Does Outdoor Bug Control work against all bugs?

Outdoor Bug Control is third-party tested for fleas, ticks, mosquitoes, ants, mites, chiggers, Japanese beetles, roaches, wasps, and scorpions. However, our products have been popular for a larger range of pests for over 20 years.

How often should I apply?

For your first application each year, apply twice two weeks apart. Then just monthly after that. Repeat applications until freezing temps return.

Is it safe to use around pets and children?

Absolutely! Outdoor Bug Control is non-toxic, family-safe, and pet-friendly when used as directed. No downtime is required—people and pets can re-enter the lawn immediately after application.

Is it safe for pollinators like bees or butterflies?

Yes, Outdoor Bug Control will not deter bees or butterflies. For optimal results, follow the instructions, use as directed, and apply in the morning or evening when pollinators are less active.

Is Outdoor Bug Control the same thing as PCO Choice?

It sure is! We recently updated the name of PCO Choice to Outdoor Bug Control but it’s the same great lawn spray.

What’s the difference between the cedarwood and lemongrass options?

Both are equally effective at controlling unwanted bugs, so it all depends on your scent preference. Cedarwood is classic and earthy (think cedar closet or chest) and lemongrass is brighter and more citrus-like.



Insert the straw into the hose-end sprayer lid and attach the lid to the hose. Set dial to OFF.


Pour 4 oz. Cedarcide Outdoor Bug Control into the hose-end sprayer reservoir and add 22 oz. warm water. Attach the reservoir to the lid and shake well.


Turn your hose to full pressure and switch the dial to ON. Spray your lawn and other vegetation using slow, even strokes (1 reservoir treats approx. 5,000 sq. ft. before emptying).

If this is your first application, repeat again in two weeks. Then, apply monthly or more often as needed. For best results, apply in the morning or evening.

If rain is expected in the next 24-48 hours, wait to apply Outdoor Bug Control until the weather has passed and the soil is mostly dry. Re-application after heavy rain may be necessary.
