Target Uses of Eco PCO WP-X
EcoSMART is now featuring a new line of natural botanical pesticides. This new line is the EcoPCO line, designed to be environmentally safe for use around your home and family and be just as effective as other "chemical" insecticides. The active ingredients in these products are derived from plant oils such as rosemary, wintergreen and thyme. Eco PCO WP-X is a wettable powder residual that will remain effective for up to 3 months. Eco PCO WP-X is comparable to chemical insecticide products such as Tempo Ultra WP, Demon WP, and Cynoff WP.
Eco PCO WP-X is ideal when both a wettable powder concentrate formulation and all natural ingredients are desired. Eco PCO WP-X has a broader label than similar products, and it is National Organic Program (NOP) compliant. Eco PCO WP-X is not labeled for edible vegetation.
ACTIVE INGREDIENTS: Phenethyl propionate, 3%, Thyme oil, 5%, Pyrethrins, .05%

EcoPCO WP-X is intended as a general surface, spot, or crack and crevice application indoors.
For crawling pests indoors -- Apply as a coarse, low-pressure treatment to areas where these pests hide or where they may enter the premises. Applications should include cracks/crevices and void areas around and behind interior and exterior walls, cabinets, baseboards, moldings, sinks, pipe openings, storage areas, closets, and appliances. Repeat as necessary.
Pantry Pests (exposed stages) -- Make application to cupboards, shelving and storage areas. Particular attention should be given to treating cracks and crevices and other harborage areas. Remove all utensils, uncovered foodstuffs (or any with package opened), shelf paper and other objects before treating. Allow treated surfaces to dry and cover shelves with clean paper before replacing utensils, foodstuffs or other items.
Stored Product Pests (exposed stages) -- Apply to cracks, crevices and other surfaces where the pests have been seen or have harborage. Treat warehouses, production facilities, storage areas, rail cars, truck beds and other areas where products are stored before filling with the product. EcoPCO WP-X may be used by pest control operators and grain producers to treat grain storage facilities and other areas noted above for stored product pest control. Cleaning of all areas prior to treatment will increase levels of control.
See label for complete application instructions.
Use 3 tbsp (0.5oz.)/gal. of water for most pests. Use 12 tbps (2 oz.)/gal. of water for fire ant mounds, scorpions, spiders, wasps, and similar pests. See above for mixing instructions.
Barrier Treatment -- To help prevent infestation of buildings, apply to a band of soil and vegetation 6 to 10 feet wide around and adjacent to the building. Also, treat the building foundation to a height of 2 to 3 feet where pests are active and may find entrance. Apply as a coarse spray treatment to thoroughly and uniformly wet the foundation and/or band area, using 1 to 5 gallons of treatment solution applied to 800 to 1600 square feet.
Fire ant mounds -- Apply as a drench. Gently sprinkle (watering can) a total of 1 gallon over the surface of mounds up to 1 inch in diameter and 2 gallons for larger mounds. Thoroughly wet mound and surrounding areas. Treat new mounds as they appear. All colonies in the vicinity should be treated.
Scorpions -- Treat and remove accumulations of lumber, firewood, and other materials that serve as harborage sites. Apply as a coarse spray to the point of drip.
Broadcast applications -- Mix required amount of product in sufficient water to uniformly and accurately cover the area being treated. Do not use less than 2 gallons of water per 1000 sq. ft. For optimum control, irrigate thoroughly to incorporate EcoPCO WP-X insecticide into the upper soil profile.

I have to let others know what a hidden treasure this product truly is! I am a professional “Pooper-scooper”, which means I am in many different yards every day as I am working. Also because of my unique job, my client base ranges from a typical 1 dog home, all the way up to hunting kennels with an excess of 75 dogs being housed. Because of my wide customer base, and the Georgia climate, I was seeking a product to help with controlling both fleas and flies. With a little research I chose Eco PCO WP-X to be my first test product. After a little trial and error on learning the most effective application rates and amounts, I have to now admit that I was surprised and pleased that it works so well! Not many products actually do what the labels claim they do each and every time used. This product has drawn praise for me from all my customers whenever it is applied. Add to the fact that not only does it effectively kill fleas and flies, but also a wide range of other secondary insects too. During treatment of barrier areas for fleas and flies, I discovered the added bonus that it works very well on Fire-Ants too! Eco PCO-WP is now a clear influence in cutting the flea and fly issues for my customers. This product has definitely helped my little business to impress, keep, and build my customer base.
The residual action on this product is almost none existent. You almost have to spray the bugs directly in order to notice a significant effect. Even if you mix a lot more, you will end up using a 1 pound bag very fast. When I used Cyper WP or Bifen IT the residual action keeps on killing roaches, spiders, crickets, etc... weeks after I sprayed. Cyper and Bifen also lasted longer because you did not need to use a lot for them to be effective.
As a licensed professional, I have used this product for nearly a decade, and it is nothing short of amazing. I have used lots of the pyrethroid products on Brown Recluse Spiders, and BY FAR this one worked the best. Great for fire ant mounds, too. Has a sort of "bengay" smell, but it's not overpowering.
I love the whole line of EcoSmart pest control products. We use the Eco PCO wettable powder for a variety of organic insect treatments. It works great! We have had no complaints from our technicians or our customers. It's easy to mix in the spray tanks and does not have a bad odor. It might leave a white stain on wood surfaces, so make sure you do a test before spraying the entire surface. Go green with Eco Pco Wpx.
We bought this to use against an ant infestation, but ended up using it for a termite uprising in some new construction. It worked immediately. (The lumbar yard assured us that the wood had been pretreated, but now we know we should always treat it ourselves. Interestingly, the adjoining room - which we treated with BoraCare over a year ago - showed no signs of infestation.) As a happy bonus, the same spray worked to control the ants. It worked so well, we ordered two more containers to keep on hand.
Can I use EcoPCO WP-X on Earwigs and pillbugs in my organic vegetable garden?
I maintain a chemical-free vegetable garden, using soap and pre-emergent oil treatment for fruit trees. Pill bugs and earwigs have been difficult to control with natural methods this far. I have a family member who has cancer, so I do not want any harmful chemicals on our food.
Unfortunately, EcoPCO WP-X is not labeled for use on edible plants. Products that can be used on edible plants are very limited and are usually labeled for only certain types of plants and only certain types of pests. We recommend you contact your local cooperative extension office for product recommendations for your situation.
I am just wondering if the rain will wash the residual powder away? I live in Washington State and it rains alot up here. Would I need to re-treat the perimeter after it rains? Can you recommend a substitute product for ant control that is better suited for a wet climate that is also kid-safe.
Eco PCO WP-X will hold up to rain very well as will most of the products that we sell. It is actually not rain that is the real threat. UV light is what breaks pesticides down the most. You should apply the product when it is not raining and also hopefully when it is not going to rain for at least a few hours so it has time to dry. Once it has had at least a few hours to dry and adhere to the surface that you applied it on it should provide a good 30 to 45 days of residual protection, rain or shine. It is usually a good idea to re-apply every 30 to 60 days during the summer to get the best results.
I'm thinking of buying Eco PCO WP-X. I was wondering if I can spray this on my siding?
I have cedar siding, and it is a dark brown. I need to spray for box elder bugs, and I need to spray higher than what I have read(2 feet up the foundation). I want to know before I buy this product because I heard it works great.
Eco Pco WP-X can be sprayed on your siding, but it may leave a white powdery residue behind. The residue will eventually wear off or you can wash it off after it is no longer effective. If the powdery residue is not acceptable to you, you may want to try Talstar P. Talstar P is odorless, dries clear, leaves no stains, is non-irritating to the skin, and will not break down easily with rainfall and is highly recommended for box elder bugs.
What do you recommend to spray on siding to exterminate wasps?
I'd prefer something non-toxic, and I've heard of Tri-Die and other desiccant dusts, but would they work on (or stick to) siding? Any other product recommendations for wasp control would be awesome. Thanks.
We see that you are looking for something that is "non-toxic". All insecticide products including Tri-Die have some level of toxicity but certain products have lower toxicity levels than others. We recommend that you use a product from the natural insecticide line that we carry. EcoPCO WP-X is a concentrated wettable powder insecticide that is made from a variety of botanical extracts and is labeled for wasps. EcoPCO WP-X will need to be mixed with water and can be applied to exterior surfaces where you see insect activity. Tri-Die is not labeled for wasps and most likely would not provide satisfactory results when used in the manner you have described.
