At Cedarcide, we offer several pest-control solutions for both indoor and outdoor use. From concentrates to ready-to-use formulas, from personal & pet use to lawn & garden care, we have what you need to keep your home and yard free of pests.
But which products are right for you? To make your shopping experience easier, we’re launching a series of blog posts to help you better understand the differences between our most popular formulas. Today we’re talking about our two non-toxic insecticides/repellents: Cedarcide Original and Tickshield.
What is Cedarcide Original?
Our most popular solution, Cedarcide Original is a non-toxic insecticide & repellent for personal, pet and home use. Quick-drying and non-staining, Cedarcide Original’s 10% cedar oil formula is fast and effective on pests such as fleas, ticks and mosquitoes. (Cedarcide Original is not a lawn & garden product—Do NOT use it on grass or other plant life). For more tips on how to use Cedarcide Original, check out the instruction sheet on the Cedarcide Original product page.
Tips for Using Cedarcide Original On Cats: While Cedarcide Original is non-toxic, on rare occasions smaller cats and kittens have found the natural cedar scent of Cedarcide Original too strong for their liking. For this reason, we recommend testing for sensitivity with a light initial application. For more info on cedar oil and cats, click here.
Tickshield is a non-toxic, extra strength insecticide and repellent—think of it as a double strength version of Cedarcide Original (it contain 20% cedar oil). Tickshield is our strongest and longest-lasting formula, making it an ideal choice for hikers, campers and other outdoorsman. (We do NOT recommend using Tickshield on cats, smaller dogs, or animals under 20 lbs.). (Tickshield is not a lawn & garden product—Do NOT use it on grass or other plant life).
How Are They Different?
Tickshield is simply an extra strength version of Cedarcide Original insecticide & repellent.
Who Should Buy Tickshield?
For those who require extra strength insect protection—think hikers, campers, fishermen, and other outdoorsman. Tickshield is also an ideal insect repellent for larger pets, such as large dogs (20+ lbs.) and horses.
