Natural deterrents are not pesticides. And sometimes it is important to emphasize that fact. Thus, Sniff’n’Stop makes a determined effort to educate consumers about the profound difference. You see, part of our mission is to create organic and natural products that deter pests.
We all know that pesticides and insecticides often contain harsh, even dangerous, chemicals. In today’s green society, many of us have become aware of the toxic nature of these chemicals. Additionally, any of us, especially the moms among us, have searched long and hard for safe, natural pest deterrents. We simply disapprove of exposing family, friends, and pets to pesticides in our homes or businesses due to their poisonous nature.
Can We Enjoy a Green Lifestyle and Maintain a Pest-free Environment Simultaneously?
However, by the same token, we dislike roaches, ants, spiders, or rats infesting our environment. Likewise, we dislike messy insect remains and traps. No one wants to empty a rat-trap or clean up the remains of insects.
Research and development scientist, Phil Landers faced this double-edged sword of ecology versus pest control back in 1987. That was when he expanded his innovative solutions for organic, natural pest deterrents. He created the products that led him to our current Sniff’n’Stop. Since then, he has diversified the foundational products of Sniff’n’Stock. This article will bring you a few more technological details. So, This will allow you to make informed decisions about maintaining a green lifestyle and a pest-free environment at the same time.
Formulating Natural Deterrents: A Sniff’n’Stop Backstory of Some Naughty Woodpeckers
Back in his 1987 science and research, Phil Landers realized that natural deterrents inherent in essential oils provide us with the solution to the development of green choices in natural pest deterrents. In our previous blog, we introduced you to some of the technology behind this solution.
At Sniff’n’Stop, we respect consumers. Furthermore, we know the value of the products you are buying is important. So we want to share a little of our Sniff’n’Stop history with you.
It was in 1987 that Phil Landers resolved to find a solution that would prevent woodpeckers from destroying wood poles – This was a critical problem for power companies.
Now, we know you might think a few woodpecker holes or a little wood-rot could not do much harm. You would be surprised. In a short time, woodpeckers with a little help from wood-rot can actually shred and destroy a utility pole. Phil Landers didn’t want to kill the birds, just make them go away.
Green Products for the Green Future
As he looked, “for a solution that would be safe for animals and the environment, Phil Landers experimented with several solutions.”
They ultimately led him to develop a “way of amplifying the pest-deterring effects of natural essential oils from common herbs and spices.”
- First, he took Natural essential oils that have used for thousands of years to safely deter pests.
- Then, using modern polymer science, the Sniff’n’Stock team developed and patented a method of increasing their effectiveness by encapsulating them…” They literally polymerized the particles within the solution.
- Likewise, once the oils were polymerized and amplified, they added technological time-releasing features—all at the molecular level.
The Science Behind Our Deterrent Technology: A Summary
Thus, “This method has been used successfully for more than 30+ years in repaired woodpecker holes to stop and prevent decay as part of the IPOLE-WPK System. Using a polymer known as E-SAP (short for Electro-Static Activated Polymer), natural essential oils are amplified by energy harvested from the power line’s own Electromagnetic Field (EMF).”
Therefore, without using toxic chemicals or harsh pesticides, utility companies are able to “repair thousands of woodpecker damaged poles…” No woodpeckers had to die for this benefit. Plus, there have been no reports of reoccurring decay in the repaired holes…”
Therefore, “to this day, Phil Lander’s iPole technology keeps utility poles safe globally, not only from the wood-peckers but from the bacteria, fungi and wood decay itself.”

But what has this to do with the ants, roaches, and mice that might invade your kitchen? Phil Landers diversified his innovative formula to create greenways to utilize to Sniff ‘n’ Stop natural pest deterrents to safely deter all types of problem pests. We invite you to read or review our previous blog to see how it works on insects. Keep in mind, that once again, the home-based products are just as natural and organic as we can make them.
In fact, it deters many types of pests, large and small. And we have put this formula in a large array of granules, sprays, pads, and powders.
Get Rid of Other Pests
You see, with Sniff’n’Stop technology, you can deter mosquitoes, ants, and roaches. And there is no mess. Amazingly, you can also use our natural and organic formula as a “successful deterrent to raccoons, snakes, and even bears that damage wood poles and get into garbage cans.”
With this knowledge, we are confident you will discover a path to a cleaner, greener, safer and pest-free life than the alternative pesticides or insecticides. Remember Sniff’n’Stop natural deterrents also kill 99.9% of the pathogens in its path. That must be why this blogger puts 3 small drops of the Sniff’n’Stop Diffusing Oil on her COVID-19 protective mask.
