EcoSMART Product Review




Having children and pet's, I'm always in search of safe and non-toxic products for my everyday needs. We have a pest problem, who doesn't?! Dealing with ants, mosquito's, wasps, spiders....the list goes on and on, I contacted EcoSmart Organic Pesticides & insecticides for a little help. When I heard these products are safe and Non-Toxic? I thought "Seriously?! How is that even possible?". So I dug a little and read the ingredients and sure enough, these are quite safe!

EcoSmart has generously offered to let me review the following products from their organic line but, first, please take a look at EcoSmart's "organic insecticides" blog. Did you know that they also host contests? I didn't either, check it out!
Contest to win product samples.

These products actually have a pleasant scent unlike most chemically produced products that we buy. How could I explain the scents? I'd have to say that some of them smell like "Icy Hot" and the others I cannot place the scent, a plant smell, maybe?

I used the following product in my window and counter as little black ants have been taking over my kitchen counter this summer! I've never had an inside ant problem in this home before so imagine my shock to find them! I didn't want to purchase ant spray from the store for the kitchen area due to the chemicals being around food sources and dishes. I've sprayed the window and along the sink area, I haven't noticed any ants since. It's been a week since treating the area's with this spray.

Spiders...I shudder to think about them in my home. In Mississippi, we have several spiders including the 'Brown Recluse' and 'Black Widow'. I am terrified of spiders as I don't know which ones will bite or not and I have children. I've sprayed this following product around the baseboards in my kitchen and will move on to other areas of my home. I have noticed less spiders in my kitchen area and I hope to give the credit to this product.

Seriously, flies are disgusting and annoying pests that seem to multiply every time someone opens the front door. In addition to our good old fashioned flyswatter, I've been using this following product. I'm still a little skeptical in using it, I have children and birds in my house and I'm trying not to get anyone ill but, the product claims to be safe so I will be spraying it in the air once I feel a little better about it. I've used it outside around my trashcan though and it seems to have helped some.

This has to be one of my favorite products from this line so far! Mosquito's are terrible and I try to keep repellent on all of us when possible as well as keeping itch cream available at all times. I used this product while going to a BBQ the other night and from what I could tell, I didn't have any problems on the areas the product was applied and we were outside until quite late visiting.
