While pretty effective, conventional insecticides have drawbacks including the eventual elimination of “good” bugs in your landscape which makes organic insect control products a more viable and earth-friendly choice.
A mild winter and wet Spring may prove to once again be a bad one for mosquitos, fleas and ticks– And, due to the chemicals in conventional insecticides, care must be taken to make sure humans and animals don’t receive a toxic reaction from their application.
Russell Feed & Supply has a large selection of highly effective organic insecticides to use in your frequently visited outdoor spaces. Products such as CedarCide Granules, Garlic Oil and Diatomaceous Earth work well and are completely safe around people and pets. Nature’s Guide CedarCide granules will repel mosquitoes from the area with a natural cedar aroma. Garlic is one of the most powerful and effective of all plant-based insect repellents and controllers. Nature’s Guide uses garlic oil, a little citric acid, and a tiny bit of potassium sorbate to keep it fresh. The odor can be a little strong at first then quickly fades for humans but remains strong enough to keep bugs away for a long time. Russell Feed carries Perma-Guard Fossil Shell Flour or Diatomaceous Earth which is food grade quality, safe for indoor and outdoor use and controls fleas, chinch bugs, fire ants and other crawling bugs.
