Medina Orange Oil
August 27, 2013
Used as fire ant killer in Mother Earth News recipe. Worked great. Ants were dead in just a few hours and no new hills developed nearby.

I've been using this product from Medina Agricultural Products for several years, and I have been using orange oil to kill fleas and their eggs for over 25 years. This is a great product. My animals haven't had fleas since I first started using it 25 years ago. I add water and orange oil in a spray bottle and spray my carpets before I vacuum. I probably wouldn't use it on something white but other than that it doesn't seem to discolor anything. I also use iron oil based spills to clean up in my husbands shop. It works wonders.

Great success on fire ants
By Deborah in Naples, Florida on October 11, 2014
I purchased Medina Orange Oil to control fire ants in my new vegetable garden spot to avoid using nasty chemicals. Mixed at 1 1/2 oz. to a gallon of water and a few drops of dish detergent and poured into the nest, I have seen better results so far than Amdro used in other parts of the yard. After 10 days, I have seen no more fire ant activity in my new garden. YEAH!!!

February 11, 2014Renee from Honolulu, Hawaii asked:
QWill product stop cats from pooping in the yard? Is it safe around children?
I work at a child care center and need a product or something that will keep cats from pooping on the artificial grass and safe around children.
AOrange Oil is safe for children and pets as long as they are kept out of the treated area and dries completely before allowing re-entry. Orange Oil is known to repel certain insects like Fire Ants, however, the manufacture does not make claims that it will repel domesticated animals such as cats. Please see our Cat & Dog Repellant page for products that are safe and effective at repelling nuisance cats.

QWhat is proper mixture of Orange Oil for spraying carpet to get rid of fleas?
AOrange Oil is not labeled to be applied on carpets for fleas so we are not able to advise of the mixture rate for this use.
For indoors, we would highly recommend our Indoor Flea Kit. It is our most popular product for indoor flea control and is usually the final treatment that people end up using that works when they have tried everything else. Here is a link for you to read further: Indoor Flea Control

QIs the ingredients in Medina Orange Oil similar to the brand name product XT-2000 Orange Oil?
AWhile most Orange Oil products are exactly that, oil extracted from orange peels, we cannot tell you for sure if its the same as the brand you mentioned as we do not carry the XT 2000.
April 27, 2015Bun from Tucson, Az asked:
QCan orange oil be substituted for an MSO?
I noticed that Orange Oil is in the surfactants category and I'm looking for an MSO to improve penetration of my herbicides. I also noticed orange oil seems a natural alternative to the more heavily manufactured synthetic MSO's, would it be reasonable to try and substitute it?
ADiluted solutions of the Orange Oil can be used as a natural adjuvant to assist other sprays and soil applications. For other non label uses we recommend you contact the manufacturer, Medina Agricultural Products at 830-426-011.

June 29, 2013Mark from Medford, Or asked:
QWill this kill the borers that are killing my trees?
The tree guy says to use Seven, but I'd like something organic to kill them.
AThe Orange Oil will not likely work for the boring beetles in your trees as it will not translocate through the tree. What type of trees do you have and what type of boring beetle are you dealing with?
