EcoSmart is leading the way in the development of pest control products that are derived from essential plant oils. The EcoSmart difference is their extensive research and testing to prove that their products actually perform.
I had the opportunity to meet one of the scientists who does some of this research and testing, Gretchen Palich Ph.D. of EcoSmart and Iowa State University, at the event. Gretchen had several tables with the actual plants used in EcoSmart products such as Rosemary & Peppermint along with vials of the extracted oils.
Gretchen went into great detail about how EcoSmart not only tests the effect on the target organism but on non-target organisms in an attempt to limit the effect on them since they are beneficial. Gretchen is also doing research into the attractant nature of these essential oils and the application of that technology.
Magic has been using EcoSmart products as part of our Green Shield Certified Pest Control Services for many years. Magic looks forward to incorporating these new EcoSmart products into our Bed Bug Protocol.
