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.
Our 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. Nature’s Guide products such as CedarCide granules and Garlic Oil work well and are completely safe around people and pets. Cedar 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 controls. 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.
