Kajay’s Enviro Protocol

November 25, 2014 By: kajay Category: Enviro Spray and Protocol, Kajay's Recipes

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Boric acid + IGR  + knockdown
  • 1 Gallon covers my 2500 sq foot house and my SUV
  • I spray this only twice a year
I fired my pest control operators because they came in, sprayed, and the critters immediately hid from the spray everywhere I did not want them to go: my bed, dresser, and hanging clothes, as well as in any debris lying around. After I read an article in National Allergy magazine about using boric acid to help control dust mites, I devised this recipe. It takes a few weeks to kick in and it is easy to think that it is not this that makes things better – but in my case, it _is_ what made things better. A lot better. I find out if I go past the six month mark (I do this every July 4 and Christmas, that way I don’t forget).
Remember–this is what works for me. I am not qualified to offer a professional opinion or to tell you what you should or should not do, or what is safe or what is not safe.

WHERE I SPRAY

  • I spray me first!
  • I spray where I don’t want them to go second
  • I spray a grid pattern to leave them a place to escape
And yes, it does last that long. I have been doing this for years now and it still is the best thing I’ve tried (and I’ve tried a lot, like you).
Warning: Do not use this on anything a child or pet might chew.

DETAILS

Preparation

If I have time, I vacuum. But if I don’t have time to vacuum, I spray anyway. The sooner the better.
Recipe
In a gallon sprayer, I–
  • Add 1 quart hot water
  • Stir in 1/2 Cup orthoboric acid (Eaton’s brand is cheap and available online)
  • Add the manufacturer recommended amount of ANY brand of insect growth regulator
  • Add a people-friendly knockdown like Enzyme Cleaner with Peppermint or Orange Plus (tho a little Pine Sol might be okay too)
  • Mix thoroughly then fill sprayer to fill line
Strategy
I spray a fine but solid stream around everywhere I don’t want the critters to run once I start spraying:
  • ME (especially shoes/boots)
  • Beds
  • Dressers where I am still able to store my clothes (thx to menthol crystals)
  • Closets where I am still able to let my clothes hang
  • Electrical sockets, light switches and fixtures
  • Around window and door frames
Technique
I spray two thin streams around the walls, one at knee level and the other just below the ceiling. I “paint” around obstacles like big furniture but make sure I keep the line solid. The thin stream helps ensure I can spray my whole 2500 sq ft home with one gallon. The solid part ensures that the critters on the walls can go nowhere without “crossing streams.”
Follow-Up
I do this on July 4 and Christmas. If I go eight months I start having problems, including “fliers.”

Preparing for Sleep: Chin Up (Sink)

Scalp

  • I have been lice combing almost every night for many years. When I miss a few nights, I get really bad head and face crawlies and worst problems all over. I use a regular rubber handled flea comb. They are durable and work well enough for my not so microscopic morgies. I start by applying an F-zyme solution and some dimethicone based hair conditioner, then I comb till the comb comes clean and then wash my hair twice with Dawn.

Eyes

  • I use eyelid scrubbies then rinse my eyes with tepid water, blot, repeat 3x or more. I do my eyes before the rest of my face because the smell of the chemicals helps keep any organisms on my face from running right into my eyes.

Face and Neck

  • I use a Buf Puf and scrub really well.

Hair

  • I apply conditioner, beefed up with a little (not coincidentally antiparasitic) castor oil for more conditioning for little $.
  • I wrap my hair with paper towels, secure them with a wig cap, and cover with a plastic shower cap.
Tomorrow night I will share the remaining bedtime rituals that help me sleep…

Clothes Spray

This helps reduce bites from “sheds,” that is, from anything that “falls out” of my scalp. In a quart spray bottle, I add 6 oz of Jeffers Pet’s Foot and Hoof Rot spray, 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of herbal insect repellent (I like Legacy Herbs), and fill with water.

Skin Treatment

This significantly reduces crawling and biting. I apply this from the neck down twice daily: once when I am dressing for work and again when I am getting ready for bed.
In a plastic milk pitcher, I use a large wire whisk to mix–
  • 3 1-quart bottles of Luster’s Pink Oil (original not light)
  • 1 tsp of Legacy Herbs Insect Repellent
  • 1/4 Cup of Jeffers Pet’s Foot and Hoof Rot spray
I pour this mixture into a single-serving, melamine pasta bowl. I scoop it out with both hands and can apply all over very quickly this way.
I apply to privates first then everywhere else (on my feet I first apply an antimicrobial).
Check back tomorrow  night for the life-saving techniques I have developed and used for years with any number of products.

Lymorg.com is now shipping the latest F-zyme formula available.

Note to Newbies

I had this a long time before I knew what it was, and for many years before I discovered this group. You are going to get well before me because you have not had it as long. Hold onto that. I know you are hurt and angry and don’t know why this is happening to you or why no one will listen.
I have seen many sufferers with less time in the disease than I have, come and go. YOU CAN, TOO! But you can also reduce the discomfort we have all experienced while you get rid of the disease.
Check back tomorrow night to read the first of my articles about how I have made this horrible battle a little less horrible.

In addition to “slamming zymes” I decided to try what a friend is doing with great success, that is, when he uses this product in the bathtub, a large number of black particles came out of his body. You have probably heard of people using algaecides. He has found one that has less side effects – it is gentle – and that is inexpensive. But most of all, it works! I used it differently, in my post-shower drizzle (air dried). I mixed it with my usual F-zyme + borax + epsom salt combo.

The big difference in what happened with me is that instead of black particles, I get large (1/8 to 1/4″ long) completely white fiber critters! They are constantly rolling out of my body and onto my  skin once I use the algaecide.

As with the F-zymes, I take a supplement to reduce biting. The best (for me) is oregano, with neem leaf and olive leaf tying for second. I take three of whichever of these I have on hand. When I don’t, I get bitten.

Note: Lymorg.com seems to be offering F-6, but Gordon will actually ship you the latest F-zyme formula he has on hand at the time he receives your order.
