Essentria IC3 is one of our natural bug sprays and the most updated formulation of the EcoExempt IC2 product. Essentria IC3 was improved by adding the adjuvant in the concentrate, as well as a fragrance modifier was added to minimize any odors. Essentria IC3 is a flexible, broad-spectrum EPA FIFRA 25(b) exempt all natural product. This means it is a very safe insecticide for use around your family and pets, but still very effective. One of the best features of Essentria IC3 is that it has no aquatic toxicity. This means you can apply near or over water for spiders, mosquitoes and other water dwelling pests with no worries about harming aquatic life.

How Essentria IC3 Insecticide Concentrate Works
Essentria IC3 is an insecticide emulsifiable concentrate that kills insects on contact. The botanical active ingredients include rosemary oil, peppermint oil, and geraniol (found in many essential oils). These all-natural ingredients act as octopamine blockers on target pests, disrupting the neurotransmitter function in target insects and causing a breakdown in the insects’ central nervous system. Because mammals, birds, and fish do not have receptors for octopamine, botanical oils are very safe to use in a variety of situations without adverse effects. Essentria IC3 Insecticide Concentrate will kill insects that are either contacted with direct spray or with the residual left after the application has dried.
Crawling and Flying Insect Pests, Turf and Ornamental Pests, Livestock Pests; ants, aphids, bed bugs, cockroaches, flies, spiders, ticks, wasps
PESTS CONTROLLED WITH ESSENTRIA IC3 INSECTICIDE CONCENTRATE:
Ants, Aphids, Armyworms, Bagworms, Bed Bugs, Bees, Beetles, Billbugs, Boxelder Bugs, Cadelles, Centipedes, Chinch bugs, Chiggers, Cigarette Beetles, Cockroaches, Confused Flour Beetles, Crickets, Cutworms, Dark Mealworms, Dried Fruit Beetles, Drugstore Beetles, Earwigs, Fire Ants, Firebrats, Fleas, Fowl Mites, Fruit Flies, Grain Mites, Grasshoppers, Ground Beetles, Horn Flies, House Flies, Hyperodes weevils (adults), Japanese beetles (adults), Lace bugs, Mealybugs, Millipedes, Mites, Mole crickets, Moths, Nuisance Beetles (such as lady beetles), Pillbugs, Red Flour Beetles, Rice Weevils, Saw-toothed Grain Beetles, Scale insects, Silverfish, Sod webworms, Sowbugs, Spider Beetles, Stable Flies, Tent caterpillars, Ticks, Whiteflies, Yellow Mealworms; Bedbugs, Darkling beetles (lesser meal worms), Flies (Deer, Face, House), Gnats, Lice, Litter beetles, Maggots (fly larvae), Mites, Mosquitoes, Poultry lice, Spiders, Stable lice, Ticks, Wasps
Essentria IC3 can be used as a substitute for many synthetic insecticides in sensitive situations when a natural, organic, or extremely gentle product is desired. Essentria IC3 can be used indoors, outdoors, for fogging, turf or ornamental applications, on approved animals, and in mosquito misting applications. A new fragrance modifier has been added to Essentria IC3 to dampen the odor of the botanical ingredients. Essentria IC3 Insecticide Concentrate now also includes the adjuvant, so a separate product does not need to be added when mixing. Because Essentria IC3 is a FIFRA 25(b) minimum risk pesticide, it does not require a re-entry period after applications. This means IC3 can be used in areas with a lot of human activity, such as schools, day care facilities, and commercial establishments.
Because of the mode of action on target pests, Essentria IC3 Insecticide Concentrate also can be used near or over open water without concern of effects on aquatic life. This is especially useful for mosquito applications near water and treatments around boat docks and marinas.
Essentria IC3 Insecticide Concentrate Application Instructions
Always shake well before using. Mix 0.5 to 10 ounces of IC3 Insecticide Concentrate per gallon of water or oil just before application. Dilution rate varies according to specific use. In general, use lower rates for prevention and maintenance, and use higher rates for clean-out or existing infestations. Do not store mixtures overnight. See below for more details. Always read the product label completely before use.
A quart (32 oz.) bottle of Essentria IC3 Insecticide Concentrate yields 3 to 32 gallons of finished solution. A gallon (128 oz.) bottle yields 12 to 128 gallons of finished solution.

READ the label.
By Robert in Texas on 03/10/2013
ok folks, if you're going to buy a product and not take a little effort, don't buy it. This product is not rated for spiders. This product will not kill spiders. no where on the label does it say it will kill spiders. NO RESIDUAL SPRAY KILLS SPIDERS AS THEY DON'T GROOM THEMSELVES. Buying a product that doesnt kill spiders, then calling the product useless because it doesnt kill spiders, makes no sense at all. ALSO... if you buy a product that says 3/1 4/1 and you use it 10/1.. you have no right to complain that it doesn't work. Roaches are one of the hardest things to get rid of because they are a filth pest, and once they get into the walls and begin to breed, you'll need more than a little spray to get rid of them. Also mixing 10/1 is against the instructions, and is the reason we can't have nice things. read the label before you buy and this is a great product.

By Dominic in ELKHART on 05/15/2013
Without sounding like a liberal nut job.... organic compounds like Essentria work very well, if you know your infestation and where to apply the treatment. Along with proper sanitation and insect monitor usage. Fact: According to the EPA 5 billion lbs. of pesticides are applied annually to US lawns & homes. Fact: Over 98% of sprayed insecticides reach a destination other than their targeted species. Fact: According to the EPA, 95% of the pesticides routinely used on residential lawns are carcinogens. Fact: A recent study found that 109 out of 110 children had pesticides in their urine. -Safe & Sound Pest Control Elkhart, IN.

Works well for mosquito and no-see-um control
By No in Virginia Beach, VA on 05/08/2012
We diluted it 4:1 and added it to a Halloween fogger and placed it outside to lightly fog the yard. It has been the best thing we have used. We live near a lake and have a horrible mosquito problem...until now! It even has a great non-offensive smell too!

Essentria IC3 Works Great!
By Nagy in Stuarts Draft on 12/12/2013
I own Nagy Pest Control located in Virginia and have been using this products (IC2 & IC3) for 3 years now. Works great on all insects and safe to be used around children, pest, water and our environment. I often mix 1 ounce per gallon for interior treatments and 3-6 ounces per water for exterior treatments. So far, I can see this products lasting anywhere from 30 to 60 days depending on heat and rain conditions. This product also repels rodents because of the peppermint oil smell that they hate to be around. Kills insects and repels rodents..ALL IN ONE!

New Weapon to Add to My Bed Bug Arsenal
By Rodrick in Brooklyn, NY on 11/28/2011
I use Essentria IC3 on hotel jobs for bed bugs at sites that were treated with traditional insecticides (Suspend, Phantom, Demon, etc) and I found it very effective. What I recommend is to mix Essentria IC3 with an IGR to add to the residual effect against bed bugs. This is a product I will continue to use.

Didn't work because I had horrible mosquito issue within a week of application
By Janina in Forestburgh, NY on 08/30/2017
One of our indoor cats broke through a screen and ducked under the crawl space. We unfortunately could not get him out from under there until the following day. By then he was infested by fleas, as we live in a rural area with lots of wildlife. Of course we took him to the vet and began treating immediately, but the house became infested with fleas, and we have carpeting throughout. The exterminator wanted $800.00 to exterminate and there was no guarantee it would eliminate the problem. So, I needed an indoor insecticide that was pet and human safe. I found one. It did not eliminate the problem, but we had exterminated a few times and we still get a few stragglers but a couple more treatments our problem will disappear. So, if you don't mind smelling licorice for a couple of hours this is the product to use. I highly recommend this product. It takes care of the problem and is much more affordable. It is your choice. You can pay an exterminator $2,400, or do it yourself and spend approximately $200 and a little bit of your time.

Deer Flies and Mosquitos - nice scent
By Dan in West Bend, Wi on 08/14/2017
I had an upcoming outdoor wedding which was early August and we had a lot of deer flies. I wanted to get something to help and this spray seemed to work very well. It has a really unusual smell and some people at the wedding commented on it as either like mint, rootbeer, or a vicks vapor rub. Not a strong smell at all so nothing overwhelming to be concerned about. I personally thought it smelled like rootbeer. Either way, seemed to work great for all bothersome insects

This product seems to work very well especially around ponds the only problem I have is every time I get a shipment of this it takes me an hour to Shake The Jug. I always have a thick layer on the bottom of the jugs and I'm assuming that's the part that sticks to everything you spray

Keeps bugs away naturally
By Cath in Center Sandwich, New Hampshire on 06/12/2017
I was so happy to hear about this product during an NHPR program on ticks. I ordered it the same day and it was delivered within a few days. Easy to apply and seems to be working. No chemical odor just powerful herb scents. We still do tick check everyday but have found only one (before it bit!) in the past couple of weeks. So far the product is great!

Love this stuff..but b careful!
By C in Greenville sc on 06/05/2017
Last year my exterminator raised his fee once again. I decided I can do this! I have 3 teenagers & 2 cats, so I loved the idea of natural. We live on the lake so we have the disgusting giant fly roaches/palmetto bugs as well as ants and mosquitoes. We haven't seen one creature for nearly a yr! Lol Lesson learned! This yr we have a flea problem. Since we never had this issue before I didn't know what to do so I headed to wally world & bought spray. Nothing! In fact it got worse. I read the IC3 in full & it mentioned fleas so used it properly..it helped..BUT..no product is a miracle worker with fleas..you HAVE to wash EVERYTHING, vacuum like a mad maid. I ended up moving all furniture & cleaned carpets & respraying & so far so good. I recommend adding the extra product for the eggs..I think that would have made my life a little easier. Good luck!

Works great against cockroaches!
By Liz in Merced, CA on 05/12/2017
Originally, I hired a pest control company to control a burgeoning roach population on my property. This is the pesticide they used. It worked excellently! When I decided to manage the problem on my own and discovered I could buy the concentrate myself, I was pretty thrilled. It smells quite pleasant, like Wintergreen and vanilla. It's very safe and doesn't hurt the environment. Doesn't get much better than this!

QWhich products will work for spiders on my boat dock?
How often would need to spray on this metal dock and wooden walkways ?
AThe most popular spider control product for use around water is Essentria IC3. This is the most popular choice because it effective for spiders, kills most other insects (eliminating the spiders prey which will help keep new spiders from moving back into the area) and it safe to use around water. Most other insecticides are prohibited near the water because of the risk of contaminating the water and harming aquatic animals. You will need to repeat the application once a month through the warm season.
