I thought I would probably need more than I bought, but I wanted to make sure it worked. I live in as rural an area as possible in the woods. I have an herb shop next to my house and just going from one building to the other I am eaten up with chiggers. Or should I say, I was.
It says it all when I say that I am going to order more.
Great product! I worked in pest control for 3 1/2 years with a Branch 2 license in California. I felt very safe useing this product around my customers pets(I love dogs and cats). Works great on fleas and ticks(grass/weeds have to be mowed down short). I am going to try the other Eco produts. This company is great to work with.
Do the Eco Exempt G Granules work for ticks too? Is it ok to use the product in the backyard with dogs present?
The Eco Exempt G Granules are not specifically labeled for ticks, but the granules do say they are effective on all pests in landscape, turf, and perimeters of residential homes which is where ticks reside. Eco Exempt G Granules are made from plant extracts and completely all natural. For this reason, they are very safe to use around pets. You should apply the granules every 30 days for optimum results.
Will EcoExempt work for Millipede pests? How does it compare to BifenLP, Talstar, or other chemical granules?
Is there any study on the effectiveness of this to kill hundreds of little millipedes on my backyard compared to the other commercially available chemical products?
Eco Exempt G Granules is labeled for millipedes and should do a great job helping you to eliminate the infestation. We are not aware of any specific study related to Eco Exempt G on millipedes but these granules are formulated to compete directly with the other name brand granule insecticide products that you mentioned. We also recommend that you do not rely on insecticides alone to get rid of millipedes. Millipedes are usually in any given area because there is too much moisture there. You must do your part by correcting the moisture issue. Please take a few minutes to read our article Get Rid of Millipedes to learn more about making your property less favorable to this pest.
How quick/slow is the kill time for fire ants? Will kill the queen?
The Eco Exempt G Granules have been discontinued so as an alternative for fire ants you could go with the replacment insecticide granules of Essentria G Granules, or a better option like a bait for the mounds with Extinguish Plus. If you already have the Eco Exempt Granules the label does not specify any treatments for fire ants or mound treatments. The replacement Essentria states:
FOR ANT MOUNDS/NESTS:
Sprinkle 1 to 2 teaspoons over the nest. For red imported fire ant mounds, use up to 1/2 cup (8
tablespoons) over each mound and up to 2 feet around each mound.
This product has been replaced by Essentria G Granules. Same great product, the manufacturer just changed the name. According to the product label it does not state that the granules can be used in pasture or grazing areas. To make sure this is still correct you can contact the manufacturer of the product at 888-241-8088
