    How Cedarwood Oil Kills Bugs

    In case our name didn’t give it away, cedarwood oil is the driving force behind our pest control products here at Cedarcide. So naturally, the obvious question is: How does it work? How does cedarwood oil (aka cedar oil) kill bugs? While the answer can get a bit technical, there are 6 basic ways cedarwood oil works to kill and repel pests like fleas, ticks, mosquitoes, ants, mites and more. Here’s a simple outline of each one.

    Dehydration

    Most bugs are extremely sensitive to moisture loss, which is bad news for bugs that come into contact with cedarwood oil. Cedarwood oil is extremely effective at leaching moisture from insects and other bugs, leaving them dried out and eventually dead.

    It Disrupts Their Pheromones

    Pheromones are chemicals that many bugs use for navigation, mating, searching for food, as well as to regulate bodily functions. Cedarwood oil disrupts these pheromones which not only disorients the insects but interferes with their fundamental bodily processes like breathing. The disorientation helps repel insects and other bugs, the interference with their bodily mechanisms kills them.

    It Dissolves Them

    Insects in earlier life stages—eggs, larvae, pupae—are extremely vulnerable, so vulnerable in fact that cedarwood oil can dissolve them on contact. In adult insects, arachnids and other bugs, cedarwood oil helps dissolve their exoskeleton. This allows the essential oil to penetrate their shell, hastening the oil’s pest control effects.

    Emulsification

    Emulsification, or the breakdown of fat particles, is another way that cedarwood oil works to control bugs. Like many organisms, bugs require fat to live. By helping disintegrate this fat into smaller, more fluid parts, cedarwood oil attacks bugs from the inside out.

    Suffocation

    As mentioned above, cedarwood oil can interfere with bugs' capacity to breathe. Unlike mammals, bugs breathe through openings located on the surface of their bodies. When faced with the lethal effects of cedarwood oil, bugs attempt to limit their exposure by closing these openings, which prevents them from breathing. In other words, the bugs suffocate themselves.

    It Messes With Their Body Chemistry

    Like most every living thing, bugs must maintain a specific chemical balance to stay alive. Any drastic changes in this balance can have deadly results. Cedarwood oil neutralizes the acidity within bugs’ bodies, effectively throwing this balance out of whack. As a result they cannot properly function, and shortly die.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    How do I use Cedarcide Original on my cat?

    Because cats like to lick their fur, and because they’re extremely sensitive to scents, it’s best to test for possible sensitivity with a light initial application. While Cedarcide Original is non-toxic, on rare occasions smaller cats and kittens have found the natural cedar scent of Cedarcide Original too strong for their liking.

    If like most individuals, your cat takes no issue with Cedarcide Original, apply the formula by lightly misting your hands and massaging the spray into their coat. Be sure to apply Cedarcide Original all over—including armpits, in between toes, and around the ears and tail.

    What do your products smell like?

    Our products are toxin-free, so don't worry—there’s no nasty chemical odors. As you might have guessed from our brand name, nearly all our products have a natural cedar oil smell.

    Can I fog with your products?

    Of course! Fogging is often the best option when facing serious pest control issues. We recently improved our Cedarcide Original formula to increase its efficacy, which means it’s now slightly more dense. Because of this change, we advise using only a half gallon of Cedarcide Original when fogging, as opposed to the previous suggestion of just under a gallon. With the increased efficacy and lasting power, you can also expect a little more cleanup compared to the previous formula.

    CAUTION - Natural Enzymes.UK.-Does not sell fogging machines to the public from the website or take any responsibility of the miss use of Cedarcide when used in a fogger purchased from other outlets.

    Always follow the foggers insuctions and never use near open flames. Cedarcide is an oil and it is flammable.

    Where are your products made?

    All of Cedarcide products are handcrafted and American made in Lewisville, TX.

    What’s the difference between Cedarcide Original and Tickshield?

    Both products are naturally sourced insecticides & repellents designed for personal, pet and home use. Tickshield is simply an extra strength version of Cedarcide Original.

    We use highly refined Texas cedarwood oil. Our cedarwood oil never contains phenols or phenolic compouds.

    Can I use Cedarcide products on my small animal, birds or reptiles?

    Our products are not designed for pets smaller than cats, so we advise against using them on such animals. Cedarwood oil, the core ingredient in most of our products, can be harmful to birds and reptiles, so please do not use Cedarcide products for this application

    10 Ways Pesticides Are Harming Your Pets

    Vomiting & Diarrhea

    In addition to slow heart rates, respiratory failure and even death, organophosphates—some of the most toxic chemicals used in agriculture—also cause intense abdominal pain, vomiting, diarrhea and other gastrointestinal distress in animals. Carbamates, another common pesticide, are known to cause dizziness, convulsions, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea, too; as are phenoxy and benzoic acid herbicides (like 2,4-D), and pyrethroids (like Permethrin).

    Aggression

    It turns out your pets’ physical health isn’t the only thing you have to worry about. A study published by Harvard Medical School linked Organophosphates and carbamates—two common lawn & garden pesticides—with aggressive behavior in both cats and humans.

    Depression

    Pyrethroids—which include common chemicals like Permethrin and Resmethrin—is another toxin that can mess with your cat or dog’s mental well-being. Not only are these chemicals possible carcinogens, they can also alter your pet’s mood and state of mind. Symptoms of poisoning include nervous system damage, hyperexcitability, tremors and even depression!

    Blindness

    One of the most common but also most toxic pesticides is snail bait. Unfortunately, this poison is also very attractive to mammals, like dogs and cats. Snail bait’s active ingredient, metaldehyde, causes seizures, excess salivation and perhaps most frightening of all, blindness. eizures

    The above mentioned Pyrethroids, which are in the majority of household insecticides, are known to alter pets’ mental health. But, sadly, they can also cause muscle tremors, ataxia, anorexia and seizures—which can in turn lead to death. Organochlorines, which constitute a large percentage of common pesticides, also cause loss of bodily control and seizures. In severe poisoning, these seizures are often uncontrollable, leading to respiratory failure and eventually death in both cats and dogs.

    Malignant Lymphoma

    Sadly, various forms of cancer are not uncommon in animals exposed to pesticides—which, unfortunately, includes most pets in the U.S. One study conducted by the Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University found that consistent exposure to chemicals commonly used by professional lawn care companies elevated the risk of fatal canine malignant lymphoma by nearly 70%.

    Bladder Cancer

    It’s not just Lymphoma you have to worry about. In a study published by the journal Science of the Total Environment it was found that dogs exposed to lawns treated with herbicides (like Roundup, for example) experience a significantly higher chance of contracting bladder cancer. Studies found the chemicals that help cause this extremely painful type of cancer are detectable in both treated and untreated lawns. Which means even if you don’t personally treat your own yard with pesticides, your pets are still likely receiving exposure blown in from other areas, like nearby parks or neighbors' yards.

    Liver Cancer

    A particularly nasty and quite common inorganic pesticide, Allethrin, has been linked with increased risk of liver cancer in dogs. A synthetic copy of a naturally occurring botanical insecticide derived from chrysanthemum flowers, Allerthrin is used in many yards throughout America to kill and prevent flies, mosquitoes and other flying insects.

    Birth Defects

    Your fur babies aren’t the only ones facing harm due to pesticide exposure—their babies are, too. The Environmental Working Group (or, the EWG) found that dogs commonly test positive for phthalates at levels up to 5 times that of the average human. This chemical compound found in plastics, perfumes, food containers, makeup and pesticides is believed to cause, among other issues, birth defects in newly born puppies and kittens.

    Reproductive Problems

    The same EWG report cited above linked phthalates not just to birth defects in pets, but to all kinds of reproductive issues also—a side effect perhaps more cruel than even death.
