How it Works

HOW TO USE OrganiShield

OrganiShield is easy to use and should be applied as a foliar spray directly on affected plants targeting areas where insects feed and reside such as the undersides of leaves. Spraying should be consistent, and solution sprayed until it drips of the plant leaves to ensure adequate coverage.  The spray is so safe it can be applied daily if necessary, depending on the severity of the infestation.  OrganiShield is approved for both indoor and outdoor environments and is safe for use on all types of plants, including fruits, vegetables, trees, and ornamental plants like roses, etc. 

Pro tip:  When spraying apply OrganiShield from the bottom up, making sure you apply it to the bottom of leaves first (that's where many bugs hide!) and then the top of the leaves as you work your way up the plant.  This will ensure you apply OrganiShield in the most effective manner to get great results. 


OrganiShield is effective for controlling a wide range of soft-bodied insects, including but in no way limited to mites, aphids, thrips, whiteflies, psyllids, scale, mealy bugs, and many more. 


These pests can cause significant damage to plants, reducing their yield and quality. OrganShield provides a sustainable and environmentally safe alternative to chemical pesticides. OrganiShield is also effective for controlling pests that have developed resistance to chemical pesticides as insects cannot develop a resistance to the effects of OrganiShield.


OrganiShield is practically non-toxic to beneficial insects, including Lady Beetles (Harmonia spp., Curinus coeruleus Mulsant, Cycloneda sanguinea L., Olla v-nigrum Mulsant), Green Lacewing (Chrysopidae rufilabris), Red Scale Parasoid (Aphytis melinus De Bach), Insidious Flower Bug (Orius insidiosus Say), and honeybees (Apis mellifera L) (LD50 > 80 ug/bee).

What is OrganiShield?

OrganiShield is an EPA-Registered biopesticide that controls soft-bodied insects that attack and eat plants. OrganiShield is approved for use in fields, greenhouses, and nurseries on agricultural commodities, including non-food ornamentals.


Agriculture is a vital sector for human survival, and crop protection is an essential aspect of modern existence. Chemical insecticides have been the primary method of controlling unwanted insects that destroy crops, but their long-term use poses several environmental, human health, and safety risks. The need for sustainable pest control solutions that are environmentally friendly and safe for use in and around humans and animals led to the development of our naturally occurring molecule being developed for use as biopesticide.

THE ORIGIN OF OrganiShield

In the late 1980's, a team of researchers discovered something fascinating about certain plants. They found that wild tobacco, wild tomato, wild potato, and petunia plants secrete a particular sucrose ester from the tiny hairs of their leaves to ward off pests. They were surprised to learn that the Sucrose Ester had insecticidal properties, dissolving the waxy protective coating of the target pests, causing them to dry out and die. That ester molecule is called Sucrose Octanoate Ester or SOE’s for short.


Inspired by nature's solution, the team embarked on years of research to find a way to produce SOE’s for organic insecticidal purposes on a commercially viable scale. Finally, they succeeded in formulating a process and methodology to create OrganiShield; with its active ingredient Sucrose Octanoate, a registered organic biochemical insecticide and miticide, using SOE's. With this breakthrough, they were able to bring nature's most effective and safest pest control to the world. And so, the story of OrganiShield began, rooted in the discovery of a remarkable molecule and the power of nature.  Nature invented it and we copied it; to share with you and to protect your plants and the planet. 


OrganiShield is a biopesticide made from plant constituents. OrganiShield is designed to control soft-bodied insects that eat and destroy plants.  OrganiShields active ingredient, Sucrose Octanoate Esters or SOEs, is a naturally occurring molecule found in nature, which destroys the waxy layer on the insect, drying it out, and ultimately leading to its death. As OrganiShield bio-degrade it breaks down into inert components that your plant and environment can use. 



According to the U.S. EPA, the substance biodegrades quickly, which reduces the potential for adverse biochemical or chemical interactions.  Products containing SOEs break down into inert components including sucrose, fatty acids, carbon dioxide, and water. All of which are nontoxic.  SOEs rapidly biodegrade, and do not persist or accumulate in the environment (U.S. EPA, 2002a).

Is OrganiShield and its active ingredient “Sucrose Octanoate” SAFE FOR THE ENVIRONMENT AND HUMAN HEALTH?

OrganiShield is an EPA-registered biopesticide, which has undergone rigorous testing to validate its claims of effectiveness and safety for the environment and human health. OrganiShield has the safest environmental profile which makes it an essential tool for integrated pest management (IPM) programs. 


Use of OrganiShield against mites and soft-bodied insects reduces the impact that chemical insecticides have on beneficial insects, such as bees and butterflies. OrganiShield does not leave any residues in or on plants or the environment. 

The EPA concluded OrganiShield has no toxic effects on birds, freshwater fish, freshwater aquatic invertebrates, and/or non-target plants, when OrganiShield is used according to labeled directions. In addition, the active ingredient in OrganiShield (Sucrose Octanoate Esters or SOE’s) occur naturally in certain crops and non-agricultural plants and are a normal part of animal diets This means that crop and livestock exposure to OrganiShield will have no detrimental physiological effects. I.e., If your pet lick or ingest OrganiShield it will not harm or poison them. 


According to the EPA, there are no identified sub chronic, chronic, immune, endocrine, dietary, or non-dietary exposure issues for OrganiShield and its active ingredient SOEs in children or the general U.S. population. In fact, EPA estimated that the SOE acceptable daily intake (ADI) for humans is equivalent to 2.82 lb. of SOEs per day for a 176 lb. person (U.S. EPA, 2002a).


OrganiShield does not pose a risk to human health. However, like any other pesticide, it should be handled and applied according to the label.

HOW DOES OrganiShield and its ingredients FIT INTO MODERN AGRICULTURE?

OrganiShield is a valuable tool for sustainable pest management in modern agriculture. Its favorable environmental profile makes it one of, if not the safest miticide/insecticidal product available!  To our knowledge it is the only miticide/insecticide that enjoys a FOOD SAFE rating.  One could apply, harvest, and eat today!!  A perfect fit for integration into your toolkit for eradicating crop-killing pests and protecting the planet from harmful chemicals


No phytotoxicity has been reported with the use of the substance on the tested crops.
