Derived From Nature For Nature
Orange Guard Fire Ant Control will eradicate fire ants without risking the health of your family, pets or the environment because all the ingredients are on the FDA GRAS list (generally recognized as safe). Approved for use in organic production, this OMRI listed contact spray and repellent is water based, so further dilution is easy. It can be applied full strength or diluted 3 parts water to 1 part Orange Guard. It works by dissolving the waxy coating on the ant's exoskeleton, which clogs the spiracles (how they breathe), and they suffocate. The active ingredient, d-limonene, is a monoterpene used by plants to keep pests away.
