EcoSMART Technologies, the world leader in safe pesticide solutions, is a venture-backed company with patented technology and a world-class management team. Our mission is to create the world’s safest, most effective pesticides based on natural ingredients. We have 15 years of scientific research and a wealth of patents behind us. We make the only 100% safe insecticide that is proven to work. We offer the only complete line of EPA exempt pesticides sold in the US.
Essential Oils – Nature’s Way
EcoSMART was the first company to apply modern science to essential plant oils — creating the first 100% safe pesticides. Our products are based on the natural defenses that plants and trees have used for their self protection against insects and pathogens for millenia – essential oils.
EcoSMART is based on solid science
University research has shown that these oils attack octopamine neuro-receptors. Octopamine is a key insect neurotransmitter that regulates insect movement, behavior and metabolism. The blockage of the receptor activity prevents the transmission of the octopamine signals, which delivers quick knock down, kill and repellency against a wide variety of household pests such as cockroaches, ants, dust mites, flies, wasps, spiders, crickets, and fleas. Our blends of natural plant oils are every bit as effective as synthetic chemicals, killing bugs fast without any toxins or harmful residues.
Our Patents and Technology Platform
EcoSMART has been issued 40 U.S. patents and 55 foreign patents, with multiple applications pending. The Company has 20 product formulations that are exempt from EPA registration under the rules defined in the 1996 Food Quality Protection Act. Under these rules, EcoSMART’s EPA exempt products can make unique, explicit safety claims not allowed with traditional pesticides. These safety claims enable EcoSMART to clearly distinguish itself from conventional, synthetic products.
Safe around children, pets, and the environment
Since EcoSMART’s proprietary botanical oil blends attack attributes that are specific only to pests, they have no effect on people, pets or the environment. The primary active ingredients in EcoSMART products are approved as Direct Food Additives or classified as GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration. These oils are commonly used to add flavor and aroma to many cosmetic, beverage and food products, including cake, candy, sweetener, gum, soft drinks, and lipstick. Children and pets are safe. No need to clear them out after application or be concerned if they are near our products. Our products have no adverse effect on mammals, birds, and fish and also will not contaminate water sources.
Long track record
We are not newcomers to this. EcoSMART’s university-tested and field-proven technology has provided natural pest control solutions to the agricultural and commercial markets for many years. EcoSMART is a trusted name in the organic produce market and provides safe and effective alternatives to conventional insecticides for leading commercial pest control services.
