Is EcoSMART as effective as conventional products?
YES! University research and field studies have proven EcoSMART’s botanical products are as effective as conventional pesticides in their ability to kill insects fast and provide effective control. EcoSMART pest control products have been used for more than a decade in professional and agricultural markets and have been proven to kill and control a broad spectrum of insects and other pests. In addition, unlike other botanical insecticides that use a single plant oil, EcoSMART’s formulas are comprised of patented plant oil blends that make the products significantly more effective against insects and other pests. Another key benefit is that, unlike many insecticides on the market, there is no known pest resistance to EcoSMART’s botanical active ingredients.
How safe are EcoSMART insecticides?
Most insecticides are required by EPA to have an extensive list of precautionary and first aid statements on their labels since they use synthetic chemicals as their active ingredient. EcoSMART products, however, don’t bear such warnings. That’s because the FDA classifies the plant oils used in EcoSMART products as “Generally Recognized As Safe” (GRAS) — the same label placed on approved foods and beverages. Additionally, the EPA classifies EcoSMART products as “Minimum-Risk” pest control products, a special category of EPA exemption offered for food grade ingredients. In fact, the active botanical ingredients found in EcoSMART products are the same ingredients commonly found in your spice rack! The EcoSMART active ingredient plant oils utilize a unique, proprietary targeted mode of action that attacks the central nervous system of insects, but have no adverse effect on humans or pets.
Do our family and pets have to leave the room when EcoSMART products are applied?
No, there is no reason to leave the treated area when using EcoSMART products. You can enjoy the utmost in safety and convenience without having to sacrifice effectiveness.
Are EcoSMART insecticides for outdoor use?
Yes, EcoSMART products are suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. Simply read the label on the container for the appropriate directions.
Essentials oils are fragrant. How long does the scent last and is it safe to breathe the air?
We must be sensitive to individual allergies. EcoSMART products are made with essentials oils which by nature are fragrant, but are non-toxic and do not require vacating the area after use. The fragrance will normally dissipate within hours.
Can I spray my dog or cat with your products?
