How It Works

Greenbug all natural controls pests

Greenbug offers pest control products that are alternatives to toxic, synthetic pesticides. Greenbug can be used on pets, people, and property.

How does Greenbug work?

Greenbug works because of the active ingredient of cedar. Just like cedar chests and cedar closets where you never see a bug, cedar controls pests. Greenbug offers contact control AND pests don’t like cedar and will do all they can to get away!

Greenbug, through the active ingredient of cedar, controls all scent (or pheromone) driven pests which are pests that get their food through sense of smell. These are the pests we do not like – mosquitoes, fleas, ticks, no-see-ems, head lice, mites, bed bugs, roaches, ants and many more. Cedar has been used for centuries in pest control – cedar bedding, cedar closets, cedar siding, etc. so Greenbug puts it in a convenient, usable form.



Greenbug products have no effect on creatures that are sight-driven or that get their food source through the sense of sight. So using Greenbug does not harm humans, pets, birds, animals, and the very important pollinators like honey bees and butterflies. Greenbug has the ability to control pests and not harm others.


And unlike conventional chemical pesticides, Greenbug products control multiple life stages of pests – egg, larval, pupal, and adult stages. Why use toxic, synthetic chemicals when Greenbug controls pests?
