The Ortho Home Defense insecticide with essential oils is safe (safe to use near children and pets when used according to instructions) and strong. Citrus oil extracts are environmentally friendly and pollinator friendly and are safe to use with people and pets. But they are deadly to ants, cockroaches, bed bugs, fleas, cuttlefish, and many other insects. You can safely spray the perimeter of your house or garden with citrus extract products to eliminate these insects.
Diatomaceous earth (DE) is harmless to dogs and humans, but deadly to many insect pests. Food-grade DE, which is the type used in your garden, is safe enough to eat. In fact, you can rub it on your dog's coat to keep fleas and ticks away. In the yard, DE helps eliminate slugs, ants, flies, beetles and other pests, but you can spray it directly on plants.
Insects don't create resistance, because ED works by dehydrating insects. It is composed of ancient fossilized shellfish remains. A foaming spray can be sprayed directly onto the mattress, keeping bed bugs out and ensuring a peaceful night's rest. The spray is safe for pets and young children, but both should be kept out of the room during the initial spraying.
Let the brew sit for a couple of hours before reopening the room.
