Each year thousands of children under the age of six are poisoned by common household pesticide products.
Tor McPartland, owner and creator of Orange Guard, said, “As a small, family run business, it is humbling how incredibly loyal our customers are. Over the past 25 years, we are happy to have contributed to making the planet a healthier place.”
For a quarter of a century, Orange Guard has been committed to protecting homes, families, and the environment from unwanted pests without compromising on safety or sustainability. It all started in 1983, when Tor and Kathryn McPartland moved into a passive solar home that they had built in Carmel Valley, California and the ants were already there. Tor read in Science News that someone had taken a citrus hand cleaner and killed fire ants, so he wanted to create a product that was made entirely of edible plant extracts and water. Thus, Orange Guard was born.
With its orange peel oil active ingredient (d-Limonene, 5.8%) it is an all-natural, water-based formula that may be used around food, humans, and pets. It also leaves a pleasant orange aroma.
Orange Guard is a broad range contact insecticide and does no collateral damage. Orange Guard breaks down the exoskeleton of bugs when sprayed directly, resulting in suffocation. When sprayed into cracks and crevices, Orange Guard acts as a residual barrier repellent.
Orange Guard is registered with the EPA (EPA Reg. # 61887-1). All ingredients are on the FDA GRAS list (Generally Regarded as Safe). Orange Guard is also OMRI listed (Organic Material Review Institute) as allowed for use in organic production.
Orange Guard proved a natural and organic product could outperform the leading chemical solutions as well as meeting rigorous EPA standards. Why would you not want the best for your family? Orange Guard completes the healthy home.
Use Orange Guard indoors and outdoors and Orange Guard comes in quart and gallon sizes.
