Dr. Ben’s Ingredients

What’s in Dr. Ben’s Evictor? What are the active and inactive ingredients in the formula?


  • Our organic indoor formula contains 10% cedar oil and 90% hydrated silica. Silica is the name given to a group of minerals composed of silicon and oxygen. The cosmetic industry frequently uses silica to promote superior penetration of the active ingredients in hair and skin products. Silica is the carrier agent that helps our product penetrate the exoskeleton of insects to deliver the active ingredient more effectively. Since mites and insects breathe through pores outside their bodies, this is particularly important. Note that our indoor product is especially formulated not to stain clothing, carpets, curtains and furniture. Since the formula is premixed, you should not add water.
  • Our outdoor formula contains 85% cedar oil and 10% ethyl lactate (an organic solvent derived from corn). Note that the outdoor product is a concentrate. One quart makes eight gallons of solution for the treatment of yards, barns and vegetable gardens. Since oil and water tend to separate rather quickly, ethyl lactate helps the solution stay mixed for even coverage of wide areas. The formula is specifically designed to combat insects that destroy food crops without harming vegetation. The outdoor formula is also very popular with dog breeders and pet owners who wish to control a wide range of parasites in the grass. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!


What Makes Our Organic Indoor Formula Powerful and Unique?

  • Can be used as a direct hit spray to destroy common household insects you see!
  • Erodes the exoskeleton of insects that crawl through treated areas, contributing to the early demise of insects you don’t see.
  • Repels a wide variety of insects and discourages new insects from moving into treated territory for up to a month.
  • Dissolves eggs on contact, but not by proximity. In other words, eggs must come in contact with the formula, not just the vapors.
  • Won’t stain carpets, bedding or furniture because it’s steam distilled in small batches to remove impurities.
  • Spreads nicely over wide areas because it’s not mixed with water. (Our formula contains a special organic solvent that helps it stay mixed. Normally, oil and water will always separate, producing very uneven results when distributed over wide areas. That’s why it’s so difficult to treat wide surfaces with essential oils that are sold in tiny bottles at health stores.)
  • Can be applied directly to humans, dogs and horses.
  • Is endorsed by Animal Wellness Magazine as a safe alternative to dangerous chemical and spot drop flea treatments, which shorten life spans and cause SEVERE reactions in more than 44,000 animals each year.  Read more…
  • Is used by housing authorities across the country against bedbugs because these hearty parasites have an uncanny ability to develop resistance to chemical pesticides.
