In the timeless struggle against pests, nature has always given us potent weapons. Foremost among these is cedar, revered for its ancient protective qualities. Yet, as time moves forward, so does our need to refine and bolster these natural defenses. Presenting Dr. Killigan’s Cedar Ward® — the premier cedar spray, a harmonious blend that captures cedar's timeless safeguarding essence tailored for the contemporary homeowner's needs. Let's delve into why Cedar Ward should be your first line of defense in natural pest control.
Harnessing the essence of cedar
Historically, cedar has been our shield against pesky intruders. However, cedar's inherent protective qualities can diminish with time, as exposure to the elements, aging and natural wear can lead to a gradual reduction in cedar's aromatic oils, weakening its innate repellency over time. Crafted to serve as a premium cedar spray, Cedar Ward rejuvenates and amplifies cedar's inherent properties, offering a renewed protective aura.
Our formula goes beyond simple deterrence. In addition to warding off clothing moths and other pests, the dominant cedar scent, complemented by a hint of spice, immerses you in the essence of a lush cedar forest with every spray.
Empowering cedar's potential
Central to Cedar Ward is its revitalizing nature. Comprising 20% cedarwood oil, extracted from the juniper of the Cupressaceae family, its efficacy in pest control is unparalleled. Historically recognized as a potent fungicide, molluscicide and insect repellent, it is your shield against pests like clothing moths, cockroaches, and silverfish.
The strength of cedarwood oil lies in its unique composition.
Cedarwood oil is known for its high cedrol content, crucial for its repellent properties, especially against mosquitoes and moths. In addition, compounds such as β-Caryophyllene and γ-Eudesmol enhance the oil's overall repellency. The higher cedrol content in Cedarwood oil Virginia, compared to its Texas counterpart, likely accounts for its enhanced insect repellent capabilities, making it a prime ingredient for insecticides.
Using Cedar Ward is straightforward: Spritz Cedar Ward onto bare, unsealed cedarwood until saturated. As the wood absorbs it, it refreshes the cedar, rejuvenating and enhancing its repellent qualities. A quarterly application ensures continuous protection. If you have Cedar Planks, refresh them with Cedar Ward too.
With Cedar Ward, it's more than just an essential oil spray; it's a cedar spray with unparalleled benefits.

At Dr. Killigan's, our ethos revolves around creating solutions that are both safe and potent. Cedar Ward is a testament to this commitment. The primary ingredient (cedarwood oil) is recognized not just for its repellency but also its benign nature.

The pitfalls of synthetic solutions: A closer look at mothballs
In the vast world of pest control, many have resorted to using mothballs, a popular synthetic solution. While they have garnered praise for their effectiveness, the very essence of mothballs poses significant concerns. Comprised almost entirely of naphthalene or paradichlorobenzene, mothballs are nothing short of pure pesticides. Their potency, however, is a double-edged sword.
These toxic chemicals, while deadly to moths, are also harmful to pets and humans, especially when inhaled in concentrated amounts. Over time, exposure to the strong fumes can lead to health complications, making one question if the safeguarding of a beloved sweater is worth the potential risk to one's health.
Contrastingly, natural cedar sprays like Dr. Killigan’s Cedar Ward offer a safer alternative. Instead of inundating your living space with chemicals, you're introducing an age-old protective measure that's both effective and safe. When the choice stands between exposing your household to harmful chemicals or embracing nature's wisdom, the latter undeniably stands out as the prudent choice.
Honoring cedar’s rich legacy
While Cedar Planks come from eastern red cedar, Cedar Ward's potency is derived from the Cupressaceae family, a juniper variant. This tree, laden with essential oils, boasts a rich historical tapestry of diverse uses.
From ancient civilizations employing cedarwood in religious ceremonies to its incorporation in traditional medicines for its aromatic and therapeutic benefits, the cedar tree has left an indelible mark on human history. Through Cedar Ward, we harness this legacy, offering you a potent shield fine-tuned for modern challenges.
In essence, Cedar Ward isn't merely a product—it’s a salute to a time-honored legacy and a nod to nature’s unparalleled wisdom.
