Our popular Cedar Granules are a 100% natural approach to protect your lawn, home, and family from harmful bugs. Here are 5 of our favorites:
Prevent Bugs from Entering Your Yard & Home
A layer of Cedar Granules spread along your home’s foundation and fence line creates a powerful defense against fleas, ants, mites, and other biting insects.
Keep Potted Plants Bug-Free
Adding a handful of granules to your potted plants every few months is a simple way to keep them free of annoying pests like spider mites.
Shield Your Lawn & Garden from Damaging Pests
Spreading Cedar Granules throughout your lawn & garden protects it from damaging insects without harsh chemicals.
Protect Your Clothes from Moths
Hanging a sock full of Cedar granules in your closet acts like a cedar chest. Bye-bye moths.
Keep Pests Off Your Pups
Placing a few handfuls of granules inside your dog’s bed helps deter fleas, mites, mosquitoes, and more.
Emerging from eggs laid on clothing, furniture, and carpet, carpet beetle larvae can ruin a closetful of clothes in no time, especially natural items like wool, fur, mohair and more.
What to look for: Small beetles for adults (most commonly black or brown, sometimes multicolored), and small caterpillar-like larvae (usually brownish red, covered in fine hairs).
Infamous for leaving holes in clothing, moth larvae feed on wool, flannel, fur, and almost any other textile that’s dirty or recently used (sweat, food, skin oils, etc are all appetizing to these destructive pests).
What to look for: Whitish worm-like larvae with a hard outer shell, and very small white or gold-colored moths for adults.
Silverfish and Firebrats
These close relatives are both expert clothing destroyers, preferring starched items, natural fibers like rayon, silk, and cotton, and those stained with sugary food and drink.
What to look for: Silver wingless insects with carrot-shaped bodies about ¼ inch long.
While they don’t usually eat clothing on purpose, roaches are attracted to the sweat, and food spills that end up on our clothing. When consuming these items, they often create holes and stain fabrics with excrement.
Like roaches, crickets eat clothing stains not clothing itself. Small holes and tears, not to mention cricket poop, can easily lead to hundreds of dollars in damage in only a few weeks.
Store Items Correctly
That means freshly cleaned, starch-free, and in a cool, dry place in tightly sealed containers or nylon bags (leather and fur items require breathable bags, such as cotton).
Regularly cleaning and vacuuming rugs, carpets, draperies, baseboards, furniture, and storage closets substantially lowers your risk of clothes-eating pests by removing eggs, larvae, and the debris they need to survive. Dispose of the bag when finished.
Naturally Kill & Repel
Hang freshly dried lavender or Cedar Granules inside of a stocking in your chosen storage area to protect against damaging bugs. A cedar-based spray like Cedarcide Original can also be used throughout the space to kill and repel.
For already infested items: try washing & drying them, freezing them for 48 hours, or treating them with a fabric-safe insecticide like Cedarcide Original.
