Perfect Pest Control

The 5th Edition of Truman’s Scientific Guide to Pest Control Operations described “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 I had begun patenting and using and field testing the perfect (pesticide) or Pestisafe® based on natural pest control.  In addition to their (perfect pesticide poison descriptive) list, Safe Solutions' enzyme cleaners Pestisafe® will never create any pest resistance problems, for it truly is the perfect pesticide and the entire compound contains only ingredients that are considered non-toxic or GRAS (Generally Regarded as Safe) and they are only active as long as they are liquid and can be used virtually everywhere, even when people are sick, under 1, over 60, pregnant and/or chemically sensitive to control even pesticide-resistant pests.

The U. S. EPA prohibits any/all claims that any registered pesticide poison is either safe or non-toxic.  That is just another reason why we call Safe Solutions' enzyme cleaners Pestisafes® rather than a pesticide poison.  Insectivore plants produce and also use protease enzymes to digest their insect prey.  Spiders produce and inject protease enzymes to predigest their prey and all molting insects produce a small amount of protease enzyme to serve as a chemical “zipper” so they can split open their exoskeletons when they molt and increase twice their size; without the protease enzyme they would be trapped inside their own exoskeletons and be crushed to death by their own growth.  Fogging and/or spraying Safe Solutions' enzyme cleaners 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 instant pest control.  We strongly recommend you only use diluted Safe Solutions' enzyme cleaners or Lice R Gone® or Not Nice to Fleas® or Not Nice to Bugs® enzyme products (that contain protease and other preformed enzymes) to control virtually all insects, fungus, mildew and mold pests.

Most enzyme products or cleaners available at swimming pool supply or cleaning or janitorial supply houses use bacteria to create “their” enzymes, e.g., pet mess cleaners, drain openers and septic tank cleaners - some of the bacteria may be harmful to you and none of them are patented for this use.  Use the patent pending Safe Solutions' Enzyme Cleaner at a rate of 2 - 4 oz. per gallon to control virtually all pests or 1/2-1 oz. per gallon as a soak for ant nests or for use as a floor cleaner.  The body surface of insects consists of a hard skin known as the cuticle - the major pesticide pathway is cuticular penetration.  The insect cuticle is hydrophobic so that it can resist desiccation and drowning but the Safe Solutions' Enzyme Cleaner enzymes 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.

Caution: Remember, these Safe Solutions' enzymes will kill all insects including beneficials - so use them outside with great discretion!  (See also protease enzymes.)  Note: You can adjust the Safe Solutions' Enzyme Cleaner dilution rate (1 - 200,000 parts  per gallon of water) when spraying for soft-bodied pest, e.g., aphids -  lady bugs and other beneficials will not be destroyed at this rate.  For some insect species, e.g., yellowjackets, we recommend you try 1 oz. of Safe Solutions' Enzyme Cleaner with Peppermint per gallon.  Gabriel Cousins, M.D. has stated, “All life depends on enzyme function.  When our enzymes are depleted, so is our vital force and health.”
