Insect Repellents: Mimicking Nature To Ward Off Pests Safely
ISCA provides a safer, proactive approach for protecting crops, forests and urban areas.
Using insect repellents to drive away pests before they attack is a smart plan of action. However, many traditional repellents contain harmful chemicals. ISCA provides a line of safe and environmentally friendly insect repellents that pose no threat to human health or the environment.
How Do Natural Insect Repellents Work?
In nature, insects rely on the semiochemical cues of trees and plants to determine whether the plant will make a viable host or not. These semiochemicals provide a wealth of information that modulates the behavior of insects—including which trees and plants to avoid. ISCA utilizes these same semiochemicals to repel insect pests.
