Wondercide’s story told by CEO + Founder, Stephanie Boon:
Fierce Love® is about protecting those you love by any means necessary. That’s how Wondercide started in 2009 — with grit, perseverance, and intuition, I believed that I could save my dog, Luna (Akita-Husky mix). She was suffering from pesticide poisoning caused by commonly prescribed monthly flea-and-tick medication and quarterly pest control services. The invisible dangers were all around us and we didn’t know better. The devastating side effects included chronic skin issues, liver and kidney failure, and seizures. Several vets recommended that I put Luna down, but that was never an option for me. I felt responsible for her suffering and I knew there had to be a better way.
I started researching and learned that Luna’s story was not unique. So many animals and humans suffer from pesticide exposure. We put these products on ourselves, our pets, and around our homes and lawns, all in an effort to protect the ones we love. Through a process of discovery and ingredient research, I nursed Luna back to health and founded Wondercide. With fierce love and belly fire, I set out to do better. My life’s purpose became clear – innovate plant-based pest protection that’s truly safe and equally effective – so that other families would never have to experience the compromise that we did.
