2 Natural Pesticides That Work Essentria IC3 vs EcoVia EC.
When it comes to effective mosquito and ornamental pest control its hard to find natural pesticides that actually work.
I’m going to be discussing Essentria IC3 vs EcoVia EC
Both of these products are considered natural and are FIFRA 25(b) exempt products.
NOP (National Organic Program)
Eco Via EC
Thyme Oil – 20.0%
2-Phenethyl Propionate – 14.0%
Rosemary Oil – 8.0%
Rosemary Oil (10.0%)
Geraniol 600 (5.0%)
Peppermint Oil (2.0%)
Geraniol is a Standardized Chemical Allergen.
Emulsification: Polyglyceryl Oleate
The EcoVia EC dilutes completely
The Esentria IC3 does not no emulsify well I use a dish soap made by a local supermarket chain called Publix as an emulsifier it also helps break up the honeydwew and sootymold.
The Esentria IC3 has a strong wintergreen scent
The Ecovia EC has a more floral scent
Secret to using these 2 products is frequent application to break the pest life cycle 1 Application every 5 to 7 days until control.
