Contains: Active Ingredient: d-Limonene-orange peel extract-5.8%. Inert ingredients-not listed-94.2%. May be used around humans, food and pets.

From the Manufacturer

Orange Guard, Inc. was formed by Carmel Valley resident and inventor, Tor McPartland, who was looking for an alternative to conventional insecticides. The inspiration for Orange Guard came from McPartland's desire to find an alternative to these insecticides which have the potential of long-term health and environmental dangers. In 1984, McPartland read an article in Science News, where someone had taken citrus hand cleaner and poured it down a fire ant hill. Every ant was killed. "If you ever look at oranges, you'll notice that the peels are never bitten into by anything," says McPartland. "Orange peel is a natural repellent." Starting in 1985, McPartland spent the next 14 years in research and development efforts, including extensive testing and certification for safety and effectiveness. In May 1998, McPartland introduced his first product to consumers. That product was Orange Guard, a water based indoor/outdoor insecticide that may be used around food, humans and pets. Made from d-Limonene (orange peel extract) and inert ingredients, Orange Guard is EPA-registered and now available to consumers. Works naturally on ants, fire ants, roaches, fleas, silverfish, aphids, spider mites, leaf hoppers, scale insects, and other insect pests.

Customer Reviews

It has a very strong smell like burning orange.
SARAH
I do not recommend this product to get rid nor repel fleas; I can't attest to whether or not it will be effective against other insects.
Rosie
Not only didn't the product "kill on contact," but the ants sprayed with the product continued to walk around for the next week.

Orange Guard really works. It's fantastic for not just killing those bugs when they appear but I have used it around my kitchen sink and on the counter tops (without fear of the chemicals being around the food I eat) when I had an ant problem. Within a couple of days, the ants were gone for good. I have also successfully used it on roaches, spiders and crickets. It has a great citrus scent that almost wants to make you use it for air freshener (just kidding, but it does smell good!)

I haven't used it outside, though, so I can't say how well it works there.

I used this all over my kitchen for ants. It kills on contact, if you spray enough on the ants. When I sprayed and then later wipe off the excess, as the bottle instructed, the ants walked all over the counters within minutes. I thought it didn't work well. Now, I know how to use it. I spray all the cracks and crevices where they are coming in. I make sure plenty of it gets into the cracks. That works just like a barrier for them. My husband puts it under the dog's food bowl and it keeps them from swarming her food. Believe me, they swarm her food every night when we don't have Orange Guard. We just had an army of them attack the dogs food tin. I took the 5-gallon tin out and sprayed all around it. The ants that got sprayed died, the other ants dared not cross the Orange Guard, so I had a bunch of ants huddled together on the lid of the tin.

If you are chemically sensitive, have pets or children, it's likely you have problems with typical ant/bug killers, even "odorless" ones that claim they're safe once they're dry.

Orange Guard has been my staple indoor pesticide for at least six years. I've tried other "natural" orange pesticides, notably one by Ortho available in stores like Lowes. Instant headache. My sinuses picked up the trace of petroliate so minor it's not even listed. (I inquired -- the nose knew.)

Orange Guard has nothing but orange. My cats can blithely walk through the spray and while felines aren't citrus fans, they can proceed to lick themselves silly and nothing bad is going to happen.

Natural products do not have the staying power of serious chemical pesticides and you can't expect them to. During the current heatwave, a morning invasion of ants through kitchen plumbing crevices is normal. I've been comparing Orange Guard with another natural insecticide (pyrethrins) via Safer Tomato & Vegetable pesticide. Pyrethrins is also considered safe for use around food and animals. The odor is minor, inoffensive, and causes no twitching of the sinuses. However, the spray will keep ants out only an hour or two when their invasion is of Normandy-proportions. Orange Guard holds up 6-12 hours. In normal usage -- when ants aren't as desperate -- it lasts several days and that's usually long enough for them to look for more friendly places to live.

If you like citrus, the fragrance is wonderful, pure and fresh. Leftovers (year-old Orange Guard) should be used outdoors because the smell strengthens and becomes somewhat obnoxious -- just like aging oranges. But you can avoid that by using it as an air freshner or wiping your wood furniture with it.

D-limonene is an essential oil from citrus plants (i.e., orange peel, hence the lovely smell). Please note that d-limonene is NOT safe for cats. I published a case in the Journal of American Veterinary Medical Association about a rare feline toxicity (with a resultant fatality) from using d-limonene shampoo on a cat (which was advertised as a "natural" flea shampoo). Cats do not tolerate any essential oils (i.e., liquid potpourri, holistic medications, etc.), and should be used with caution. While this may be safe for dogs, it isn't recommended for cats. When in doubt, you can call an animal poison control like Pet Poison Helpline ([...]) if you're not sure if the product is toxic or poisonous.

Reading both the positive and negative reviews on Amazon and elsewhere and hearing mixed comments from my neighbors, I decided to test the effectiveness of the product.

According to the product website, the product was created after the inventor noticed that ants and other insects were repelled by orange peels. He set about trying to mimic this effect by producing a concentrated spray-on product that contained one of the organic oils contained in orange peel - in this case, d-limonene.

Test: Kills On Contact

I had set up a quarantine environment just to test the product, which the ants couldn't escape from - essentially a large, glass-enclosed and sealed ant farm. Then I sprayed ants in the farm with the product, resealed the environment, and watched what happened.

Not only didn't the product "kill on contact," but the ants sprayed with the product continued to walk around for the next week. I didn't test beyond that: I discarded the quarantine environment, after concluding the product did not kill ants.

Test: Repels Ants

For this test I used surfaces in my home which were heavily traveled by ants: the kitchen counters and the bathroom walls and floors. Before each test, all surfaces were cleaned using soap and water, then thoroughly rinsed and dried.

As a control, I used 16 quarter peels of navel orange, which had been separated from the flesh, which I spread on surfaces before using the product. Ants avoided areas where the peels had been placed, staying on average 6 feet away from a piece of peel.

After removing the peels from a given area and rewashing, rinsing and drying the surfaces, I then sprayed the product on the surfaces and watched what happened.
