What Are Benefits of Using Western Red Cedar Sawdust?

Western Red Cedar sawdust is very useful because it can be used for many different applications around a farm or a home in Dallas-Fort Worth. This sawdust is naturally resistant to decay and mold, making it perfect for mulch in planters and bedding in horse stables. Additionally, it can repel wood-consuming insects such as termites and carpenter ants. By applying Western Red Cedar sawdust around your property you can prevent wood-borrowing insects from causing damage around your farm or home.

Western Red Cedar sawdust is widely used by farmers for many different applications. Because it has a pleasing fragrance, it can be used in animal living and sleeping quarters like horse stalls, dog houses and chicken coops. Its unique fragrance and moisture-absorbing qualities disguise odors caused by animal waste. As an added bonus, Western Red Cedar adds warmth and comfort to animal bedding/floor padding.
