EcoRaider's active ingredients are organically extracted and enhanced botanical insecticidal compounds which are similar to essential oils. It is formulated based on the patented technology platform from the "#1 effective bio-insecticide" for bed bugs as named by the entomological society of america. EcoRaider kills target insects with same or higher effectiveness comparing to traditional pesticides, without using synthetic pesticide toxins. With a unique mode of action, EcoRaider is effective on even pesticide resistant insect populations. Its micro-scale particles of active ingredients penetrate exoskeleton and attack a neuron receptor that only exists in invertebrates to cause quick paralysis and death of the insect. EcoRaider's effectiveness is lab-proven. Purdue University confirmed that it kills 100% of tested ants within 1 minute. Study results from the USDA invasive insect lab confirms its efficacy in controlling ticks with extended residual. In addition, EcoRaider also effectively kills beetles, crickets, dermestids, fleas, flies, gnats, lice, midges, millipedes, mites, moths, silverfish, spiders, springtails, stink bugs and many other pests. As lethal as it is to pest insects, EcoRaider only uses ingredients in compliance with FDA GRAS standards. It is categorized by the EPA as a minimum risk pest control product and exempt from registration. It is safe to use around children, pets, birds and fish.
