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.

Highlighted research findings: 

Study on urban pestsResearch led by Arthur G. Appel, Ph.D., from Auburn University, underscores cedar's efficacy. This study demonstrated a significant repellent effect on pests such as brown-banded and German cockroaches and firebrats. Notably, the repellency level was directly proportionate to the amount of cedar present, emphasizing the importance of adequate application for optimal protection. During a seven-day exposure, there was no mortality among the pests, confirming cedar's role as a repellent, not a pesticide.

Traditional knowledge and scientific validation:
Further research, including a 1975 study by Sabine, delves deep into cedar's pest control capabilities, pinpointing two naturally occurring compounds: cedrene and cedrol. These components disrupt the reproductive cycles of pests like the peanut trash bug, the Indian meal moth, and the forage mite. By interrupting these cycles, Cedar Ward prevents these pests from finding sanctuary within your home.


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, creating a barrier that pests are hardwired to avoid. This drives them away without harm and preserves 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.

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.
