Organic Pest Control Basics
The term organic or green means that the service offered is based upon non chemical methods and the use of pesticides that are naturally occurring. According to this perspective, to provide a truly green pest control service, only the products that are derived from earth based materials like desiccant ducts, borates, as well as diatomaceous earth as well as silica, pesticides and botanical insecticides that are classified in category 25b by the EPA could be used. The EPA doesn’t regulate these products, which include essential oils from certain plants.
These EPA exempt products may be effective at killing pests on contact but they have their own set of limitations and might not get rid of pest problems because they have almost no residual effect on pests.
Some popular essential oils for pest control are as follows:
- Peppermit, spearmint, and eucalyptus
- Organo, thyme, or sage
- Lemon, orange
- Vanilla extract,
- Litsea cubeba
- Tea tree oil
