Nature’s Way is proud to use botanical-based EcoSMART® and Essentria® as part of our Green Approach to pest control.
How Botanical-Based Pest Control Products Work
Like trees and plants, which use their own essential oils to protect against insects, botanical-based EcoSMART and Essentria pest control products rely on these same natural defenses to eliminate and control pests in your home.
Using steam, the essential oils are extracted from the plant and combined in a proprietary blend that targets the insect’s octopamine receptors, a specific part of the nervous system. Once the octopamine receptors come in contact with the essential oil compound, the insect can no longer survive.
Why Green Pest Control is a Better Choice
Vertebrates, such as birds, fish, dogs and people, don’t have octopamine receptors, which means they are not effected by these essential oil blends. In fact, botanical-based green pest control products deliver an unprecedented margin of safety, allowing for indoor use around children, pets and even food preparation areas.
Furthermore, the product performance is comparable to conventional pest control. Backed by years of scientific research, the unique technology in these botanical-based green pest control products has proven to be extremely effective against a broad spectrum of pests with no known pest resistance issues.
