Essentria IC3 Insecticide Concentrate

Essentria IC3 is one of our natural bug sprays and the most updated formulation of the EcoExempt IC2 product. Essentria IC3 was improved by adding the adjuvant in the concentrate, as well as a fragrance modifier was added to minimize any odors. Essentria IC3 is a flexible, broad-spectrum EPA FIFRA 25(b) exempt all natural product. This means it is a very safe insecticide for use around your family and pets, but still very effective. One of the best features of Essentria IC3 is that it has no aquatic toxicity. This means you can apply near or over water for spiders, mosquitoes and other water dwelling pests with no worries about harming aquatic life.




How Essentria IC3 Insecticide Concentrate Works

Essentria IC3 is an insecticide emulsifiable concentrate that kills insects on contact. The botanical active ingredients include rosemary oil, peppermint oil, and geraniol (found in many essential oils). These all-natural ingredients act as octopamine blockers on target pests, disrupting the neurotransmitter function in target insects and causing a breakdown in the insects’ central nervous system. Because mammals, birds, and fish do not have receptors for octopamine, botanical oils are very safe to use in a variety of situations without adverse effects. Essentria IC3 Insecticide Concentrate will kill insects that are either contacted with direct spray or with the residual left after the application has dried.

Target Pests

Crawling and Flying Insect Pests, Turf and Ornamental Pests, Livestock Pests; ants, aphids, bed bugs, cockroaches, flies, spiders, ticks, wasps

PESTS CONTROLLED WITH ESSENTRIA IC3 INSECTICIDE CONCENTRATE:

Ants, Aphids, Armyworms, Bagworms, Bed Bugs, Bees, Beetles, Billbugs, Boxelder Bugs, Cadelles, Centipedes, Chinch bugs, Chiggers, Cigarette Beetles, Cockroaches, Confused Flour Beetles, Crickets, Cutworms, Dark Mealworms, Dried Fruit Beetles, Drugstore Beetles, Earwigs, Fire Ants, Firebrats, Fleas, Fowl Mites, Fruit Flies, Grain Mites, Grasshoppers, Ground Beetles, Horn Flies, House Flies, Hyperodes weevils (adults), Japanese beetles (adults), Lace bugs, Mealybugs, Millipedes, Mites, Mole crickets, Moths, Nuisance Beetles (such as lady beetles), Pillbugs, Red Flour Beetles, Rice Weevils, Saw-toothed Grain Beetles, Scale insects, Silverfish, Sod webworms, Sowbugs, Spider Beetles, Stable Flies, Tent caterpillars, Ticks, Whiteflies, Yellow Mealworms; Bedbugs, Darkling beetles (lesser meal worms), Flies (Deer, Face, House), Gnats, Lice, Litter beetles, Maggots (fly larvae), Mites, Mosquitoes, Poultry lice, Spiders, Stable lice, Ticks, Wasps

Target Uses

Essentria IC3 can be used as a substitute for many synthetic insecticides in sensitive situations when a natural, organic, or extremely gentle product is desired. Essentria IC3 can be used indoors, outdoors, for fogging, turf or ornamental applications, on approved animals, and in mosquito misting applications. A new fragrance modifier has been added to Essentria IC3 to dampen the odor of the botanical ingredients. Essentria IC3 Insecticide Concentrate now also includes the adjuvant, so a separate product does not need to be added when mixing. Because Essentria IC3 is a FIFRA 25(b) minimum risk pesticide, it does not require a re-entry period after applications. This means IC3 can be used in areas with a lot of human activity, such as schools, day care facilities, and commercial establishments.

Because of the mode of action on target pests, Essentria IC3 Insecticide Concentrate also can be used near or over open water without concern of effects on aquatic life. This is especially useful for mosquito applications near water and treatments around boat docks and marinas.

Essentria IC3 Insecticide Concentrate Application Instructions

Always shake well before using. Mix 0.5 to 10 ounces of IC3 Insecticide Concentrate per gallon of water or oil just before application. Dilution rate varies according to specific use. In general, use lower rates for prevention and maintenance, and use higher rates for clean-out or existing infestations. Do not store mixtures overnight. See below for more details. Always read the product label completely before use.

A quart (32 oz.) bottle of Essentria IC3 Insecticide Concentrate yields 3 to 32 gallons of finished solution. A gallon (128 oz.) bottle yields 12 to 128 gallons of finished solution.

Standard Application Dilution rates / Mixing Ratios:

  • 0.5 fl. oz. (15 mL) to 6.0 fl. oz. (180 mL)/gal. of water – general indoor applications; use lower rate for maintenance and higher rate for active infestations
  • 1 fl. oz. to 4 fl. oz./gal. of water – bed bug treatments
  • Fogging: Mix 4-10 fl. oz. with sufficient oil to equal 1 gallon of finished solution – Apply at a rate of 1-3 fl. oz. per 1,000 cubic feet
  • 1.0 fl. oz. (30 mL) to 8 fl. oz. (240 mL)/gal. of water – outdoor perimeter treatments, recreational areas; use lower rate for maintenance and higher rate for active infestations
  • Mosquito Misting Systems: 0.5-3 fl. oz./gal. of water – System must have agitation
  • 1-3 fl. oz. per gal. of mineral oil USP – most livestock uses except poultry

Indoors

General Pest Control: Mix 0.5 to 6 oz. per gallon of water. Thoroughly spray non-visible areas where insects are usually found with special attention to cracks, crevices, niches, dark corners, drains, and other harborage sites. To prevent potential discoloring, do not spray on visible areas (i.e. baseboards, door frames, walls) and wipe away excess.

Bedbugs: Thoroughly clean, vacuum, and air mattresses and springs prior to treatment. Mix at a rate of 1-4 oz. per gallon of water and apply as a spot treatment to cracks and crevices, around baseboards, floorboards, headboards, and walls. On mattresses and springs spot treat only areas that may harbor pests, concentrating on tufts, seams, folds, and creases. Repeat as necessary.

Fogging: Apply as a space spray through conventional fogging equipment misting systems (including mist sprayers and mist blowers), automated spray systems, and/or related application technologies. Use lower rates in most food facilities. Keep area closed for at least 15 minutes. Retreat if reinfestation occurs. See label for complete precautions and instructions.

Outdoors

Perimeter Treatments: Dilute 1-8 oz. per gallon of water and apply at a rate of 2 gallons per 1,000 square feet or until area is thoroughly wet. Also apply to a band of soil and vegetation 6-10 feet wide around and adjacent to buildings. Treat the building foundation to a height of 2-3 feet with sufficient water for coverage. Make special efforts to spray areas where pests congregate and around potential entry areas such as eaves, windows, doorways, porches, and around utility boxes. Repeat as necessary.

Mosquito Control: In pressurized sprayers, dilute 1-3 oz. per gallon of water. Treat harborage areas such as shrubbery and vegetation where mosquitoes/flies may rest. Shrubbery and vegetation around stagnant pools, marshy areas, ponds and shorelines may be treated. Repeat as necessary.

Around Boat Docks: Use 2-8 oz. per gallon of water and apply at a rate of 2 gallons per 1,000 square feet or until area is thoroughly wet.

Turf and Grass: Use 2-4 oz. per gallon of water and apply at a rate of 2-4 gallons per 1,000 square feet.

Premise Applications in Livestock Facilities: For a residual surface spray, dilute 3-6 oz. per gal. of water or mineral oil USP. Apply 1 gallon of dilution per 500-1,000 sq. ft. Thoroughly cover walls, ceilings or other areas where pests rest or congregate in dairy barns, horse barns, poultry houses, swine buildings, livestock sheds, and other farm buildings.

    5 of 5 stars  READ the label.
    By Robert in Texas on 03/10/2013

    ok folks, if you're going to buy a product and not take a little effort, don't buy it. This product is not rated for spiders. This product will not kill spiders. no where on the label does it say it will kill spiders. NO RESIDUAL SPRAY KILLS SPIDERS AS THEY DON'T GROOM THEMSELVES. Buying a product that doesnt kill spiders, then calling the product useless because it doesnt kill spiders, makes no sense at all. ALSO... if you buy a product that says 3/1 4/1 and you use it 10/1.. you have no right to complain that it doesn't work. Roaches are one of the hardest things to get rid of because they are a filth pest, and once they get into the walls and begin to breed, you'll need more than a little spray to get rid of them. Also mixing 10/1 is against the instructions, and is the reason we can't have nice things. read the label before you buy and this is a great product.

    By Dominic in ELKHART on 05/15/2013
    Verified Purchase

    Without sounding like a liberal nut job.... organic compounds like Essentria work very well, if you know your infestation and where to apply the treatment. Along with proper sanitation and insect monitor usage. Fact: According to the EPA 5 billion lbs. of pesticides are applied annually to US lawns & homes. Fact: Over 98% of sprayed insecticides reach a destination other than their targeted species. Fact: According to the EPA, 95% of the pesticides routinely used on residential lawns are carcinogens. Fact: A recent study found that 109 out of 110 children had pesticides in their urine. -Safe & Sound Pest Control Elkhart, IN.

    5 of 5 stars  Essentria IC3 Works Great!
    By Nagy in Stuarts Draft on 12/12/2013

    I own Nagy Pest Control located in Virginia and have been using this products (IC2 & IC3) for 3 years now. Works great on all insects and safe to be used around children, pest, water and our environment. I often mix 1 ounce per gallon for interior treatments and 3-6 ounces per water for exterior treatments. So far, I can see this products lasting anywhere from 30 to 60 days depending on heat and rain conditions. This product also repels rodents because of the peppermint oil smell that they hate to be around. Kills insects and repels rodents..ALL IN ONE!

    4 of 5 stars  New Weapon to Add to My Bed Bug Arsenal
    By Rodrick in Brooklyn, NY on 11/28/2011

    I use Essentria IC3 on hotel jobs for bed bugs at sites that were treated with traditional insecticides (Suspend, Phantom, Demon, etc) and I found it very effective. What I recommend is to mix Essentria IC3 with an IGR to add to the residual effect against bed bugs. This is a product I will continue to use.

    4 of 5 stars  This product IS labeled for Spiders
    By Jim in California on 06/26/2014

    The label DOES include spiders. Thus, one should expect it to kill spiders. I use it daily on the job (I work for a PCO). It kills spiders. I prefer 2oz/gal water. Indoors I have found .5 oz/gal to be a good "maintenance" mix once an infestation has been controlled. Not as smelly at that rate. PEACE

    By in Philadelphia, pa on 08/29/2013
    Verified Purchase

    Used the product today for the first time in my room through the tri jet fogger. I have to say I noticed a big difference. Not sure if it killed or repelled as these things are impossible to see with the naked eye. I used the max 8 ounces per gallon of water so it will not last long. However, I thought it was comparable to a cedar based product that I have used that retails for over $100/gallon so its still cheaper. I thought the odor was "pleasant" at about 5 minutes per room. If you over do it the odor will knock your socks off.

    1 of 5 stars  Good Idea but doesn't work for mosquitoes
    By John in Boston, MA on 09/03/2012

    Just doesn't work at all for mosquitoes. Sprayed many lots with it using a STIHL backpack. Used it at 5oz/gal with an average of 5 gallons per 1/2acre. I guess if it worked as claimed every company would use this as its safer compared to all the other products. Organic formula= Poor results and more $$. You're better off using the strong stuff that will yield results. I also emailed Envincio who makes the product and they did not respond. Don't waste your money.

    As a chemist I like using green products around my family, but after using this product I've heard nothing but complaints from my wife and mother-in-law about the smell. I think the smell is great, and it usually weakens in about a day, but I'm going to have to find a different product for treating the indoors, just to avoid their complaints. This is a great product, but if you live with someone with a sensitive nose don't use this one.

    I have tried this product and have had no results. As a matter of fact, after spraying, Ive now seen even more bugs. I know that its typical to see more bugs within the next few days of treating... but the influx of bugs started at least a week after spraying, and it continues. I didnt even see many roaches before, now I see them all the time. I have used this product to treat both indoors and out. I bought this as a safe method of treatment for my own and my pets health. I think its best to stick with industrial strength.

    By Sean in Rhinecliff, NY on 11/08/2011
    Verified Purchase

    Trying to do my part to save the planet & rid my house of shield bugs, I opted for the 'greener' insecticide option. Extremely easy to mix & apply, & makes the whole house perimeter smell great! The initial application seemed to work its magic. However, just a few days later, I had a few more shield bugs, though not as many as before. This could be due to the weather getting colder. I'll try a much less diluted mixture if I need to apply again in the future. (Used 4oz of IC3 per gallon of water).

QWhich products will work for spiders on my boat dock?
How often would need to spray on this metal dock and wooden walkways ?

AThe most popular spider control product for use around water is Essentria IC3. This is the most popular choice because it effective for spiders, kills most other insects (eliminating the spiders prey which will help keep new spiders from moving back into the area) and it safe to use around water. Most other insecticides are prohibited near the water because of the risk of contaminating the water and harming aquatic animals. You will need to repeat the application once a month through the warm season.

QAre Essentria products safe around pregnancy?

AYes, Essentria products are the safest professional products available.  They are made from plant oil extracts and contain no man made chemicals.  This being said, as when applying any insecticide, you should follow the label, only treat in approved areas, and have others leave the treatment area while you are treating.  After the spray dries, which usually only takes about 30 minutes, it is perfectly safe to have children, pets, and pregnant woman back in the area.

QCan Essentria IC3 Insecticide be mixed with Mosquito Barrier?

A

No, Essentria IC3 and Mosquito Barrier should not be mixed. They have two different modes of action and will essentially work against each other. If you are wanting something to provide a knockdown and have the residual effects, we would recommend using Exciter Insecticide. This can be mixed with Essentria IC3.

QEssentria IC3 for marina and boat spider/wasp control
We have a boat that's stored under a cloth cover on the water in an open but covered marina. We have a terrible problem with wasps and spiders infesting the boat and the marina roof above it. I'd like a product that I can apply no more than once per month to the underside of the roof and around the boat and cover that will kill the bugs and prevent them from coming back. The product would need to be safe for children on the boat and for fish since we'd inevitably get some overspray into the lake while spraying around the boat and marina. Is Essentria the right product for this, or can you recommend another one? Also, I've heard that these insecticides are safe around children "after they've dried." If we apply it to the inside of the boat and then let it dry, it will be re-wetted as water splashes back on the boat and wet kids crawl around on it. Will re-wetting the product make it toxic to humans again?

AEssentria IC3 is the right product for you! Essentria IC3 is safe to use around your family and also around aquatic life and it will work great for wasps and spiders. Essentria does not repel insects but rather eliminates them once they land on treated surfaces. Once Essentria IC3 has dried after the application it will not reconstitute so there is no worry that a child may be harmed if touching a surface that has been treated, dried and now has been gotten water on it.

QIs Essentria IC3 effective against ticks
Does it kill and repel ticks?

AEssentria IC3 is labeled for ticks and should do a great job helping to control them on your property. Do not make spot applications. Treat the entire area where exposure to ticks may occur. Use more water (not more product) when treating areas with dense ground cover or heavy leaf litter. Ticks may be reintroduced from surrounding areas on host animals. Retreatment may be necessary to achieve and/or maintain control during periods of high pest pressure. All of your pets should be treated with a product that is specifically labeled for use on dogs for tick control.

You can also help by creating a "tick safe zone" in your yard. You should have an area that is at least 9 ft wide between your yard and any wooded area. Trim back trees to allow as much sunlight as possible into your yard. Keep grass as short as possible. Remove as much leaf litter as possible. A clearly defined, well manicured border between your yard and any wooded areas or weedy lots will reduce the chance of ticks infesting your yard.
