CHARLOTTE, N.C., July 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Organic Plant Health, Inc. (OTCQB: OPHI), a manufacturer and distributor of organic-based, hybrid and environmentally responsible fertilizers, soil conditioners and pest controls, is pleased to announce that independent laboratory efficacy testing is now complete on the new and improved formula for Eco-Cedar™, the company's all-natural, bed bug and insect control product. The results of the independent scientific testing conclude that Eco-Cedar™ is 100% effective at controlling bed bugs on contact.
"This report shows the quality and effectiveness of our products while staying environmentally and biologically safe" stated Organic Plant Health President and CEO, Billy Styles. Styles goes on to say, "Credibility is critical for our success as we expand into new markets and more retail stores along the east coast. Our retail partners and customers want to know that natural and organic products work as well as their chemical counterparts." Styles continues, "I have personally used this new Eco-Cedar™ formulation numerous times on a variety of insects and I have always been impressed with the results. It is safe for use around the home, children, pets and the environment, which makes it a great alternative to some of the harsh chemical products commonly used today. It's simply a great product. I'd like to see it in every home and on every store shelf in America."
The U.S. bed bug control market potential is approximately $350 Million per year, growing at a rate of more than 5% annually. Some sources suggest estimates of double-digit growth are possible in the near future. Organic Plant Health's Eco-Cedar™ contains a proprietary blend of components that make this particular formula unique. It has specific insect control properties, while posing little or no threat to humans or the environment. As such, the product is exempt from registration by the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency), according to rule 25 (b) of the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act.
Alan Talbert, company Vice President and COO, stated, "We're very excited about this new product. We believe there is tremendous market potential for the new Eco-Cedar™ throughout the U.S., and also in Canada, Mexico, South America and Europe. Eco-Cedar™ is a product that can cross all demographic and socio-economic market segments."
Organic Plant Health plans to launch its' new Eco-Cedar™ formulation in the coming weeks and is currently working on a variety of additional new products for the home and garden sector.
