In the quiet corners of a mindful home, the silent guardianship of nature stands vigilant. Dr. Killigan’s Cedar Ward brings this guardianship to modern homes, combining ancient wisdom with contemporary living. Our Cedar Ward, an exceptional cedar essential oil spray, offers a natural and potent pest control solution for those who prioritize a serene and insect-free environment.
Deep in the heart of nature's pest control arsenal lies the Eastern red cedar, known for its robust repellent qualities. At Dr. Killigan’s, we harness the pure essence of this formidable tree, transforming it into a potent spray that stands as a bastion against pests. With Cedar Ward, we invite you into an aromatic world where each spray is a step towards a harmonious home.
Cedar oil pest control: The robust repellant
The quest for a peaceful home is often marred by the tiny intruders that lurk in the shadows. Dr. Killigan’s Cedar Ward emerges as a powerful ally, its cedar oil is recognized for its ability to deter moths, cockroaches, ticks and silverfish with a scent as deterring to them as it is delightful to us.
Research underscores the efficacy of cedar in repelling unwanted pests. A pivotal study by Arthur G. Appel, Ph.D., from Auburn University, demonstrated cedar's non-toxic and significant repellent effect on urban pests, including brown-banded and German cockroaches and firebrats, (which belong to the same order as silverfish).
The study revealed that the level of repellency was proportionate to the amount of cedar present, highlighting the importance of adequate application for optimal protection. Remarkably, during a continuous seven-day exposure period, there was no mortality among the pests, emphasizing cedar's role as a repellent rather than a pesticide—a crucial distinction for mindful homeowners seeking non-lethal pest control solutions.
Further research lends credence to the traditional knowledge of cedar's repelling powers. Scientific studies, like that conducted by Sabine in 1975, delve into the heart of cedar's pest control capabilities, revealing that the key lies in two naturally occurring compounds: cedrene and cedrol.
These organic components have been shown to disrupt the reproductive cycle of pests like the peanut trash bug, the Indian meal moth, and the forage mite. By interrupting these cycles, Cedar Ward ensures that these pests do not find sanctuary within your home, protecting your peace without harsh chemicals.
The implications of these findings are profound. Dr. Killigan’s Cedar Ward, when used as directed, saturates your cedar with the very essence of this potent natural repellent. This creates a barrier that pests are hardwired to avoid, driving them away without harm and preserving the sanctuary of your home. The research confirms what we at Dr. Killigan’s have long championed: that our Cedar Ward is a vital component in maintaining a pest-free environment.
Application is simplicity itself. A generous misting of Dr. Killigan’s Cedar Ward onto bare, unsealed cedar wood works into the wood’s fibers, creating a long-lasting defense. It is the ritual of renewing your cedar's fragrance, a quarterly act that maintains freshness and continues the lineage of protection. With each application, you're not just repelling pests—you're embracing a tradition of natural, mindful home care.
Does cedar repel bugs? Unpacking the evidence
The bug-repelling prowess of cedar is not a mere old wives' tale; it's grounded in rigorous scientific inquiry. Research has shown that the aromatic compounds present in cedar oil are not just a deterrent but can also inhibit the growth and survival of pests like clothes moths and carpet beetles. Studies by Huddle and Mills (1952) and Laudani and Clark (1954) have documented the ability of cedar oil vapors not only to repel but also to kill these insects, which are known for their destructive habits in wardrobes and on carpets.
Taking this understanding further, Dr. Killigan’s Cedar Ward has been crafted to capitalize on these findings. Our cedar spray is designed to deliver the repellent action of cedar oil in a way that's both convenient and effective for mindful homeowners.
The significant repellent reaction cited by entomologist Arthur G. Appel, Ph.D., of Auburn University, confirms the effectiveness of cedar treatments against common domestic pests such as cockroaches and firebrats. His research provides a scientific backbone to our approach, ensuring that Dr. Killigan’s Cedar Ward is a formidable barrier against unwelcome insects.
