Get Rid of Scorpions Fast With the Aroma of Cedar
Scorpions, non-beneficial insects and venomous snakes instinctively react to pheromone (smell) and heat stimuli. To these undesirables the smell of cedar oil is unbearable agony. Our cedar oil active ingredient formula interferes with their octopamine neuroreceptors and impairs an insect's instinctual ability to detect food, mate, and reproduce. When insects' comfort levels are disturbed, they become disoriented and overwhelmed. To escape the discomfort, they relocate or die. Regular, continued use of this product will create a barrier of re-entry to treated areas, resulting in a scorpion and insect-free environment.
What the aroma of cedar does to scorpions could be compared to what the smell of ammonia does to humans. Insects can easily be overcome, with death as the final result. The aroma fumes from cedar rise upward into the air. Remember, if you can smell it six feet off the ground, so can the scorpions. That's why it creates an invisible barrier that keeps scorpions where you want them, away from you!
