EcoSMART Product Giveaway! Ends 8/14





You might remember that I recently had the opportunity to review a selection of EcoSMART products. Well, I have great news! EcoSMART Organic Pesticides has generously offered one of my readers a chance to win their choice of ONE of the following products!

*Ant & Roach Killer
*Flying Insect Killer
*Wasp & Hornet Killer
*Insect Repellent




Just how safe are these products? Check out the following graph, I think you will be quite surprised!





Before we get to the giveaway, the sponsor has asked me to share the following important information! Please take the time to read this before entering.

"Squash bugs attack, you guessed it, squash as well as pumpkin plants. Both the nymphs and adults pose a threat as they suck sap from the leaves and stems while simultaneously injecting a toxic substance that causes the plant to wilt then turn black and crisp.

Want to save your squash? Here's 10 tips on how to control these suckers:

1.Detect early--it's much easier to kill them while they're young since adults hide. If you notice wilting, check for squash bugs and eggs underneath leaves.

2.Squash them individually--before numbers grow too large, kill adults and eggs collect and kill them individually.

3.Place a board or shingles on the ground near plants--squash bugs will use them as a shelter at night; so, every morning you can kill a large number of them.

4.Protect vines--prevent these pests by keeping vines covered until blossoming begins.

5.Dispose of debris--get rid of any hiding places that could protect squash bugs over winter by burning or mixing remnants of debris and leaves into soil.

6.Buy squash bug-resistant pumpkin and squash varieties, such as Butternut, Royal Acorn or Sweet Cheese.

7.Plant decoys-- companion planting may lure the bugs away from your prized plants; try planting catnip, tansy, radishes, nasturtiums, marigolds, bee balm and mint.

8.Control biologically-- introduce natural enemies like the Tachinid fly and Sceleonids.

9.Apply Sabadilla-- an insecticidal powder that is considered organic-certified, but its dust can irritate eyes and cause sneezes if inhaled.

10.Spray an insecticide-- try a natural, eco-friendly product, like EcoSMART."

I would select the Ant & Roach killer because the ants are so invasive around our area, almost impossible to eradicate and I really am reluctant to put out any toxins!

I would choose the Ant Killer, because I could swear that this town is built on a giant ant hill. It is a never ending battle. Roaches aren't a problem for me, thank goodness.

Ant & Roach Killer.
The other night I was in my bathroom, and I saw the largest roach I had ever seen. Needless to say, that night I refused to sleep, watching the walls for the sibling of the inevitably destroyed roach that scared me mid pee.

Maria said...

ii would totally use the insect repellent. It would be perfect to keep the bugs away when having a bond fire with friends.
