When it comes to controlling common garden pests, it’s “game on” at GardenCare Naturals
Our first commercial product, Peppermint Fury, is a state-of-the-art natural pesticide made of organic peppermint oil and water using NanoParticle Technology. It kills harmful insects and mildew in one application. Simply spray it on and those pests are gone! It can “debug” a garden overnight or prevent mildew from creeping into your fall harvest. This is the product you have been looking for! It’s safe, easy to use, and effective. Our research indicates that plants thrive when Peppermint Fury is used to prevent or control common garden pests. For best results, it should be used in rotation with other natural pesticide products.
Why It Works so WellChoosing the Correct Essential Oil. Our quest for the perfect pesticide started with a review of the 15 essential plant oils allowed for use by the EPA as active ingredients in minimum-risk pesticides. We tested each of these oils on cannabis plants infected with two-spotted mites and russet mites. We also tested the oils on mildew. This research clearly showed that peppermint oil was the most effective in killing mites and mildew and it was the least damaging to plant tissue. Further tests showed that it is very effective on roses, rhododendrons, azaleas and many other indoor and outdoor plants.
Nanotechnology. Our early decision to embrace NanoParticle Technology has paid off. This technology allows us to create state-of- the-art formulas that are more stable (don’t separate) and effective because the oil droplets are encapsulated in extremely small particles (micelles). GardenCare Naturals is one of the only companies in the world to use NanoParticle Technology to produce safe, natural pesticides.
At GardenCare Naturals we question everything instead of relying on conjecture and conventional wisdom. Then we design experiments to find answers. By selecting the best of the essential oils and developing a NanoParticle formulation at the correct concentration we now have one of the most effective natural pesticides on the market.
Thank you for visiting our website. For those of you who would like to learn more about pest management, essential plant oils, or nanotechnology we have included some original articles for further study. As always, we welcome your feedback. Peppermint Fury is relatively new and its effectiveness on many pests and plant species has not been tested. Let us know what you discover. We look forward to working with you!
