Stop Bugging Me!
Summer is in full swing and so is the return of pesky biting insects! They invade our backyard barbecues and can wreak havoc in our flower and veggie gardens. Even our fur babies aren’t safe! Don’t let these little buggers ruin your good times. Protect your family and gardens with Yard Guard, an all-natural and family-safe alternative to chemical pesticides.
Yard Guard uses concentrated cedar oil to repel and kill all kinds of non-beneficial insects, including ants, aphids, chiggers, chinch bugs, fleas, gnats, grubs, Japanese beetles, mealy bugs, mites, mole crickets, mosquitoes, moths, Palmetto bugs, roaches, scorpions, spiders, spider mites, squash bugs, stink bugs, ticks, webworms, and a whole lot more. It even repels most snakes! And, best of all – Yard Guard won’t repel or kill pollinators or beneficial insects!
For Natural Widespread Insect Protection in Your Backyard
You can spray Yard Guard anywhere you want safe, all-natural protection. Cedar loves water, so spraying Yard Guard after a rain or watering your lawn works best. Spray your lawn, bushes and tree trunks. This is a non-staining formula, so it’s safe to spray directly on decks, patios, outdoor furniture, and screens. During hot, dry weather, spray early in the morning or in the evening when temperatures are below 80 degrees.
Natural Insect Protection in Your Flower Garden
You’ve worked hard to create a beautiful garden sanctuary – don’t let unwanted insects ruin your efforts! To protect your flowers, water your garden as usual, then spray Yard Guard directly on the leaves, stems, and over the soil, avoiding any blossoms. Do NOT spray on plants that are wilted or damaged by drought conditions.
Natural Insect Defense in Your Vegetable Garden
Hooray for loads of fresh fruit and veggies! It’s finally time to enjoy the “fruits” of your labor. Keep those pesky bugs from munching on your harvest! Yard Guard is safe to spray directly on vegetables, just be sure to avoid any blossoms. Yard Guard’s natural anti-fungal properties work especially well on plants in the squash family, where powdery mildew is a common problem. While Yard Guard is non-toxic, it will leave a funny taste on your vegetables, so be sure to wash them thoroughly before eating!
All Natural Flea and Tick Repellent for Pets and Humans
“Hoomans” aren’t the only ones annoyed by biting insects. You can use Yard Guard to protect your fur babies from ticks and fleas, too! Make your own mix using a trigger spray bottle with a recipe of 6 oz of Yard Guard per gallon of water, or 1.5 to 2 oz per quart.
For dogs, just wet their fur and rub in well. Fleas and mites hate it, and dogs often find it soothing for hot spots. Be sure to avoid their eyes, but quickly flush them with water as needed if contact occurs. Spraying your dog (and/or yourself!) before a hike in the woods will repel any fleas, ticks, or mosquitoes lying in wait.
You can spray directly on your cat’s fur if they are docile enough, otherwise spray the product on your hands and rub it in. (If you are concerned about phenols or phenolic compounds, common ingredients in essential oils that are fatal to cats, rest assured that cedar is one of the safest plant oils to use around cats. Our formula contains zero phenols or phenolic compounds.)
Do NOT spray near exotic birds or rodent pets (rabbits, hamsters, etc), as they tend to find the smell of cedar oil to be pretty unpleasant.
Wishing you all a fantastic summer…
Get out there and enjoy it, pest-free!
