CLOSED - Day 6: Get EcoSmart!

Photobucket

Last fall we had a huge problem with BUG! It was so freaking annoying! That also ment that we didn't spend as much time as we wanted outside. I would only go outside with boots, long socks and a jacket (in Texas we have Mosquitos too!), I would just put clothes on the line to dry and come back in. We also didn't let our dog run outside for a while. We searched and searched for something that we could use but not harm the environment. I had eventually gave up. BUT THEN.....

I found EcoSmart! An Organic Insecticide! Then I found out they have a great blogger program. They want other families to know about their products. I signed up immediately and was given the opportunity to try out one of their Value Bundles. I thought it was just going to be some samples that I could use for like a few weeks. But no! I was so amazed when I received the package. I mean I read what the packaged included online, but I didn't think I would be able to review this exact one. This is what the Safe Home Value Bundle I choose included:
-- Ant and Roach Killer (14 oz can)
-- Home Pest Control (24 oz spray bottle)
-- Flying Insect Killer (14 oz can)
-- Insect Repellent (6 oz bottle) 
Their website has lots of products, information, video and more where you can learn all about the company and their products. Also check out the information on how to kill gnats. A lot of times I like to see video of the products that I might purchase, but that always isn't an option, you have to "google" them. EcoSmart has been featured in lots of videos. Check this one out at Good Morning America. After I saw it I asked my neighbor if he had heard about EcoSmart and he said no... we talked a while about how products that are actually worth looking into are often over looked, even when publicized, but that's another story. EcoSmart even has an awesome Blog with tips, how you can be a tester and even WIN some products! I sound like a commercial don't I? I get that a lot. If you'd like to read other testimonials about how much people are loving this product CLICK HERE.

EcoSmart was founded in 1992 by Steve Bessette. This is the kind of person that I hope children look up to. He is a strong person who when faced with all the challenges of life his outcome was EcoSmart Technologies! Steve also shows us how to Spray Safe, watch the video below, starring yours truly, Steve Bessette!

Founder, Steve Bessette

.....Bessette believes that EcoSMART technologies is helping the parents of communities in the U.S. feel good about the foods they eat, the safety of their children and pets, and the health and well-being of their living environment and water supply.

So Hubs and I took EcoSmart to the TEST! First we have those huge ugly red ants along our side walk in our back yard. We took the Ant & Roach killer and sprayed a small area. After a while the ants "took a nap" and other ants began to scatter and avoided the sprayed area. Hubs was freaking out. He's usually the one that deals with Bugs and he said with other sprays, first he only uses them when we're about to leave the house as to not have our girls breath in the "stinky stuff," as they call it, but he also said that when he sprays the ants/bugs shrivel up right away, and isn't a pretty sight. So we continued to spray all along the edge of the sidewalk. Several hours later we went to check on the ants and we saw a few more stumbling along. So even after several house the spray was still doing its job! And let me just put in here, the smell is wonderful. It's been about a month and no ants! Hubs is no longer afraid to spray when the girls are outside playing and he's actually been using the spray weekly, hoping that it will keep them from coming back.

We also love the other products. We used all the sprays in the bundle without a problem. With the "SAFE" sticker we recommended it to all our friends and family with children. Especially the Ant & Roach spray and the Insect Repellent. They all smell great too because they are made of plant oils.

Before finding EcoSmart we were hesitant with which products to buy because they were "stinky stuff" and not safe for our family. From now on we will only buy EcoSmart!

I love videos so watch this video with the founder, Steve, talking about his campaign, challenge and "How to Spray Safe."

  1. I'm a GFC follower and would love to try the Safe Personal Care value bundle that has the personal insect repellent. We have a TON of humongous biting insects in the summer and I would love some safe repellent the family can use. Thanks!
