5 ways to explode your Lawn Care Or landscaping Business

Cedar oil is known for delivering superior results without harming clients, dogs or employees!

3. Keep Rodents from Entering Your customer's homes
Rodents are heat seekers. As the weather grows colder, they'll be looking for ways to enter cracks and crevices around the foundation of your customer's homes. Discourage rodents from nesting near structures by spreading cedar granules around the perimeter of sheds, garages and homes. Rodents absolutely HATE the smell of cedar, and pet hamster enthusiasts are advised not to use cedar bedding. Cedar does not have this effect upon dogs. In fact, dog houses are notoriously built of cedar wood to repel ticks and fleas. Cattle fences are built of cedar to resist termite infestation for up to 50 years!
4. CONTROL Termites Before they Begin to Invade Structures
There's a big reason why cedar shake siding is highly prized among builders seeking to erect cabins in termite infested forests. Termites generally avoid cedar wood. If they dare to ingest it, the phenol compounds will kill the internal parasite responsible for digesting cellulose and result in the death of the termite. If you encounter termites while working in a client's yard, suggest an application of cedar granules, as it could only be a matter of time before these hungry critters begin to invade various structures on the property. Even if your customer is currently using their own pesticides to battle termites, the benefits of adding granules are clear. Cedar granules keep giving off pest controlling aromas for months! Each time it rains, supercharged fluids flowing from the granules will deliver a fresh shot of phenol compounds to the soil.
5. LEAVE PEST CONTROL Fliers BEHIND!
Make your regular clients aware that you're now in the organic pest control business. They may not need your services today, but they'll remember you when insect issues arise. Even if you currently use chemical pesticides, many of your customers will be delighted to know that organic options are available.
More About Cedar Oil
Cedar oil is a BASE NOTE. In the world of aroma therapy and perfume making, the "note" of an oil refers to the rate at which the oil evaporates. The top note is the first scent you detect in a perfume blend. The base note is the lingering essence that stays with you long after the top note has faded. (Common top notes include orange and lemon.) For this reason, organic mosquito repellents often mix top notes such as orange or lemon into a base of cedar to prolong pest controlling effects. Indeed, we've sold thousands upon thousands of gallons to pest control proprietors who make their own private label blends.
A BriEF History of Cedar Oil
The power of cedar oil has been well documented throughout the ages. As a destroyer of bacteria and parasites that break down flesh, it was a prized substance used by the Egyptians in the mummification process. For centuries, it has been used as a holistic treatment for a variety of skin conditions caused by bacterial and fungal organisms. Early American settlers blanketed their cabins with cedar needles to repel insects, rodents and snakes. Even today, cedar oil is a very popular organic pesticide for commercial crops and vegetable gardens. Dog houses and cattle fences are still built with cedar wood, which naturally resists decay and pest infestation for 50 years or more.
