Which Nature-Cide do I use for outdoor control?
While both concentrates are labeled for indoor and outdoor use, Nature-Cide Pest Management X2 is ideal for outdoor control and can be applied using a Power Sprayer, backpack sprayer and handheld sprayers.
Does the All Purpose have a residual?
The Nature-Cide All Purpose is a contact kill. The Aerosol and the concentrate will contact all soft bodied insects (see label for target pests). The All Purpose does not leave a residual insecticide.
Does the Pest Management X2 have a residual?
Yes, Pest Management X2 will not only kill on contact, but the cinnamon oil will continually repel insects. To extend these benefits, many PMP’s use an adjuvant/spreader sticker so that the product adheres to leafy surfaces. For outdoor Flea, Mosquito and Tick control we recommended adding and IGR, such as Tekko Pro.
Do I need a license to treat customers’ homes with Nature-Cide?
Yes, even though Nature-Cide is a 25(b) exempt, all-natural product most states require you to have proper licensing for both indoor and outdoor application regardless of what product you are using.
Can a home Owner purchase Nature-Cide All Purpose or Pest Management X2 concentrates?
No, both the Nature-Cide concentrates are sold to licensed exterminators and lawn care operators through our distributor partners.
Where can I purchase Nature-Cide

What is the mix rate for mosquito control
For outdoor mosquito control we recommend Pest management X2. For spray rigs, use at a rate of 1oz per gallon of water. For all other apparatus recommended mix rate is 1-2oz per gallon of water. When mixing Nature-Cide concentrate, always mix in a separate DRY container. Add measured Nature-Cide, then add water. Agitate well, then pour into your spray equipment and jet in remaining water. NEVER add Nature-Cide to water. Always add water to Nature-Cide.
Will Nature-Cide kill rodents?
No, Nature-Cide has a very low mammalian toxicity, so it will not kill rodents. It will however repel rodent and snakes. To use Nature-Cide Pest Management X2 as a snake or rodent repellent, use at a mix rate 7oz of Nature-Cide Pest Management X2 per gallon of water.
