What makes Essentria™ IC3 work so well? Our most flexible, broad-spectrum EPA FIFRA 25(b) exempt product has gotten even better with three big improvements. There is no need for separate adjuvants, and we’ve added a fragrance modifier for a non-intrusive botanical fragrance. A convenient new quart size means you have an option for any sized job, even near or over water. Plus, our proprietary Octopamine BlockerSM technology uses natural botanical compounds to provide fast, complete knockdown with residual control. Essentria IC3 takes EPA FIFRA 25(b) exempt, organic-compliant insect control to a new level of efficacy and convenience with no compromises.
Unique Mode of Action: Essentria IC3’s Octopamine Blocker Technology provides fast knockdown and kill across a broad spectrum of flying and crawling insects. The essential oils that comprise the active ingredients in Essentria products work by disrupting the neurotransmitter function in target insects. In invertebrates, with their simpler nervous systems, a multi-functional chemical known as octopamine handles many of these functions. By targeting octopamine receptors, these essential oils provide insecticidal activity with a much wider margin of safety than other products. Because vertebrates like birds, fish, dogs and people don’t have octopamine receptors; they are not affected by this unique mode of action.
Sensitive Accounts: Because IC3 is based on botanical actives and is a 25(b) minimum risk insecticide, it does not require a re-entry period, making it perfect for treating accounts with a lot of human activity such as schools, day care facilities and commercial establishments. IC3 can also be used in many areas where efficacy cannot be compromised, while treatments must be made in the most chemically sensitive way possible. Zoos, animal clinics, educational facilities, government buildings, healthcare facilities and interior treatments of residential accounts are a few examples of such sites. Food processing facilities also directly benefit because Essentria IC3 applications may be made while the plant is in operation.
Organic Programs: Essentria IC3 is NOP (National Organic Program) compliant which makes it the product of choice for operators everywhere who are treating organic facilities of all types. This includes food processing facilities, restaurants, and retail establishments where organic produce is sold. This feature also makes Essentria IC3 the “Gold Standard” product for all Green Pest Management accounts.
No Aquatic Setback Requirements: Essentria IC3 has no aquatic toxicity, therefore, applications may be made near or over open water. This allows for the mitigation of spiders around boat docks and marinas. This also allows for thorough mosquito abatement treatments in areas where foliage runs adjacent to and over bodies of water.
