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