Essentria: Octopamine Blocker Technology
The active component in Essentria products is a proprietary mix of natural essential plant oils.
Essentria: How it works
The plant essential oils that make up the active components in Essentria products do the job by interrupting the neurotransmitter function in targeted insects. Neurotransmitters conduct nerve impulses between the brain’s neurons (nerve cells) and other parts of the body like the muscles. The neurotransmitter attaches to a receptor site on the affected cells, and then breaks them down and deactivates it via enzymes. Invertebrates, like bed bugs, have a more simplistic nervous systems, and a multi-functional chemical called octopamine controls the majority of their abilities.
If we then make it target the octopamine receptors, plant essential oils are safer to use as an insecticide than many other poisons. Due to the fact that vertebrates such as animals like birds, fish, dogs and people have no octopamine receptors; they are not hurt by the way Essentria works. And, by mixing more than one type of plant essential oil compounds that are somewhat different in their makeup, Essentria products give more control over different types of bugs. That means holistic control of bugs and you don’t have to compromise your safety or effectiveness.
Bed Bug Treaments
For Best Results : Vacuum the infested room completely, making sure to include including the bed mattress, foundation/box springs and all of the upholstered furniture before you use Essentria products. Vacuum the entire area, including any carpets, rugs, floors or anywhere the floor touché the walls or is that is near the headboard. Throw out the bag inside the vacuum into an outside trash bin right away.
For Matress Applications: Take all of the linens and wash thoroughly in scalding water. Take the bed mattress and box springs off. With the can about six inches away, spray the mattress everywhere, including all the folds, tufts, seams and edging until wet. Don’t forget to spray the seams or under the box springs. Let them dry totally before you put them back onto the bed and then replace the bedding. Do it as many times as needed.
For Carpet/Rug Applications: With the can held about two feet from the ground, spray all the carpets, rugs, and flooring by using a back and forth pattern. Keep your focus on all of the places that bed bugs can live or hide. Spray every bit of the room’s carpeting. The areas to concentrate on include the part of the rug or carpeting that is next to and under your bed. Spray until wet. Don’t get it too wet to the point of being saturated. Let them dry totally and then vacuum. Do as many times as needed.
Note: Effectual bed bug control usually needs you to do several applications completely. This product has essential plant oils which are intrinsically fragrant. Anyone who is allergic to plant oils should test it on a small area before you use it in a large space. Even though it isn’t likely to stain most household items, you should also test to see if it causes any stains on a hidden area of the surfaces you plan to spray. Wipe off any extra residue on your furniture as soon as possible after applying the product. To keep from falling on hard floors, wipe off any extra residue with a wet towel. Best results will occur if you use this with other physical, environmental and chemical pest control methods.
For getting rid of infestations of fleas use a back and forth pattern of application, put down a light coating on all areas of the furniture, rugs, carpets, drapes, and all around where pets sleep. Don’t get things too wet; you only want a damp misting affect. Don’t use too much. You can put more down in two weeks if needed.
Important: The sole way of getting rid of the fleas or ticks totally is to apply it properly and thoroughly to all carpets rugs, curtains, upholstery and any other fabrics.
Dust Mite Treatments
Completely vacuum the whole area and concentrate on the areas mites live like the bed mattresses, box springs, headboards, walls, floors, carpeting and baseboards. Spray area until wet.
