Do you have a patent number? I did a search at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office
site ( http://www.uspto.gov/patft/index.html ) and there is neither a patent or
published patent application for a product called "DecoGuard", "Deco Guard",
or "Deco Gard". I also did a search for patents and trademarks owned by "Organic
Products International" and "Mold Elimination of Florida" and found nothing. I was
also unable to find anything in the FDA databases on DecoGuard, a product you claim
has been approved by the FDA.

There is no such thing as an EPA approved product. The EPA registers products and
it's not a matter of choice, it's the law when the product is a pesticide:
"Federal law requires that before selling or distributing a pesticide in the United
States, a person or company must obtain registration, or license, from EPA. Before
registering a new pesticide or new use for a registered pesticide, EPA must first
ensure that the pesticide, when used according to label directions, can be used with
a reasonable certainty of no harm to human health and without posing unreasonable
risks to the environment. To make such determinations, EPA requires more than 100
different scientific studies and tests from applicants. Where pesticides may be used
on food or feed crops, EPA also sets tolerances (maximum pesticide residue levels)
for the amount of the pesticide that can legally remain in or on foods."

Eliminate and kill mean the same thing.
