    How it works

    eco-oil penetrates the exo-skeleton (skin) of pests, blocking up their spiracles (breathing parts) and suffocating them.

    Beneficial insects are safe as they are larger so it's not possible to completely cover them in eco-oil and/or they have more flexible arms and legs which they use to wipe the oil off.

    HIPPO Enhanced eco-oil contains new plant extracts which now attract beneficial insects into gardens to feast on pests! A broad range of beneficials are attracted including ladybeetles, lacewings, hover flies and parasitoids.
