Essentria IC Pro, previously known as Essentria IC3, is a plant-based insecticide developed by Zoecon. It is specifically designed to effectively eliminate flying and crawling pests in both indoor and outdoor areas, particularly those that require special consideration, such as livestock facilities.
This liquid solution is derived from natural sources and contains active ingredients extracted from essential oils. The key components include geraniol (10.0%), clove oil (3.0%), and cornmint oil (1.5%). These ingredients work together to target insects like silverfish or pillbugs, providing noticeable results in as little as four days.
Essentria IC Pro is an ideal choice for homeowners, cannabis and hemp growers, and livestock owners who are dealing with active pest infestations affecting their property or food crops. It offers an environmentally friendly pest control solution. Importantly, when applied, it emits low fragrance and has low phytotoxicity, meaning it won't harm plants or release offensive odors that may disrupt the surrounding environment.
To apply Essentria IC Pro effectively, you can choose from a range of tools including handheld pump sprayers, backpack sprayers, professional skid sprayers, hose-end sprayers, compressed air sprayers, power sprayers, mist sprayers, mist blowers, automated spray systems, or other related application technologies.
How to Apply:
Step 1: Begin by calculating the amount of Essentria IC Pro needed for your treatment area. Measure the length and width of the area in feet, then multiply these measurements to determine the square footage (length x width = square footage). Depending on the type of pest, use 1 to 8 fluid ounces of Essentria IC Pro per gallon of water. Mix the final dilution using 2 gallons of solution per 1,000 square feet for indoor sites. For fog applications, mix 1 to 8 fluid ounces of product per 1 gallon of diluted spray and apply at a rate of 1 to 8 fluid ounces per 1,000 cubic feet. For outdoor use and perimeter applications, dilute 1 to 8 fluid ounces of product per gallon of water, and apply at a rate of 2 gallons per 1,000 square feet or until the area is thoroughly wet.
Step 2: Prepare your sprayer by filling it halfway with water. Add the measured amount of Essentria IC Pro to the sprayer. Fill the remaining half of the sprayer with water and securely close the lid. Shake the sprayer vigorously until the solution is thoroughly mixed.
Step 3: Indoors, apply the mixed Essentria IC Pro solution to cracks, crevices, niches, dark corners, drains, and other areas where insects may hide. Outdoors, spray the solution up to 3 feet on the structure and 6 to 10 feet wide around the building, including the surrounding vegetation. Additionally, apply the solution around potential entry points such as eaves, windows, doorways, porches, porch lights, and utility boxes. If you are using fogging equipment for space sprays, make sure to cover or remove exposed food and protect food handling surfaces. Also, cover sensitive surfaces like plastics. Close and turn off air conditioning or ventilation equipment, and keep the area closed for at least 15 minutes.
Step 4: Repeat the application of Essentria IC Pro as needed to maintain control against the target pests in specific areas. If you are targeting mosquitoes, wait for at least 4 days after the last application before spraying again. In livestock facilities, wait between 14 to 21 days before reapplying this product.

When to Apply:
Essentria IC Pro is designed to be applied promptly when pest activity is suspected or confirmed. Given that flying insects have the ability to move in and out of the treatment area, it is advisable to incorporate this product into an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program. By utilizing Essentria IC Pro as part of an IPM approach, you can enhance the effectiveness of pest control measures and achieve more comprehensive results.
When used as directed on the product label, Essentria IC Pro is considered safe for use around children and pets. However, it is essential to follow the instructions provided on the label carefully. It is recommended to wear appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) while mixing and applying this product to ensure safety.
Please note that premise sprays in livestock facilities should not be conducted when animals are present.
To ensure safety, it is important to prevent people and pets from entering the treatment areas until the product has completely dried. This allows for adequate time for the product to settle and minimize any potential risks.
Things to Consider:
Exercise caution and avoid spraying Essentria IC Pro on sensitive plants. If you are unsure about a particular plant's tolerance to the product, it is advisable to perform a test spray on a few leaves two days prior to applying it to the entire plant. It is important to note that exceeding the recommended application rates may potentially result in phytotoxicity, causing harm to turf and vegetation surfaces. Therefore, it is crucial to adhere to the specified rates to ensure the well-being of your plants and surrounding vegetation.
