                                  Active Ingredients                                            Cedarwood Oil..........................85%    25b active

                        Ethyl Lactate...........................  15%    4a inactive                                                                                                                                                                 TOTAL:...................................    100%                                                                                                                                        

How this Product Works:The aroma of cedar oil is lethal to NON-BENEFICIAL insects which are driven by pheromone (odor) and heat stimuli. Cedar oil stifles the ability of the insect’s receptors to detect food, mates, and disrupts its reproduction habitats. When comfort levels are destroyed, insects become overwhelmed and relocate to areas of concentration where sight driven predators such as birds, lizards, and beneficial insects will control infestations. Insect displacement interrupts the "egg lying cycle" eliminating a new generation of arthropod. Continued use of this product will create a barrier of re-entry, leaving a pest free landscape.   Unlike synthetic chemical pesticides, Natures Defender Professional Formula does not neutralize insects by poisoning. But acts in one or a combination of the following ways to kill them:

(1)Osmotic Dehydration Natures Defender Professional Formula leaches the insects and eggs body from moisture and dehydrates them                                                                                          

(2)Prevention of Breathing: By irritating the respiratory system of the insects, especially those with high olfactory. Natures Defender Professional Formula forces insects to avoid breathing, shutting down to avoid the extremely powerful irritants.                                                                                    

(3)Pheromone Interference: that interrupts and attacks the octopamine neuro-receptors, crucial for neurotransmitter’s regulation of metabolism, movement, feeding, reproduction and behavior.      

(4)Dissolving Insect Eggs, Larvae, Pupae, and Eroding the Exoskeleton and Cuticle of Adult Insects, thus exposing the inner delicate parts of the insects for their demise. This demise which disrupts the Egg-layer cycles helps control the next generation of insects.           

Flea & Tick Control: Natures Defender kills and or repels, adults, eggs, larvae, nymphs of crawling insects

Ø  For the control of ticks, we use a dilution of 4 ounces to 1 gallon water – Spreading Cedar Granules enhances the spray by adding an additional layer of repellency

Ø  For normal outdoor insect control, we use 2 ounces to 1 gallon water

Thoroughly spray areas which insects are usually found -  bushes, trees (including fruit), wood piles, turf, garden areas, playgrounds paying attention underneath shrubs and trees.

There are multiple dilution rates for the Natures Defender Professional Formula.   

Lower rates are adequate for maintenance agenda’s and higher rates would be acceptable for active infestations.     

Fire Ant Management:                                                                                                                          Application rate:  dilute 4 fluid oz. per gallon of water.                                                            Recommended equipment:  backpack, compressed air, pump or power sprayer until foliage is thoroughly pet.

1) Apply 1 gallon of the pre-mixed formulation to each mound                                                                                                                                                                

2) Spray a 4 foot diameter around the mound,                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  

3) Applicator should concentrate on the opening of the mound (if possible)

4) Recommendation - spread cedar granules in a 4 foot diameter circle around the mound   


Dr. Ben's along with Natures Defender's product lines are the alternative to using Toxic, Chemical based flea & tick control products.

Why do people continue to treat their pets?

Fleas & Ticks come from your own lawn! Treat your lawn and solve the Flea & Tick problem.

Our products perform three critical functions for controlling insects in your environment.

1. It kills, neutralizes or repels the existing adult insect population.

2. It eliminates the next generation of insects the eggs and larvae by dehydrating the exoskeleton and then interrupting the egg layer cycle.

3. It creates a barrier of re-entry deterring insects migrating from other areas into your area of concern. Perpetual egg layers are immediately controlled because of this barrier, if the adults won’t enter the treated area, then they can’t or won’t lay any eggs. This barrier then results in controlling the insect populations in treated area.

Now you can control the fleas & ticks on your pets and inside your homes because you have treated the real PROBLEM the back yard.

For most pet owners, the family dog or cat is a beloved member of the family. Unfortunately, products often used to protect pets from fleas and ticks carry serious health hazards -- not just for the pets, but for the children who play with them, care for them, and love them. Safer alternatives are available -- alternatives that will effectively protect pets from insects without introducing intolerable health hazards into the home.

Are "Spot-On" Flea Killers Safe?

Americans are passionate about their pets, and as they become increasingly aware of the Spot Drop Therapy travesty, PAWS & CLAWS will reverse the public mind set, and change the complexion of our Animal Health industry.

Our product either kills neutralizes or repels fleas, ticks, lice and mites; those parasites that continually plague our domestic mammals, dogs and cats, and an array of farm, equine and other live-stocks. Spot-On treatments have been known to trigger adverse reactions in some dogs and cats.

DR. BEN'S PAWS & CLAWS is also effective in addressing other Animal Health issues other than flea control. Hot Spots and Mange are easily eliminated by periodic treatments. The proprietary formulation penetrates the infected areas, destroys the burrowing mite infestation, and delivers natural healing properties to the infected epidermal skin layer. This product is effective against Ear Mites.

Flea allergy dermatitis canalso be brought under control. Treatment with PAWS & CLAWS will restore hair growth in days, and stimulates new, healthy skin. Our Bio solution creates an instant metabolic reaction that triggers a suffocation response in the parasite.Our Pet ProductsNatures Defender Hose End SprayerVets Choice ConcentrateVets Choice Concentrate 1Gal

To whom it may concern. I did the barrel soaking trick you recommend for getting rid of fleas on dogs. It works. I have a Albino Shepherd and as you may or may not know they are plagued with dry skin issues. To make matters worse, because they are white they attract every flea in the county. At first Whitey wasn't so sure about the soak but after a few minutes he learned to like it. I can honestly say, he looks forward to the periodic dips he gets and sometimes will go and sit by the barrel hoping I will put him in to soak. The cedar oil moistens his skin which before would tighten up and crack. There is not a flea on him and his hair is gorgeous. This dog has won many trophies in his 10 years even though it is recommended that albinos be eliminated at birth. Just wanted to let you know that the Pet Horse Livestock concentrate is a awesome product. I will send you a photo.

To Doctor Ben

I wish I had talked to you five years ago. If I had used NATURES DEFENDER my life would be different today. I am so sorry, I just didn't know the consequences of listening to money hungry Veterinarians.
I got Niklas as a puppie in 2002. A beautiful male Silver Sable German Shepherd. He helped me through the the rough times I had as a middle aged widow. What a dog he was. I did everything right with him, so I thought. The Vet gave him his shots, put him on a science diet and prescribed a regiment of Spot Drops to keep the fleas off him. But I was so wrong. Niklas died young at 5 years. I was heartbroken. I became obsessed with finding out what killed him. My Vet avoided me and objected when I asked for a autopsy. He would not do it. He became extremely angry with me when I took Niklas's body to the University. Now I know why. The autopsy confirmed that I had killed my beloved Niklas. I cried for weeks. Now I am on a mission to save other dogs from unknowingly being killed by their masters. A mission that makes every Vet in the country cringe. And rightfully so. I killed Niklas by using Frontline Spot Drops on him. I actually induced thyroid cancer in him with the chemical called Fipronil. And I also exposed myself to the same carcinigen. I murdered my friend and companion of five years. I will never get over that.

Perhaps I can help save someone else from the horrible guilt I must live with.
Please post this to the Testimonial page of your website with a link to the following publication related to the use of Frontline, Advantage, Adams, Bio Spot, Defend and Zodiac Spot on Pesticides. I am sure there are many more I didn't name. This is a multibillion dollar revenue stream for the Chemical Companies and the Vets of America are their partners in crime. After talking to you Dr. Ben, I see how foolish I was. The theory of using my Niklas as a magnet for fleas and letting him kill them for me using poisons in his blood stream is downright stupid. One spray of PAWS & CLAWS kills them instantly and does a pretty good job of keeping them off for many days. I know because I now have a new Niklas in my life and rest assured, the local Vet will never see the likes of me or Niklas II anywhere other than the courthouse. Incidentally, I drive by his clinic everyday on the way to work. He has a flashing sign that says "Get Your Frontline Here". My advice to folks reading this testimonial, print a copy of the following publicationhttp://www.apnm.org/publications/resources/fleachemfin.pdf and confront your Vet with it immediately. Quit using the Spot on Drops . As for you Dr. Ben, perhaps you need to step up and tell the World what you have known for years about these chemicals ! Silence is not noble!

Hello......I recieved my gallon of flea killer late yesterday. I sprayed my three dogs immediately and it instantly killed the fleas on them. WOW. That Cedar Oil is lethal to fleas. I was using that store bought spray but it never killed the fleas. It just moved them around on the dog and made them bite more. When I sprayed the fleas they were dead before it hit them. I checked this morning to make sure it wasn't a dream. Where there used to be fleas on their belly and in their leg pits and groin area, not a flea. I checked their back side, ears and tails, no fleas. For the first time in weeks they slept all night. Good stuff that cedar oil. The dogs really shine and smell good. Why don't the Vets know about this product ? It would be much better treatment than what they now use that does not work.

You were right Dr. Ben, you told me the bombs were a waste of money and they would not kill the fleas. My husband would not believe me and went to some exterminator supply store and bought a whole case of them. They assured him that they would easily kill the fleas. They told him it was the same stuff that Terminex and Orkin used. He let off all twelve at once in different rooms. So much for that. Never killed the first flea anywhere. Just aggravated them and caused them to breed. I used the gallon that came in the in-door flea eradication KIT and that neat sprayer. Killed them all in one sitting. Smells good in the house now. The Cedar covered up all the horrible chemical smell the bombs left behind. Now if I can get over the horrible sinus infection I got from the bombs I will learn to live again. My doctor suggested I not use insect control chemicals in the house. He said they cause a lot of problems with the immune system in people and their animals. Says he canceled his exterminator contract years ago. He has my undivided attention. I'll just use the cedar oil. It really works good. Thanks for helping me Ben.

I just wanted to pass this tid bit of infomation on to folks that have dogs suffering from Ear Mites. Several good streams of cedar oil into the ear canal along with a quick ear massage put a end to my Shepherds suffering. I could tell he got instant relief from the treatment. I had already killed every flea on him using the product. Perhaps this news will help someone else who is experiencing a ear mite problem with their dog.

Good morning... Just wanted to drop you a line and let you know we are having a Flea Free Day at the Jackson home. It is the first in many months thanks to your wonderful products. I don't ever want to live again the horrible flea infestation we had in the yard that then migrated to the house. Not only was it embarrassing, it was costly. When I look back at all of the useless trips I made with the dogs and cats to the Vet and the countless return treatments the exterminator charged me for, I want to vomit. For years I paid dearly for a insect control service I never really received. At days end there is no doubt that the stuff they were spraying was either water or something the fleas were immune to. He got fired. In any event, problem solved. Not only did the PCO Choice you sold me get rid of the fleas, it killed the mosquitoe and a bunch of other pests. I use the Best Yet on the animals and they love it. Keep up the good work Dr. Ben. Life is good, again.

To everyone at Cedar oil......Thanks for helping me through my flea deliemma. As I told that lovely lady Danae on the phone, I raise show dogs for a living. Somehow my Kennel got a flea infestation and life for my babies and me has been miserable ever since. Not any more. Danae let me talk to Dr. Ben about the horrible sores the fleas had created in the dogs leg pits and groin area. He was right when he said the cedar oil would help heal the areas if I would just use it liberally in the sockets. It makes me wonder what I am paying my high dollar Vet for. He had me spraying some chemical on them three times a day and all it did was make the dogs uptight. Never did kill one flea. I know after talking to Dr. Ben it was a nerve agent of some sort that the fleas have long been immune to. The only nervous system it attacked was that of my dogs. Believe it or not, they now sleep all night ! I have been raising show dogs for twenty years and have never found anything that will work like your Cedar Oil products do. I dare you to find a flea on any of my dogs after using the PAWS & CLAWS. It is a awesome product. It really does kill them instantly. I know now why the Army chose it above all of the rest for killing the fleas in Iraq. Tell Dr. Ben thanks for helping me. He is a Prince.

Letter from Ravenwood Estates Equine Center

To Cedar Oil… It was late summer of last year, when Renee’ West, my boss and developer of Ravenwood Estates, advised me that we would be trying some new pest control products at the Equestrian Center to replace the Pyrethrum-based repellants in our misting system and elsewhere. I was raised around horses and have worked with them most of my life. It’s my responsibility to care for these very expensive horses… owned by some wealthy homeowners… in this exclusive subdivision. And, now I’m dealing with the West Nile Virus, So, I’ve just been told that someone wants to take away my only defense against mosquitoes. You can understand my skepticism and resistance to change. It’s a job I take very seriously, and I love these animals dearly. To my surprise, however, all the products worked just as you described, and your misting system concentrate (Nocdown III) was a tremendous success. Diluted 1 quart to 55 gallons the periodic spray virtually eliminated all flying and biting insects in the stalls, and created a “protective barrier”around the center against flies and mosquitoes. In addition, the pleasant aroma of Cedar oil. It also seemed to calm the animals and reduced skittishness while working with them. I truly believe the chemical treatments kept them jumpy all of the time. Knowing, too, that your products are chemical-free and environmentally safe for us all gives us a great deal of satisfaction and relief while working in and around the area. As a result, we recently purchased two more cases of the Cedar oil concentrate, and you can expect more orders in the future.

Dr. Bens Favorite Testimonial about NATURES DEFENDER VET'S CHOICE

Hi Dr. Ben. Thanks for the help with my dog Brandy and her 13 puppies. When I called you they were all covered with fleas. So was Brandy. When I called the Vet he said there was nothing I could do about it. It was terrible and they didn't even have their eyes open yet. I used my babysitting money to buy the gallon of Vets Choice. Mom said this was my project and could get the money back from selling the Collie Puppies. They are purebloods you know. I already have the papers made up. And just like you said to do I mixed 4 tablespoons in a gallon of water. I took the puppies by the neck skin like you said and held them in the water with the Vets Choice in it. Most of the fleas came off right away and then some held on for a while but they came off too. I put some in their ears and wiped it on their little faces. I put half of the bottle in the water then Dad helped me with Brandy and we put her in the big barrel on her back feet. We let her stay in there for thirty minutes. She liked it and almost fell asleep. I did not rinse Brandy off and she sure looked goofy for a while. When she got dry her hair was so pretty. Mom helped me comb her out and we took a picture of her and the puppies. I will send you one when we get it developed. I took her bed mat and soaked it in the barrel we used to soak Brandy. I put it in the sun to dry. You said that the sun would kill the fleas. Remember ? You should have seen the fleas floating on the top of the water in the barrel. I got my goldfish net and scooped them off the top so the water would be clean for the next time. Dad got a barrel that has a cover and a clamp to hold the cover on. He said they are used for foods and are easy to find. He paid $10.00 for it but used his money for that. He put the rest of the Vets Choice in the sprayer behind the tractor and sprayed the yard with the water. Mom's happy now because she says the fleas got in the house from the yard. She got the garden sprayer and Dad filled it with the same stuff that was in the tank and she sprayed the house everywhere. I did what you said and made a divider for half of the puppies so Brandy would not lay and smother them. I only let half suck at a time. Remember your promise Dr. Ben ? You said that if I could keep them all alive till they got their eyes open you would give me some free Pet Safe for their bed ? It's time to pay up Dr. Ben. The 13th one he is a runt just opened his eyes today. Dad says the runt is the best one to sell last. Do you think so ? Thanks Dr. Ben for helping me with Brandy. I called the Vet today and told him he was not very smart. The Puppies are worth 250 dollars each and he would have let them all die. He hung the phone up on me. Dad said he went to school to much and hurt his brain. He thinks he sounds like a duck when he talks. Does that mean he is a quack Dr. Ben ? Mom says he has no swede sense. I am going to use the Puppie money to go to the college in Madison and learn to be a smart Vet. Dad showed me how to make enough money to have all my college paid for in 6 years plus have a new car. That is if Brandy keeps having 13 puppies each year. Dad says Brandy should have only Spring time puppies. What do you think ? Bye now Dr. Ben. Mom wants to use the computer to get tomorrows bingo cards.

Hello . I want to tell you my story about fleas and perhaps someone else can benefit from it. My brother and his wife came to stay with us for a few weeks while their home was being completed. He brought his Chocolate Lab dog with him. Since I do not allow animals in my house, the dog had to stay on the porch. Several years later I noticed black things on my white slippers in the morning. I didn't think a whole lot about it until my husband started complaining about bites on his ankles from something. That very same day I got dressed in white slacks and as I walked through the house I noticed the pants legs were covered with black fleas. I immediately called the exterminator and he went through the house and sprayed something with a terrible odor. He promised me that would be the end of the flea problem. Unfortunately it wasn't and after about four recalls and a sinus infection from the spray I came to the conclusion that whatever he was spraying was not going to work. In fact, I think the fleas liked it. I had more fleas after treatment than before. I decided to take the matter into my own hands and went to the internet to find out what I could do to get rid of this terrible flea infestation I had acquired. I found a  advertisement and sent a email to Dr. Ben. He called me ! I could not believe that. I got a quick education on fleas and for a 100 dollars using cedar oil, cured the problem. I would have gladly paid 1000 dollars. I already spent 620 dollars with the exterminator. I know now that the fleas were laying dormant in my carpet for several years. They obviously migrated into the house from the porch. I have never had a re-occurrence or have I seen any insect of any sort in my house. I did as Dr. Ben said and treated the yard just in case the Squirrels were carrying the fleas. I know now that a flea infestation cannot be linked to cleanliness and want other folks to know that if they experience the same problem I did, call for cedar oil first. Thanks Dr. Ben.

We love you Doctor Ben. My Boxer and I love you. If he could talk he would say, thank you very much for getting rid of the mange I have been suffering with for three years. It is all gone now. The Vet stuffed me full of medicine and charged my master over 2000 dollars for steroids and all kinds of other junk. Then he told him he could not help me and wanted another 100 dollars to put me to sleep. That same 100 dollars bought a bottle of Vets Choice Cedar Oil and a month later I am a new dog and I got hair. And, since I am still alive, my master took me into get my shots and the Vet could not believe how good I looked. Boss man told him about the Cedar Oil but it fell on deaf ears. He remarked that his medicine must have finally took hold ! That's a trip to denial land if I ever saw one. Thanks Dr. Ben.

I was ordered to the Shreveport, Louisiana Army Ammunition plant in 2005. The US Army provides housing for its foreign army program participation guests. I am from Sydney, Australia and a civilian member of the Australian Army. I arrived in the middle of July and my wife and I were taken to the house we were to stay in for the next 6 months. The home had been vacant for 6 months without any heat or air. We proceeded to start the air conditioners and get some relief from the heat. We quickly found we could not stay in the house as the fleas were unbearable. My wife is sensitive to chemicals so I could not let the base maintenence workers spray in the house or the yard. I went to the local feed store to purchase something that was not chemical to spray the lawn and structure with. The store man said he didn't have anything like that on hand but gave me your phone number. I called and you were nice enough to send me 2 quarts of the Pet Horse and Livestock concentrate overnight. The product worked well and after treatment, and in 24 hours, we were able to move in to live. I am going back to Australia in 30 days and would like to take a case of that product with me. You should have my credit card on file from the last order. Ship it to me at the same address on the base please. Thanks for making the USA stay more comfortable for my wife and I.

Cedar oil…I had a tick infestation ! With 6 Cats, 3 Lap Dogs and a Huge German Shepherd. I was about to lose them one by one from the pesticides when I found your product. I sent for it immediately, received in a few days and with just a few treatments of all with the dip, and spraying the house and yard the ticks were gone. I appreciate the warning about the lizards because I have pet Iquanas (one is 13 years old, my Grandsons 1st grade pet) I would hate to lose. I was attracted to your product because it is not only Non Toxic to humans and many household pets, but has also been effective in treating a skin allergy to fleas in one of my Teacup Pomeranieans. Her Skin has completely healed and the fur is thick and luxurious again ! Your product is truly an answer to a desperate prayer to save my beloved pets.
