PCO Choice Outside and Inside Structures
OUTSIDE TREATMENT RECOMMENDATION
Southwestern Cedar Oil formulates a product called PCO Choice. It is a concentrate composed of 85% modified cedar oil and 15% Ethyl Lactate. Cedar oil is a natural essential oil that provides a pheromone interruption agent that impairs the insects mental capacity (fries their brain). When combined with Ethyl Lactate, a corn oil by-product, it becomes a bio solvent which is instrumental in triggering instant erosion and dehydration of the insects exoskeleton and subsequently, the egg and larvae. For every insect you see there are 99 more in egg and larvae stage. Exposure to a water solution spiked with cedar oil and ethyl lactate will destroy the egg and larvae stage, breaking the egg layer cycle and eliminating the next generation of insects. PCO Choice in combination with large amounts of water sprayed from a hose end applicator that is supplied with the product will be instrumental in the demise of numerous non beneficial insects including but not limited to fleas, ticks, mites, mosquito's, scorpions, beetles, mole crickets, grubs, chinch bugs and many others. It has no effect on beneficial and pollinator insects such as butterflies or bee's which are sight driven. It will not hurt any of the amphibians or lizard family but will deter snakes from the treated areas. I suggest you wash down the side of your structures working from the building outward. The first application is the most important and the objective is to make sure a liberal soak is accomplished to all areas including but not limited to the flower beds, shrubbery, grass and concrete areas and any standing water. Pour 4 ounces of the PCO concentrate into the cup of the hose end applicator provided with the product (cup has legend). Fill to the 26 Ounce line with tap water. Attach to the water hose, turn the lever to on and initiate spraying. Each cup of solution will dilute 20 gallons of water spray. When the cup is empty, repeat as often as necessary to complete the initial soaking. This treatment is very inexpensive and will resolve many other insect issues such as aphids and scale on plants, powdery mildew and all of the normal lawn fungal problems grassy areas experience. PCO Choice loves water so periodic rains will enhance it's performance. Follow up applications should be conducted as required, depending on the local insect population your endeavor encompasses. If you follow this protocol, you can say goodbye to the fleas and any other pests you may have. And remember, an insect never travels more than 150 foot from where it was hatched. Having said that, treatment of your sacred area and a 150 foot distance from the area will make a off limits area to pests that you can now enjoy. For large mounted truck sprayers, apply 64 ounces of PCO to 100 gallons of water. It is important to provide constant agitation while spraying. Cedar will not separate from water rapidly.
INSIDE TREATMENT RECOMMENDATION
Using a hand held Atomizer (sprayer), preferably air compression in design, spray a mist of PCO Choice 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 promoting death 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 a compression type sprayer dispersing a fine mist of solution spray each and every square inch of horizontal floor surface 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 backward 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 cupboard or vanity areas with a light spray.
PCO Choice is a contact killer as well as a pheromone interruption agent. It is also a penetrant and will erode the insect egg and larvae by promoting de-hydration.
The use of approximately 2 ounces of solution is satisfactory to treat a 1000 square foot room. Spray liberally to make sure all cracks and crevices are covered. Use 2 Ounces of PCO Choice per gallon of water. The use of warm or hot water when mixing the product is always a prudent formulation technique.
