How effective is this product on fleas and bedbugs, and if it is what is the recommended dosage to use?
Eco Exempt IC-2 Insecticide is an all natural product that was formulated to compete directly against top synthetic pyrethroid insecticides such as Talstar P or Suspend SC. The majority of our customers that have purchased Eco Exempt IC-2 Insecticide have been very pleased with the results they have received when using it for bedbugs and fleas when used as directed on the product label. We now carry the Essentria IC3 which is a new version of the Eco IC-2 with the adjuvant already included and it is available in a smaller sized package.
When treating for bed bugs thoroughly clean, vacuum, and air mattresses and springs prior to treatment. Mix EcoEXEMPT IC2 at a rate of 1 to 4 ounces per gallon of water and apply as a spot treatment to cracks and crevices, around baseboards, floorboards, headboards, and walls. In hotels and other public lodging facilities pay special attention to luggage stands and the adjacent area. On mattresses and springs spot treat only areas that may harbor pests. Concentrate on tufts, seams, folds, and creases. Repeat as necessary. To prevent potential discoloring, do not spray on visible areas (i.e. baseboards, door frames, walls, etc.) and wipe away excess. You should use more than one type of product when treating for bedbugs. You should also be using an aerosol spray to get into small cracks and crevices and you should also use a dust insecticide for the longest lasting residual possible. We also recommend using a steamer when and where possible to help kill bedbugs and their eggs on contact with out chemicals.
Fleas Outdoors:Use 2 to 4 ounces of EcoEXEMPT IC2 per gallon of water and apply at the rate of 2 to 4 gallons
per 1000 square feet or until area is thoroughly wet.
