Essentria IC3
Great product from a great company. Received it well-packaged within 2-days !!! Safe product that works to control ants, spiders etc. in the bakcyard. Love the aroma. Due to location of my house, we need to reapply about every 2 months, or so, for maintenance. I don't believe in eradicating all the ant population...I one time did that by purchasing a series of professional treatments, only to end up with Termites...Lesson learned: ants and spiders are the natural enemies of Termites.

Essentria IC3
Has a great non-offensive smell! We diluted it 4:1 and added it to a fogger and placed it outside to lightly fog the yard. It has been the best thing we have used. We live near a lake and have a horrible mosquito problem...until now!
April 27, 2017
Works well for an all-natural, exempt product.
I am satisfied with this product's effectiveness.
May 25, 2013
Bring Back the original formula
This is not the same product as Eco Smart IC2 exempt It does not have the lasting power like the Eco. To many returns to the customer.... not cost efective......Back to drawing board boys this product is a fail

Eco IC is great
I have been using ECO Products for awhile now, and they are great. They are safe, no lasting smells, and are a great price. I really like ECO ""IC"". Great knockdown power and is a great residual. I recommend ""ALL"" ECO products to everyone.
