We strongly suggest that you purchase the Eco Adjuvant with the IC2 product. Adjuvant will drastically increase the performance of the IC2 product.
Eco Exempt IC-2 can be used in tankless misting systems. If you have a tank fed system you should use Eco Exempt MC Misting Concentrate which is less likely to damage the plastic in the misting systems nozzles.
Eco Exempt IC-2 provides rapid knockdown and kill of a broad range of insects. It may be applied as a wet spray while food plants are in operation. Eco Exempt IC maybe used indoors and outdoors. 1 gal. jug
The EcoExempt IC-2 Dust is a versatile, minimum risk product that is exempt from Federal registration because it is made from natural botanical oils like rosemary, wintergreen and eugenol. All EcoEXEMPT products are USDA National Organic Program compliant. The performance and application costs are comparable to conventional pesticides, and have a pleasant botanical fragrance. (Fragrance usually dissipates within several hours of treatment). EcoExempt IC-2 can also be used with an adjuvant when mixed with water to make the product more effective.
No aquatic toxicity
For conventional, misting and fogging equipment
Great for mosquito control programs
New softer botanical scent
To control spiders, flying insects, and other nuisance pests on and around boat docks, and as an aid in the elimination of their harborage areas, dilute 2 to 8 ounces of EcoEXEMPT® IC2 per gallon of water1 and apply at the rate of 2 gallons per 1000 square feet or until area is thoroughly wet.
Since flying insects can migrate in and out of the treatment area, it is recommended to use this product as part of an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program. This includes, but is not limited to,
eliminating breeding and harborage sites.
The use of an approved adjuvant, such as EcoADJUVANT, is required.
EcoExempt IC-2 works like conventional chemical insecticides like:
We hired a professional company to spray our yard every six weeks for tick control. They used Eco Exempt Insecticide and it really worked! Our dog only brought in one tick the whole season! The same company treated our neighbor's yard for mosquitoes using this same product. They were very pleased with the results!
I own a pesticide business and have experienced wonderful results using EcoExempt IC-2. This product really works. On Long Island, there is a big problem with West Nile virus. The government is doing treatments with chemical insecticides. I can't help wondering why they don't use Eco Exempt.
The exterminator that I had used this and it WORKED REALLY WELL, but the exterminator himself was expensive and a complete jerk. My life is better without having to take off work, spend an hour with someone I did not trust in my house and then pay him $125. Anyhoo, I found out he used Eco Exempt IC-2 Insecticide + Adjuvant, so a little Google magic led me to this site. I called customer service as well....very very helpful and knowledgeable. The product arrived, I mixed it per directions and sprayed it myself. Bing, bang, boom...done, no more bugs. And I keep $500 a year.
Appears to be a good product. Good scent. Contact kill on spiders is fast. Made 2nd application today on entry points and in attic. Will need to see how well it prevents. I would have liked to have known more about the adjuvant before purchasing to understand why it needs to be mixed with the spray.
Bought this to get rid of our stink bug problem. Used as directed, mixed with adjuvent & mixture applied easily. Have pets...so was concerned about their safety and its effectiveness. It smells great (who would say that about a pesticide), did not affect pets. Stink bugs came out of their hiding very quickly (influx at 1st), but 2 days later most dead and have not seen any inside as of 6th day!
Mosquito control product containing diatomaceous earth?
Diatomaceous earth is not a good choice when it comes to mosquito control because DE will not adhere to the places mosquitoes like to land such as the underside of leaves on trees and bushes. Also, DE can take a week or more to kill an insect and in that time those insects can continue to bite, breed and lay eggs and in the case of mosquitoes this is just not acceptable. Essentria IC3 would be a much better choice.
Is there any yard tick spray or product we can use near an area that includes a fishing pond?
Pesticides are very hazardous to aquatic life and even the slightest amount of a pesticide can result in dead fish and other aquatic animals. The only products that we really have that can be used around ponds and other bodies of water for mosquitoes, ticks, and other insects is called Eco Exempt IC2 or the Essentria IC3 Insecticide. These are EPA exempt products which means it is an all natural product made from plant extracts and will not harm aquatic life.
How effective is this product on fleas and bedbugs, and if it is what is the recommended dosage to use?
Eco Exempt IC-2 Insecticide is an all natural product that was formulated to compete directly against top synthetic pyrethroid insecticides such as Talstar P or Suspend SC. The majority of our customers that have purchased Eco Exempt IC-2 Insecticide have been very pleased with the results they have received when using it for bedbugs and fleas when used as directed on the product label. We now carry the Essentria IC3 which is a new version of the Eco IC-2 with the adjuvant already included and it is available in a smaller sized package.
Bedbugs: When treating for bed bugs thoroughly clean, vacuum, and air mattresses and springs prior to treatment. Mix EcoEXEMPT IC2 at a rate of 1 to 4 ounces per gallon of water and apply as a spot treatment to cracks and crevices, around baseboards, floorboards, headboards, and walls. In hotels and other public lodging facilities pay special attention to luggage stands and the adjacent area. On mattresses and springs spot treat only areas that may harbor pests. Concentrate on tufts, seams, folds, and creases. Repeat as necessary. To prevent potential discoloring, do not spray on visible areas (i.e. baseboards, door frames, walls, etc.) and wipe away excess. You should use more than one type of product when treating for bedbugs. You should also be using an aerosol spray to get into small cracks and crevices and you should also use a dust insecticide for the longest lasting residual possible. We also recommend using a steamer when and where possible to help kill bedbugs and their eggs on contact with out chemicals.
Use 2 to 4 ounces of EcoEXEMPT IC2 per gallon of water and apply at the rate of 2 to 4 gallons per 1000 square feet or until area is thoroughly wet.
What chemical and fogger should I use for mosquitoes, spider, midges, and a host of other insects?
I live on a lake, with mosquitoes, spider, midges, and a host of other insects. I've tried a lot of different products nothing works more than a couple of days. I have had the lawn fogged professional that was great lasted about a month--- real expensive though. I have grandchildren and pets and we are in the yard often. What should I use?
Eco Exempt IC-2 + Adjuvant would be a good choice to use for most insects and it can be used around the lake without fear of harming the aquatic animals (most insecticides are harmful to fish and other aquatic animals). Eco-Exempt IC-2 can be sprayed or fogged for mosquitoes, midges, spiders and other pests outdoors. Which fogger you use will be a personal choice as they each have their own advantages and disadvantages. You can look at all of the foggers we carry buy clicking on this link : Insecticide Foggers
How long will your natural pest controls (such as Eco Exempt IC2, granules and Niban bait) stay good for?
The Eco Exempt IC2 sprays will last for about 30 days outdoors and about 90 days indoors. Granule insecticides will last for about 4 months after they have been applied. Bait granules will last until they are eaten or they get wet.
