OMAHA, Neb., May 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Sergeant's(R) Pet Care Products,
Inc. introduces Sergeant's(R) Nature's Guardian(TM), an innovative new
natural pest control product line for cats and dogs clinically proven to
kill and repel pests like fleas, ticks and mosquitoes.
While certain other natural pest control products currently on the
market claim to repel insects, Sergeant's Nature's Guardian is the first
natural formulation from a major pet products manufacturer clinically shown
to also kill these pests that cause so much trouble for pets and their
owners. Clinical data show that Sergeant's Nature's Guardian products kill
or repel high percentages of insects within the first 24 hours and have
efficacy rates comparable to some of the leading conventional flea and tick
"Sergeant's Nature's Guardian products are designed to satisfy a
growing demand for natural pet care products," says Joel Adamson, senior
vice president of business development and marketing services, Sergeant's
Pet Care Products. "Sergeant's Nature's Guardian flea and tick products are
not only proven to be effective, they are also formulated with all low-risk
components, so parents and pet owners can take comfort in knowing that
these products are labeled to be safe for use around children and pets when
used according to directions."
Sergeant's Nature's Guardian products are formulated using natural
botanical extracts as active ingredients, a unique combination of plant
oils that demonstrate pesticidal activity, including such ingredients as
peppermint oil, cinnamon oil, lemon grass oil and thyme oil.
The active ingredients such as those found in Sergeant's Nature's
Guardian have been determined to be low risk to humans and the environment.
As a result, the Sergeant's Nature's Guardian products do not require U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) registration as controlled
pesticides. The same plant oils used in Sergeant's Nature's Guardian are
classified as "Generally Recognized As Safe" (GRAS) by the U.S. Food and
Drug Administration (FDA) and thus can be used as food additives for
Adamson says the key ingredients in Sergeant's Nature's Guardian
products are some of the same botanical ingredients trees and plants use to
defend against harmful insects. The product formulations were developed by
Sergeant's using patented technology licensed from EcoSMART Technologies, a
world leader in natural pesticide products.
"We are delighted to team up with Sergeant's to produce a full line of
natural pest control products for pets, a product line that is both safe
and effective," says EcoSMART's founder and president, Steven Bessette.
The Sergeant's Nature's Guardian product line includes on-animal
squeeze-on topicals, sprays and powders for both dogs and cats. The product
line also includes a carpet powder and household spray. Following shipment
in June, Sergeant's Nature's Guardian products will be sold nationwide at
