HOW IT WORKS: The Secret is Cedar Oil
The AutoBugg Irrigation Injection Unit is a cedar oil injection system that works in conjunction with your home irrigation system to repel bugs, and with recurring applications of cedar oil, can stop their life cycle completely.
What exactly is cedar oil and how do we use it?
Cedar oil, also known as cedarwood oil, is an essential oil derived from various types of conifers, most in the pine or cypress botanical families. It is produced from the foliage, and sometimes the wood, roots, and stumps which have been left after cutting of trees for timber extraction. It has many uses in medicine, art, industry and perfumery, and while the characteristics of oils derived from various species may themselves vary, all have bactericidal and pesticidal effects. [wikipedia]
Our AutoBugg system utilizes the cedar oil's pesticidal properties creating a protective scent barrier around your home that will repel unwanted pests such as mosquitoes, ticks, fleas, and mites. With repetitive applications and the proper coverage provided by your automatic sprinkler system, the AutoBugg Injection system provides a safe, all-natural way to rid your property of annoying and potentially dangerous insects.
Cedar trees, also known as mountain cedar, or juniperous mexicana, is a "drought-tolerant tree, native to northeastern Mexico and south-central United States north to southern Missouri," and some of the even larger areas are in central and southern Texas. [wikipedia]
The picture above of Garner State Park in Concan, Texas is not only the most popular state park for overnight camping, but just one of the many areas where an abundance of these beautiful cedar trees grow; and while these trees are beautiful when maintained, they are major water-hogs. When left unchecked, they grow like weeds, leaving all the surrounding foliage fighting for water. Utilizing these trees for their rot-proof wood for fencing and building materials, and breaking them down to their basic chemical compounds of cedrol and thujopsene, they become more useful to our every day lives, as well as allowing the other parts of the forests to thrive and provide for the nature around them.
