Oranges Guard’s formula has an Organic Materials Review Institute listing.(OMRI is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization created to benefit the organic community and the general public). Insects can’t generate an inherited or acquired immunity to Orange Guard like they can with chemical insecticides since it does not affect their nervous system. It works by literally dissolving the outer cells of the insect’s exoskeleton and suffocation occurs. It repels insects because the dried Orange Guard spray enters into the insect’s air passages and irritation and pain occurs. It is safe to use on plants and above all safe for humans and pets.
