Pyrethroids

The Oleoresin extract of the CHRYSANTHEMUM flower contains a natural insecticide. EcoShield uses a synthesized derivative of these naturally occurring botanical ketoalcholic esters called Pyrethroids. These synthetic derivatives have a longer residual and are as much as 50 times less toxic than the natural insecticide, while performing the same function.

Pyrethroids have been used as a topical treatment for Head Lice, various cat and dog pest treatments.

100% Organic

By harnessing the oils found in plants and trees it is possible to fight insects by using the same protection that certain types of vegetation has used for thousands of years. University research has shown that these 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.

Botanical oil blends attack attributes that are specific only to pests, they have no effect on people, pets or the environment. The primary active ingredients in 100% Organic pesticides are approved as Direct Food Additives or classified as GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration. These oils are commonly used to add flavor and aroma to many cosmetic, beverage and food products, including cake, candy, sweetener, gum, soft drinks, and lipstick. Children and pets are safe. No need to clear them out after application or be concerned if they are near our products. These products have no adverse effect on mammals, birds, and fish and also will not contaminate water sources.

Restricted Use Products

Because of safety concerns, some pesticides are not available to the general public in the US. The “Restricted Use” classification restricts a product, or its uses, to use by a certificated pesticide applicator or under the direct supervision of a certified applicator. This means that a license is required to purchase and apply the product.

Banned Products

Two of the most common Banned products are Organochlorines and Organphosphates.

Chlordane

Chlordaneis an example of a widely-used organochlorine that is now not available in the U.S. It was removed from commercial sales in 1988 following discoveries that it was a probable human carcinogen and its residual effects negatively impacted the environment. It was used for more than 60 years to kill termite colonies and other insects.

DDT

DDT Even though someone created DDT back in the 19th century, only around 1939 did Dr. Paul Muller discover that it was effective in killing insects, and shortly after, he won the nobel prize in medicine for this work.As a pesticide, DDT was first used during WWII. It was so effective as an insect killer that some called it the “atomic bomb” of pesticides. Because of all these uses for DDT, the United States used a lot of it during the mid-1900s. (At one point, the US was producing 220 million pounds of DDT a year!) By the 1970s, we began to get worried about DDT’s environmental and health effects. So finally in June of 1972, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Banned all use of DDT on crops.

Organophosphates

Organophosphates are a diverse group of chemicals used in both domestic and industrial settings. Examples of organophosphates include insecticides (malathion, parathion, diazinon, fenthion, dichlorvos, chlorpyrifos, ethion), nerve gases (soman tabun, VX), ophthalmic agents (echothiophate, isoflurophate), and antihelmintics (trichlorfon). Herbicides (tribufos [DEF], merphos) are tricresyl phosphate–containing industrial chemicals.
