    Q
    Mosquito control product containing diatomaceous earth?
    A
    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.

    Q
    Is there any yard tick spray or product we can use near an area that includes a fishing pond?
    A
    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.

    Q
    How effective is this product on fleas and bedbugs, and if it is what is the recommended dosage to use?
    A

    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.

    Fleas Outdoors:

    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.

    Q
    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?
    A
    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

    Q
    How much Eco Exempt IC-2 Insecticide + Adjuvant do I use for preventative maintenance around my house?
    I am treating inside my house because I have some spiders around in my basement and attic. I am just wondering what you would recommend for a mixing ratio(Eco Adjuvant and Eco Excempt IC-2).
    A
    Use up to 6 ounces of Eco Exempt IC-2 Insecticide and 1 ounce of Eco Adjuvant per gallon of water for residual spider control indoors and outdoors. You should fill your sprayer with 1/2 gallon of water, add the adjuvant and agitate, add the Eco Exempt IC-2 and agitate, then add the other 1/2 gallon of water and agitate again.

    Q
    Why can you not ship the product to Connecticut?
    I'm having a real bad mosquito problem this summer.
    A
    Connecticut has strict regulations regarding most insecticides and we do not have any control over which products can be shipped there. There is a product called Eco Exempt IC-2 + Adjuvant that is available to our customers in CT and is used to control mosquitoes. Our customer who have used this natural product have reported great results, very comparable to synthetic products they have used in the past.

    Q
    Should I use some type of fogger to control mosquitoes in my yard?
    I live in NY on a wooded lot. I cannot enjoy the backyard when the mosquitoes are so bad.
    A
    Unfortunately you are very limited on what types of products you can purchase in New York and most foggers are restricted. Thankfully there is one product that is available to folks in New York and it does a pretty good job for mosquito control. Eco Exempt IC-2 is an all natural product that can be used in a regular hand pump sprayer or in automatic mosquito misting systems.  To control adult mosquitoes and other biting flies using ground application, dilute 1 to 3 fluid ounces of Eco Exempt IC2 per gallon of
    water. (We strongly suggest that you purchase the Eco Adjuvant with the IC2 product.  Adjuvant will drastically increase the performance of the IC2 product.)  Treat harborage areas such as the underside of leaves on shrubbery and other vegetation where mosquitoes/flies may rest. Shrubbery and vegetation around stagnant pools, marshy areas, ponds and shorelines should also be treated.

    Q
    Eco Exempt IC-2 Insecticide Phytotoxicity? And is it effective against aphids?
    What are the known sensitive plants to Eco-Exempt? Also, will it be effective for rose aphid?
    A
    Eco Exempt IC-2 is labeled for aphids and should do a great job for you. Exceeding maximum usage rates may create potential phytotoxocity on plant surfaces. You can find the usage instructions for aphids on the product label. We recommend that you call the manufacturer for information on plant species that may be sensitive to Eco Exempt IC-2 as we do not have that information. You can reach Prentiss at 800-652-2427.

  • Asked by Matt
    07/30/2011
    Q
    How does eco exempt IC-2 kill flying insects?
    A
    All insecticides can only kill any insect if the insect, or fly in this case, comes into contact with it.  When treating for flies you should apply the insecticide to any surface that the flies typically land on.  Once they land on the surface they will pick up the product on their body and eventually be killed.  It is not an immediate kill, but depending on how long ago the surface was applied and how fresh the product is will determine how long it takes for the fly to die.  We do have very effective fly control traps that you may want to try also.

    Q
    Best way to spray for mosquitoes in NC
    We have a pool in the back and live in a very wooded area. Mosquitoes are BAD back there, but I'd hate to kill all the beneficial bugs also. I hear garlic sprays work well, as does Permethrin, but am not sure how to go about this myself. Misting systems are $3000 and I'm not sure that's a good way to go. Help?
    A
    Unfortunately insecticides are not selective. Spraying for mosquitoes will also have some effect on the beneficial insects since their basic biology is the same. Eco Exempt IC-2  plus Eco Adjuvant would be a good choice for mosquito control. Eco Exempt IC-2 is an all natural product that would need to be mixed with adjuvant (available on our website) and water and then sprayed on the underside of the leaves of trees and bushes and around the perimeter of your property.

    Q
    Mosquito control with Eco Exempt IC-2 Insecticide
    I will be using a backpack fogger and would like the ratio for the product. Do I need to add eco- adjuvant? Do you carry any granules for mosquito control on turf?
    A
    When fogging Eco-Exempt IC-2, the label recommends using between 4 and 10 ounces per gallon of water.  You should use the Eco-adjuvant with the Eco-Exempt IC2.  The Eco-adjuvant will help the Eco-Exempt IC2 stick better to leaves, shrubs, and trees and help it last longer outside. The Eco-Exempt IC2 has been discontinued by the manufacturer. It has been replaced with Essentria IC3 which includes the adjuvant in the product.  You should direct the fog at shrubs, bushes, and trees, and especially the underside of leaves which is where mosquitoes hang out at during the day.  There is not a good granules for mosquitoes since most of them are on or under leaves and not on the ground once they are adults.

    Q
    Is Eco Exempt IC-2 Insecticide really as good as chemicals? Will it get rid of Stink Bugs?
    Hey, I really like your site, and once I figure out what to get, I'm definitely buying from you. I have a big stink bug problem. They are all over the outside of my house. Thousands of them. I need them gone before they come in. I'm looking at Cynoff EC, but I would certainly prefer a more environmental friendly alternative. Is this really just as good? I really need something that will work. Thanks for your time
    A
    The manufacturer of Eco Exempt IC2 claims that it does work just as well as synthetic products. We have not had any complaints from customers that have purchased and used the Eco Exempt IC-2, but we do not have any feed back from anyone using it for stink bugs. Eco Exempt IC-2 Insecticide does not offer an instant knockdown of any insect; after insects contact treated areas they will usually die after a few hours.

    Q
    Indoor and Outdoor application of Eco Exempt IC-2.
    I have been spraying the baseboards in my house with ECO Exempt Ic-2, and I was wondering how often should I do this? I was spraying it every thirty days indoors and every two weeks outside. Can I spray it less often? How long can I expect it to keep killing spiders before I reapply indoors and outdoors? How long is the residual killing power?
    A
    According to the manufacturer, Eco Exempt IC-2 has about the same residual activity as commercial synthetic pyrethroid insecticides. This means it should last about 1 month outdoors and up to 3 months indoors.

    Q
    How effective is Eco Exempt IC-2 against black widow spiders?
    A
    Eco Exempt IC-2 Insecticide is labeled for spiders and we have had many reports from other customers that the control of spiders is very good with this product. Spiders do take longer to actually die after coming into contact with insecticides however and an immediate knockdown should not be expected. Eco Exempt IC-2 Insecticide will also help to eliminate other insects that the spiders feed on which in turn will make your property less appealing to incoming spiders.

    Q
    What is the Eco Adjuvant for? Do I have to use it with the EcoExempt IC-2?
    A
    The Eco Adjuvant improves the effectiveness of most pesticides and herbicides. It helps the botanical oils in the Eco Exempt IC-2 mix with the water you use to dilute the product. It is very important that you use the adjuvant as directed on the product label, usually 1 ounce per gallon of finished solution.
