I have great news! Not only will EcoTreat not harm your yard, I think you'll find your yard to much healthier with a decreased presence of bugs that feed on your plants. Most customers experience an increased presence of beneficial bugs such as butterflies and ladybugs with regular use of EcoTreat.
Fleas do not survive long in hot, sunny areas and thrive in the shade. Temperatures above 95 degrees with humidity less than 50% will kill flea larvae. If your lawn sees a lot of sun, you will likely see an increased presence of these pests. Because EcoTreat is applied with water, a thorough soaking of the mulch and soil in the yard will help to eradicate these fleas and other pests such as ticks and mosquitoes.
Thanks again for your question!

Thank you, Wondercide, for your followup.

So glad to hear you've used the EcoTreat before and loved the smell of the cedar! We love it too Whip worms are parasitic worms that originate in the soil, so EcoTreat would be effective against them.
If your pet currently has whip worm, we do carry a product called Neem Bark Powder - a natural antihelminthic - which is known to expel parasitic worms.
Hope this helps! Let us know if you have any other questions.

I saw on the company website that Wondercide that Ecotreat is effective at getting hookworm larva or eggs. Does anyone know if it is also effective against whip worms?
I love the smell of the yard after I spray it -- the cedar smell is absolutely wonderful.

Also, he mulches leaves/grass (leaves clippings) which nourish lawn...we barely have any weeds, however, does this contribute to harbouring fleas/ticks and will it affect getting product to the little beasties to kill?

Hi Lynn! Thanks so much for all your feedback and we're so sorry we were unable to provide more detailed information upon your first contact. Since you first reached out we've been in touch with several outlets, including a nematode retailer, to help provide you with the most complete information possible as to the use of Wondercide with nematodes. It sounds like you've already gotten some great information, but we just wanted to follow-up and help in any way possible.
Nematodes live in soil and thrive in moist areas. Drenching the soil would possibly affect the nematodes if you were using straight cedar oil, but only because they need a moist environment and the oil would obviously inhibit that. If using EcoTreat, it's possible the first layer of nematodes would be affected, but waiting a week as Arbico suggested would greatly reduce any risk.
As far as Wondercide products causing respiratory problems, we have not had any reported cases of this and there is nothing toxic in the solution. Each animal is different with different sensitivities, so we would suggest testing a small area first if your pet has known allergies or sensitivities.
We hope this helps but please let us know if we can provide any further clarification or assistance!

Just heard back from Arbico Organics. Talk about great customer service!!
She said lay down the nematodes- wait a week then lay down the Ecotreat cedar oil from Wondercide and the nematodes should be ok.
Just an FYI if anyone is interested. I asked about DE and nematodes and she said I should follow the same route- put down the nematodes then wait a week before applying DE.

|Traveler's Mom||Thanks for the heads up, Nancy. Good to know. I was thinking dusk as well since we haven't seen temps below 85-88 in weeks. Don't want to cook them.|

|jocoyn||Oy. Well the nematodes.....application can be a bit tricky. They are not evenly distributed in the block ......So I made successive dilutions and used them ASAP! I chose the dusk application because I figured that gave them the most time to get comfy before the sun came out. I am getting ready to order mine. We had some late low temps so I wanted to be sure it would not get too cold.|
