    Worked As Expected!

    By Sean on 11/08/2011

    Verified Purchase

    Trying to do my part to save the planet & rid my house of shield bugs, I opted for the 'greener' insecticide option. Extremely easy to mix & apply, & makes the whole house perimeter smell great! The initial application seemed to work its magic. However, just a few days later, I had a few more shield bugs, though not as many as before. This could be due to the weather getting colder. I'll try a much less diluted mixture if I need to apply again in the future. (Used 4oz of IC3 per gallon of water).

    Smelly

    By Joshua on 06/04/2012

    Verified Purchase

    As a chemist I like using green products around my family, but after using this product I've heard nothing but complaints from my wife and mother-in-law about the smell. I think the smell is great, and it usually weakens in about a day, but I'm going to have to find a different product for treating the indoors, just to avoid their complaints. This is a great product, but if you live with someone with a sensitive nose don't use this one.

    Follow-up of Robert rant

    By Anonymous on 07/05/2013

    Planning to try this product and saw Roberts review after reading the label. Contrary to his review, the label does say that the product 'controls' spiders, however, I reluctantly have to agree that most insecticides residuals do not control spiders. Most insecticides have to be directly applied to a spider to be effective. As I understand this is true even for the non-green chemicals. So, if applied with a fogger or directly sprayed on spider, it may work. But applied as a barrier or residual insecticide, spiders will probably not be affected.

    Applied to our Boat dock

    By John on 08/22/2020

    I like the product as it is Eco friendly ... for this 5 stars. I applied at a rate of 5 oz. per gallon, in my battery powered back pack sprayer, but that rate didn't seem to knock down the spiders. Although I do understand that spiders most likely won't be affected by this product but, their food sources are the targets. With no food, spiders will move to other locations. Another target "critter" on our dock is something that we are unable to identify. This "critter" bites my wife just like chiggers. No one else is pestered by these "critters". Our boat dock has a concrete tile surface so, I'm skeptical whether the "critters" are chiggers. Anyway, the product has not put these "critters" to rest. I intend to continue using this product, next application will be at a higher rate per gallon. Although, will be approaching the cost of professional applicators by doing so.

    Essentria

    By Jordan on 07/07/2018

    I started using this product for exterior perimeter insect control applications this year. Our customers loved the idea, I just wished I would have known to go at the highest labeled rate, and to use a surfactant.

    Not for this

    By Andrew on 07/08/2022

    Does not work on lantern flies... Use rubbing alcohol it's cheaper too.
