Essentria All Purpose Insecticide Concentrate is a natural pesticide that provides a wide range of pest control, while being safe for the environment. Using Octopamine BlockerSM Technology, it confuses the insect's nervous system, offering immediate knockdown with long lasting protection, only affecting the target insects. This makes the insecticide great for sensitive areas, organic landscape programs, even near or over bodies of water. Essentria All Purpose Insecticide Concentrate is also National Organics Program (NOP) complaint and is an EPA FIFRA 25(b) Exempt product, containing plant oils that leave a nice scent behind as they clear the application area of insects, even in the most difficult situations. Essentria All Purpose can be applied by sprayers, misters, fogging applicators, you can even drench it in the right areas.
This product used to be sold and marketed under the Envincio brand name.

GENERAL PEST CONTROL:
To control accessible, exposed stages of crawling insects including, but not limited to, ants, bed bugs, cockroaches, cadelles, cigarette beetles, dark mealworms, dried fruit beetles, drugstore beetles, confused floor beetles, fleas, grain mites, fowl mites, mites, nuisance beetles (such as lady beetles), red flour beetles, rice weevils, saw-toothed grain beetles, spiders, spider beetles, yellow mealworms in sites that include, but are not limited to, apartments, homes, restaurants, food processing plants, industrial installations and warehouses, dilute at the rate of up to 0.5 to 6 fluid ounces of Essentria All Purpose Insect Concentrate per gallon of water (use lower rate for maintenance service and higher rates for active infestations). Thoroughly spray non-visible areas where these insects are usually found with special attention to cracks and crevices, niches, dark corners, drains and other harborage sites. When treating for bed bugs mix Essentria All Purpose Insect Concentrate at a rate of 1 to 6 ounces per gallon of water. Thoroughly clean, vacuum, and sanitize mattress and bedding. Thoroughly apply as a fine particle broadcast spray, paying special attention to cracks and crevices, around baseboards, floorboards, headboards, nightstands, walls, and other harborage areas. On mattresses you may apply a broadcast treatment, concentrating on the tufts, seams, folds, and creases. Old pet bedding should be removed and replaced with clean, fresh bedding after treatment. Repeat as necessary.
To control crawling and flying insects (moths and flies, including house flies, horse flies, stable flies, horn flies, mosquitoes, gnats, fruit flies, phorid flies, etc) in sites that include, but are not limited to, food processing plants, (including USDA inspected facilities), industrial installations, cattle barns, horse barns, poultry barns, swine houses, zoos and warehouses, Essentria All Purpose Insect Concentrate may be applied as a space spray through conventional fogging equipment misting systems (including mist sprayers and mist blowers), automated spray systems, and related application technologies. Cover or remove exposed food and cover food-handling surfaces in edible product areas of food handling establishments. Also cover sensitive surfaces (plastics, etc). Close and shut off air conditioning or ventilating equipment. Mix 4 to 10 ounces of Essentria All Purpose Insect Concentrate insecticide with sufficient oil to equal 1 gallon of diluted spray. (It is recommended to use lower rates in most food facility applications). Apply at a rate of 1 to 3 fluid ounces per 1000 cubic feet, filling the room with mist (or fog, if thermal equipment is used). Keep area closed for at least 15 minutes. Vacate the area before treating it and ventilate the room before reoccupying. Fogging may create slippery conditions on painted floor surfaces. Reapply if reinfestation occurs. The product does contain plant oils that are inherently fragrant, so the fragrance may be objectionable to some individuals.
PERIMETER TREATMENTS AND RECREATIONAL AREAS:
To control aphids, ants, bees, boxelder bugs, centipedes, cockroaches, crickets, darkling beetles, firebrats, fleas, ground beetles, fowl mites, mites, millipedes, pillbugs, silverfish, sowbugs, spiders, ticks and wasps. In compressed air sprayers, dilute 1 to 8 ounces of Essentria All Purpose Insect Concentrate per gallon of water (use lower rate for maintenance service and higher rates for active infestations) and apply at the rate of 2 gallons per 1000 square feet or until area is thoroughly wet. Also apply to a band of soil and vegetation 6 to 10 feet wide around and adjacent to buildings. Treat the building foundation to a height of 2 to 3 feet with sufficient water for coverage. Make special efforts to spray areas such as, but not limited to, waste receptacles, dumpsters, unoccupied picnic tables, the exterior of food handling establishments, and food pavilions, where pest species congregate. Additionally apply around potential entry areas such as, but not limited to, eves, windows, doorways, porches, porch lights, and around utility boxes.
MOUND DRENCH METHOD - FOR CONTROL OF FIRE ANTS AND OTHER MOUNDING ANTS:
Dilute 2 to 4 ounces of Essentria All Purpose Insect Concentrate per gallon of water. Apply 1 to 2 gallons of emulsion to each mound area by sprinkling the mound until it is wet and treat a 4 foot diameter circle around the mound. Use the higher volume for mounds larger than 12 inches. For best results, apply in cool weather, such as the early morning or late evening hours.
MOSQUITO CONTROL AND OTHER BITING FLIES - OUTDOOR YARD OR BARRIER TREATMENT:
To control adult mosquitoes and other biting flies using ground application, dilute 1 to 3 fluid ounces of Essentria All Purpose Insect Concentrate per gallon of water. Treat harborage areas such as shrubbery and vegetation around stagnant pools, marshy areas, ponds and shorelines where mosquitoes/flies may rest. Repeat as necessary.
MOSQUITO CONTROL AND OTHER BITING INSECTS - AUTOMATIC SPRAYING SYSTEMS:
Automatic spraying systems must not be programmed to release pesticides where food or feed is directly exposed. To control flies, house flies, horn flies, stable flies, horse flies, mosquitoes and gnats, add concentrate to tank and add water to obtain desired dilution. Agitate well while adding water and keep agitating while the system is in use. Essentria All Purpose Insect Concentrate may be stored in automatic spraying systems for extended periods of time, not to exceed one month, as long as the system has agitation and the appropriate quantity of adjuvant is used. Dispense the diluted concentrate through automatic spraying system. Set nozzles to deliver one ounce of liquid per minute. Locate the nozzles to cover a maximum of 2,000 cubic feet of space per nozzle. Set timer to operate in accordance with equipment directions. Dilute Essentria All Purpose Insect Concentrate just prior to use at 0.5 to 3 ounces per gallon of water (Use lower dilution rates for preventative applications).
TO CONTROL SPIDERS, FLYING INSECTS, AND OTHER NUISANCE PESTS ON AND AROUND BOAT DOCKS:
As an aid in the elimination of their harborage areas, dilute 2 to 8 ounces of Essentria All Purpose Insect Concentrate per gallon of water 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, which can be targeted at eliminating breeding and harborage sites.
USE ON TURF AND GRASS:
Use Essentria All Purpose Insect Concentrate alone as a contact spray to control Ants, Armyworms, Billbugs, Chinch Bugs, Chiggers, Crickets, Cutworms, Earwigs, Fleas, Grasshoppers, Hyperodes Weevils (adults), Japanese Beetles (adults), Mole Crickets, Sod Webworms and Ticks. Dilute in a sprayer 2 to 4 ounces of Essentria All Purpose Insect Concentrate per gallon of water and apply at the rate of 2 to 4 gallons per 1000 square feet or until area is thoroughly wet. Exceeding rates may create potential phytotoxicity of turf surfaces.
USE ONNON-BEARING TREES AND SHRUBS:
To control Mites, Scale Insects, Mealybugs, Aphids, Lace Bugs, Whiteflies, Tent Caterpillars, Bagworms and Beetles, dilute up to 1 to 6 ounces of Essentria All Purpose Insect Concentrate per gallon of water and apply using a compressed air sprayer or power sprayer until foliage is thoroughly wet. Maintain agitation. Exceeding rates may create potential phytotoxicity on plant surfaces. Dilute with enough water to obtain thorough coverage.

For high populations of insects or when treating species that are difficult to control, mix up to 2 gallon of concentrate in 55 gallons of water. When filling the tank, partially fill the system reservoir tank with water, add concentrate to tank, then add water to obtain desired dilution. System nozzles should deliver fine particle size droplets (aerosol or mist). Nozzles should be rated for a delivery rate not to exceed 1.25 fluid ounces of solution per minute, with one nozzle covering 100 square feet. Set system timer to operate in accordance with equipment directions. Automatic spraying systems must not be designed and programmed to release pesticides where feed is directly exposed to spray mist. Personnel should vacate containment treatment areas while treatment is in progress. Treated areas should be thoroughly ventilated prior to re-entry by personnel.
AGRICULTURE APPLICATION RATES:
For aerial applications use a minimum of 15 gallons of spray volume per acre. Complete coverage of foliage is essential to achieve control. The foliage should be completely WET, but avoid runoff. The use of a spreader and/or penetrant adjuvant improves product performance. Spray when pests first appear. Repeat application every 7-21 days.
PESTS CONTROLLED THROUGH DRIP IRRIGATION SYSTEMS (including but not limited to):
Cutworms, Wireworms, Root Maggots, Symphylans, and Crickets.
CROPS TREATED BY DRIP IRRIGATION (including but not limited to):
Beets, Brussel Sprouts, Cabbage, Chinese Broccoli, Broccoli, Chinese Cabbage, Chinese Mustard, Cauliflower, Collard, Endive, Garlic, Ginseng, Kale, Melons (Cantaloupes, Casabas, Honeydew, Muskmelons, Persians, and Watermelons), Onions (bulb and green), Parsnips, Potatoes, Sweet Potatoes, Spinach, Strawberries, Sugar Beets, Sweet Corn, Tomatoes. Apply AP Insecticide through the drip irrigation systems at a rate of 2 pints per acre of plant bed as a preventative treatment or when pest infestation is low to moderate and 4 pints per acre of plant bed when pest infestation is high. Apply 2 to 3 applications of AP Insecticide over a 7 to 14 day schedule. Refer to local extension recommendations for additional information regarding pest populations and thresholds. AP Insecticide can be applied at any time during the crop cycle, from the time of planting to the harvest and there are no restrictions on the number of applications per season. For drip irrigation systems, set the emitter spacing and the line pressure to give the best bed coverage and reduce loss of chemigation products through leaching.
Purchased as an alternative to some of the standard chemical mosquito misting formulas, since we have a baby on the way and another crawling all over the place. I didn't want them ingesting anything brought into the house on the floor. This oil formula is awful. Citronella candles work better. We've been running it through our mister 6x a day including peak mosquito hours, diluted 1:1 with water. We've seen more mosquitoes in the last month since we've tried it than we have all summer. Also, typically the other chemicals we've use deter or kill other critters--we continue to see tons of spiders, ants, roaches etc. I wouldn't buy again and wouldn't recommend even wasting money to try it because of its alternative label.
Thank you for your comments! The rate to use Essentria All Purpose in an automatic misting system would be 0.5 to 3 oz per gallon of water, or 27.5 to 165 oz per 55 gal tank. This should remain agitated with the addition of a surfactant and is stable up to one month. We would recommend the IC3 formulation for you, which is still very safe around people and pets, but which will have longer residual. Be sure to follow the label directions for use in your equipment:
How is Essentria All Purpose Insecticide different from the IC3?
What is the residual of the all purpose insecticide and the IC3?
Essentria All Purpose Insecticide is a newer formulation that does not contain the Geraniol and has an expanded product label that includes many agricultural applications. The residual of the Essentria IC3 will range from about 2-6 weeks, depending on weathering like rain and direct sunlight. Residual will be slightly less for the All Purpose. For general home applications we would recommend using the Essentria IC3.
