach, exhibit a lethargic appearance, or, in rare cases may regurgitate as a result. Cat owners in particular have reported more susceptibility to this. If you observe any of these reactions with your pet, rinse the formula from applied areas and make sure your pet has plenty of fresh water available to drink. After a day or so you may wish to spot apply sparingly to see if your pet will gradually accept the formula. This is often simply be a process of an individual pet becoming accustomed to cedar oil. Continued applications of cedar oil insect control products are at the sole discretion of the individual pet owner.

How to treat pets experiencing intense flea, tick, mite or mange infestations:
This procedure will neutralize fleas, ticks, mites or other intense parasitic insect activity and help hasten the healing of damaged skin. Apply oil generously to damaged areas or hot spots on the skin. You should be able to see rapid exodus of insects from "hot spot" locations. Apply at least 3 times or more daily until skin returns to normal. Do not rinse. Anti microbial properties inherent to cedar oil will assist your pet's natural ability to repair the damaged skin and promote hair re-growth. Note that Dr. Ben's cedar oil aroma in large concentration could become overwhelming to the senses. Heavy applications should be performed in well ventilated areas to avoid discomfort for you or your pet.

How to treat with Paws and Claws for ear mites or other insect related problems of the ears:
Applications of Dr. Ben's in the ear will help neutralize ear mites and sooth chronic fungal organism issues of the ears. Be sure you to familiarize yourself with cautionary procedures when dealing with ears. There are many reputable articles available on the internet with good advice regarding animal ear care procedure. We encourage you to do a little research regarding acceptable methods and tools for caring for your pet's ears.

If you suspect a recurring source of fleas, ticks or mites may be originating from your pet's periodic outdoor activities, be sure to include treating outdoor areas that your pets frequently visit with the outdoor insect control products included in this kit.
