EcoSmart Organic Product Giveaway! Ends 9/25





You might remember that I have had the opportunity to review a selection of EcoSMART products AND host a prior giveaway. Well, I have great news! EcoSMART has generously offered one of my readers a chance to win another one of their great products!


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





Before we get to the giveaway, I'd like to share a recap of the last giveaway. 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."

This is easy for me. WE have roses and struggle with maintaining the mold and fungus without damaging the environment. So I'll have the garden fungicide.

The Ant and Roach spray, because sometimes I think this entire town was built on a giant anthill! Everyone I know has trouble with ants coming in.
