The following data will instruct you on how best to use your purchase of Cedar Oil Blend solution for control of Fleas, Ticks, Mites, Lice, Bed Bugs, Chiggers, Silverfish, Roaches, Ants, Carpet Beetles, Springtails, Scorpions, Spiders, Mosquitoes, Flies and a array of other non beneficial insects.  Cedar Oil Blend can be used on any surface area including skin, hair, cloth or leather furniture, wood, hardwood floors, tile and linoleum floors, clothing, mattress and box springs, carpet, kitchen counters and inside cupboards and pantry areas. It also makes a excellent furniture polish. Cedar Oil Blend is formulated with food grade EPA and FDA approved compounds that are safe to use on anything except plant life. It will not stain or attract dirt. Feel free to use it liberally as a liquid, mist, or with a NON THERMAL ULV fogger, depending on your objective.  Rest assured, you can not use to much solution.  The following will suggest a proper protocol for application of Cedar Oil Blend for one or more of the animal health or insect control endeavors you may be contemplating. Cedar Oil Blend is a READY TO USE solution and cannot be diluted.


Apply Cedar Oil Blend on the floor, mop boards or floor molding, rugs, carpet, mattress and box spring, bed clothing, furniture and anywhere else those parasites or other insects might be. It will not stain or attract dirt.  I suggest you use a tank type compression sprayer (included in the Cedar Oil Blend KIT). The commercial type sprayer will make it easier to get in the difficult places such as under furniture, beds etc. It will also provide a consistent delivery of the solution often difficult to do when using a trigger sprayer. Remember, you want to treat all areas as this product is considered a CONTACT KILLER and must either touch the insect or be inhaled by the pest to incur death. The odor of Cedar Oil Blend is not offensive but somewhat overwhelming for a hour or two when total home treatments are conducted.  Given a short amount of time, the atmosphere will evolve into a refreshing clear cedar closet aroma. Wait several days after treatment before cleaning or vacuuming the floor areas. This will give the solution a opportunity to erode and dehydrate the insect egg and larvae in the treated area. Recommended application is 1 gallon per 1000 square foot of horizontal treatment area. The aroma of the cedar oil will impair the mental capacities of any "New Hatch"  that survives the treatment, and, subsequent death will incur usually within 72 hours or less. It is imperative that the total structure be treated to insure there is no reoccurrence of the pest.  Parasites such as Fleas will often move from one area to another, such as from basements to other levels. Walking the treated area after treatment wearing white socks will usually expose any areas harboring fleas, as the flea will be attracted to white.  Areas where this occurs should be re-treated immediately to eliminate the egg layer cycle and eliminate the next generation of flea. To get rid of ants, take one to two ounces of the Cedar Oil Blend and pour it down the nesting hole. You will see results in approximately one hour. If ants persist, pour an additional 1-2 ounces into the nesting hole. This is to insure that the queen ant is dead. To rid your gardens and plant beds of insects and flying bugs, spray the Cedar Oil Blend on the soil. Do not spray the Cedar Oil Blend on your plants, because the cedar oil may turn your plants yellow.


Cedar Oil Blend is considered a contact killer.  The objective is to apply a mist or spray directly on the flea or in the alternative, close enough to him that he can breathe the mist from the sprayer. All insects breathe through their body and when their many breathing pores are exposed to the solution, it triggers a suicide response by commanding the closure of the arthropods breathing pores.  Insects must have the available heat found in air to survive, or their internal organs immediately cease to function creating instant death. Use the product liberally the first time making the animal wet with the solution.  You will observe fleas falling from the animal at once.  Take a moment and make sure the feet, leg pits, groin, belly, neck, tail and rectum are treated well.  Cedar Oil is a anti-bacterial and will promote the healing of any sore or dry flaky spots on the Pet often referred to as flea dermatitis.  It will also moisten the animals skin with cedar oil, eliminating the dry skin often caused naturally or by bathing the animal. Feel free to use as much Cedar Oil Blend on the animal as you wish. You cannot overdo the treatment. You will find that this process will stimulate the animals hair making it healthy and attractive. As with any repellent, human or animal, repeat applications depend on exposure to insects.  Keep your Pets feet, legs and underbelly treated with a spray prior to entry into flea infested areas.  This will help eliminate the fleas that insist on hitching a ride on the animal and returning to your home.  Repeated liberal applications on a daily basis to HOT SPOTS or MANGE areas will trigger the mite demise and hair growth will resume immediately. A application into the ear canal with a subsequent external ear massage will destroy any ear mites or chronic fungal organism issues the animal has in that part of its body.


Using the hand held compression sprayer, discharge a mist of Cedar Oil Blend SOLUTION on the horizontal and vertical surface of the linen stripped mattress, box spring and headboard of the beds.  Using the same procedure, spray the furniture in the room with the same type mist, the objective being that of triggering a INSTANT KILL to the bed bugs, mites and fleas at large.  Roll back any seams or material tucks of the mattress or box spring and liberally treat those areas with additional spray. Remove the cushions from any furniture and treat the bottom sides and the cushions wells. Chairs with cloth cushions should be treated on the bottom side as well as the top. Using the compression sprayer that is dispersing a fine mist of Cedar Oil Blend, treat each and every square inch of horizontal floor surface area including but not limited to the carpet, tile and wood floor areas.  Spray the mop boards first and any drapes and curtains  to at least 24 inches from the floor. Work backwards from the farthest point of the room making sure a liberal amount of the solution is being applied to all areas.  It is imperative that no area be left untreated. Spray the legs of all furniture and any lamp posts or other vertical supports.  Treat any and all dresser or vanity areas with a light spray.  Remember, Bed Bugs are nocturnal and are difficult to find in the light.  It is extremely important to treat the box spring cavity located on the bottom of the bed.  Remove the fine mesh cob web netting to gain access to the spring area.  Treat this area liberally as it is often the main hiding place for bed bugs.

Testing conducted by Rutgers University

Monday August 17 2009 @ 01:16 PM
Cedar Oil is advertised as a safe, effective insecticide for controlling a variety of public health pests including Bed Bugs. Bed Bug Central and Rutgers University have partnered to put a variety of Bed Bug products to the test. Cedar oil is the first in the series. “Cedar Oil Blend” Cedar oil was chosen due to the claims being made by the manufacture, to the public for use in controlling bed bugs.

Bed Bug Central funded Rutgers University’s, Dr. Changlu Wang to conduct research that examined the effectiveness of “Cedar Oil Blend” cedar oil. The research examined the effectiveness of the cedar oil product on both bugs and eggs that were treated directly with the product as well as the residual effectiveness of the product once dry. This is a brief summary of the research findings.

The product tested was, “Cedar Oil Blend” cedar oil. “Cedar Oil Blend” is a category 25b EPA exempt product that contains 10% cedar oil and 90% latex. The bed bugs used in this research were from a field collected strain.

Direct Spray on Bed Bugs and Eggs.

The direct spray of “Cedar Oil Blend” caused immediate immobilization of the bed bug nymphs, followed by 100% mortality within 1 minute of the topical application. In addition to being 100% effective on bugs directly treated with the product, it also proved to be effective against eggs that were directly treated. None of the 61 treated eggs hatched after 17 days compared to 75% egg hatch in a non-treated control group

The Results showed that “Cedar Oil Blend” is highly effective against bed bugs including eggs when applied directly.

Additional Notes of Interest

We were quite surprised with the findings of this study, particularly when it came to the eggs. This prompted some additional investigation into the effectiveness of the two constituent materials, cedar oil (10%) and latex (90%). No mortality was observed when either generic cedar oil or latex were directly applied to bed bugs. This clearly raises some interesting questions regarding the effectiveness of the “Cedar Oil Blend” cedar oil product. The fact that the each of the constituent ingredients are ineffective when tested alone suggests that there is something unique about the type of cedar oil or latex used by the manufacturer or that there is something about the formulation process that gives the “Cedar Oil Blend” product it’s insecticidal activity.

Rick Cooper noted that Bedlam is one of the only products to have ovicidal effects for pests. “Cedar Oil Blend” did show promising signs that it too, has this effectiveness on bed bugs. More research is needed to confirm this, but ultimately we found this very surprising and unexpected
