"A year after tenting, they just wanted to tent again with those toxic chemicals. Thanks to Cedar Bug Free Termiticide we were able to do it ourselves and save a fortune. A year after soaking all the wood trusses and ceiling beams in the attic, we still don’t see signs of termite activity."
“I have termites in my house, I tried tenting but the termites came back the next year. Is there an alternative to tenting that continues to work a long time?”

“After the third time tenting our house for termites, I knew we had to find some other way…”

Termites can destroy your home
Tenting is expensive and damaging
Wood riddled with the damage caused by termites, powder post beetles, and carpenter ants and bees is becoming more and more common. Most homes are built with wood that is vulnerable to termite infestation. Many wooden structures that took weeks to design and months to build become nothing more than sawdust in the hourglass of time when left untreated. Exterminating termites often requires special safety measures to avoid poisoning people and pets and the chemicals used are harmful to the environment. There is a better way to do it yourself and eliminate termites for the long haul. By using Eastern Red Cedar Oil and other natural ingredients, an alternative termite control product has been developed from the wisdom of Nature.
Cedar Bug-Free™ Termiticide kills drywood termites, subterranean Formosan termites, powder post beetles, carpenter bees, carpenter ants, and other wood boring pests and then continues to work as a repellant and wood protector by lowering water content. It provides long lasting termite control, leaving a pleasant Cedar scent.
How it Works
When termites and other wood pests are exposed to Cedar Bug-Free™ Termiticide the aroma of the cedar oil overwhelms their breathing system and triggers a suicide response—the spiracles (breathing pores) close and cannot re-open. The cedar oil dissolves the insect eggs and larvae, eliminating the next generation, while the aroma of cedar disrupts pheromone signals and creates a barrier of entry to newly arriving pests. You can do your own home, because you do not need a special license. Cedar Bug-Free™ Termiticide is more effective than other natural insecticides, and is longer lasting.
Wood Moisture Content
Trees circulate water continually from root to leaf. When sawed into usable lumber, some moisture remains in the wood. A drying period seasons the wood and allows some of this moisture to evaporate, yet some water remains in the wood. Wood pest insects, mold, and bacteria have a threshold level of moisture that must be present in the wood for the organism to live. Lowering the moisture content of wood protects it from damage caused by termites, mold and bacteria.
How to Use It
Apply to all sides where possible, paying particular attention to cuts and ends of pieces. Apply three coats directly to all unfinished, stained, varnished or painted surfaces using a compression sprayer, air or airless paint gun, brush or roller. It is easily applied using a low pressure or garden sprayer, and it may be used indoors or outdoors. Ensure adequate ventilation when using in closed areas. Drying is best accomplished in the heat of the day. Read More...
CAUTION: AVOID CONTACT WITH EYES; if contact occurs, flush with water for at least 15 minutes. KEEP OUT OF THE REACH OF CHILDREN. In case of ingestion consult a physician.
About the Ingredients
Cedar Bug-Free™ Termiticide is formulated from all natural food grade ingredients that are Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS) - 10% pure Eastern Red Cedar Oil and 90% Hydrated Silica (not the dangerous crystalline silica) and White Mineral Oil. There are no artificial fragrances, colorants or preservatives and no animal by-products or animal testing.
Eastern Red Cedar Oil is extracted from a species of juniper found in North America east of the Great Plains called Juniperus virginiana. The oil is distilled from the trunk and branches, and is considered safe by the US FDA as a food additive. This oil kills bacteria, fungi, and wood eating insects.
Hydrated Silica is a form of silicon dioxide, also known as silicic acid when dissolved in water and, in its solid form, is mined as the gemstone Opal. Hydrated Silica is used in toothpaste, desiccant Silica gel, and is used in the production of beer. In its pure form it is chemically inert. Hydrated Silica is listed by the US FDA as “Generally Recognized As Safe”.
Natural Mineral Oil is a by-product of petroleum distillation and is made of alkanes and cyclic paraffins. Used as a wood preservative, a coat of this oil provides a durable finish without the odor or toxicity of varnish or urethane. Our Mineral Oil is food grade and of the highest quality.
Cedar Bug-Free™ Termiticide is classified as a Minimum Risk Pesticide by the US EPA and qualifies for exemption from registration under the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act.
