The Ideal Pesticide

 Topic editor



The 5th Edition of Truman's Scientific Guide to Pest Control Operations description of the "The Ideal Pesticide":

"Ideally any pesticide will act rapidly on pests, yet be completely harmless to people, domestic animals, wildlife, and other aspects of the environment. Its residues would only last as long as was necessary to create the desired effect, usually for very short periods. It would also be inexpensive and readily available in necessary quantities, chemically stable (before application), non-flammable, and otherwise safe to use around homes or industrial sites. It would be easily prepared and applied, non-corrosive and non-staining, and it would have no undesirable odor. Unfortunately, no such (synthetic) pesticide exists."

Purdue University and Advanstar Communications _Pest Control Magazine_ worked on this 1997 Pest Control Manual, but they were, obviously, still unaware the Author had begun patenting and using and field testing the perfect Pesticide or Pestisafe® based on natural pest control.

In addition to being on the perfect pesticide poison descriptive list, Safe Solutions, Inc. enzyme cleaners, shampoos or soaps with enzymes will never create any pest resistance problems, and are truly the "perfect Pesticides." The entire compounds contain only ingredients that are considered non-toxic or GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe). Additionally, they can be used virtually everywhere, around people of all ages and health conditions and are active as long as they remain in liquid form. In addition, these Safe Solutions, Inc. products can be diluted/applied in such a way that only the pest species are killed, leaving the beneficial species alive!

The U. S. EPA prohibits any and all claims that any registered Pesticide poison is either safe or non-toxic. That is just another reason why we call enzyme cleaners, soaps and shampoos natural biological controls and/or Pestisafes® rather than Pesticide poisons. Maggots produce enzymes to soften up their food and make intake easier. Insectivore plants produce protease enzymes to digest their insect prey. Spiders and scorpions produce and inject protease enzymes to predigest their prey. All molting insects produce a small amount of protease enzyme to serve as a chemical "zipper" so they can split open their exoskeletons and grow out of it when they molt Without the enzymes they would be trapped inside their own exoskeletons and be crushed to death by their own growth. Fogging and/or spraying enzymes in or on gardens, lawns, orchards, fields, swamps, and/or directly on insects, washing floors, linen, clothing, pets, hair, etc. will quickly and safely result in virtually instant pest control. We strongly recommend you only use diluted Safe Solutions, Inc. enzyme cleaners or Not Nice to Lice® or Pet Wash®, Lice R Gone®, etc. (patented process) enzyme products (that contain protease enzymes, various surfactants and peppermint oil) to control virtually all insects, fungus, mildew and mold pests. http://www.safesolutionsinc.com

Most enzyme products or cleaners available at swimming pool supply or cleaning or janitorial supply houses use bacteria to create "their" enzymes. Often they use pet mess cleaners, drain openers and septic tank cleaners but some of the bacteria in these cleaners may be harmful to you and none of them are patented for this use. If the enzyme cleaner contains more than 1% protease enzymes and/or has a low pH, this product can be harmful t the skin and eyes.

Use the patented and patented process (commercial strength) Safe Solutions, Inc. enzyme cleaners at a rate of 1 oz. per quart to control virtually all pests or 1 - 3 oz. per gallon as a soak for ant nests or for as a floor cleaners. The body surface of insects consists of a hard skin known as the cuticle and the major pesticide pathway is cuticular penetration. The insect cuticle is hydrophobic so that it can resist desiccation and drowning. However, the protease enzyme and/or surfactants quickly and safely cut through this protective shell. Synthetic pesticide poisons use light oils, dusts and/or volatile solvents to help penetrate this same cuticle. But, Safe Solutions Enzyme Cleaners, Pet Wash and/or Lice R Gone® shampoos all have less than 1% protease and, unfortunately, all of them will kill all insects, including beneficials, so use them outside with great discretion! The dilution rate can be adjusted (1 - 500 or about ½ oz. enzyme cleaner per gallon water) when spraying for soft-bodied pests (aphids and lady bugs) while still not injuring other beneficial insects at this rate. For some pest species - spiders, ticks and yellowjackets - we recommend you only use Safe Solutions Enzyme Cleaner with Peppermint at a rate of 1 oz. per 1 quart water.
