ECTO BLASTER

Suitable for:

COMPOSITION:

Essential oils (Neem oil, Eucalyptus oil, Citronella oil).

DESCRIPTION:

Ecto Blaster contains the essential oils of the Neem tree (Azadirachta indica), Eucalyptus oil and citronella oil. The most important ingredient found in neem oil is Azadirachtin which is structurally similar to insect hormones called “ecdysones”, which control the process of metamorphosis as the insects pass from larva to pupa to adult. Azadirachtin seems to be an “ecdysone blocker”. It blocks the insect’s production and release of the hormones needed for the metamorphosis. Insects then will not molt, thus breaking their life cycle. Azadirachtin may also serve as a feeding deterrent for some insects. Depending on the stage of life-cycle, insect death may not occur for several days. However, upon ingestion of minimum quantities, insects become quiescent and stop feeding. Residual insecticidal activity is evident for 7 to 10 days. Neem oil also contains Mellantriol and Salannin, which are feeding detergents, meaning they make the insect lose their appetite and stop eating. Eucalyptus oil contains 1,8-cineole, which is a penetration enhancer, making the insect more vulnerable for the effects of Azadirachtin. Citronella oil works as a repellent, by blocking the scent that attracts insects. Ecto Blaster is harmless for birds and mammals.
