How to Use PCO Choice
In the hose end sprayer, dilute 4 oz. PCO with 22 oz. warm water
and shake well. Once mixed, attach hose end sprayer to hose,
turn valve on, and begin spraying. Apply to entire outdoor space
evenly, including shrubbery and bases of trees. Re-application
after heavy rain may be necessary. For best results, apply in the
early morning or late evening. Apply monthly or as needed.


Why Choose PCO Choice over Yardsafe?

PCO Choice is a concentrate, which means you can choose the strength at which you apply it. YardSafe is a ready-to-use, pre-diluted version of PCO. PCO will last longer: 1 quart covers approximately 1 acre or 40,000 sq. ft. But Yardsafe is more convenient and easier to use: 1 quart covers approximately 1/8 acre or 5,000 sq. ft.

    PCO Choice by cedarcide is the the only one that keeps my snakes and scorpions away. I live in the foothills and near a lake so come spring the rattlers will be out, I have two toddlers I have to look out for and usually do Easter at my house every year. This is the stuff, the scorpions were in my house, and by the way its brand new built, but after cedarcide I have only seen mabey one scorpion a yr in the basement, and no more ratllers WHOOHOO!!!!

  2. PJ Worley

    I wrote a great rating and it disappeared. I don’t have time to redo. This is a GR8 product and we have recommended it to neighbors and businesses with excellent results. I’m sorry my detailed review disappeared.

    I am in my 3rd year of using PCO in my yard. I installed a pool and did not put a cage over it. I live in Florida. Bugville. I started using it when the pool was finished and have been very satisfied with the results. I now have friends using it all over the place. I spray it using my irrigation system and an occasional application with an hose end-sprayer.
    As we are outside year around, including eating most of our meais poolside under an awning, I probably use a little more than necessary – a couple gallons a year. However, it is well worth it.

    Our home is between two open fields and we had bugs galore, scorpions too. We have used this products for two years and it works great. No longer have bugs, chiggers, ticks and best yet no scorpions! You will not be disappointed.

  5. Lauren Gendil

    My dogs got fleas (we had NEVER had them before!) and I found that they came from our neighbors yard. I used PCO to kill them in our yard and convinced my neighbor to use it too (even though I had to spray for them) and NO MORE FLEAS! My pups are happy and so am I. I like that it is safe and natural and its concentrated so a little last a long time for us.

    I cant believe how well this stuff works…My son came over and sprayed my yard for ants last week using the PCO Choice. I went out yesterday and there is not one ant in my yard. I went from having 5 huge ant beds to zero ant beds….I’m blown away that my grandkids can play in the yard and I don’t have to worry about them getting bitten. Thanks to the Cedarcide company!

  7. Karen J. Sundqvist

    Easy to use product, which seems to have reduced the tick population in my back yard, it is pretty expensive though.

  8. Jim Gibson

    I have been using this product for 5 years. It is THE BEST product for controlling fleas, etc., in the yard on the market today. I apply it once in the spring and there are no fleas or ticks in my yard all year long, not to mention other critters I do not want. It allows my pet to roam the yard at will with no worries. And it is totally harmless to humans and pets. Fantastic product.

  9. Sallie

    CedarCide seems expensive, but it’s a safe and effective pesticide. Easy to use — arrives with easy-to-measure instructions and dispenser for your hose. Works for everything and lasts. Highly recommended!

  10. Luceelu

    With 3 dogs a flea outbreak was unbearable. Not matter what (t0xic) product I tried none worked inside and out without poisoning me and the dogs. PCO ended the misery. I used it with the hose end sprayer and not only were the fleas gone but the mosquitoes too! For the fleas I did have to apply it twice as is recommended but it was easy and totally worth it. Fleas have not come back. I will still use PCO for mosquito control forever.

  11. Janice Plummer

    its natural and it works – no harsh odor just the natural scent of cedar to keep all insects away from inside our house.

  12. Tomas S

    This is a great product. I was hesitant this could get rid of our fire ant and flea problem but it did. And with not ill effects on my dogs. Just wish this stuff could keep out squirrels. Thanks Cedarcide.

  13. Amber J.

    I have had great success with getting rid of mosquitos around my house! I’m a DIY addict, so I’m always in my garage working on projects and I was getting eaten alive by mosquitoes. Not anymore! My husband sprays every few weeks and I don’t get bitten, and I read that cedar oil is rich in nitrogen which helps green the grass 🙂 We are saving up to install one of those sprinkler tanks so we are always protected.

  14. Dan

    We’ve used the PCO Choice per instructions this whole summer and the results are fantastic. It’s easy to do/use, and no more bug bites. Our cats like the yard almost as much as we do. It’s so easy, and no worries about poisons. I cannot thank you enough for such a superb product. We like it.

    Thank you guys!

    Hello there!!!

    I just wanted to say… You should make me your poster woman! lol 🙂 I love this stuff… Totally have a phobia of snakes and this has helped immensely… they aren’t totally gone, but at least I can walk up my front steps now… I just purchased more, this year.. because I used the last of it up last year (a little truly does go a long way!) and now I have family and friends who are all interesting in the products!! I will be placing another other later today to satisfy all those buggie folks! Thanks again for an awesome product!

  16. James S.

    No Star rating yet will return for that. Received this product Friday. I applied with an Ortho adjustable sprayer and was unsure how to set the rate for this hose end sprayer. I took a chance and set it at 2 ounces per gallon, hope that will be OK. Applied it this morning while grass was still wet from the dew, will let you know how it worked out. If you can, e-mail me and let me know the proper setting for the Ortho adjutable rate hose end sprayer. Thanks in advance.

    Have used it for 4 yrs now. Just applied the last of the bottle I had ordering more now. Does what it says works GREAT!!!

  18. Kate J (verified owner)

    We have 3 cats & are surrounded by 4 neighbors with dogs. Cats can go out to backyard to play, fencing keeps them from straying. None of the neighbors treats their yards for fleas, so we get LOTS especially in summer. We have used this over 5 years now, & along with combing, vacuuming & treating rugs they are down about 95-98%! The yard is treated every 2 weeks in summer, 3-4 weeks in winter. We spray the fruit trees, too. Added benefit is NO more snails, earwigs, beetles & way less spiders. Kitties recoil at scent of cedar oil so we dilute Best Yet a bunch & dip flea comb in that. Seems to still repel any that they might get by. Thank you for your awsome products!

  19. Dustin Baggenstoss

    We use PCO along with Cedar Granules (mulch), the original cedar shield, and tick shield. We use them at our hunter’s cabin in the woods and our suburban home. The aforementioned products are terrific!! They have reduced our bugs and spider at the suburban home by 98% and at our cabin in the woods by 95%. We love your products, thank you!

    Prior to using Cedarcide (my first time was in 2018) my three dogs would come from their mowed and cared for fenced yard with approximately 5-7 ticks each, either attached or crawling. I was completely disgusted and freaked out. I found Cedarcide. I ordered the yard kit with the cedar granules and applied it as soon as it arrived. Almost instantly, the ticks dropped to maybe one or two A WEEK vs. nearly 15 per day! I just reapplied and treated my lawn yesterday,. I’m completely sold, (and rarely write good or bad reviews) but this product deserves to be known by everyone. You’ve got a customer for life in New Hampshire!
