Safer Pest Control Technology
Eco-PCO products contain new active ingredients, trademarked as Hexa-Hydroxyl, are based on distinct combinations of different plant essential oils that significantly enhance the activity of these oils against insects. This patented technology demonstrates rapid insecticidal activity by combining oils with a common molecular structure (a six-membered carbon ring with an oxygenated functional group attached. Hexa-Hydroxyl's unique mode of action targets a key neurotransmitter receptor called Octopamine, which is found in all invertebrates, but not mammals. Octopamine regulates an insect's heart rate, movement, behavior and metabolism. Interrupting the functioning of Octopamine results in a total breakdown of the insect's nervous system.
In addition to the fact that Hexa-Hydroxyl targets a receptor site that doesn't exist within mammals, many of the plant essential oils containing Hexa-Hydroxyl are classified as Generally Recognized As Safe ("GRAS") and/or have been approved for food and beverage consumption by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). As a result of their food grade status, these plant essential oils also qualify for preferential regulatory status with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). EcoPCO® offers minimum risk and bio-pesticide products, as promulgated under the 1996 Food Quality Protection Act.
University, field, and most importantly, professional pest management trials, have proven Hexa-Hydroxyl's ability to kill and control a broad spectrum of insects
As for expert testimonials, here's what Dr. Mike Rust and Mr. Reierson, entomologists at the University of California-Riverside, had to say about the effectiveness of EcoPCO.
In residual studies, EcoPCO D provided toxic activity from the active ingredients for almost two months, and as Don Reierson adds:
Eco PCO Contact Aerosol Contact kill for broad range of household insect pests.
Eco PCO Jet Wasp Freeze
Eco PCO D Insecticide dust; available in 12 ounce and 5 pound containers.
