EcoSMART GIVEAWAY

This giveaway is over. Thanks to all that entered!! Congrats to Georgia Mist!


Over the past 2 weeks NC has experienced a earth quake, a hurricane, and a tropical storm which was producing tornadoes. It has been some insane weather! Unfortunately in Charlotte we haven’t gotten much rain and it is making the bugs come inside to look for water. 😦 Though, I have to admit it has been perfect timing since EcoSMART had just contacted me asking if I would like to do a review!


Did you know that more than a million children are poisoned each year due to common household chemicals? And that children that are exposed to herbicides early in life are 4 and a half times more likely to develop asthma? Those are some scary facts!! That’s part of the reason why Steve Bessette founded EcoSMART. He was having trouble finding chemical free pesticides, so in 1993 he created them by only using botanical oils. 


This is from the EcoSMART website: EcoSMART Technologies, the world leader in safe pesticide solutions, is a venture-backed company with patented technology and a world-class management team. Our mission is to create the world’s safest, most effective pesticides based on natural ingredients. We have 15 years of scientific research and a wealth of patents behind us. We make the only 100% safe insecticide that is proven to work. We offer the only complete line of EPA exempt pesticides sold in the US.


EcoSMART manufactures Organic Bed Bug Killer, Ant and Roach Killer, Flying Insect Killer, Wasp & Hornet Killer, Organic Insect Repellant, Weed & Grass Killer, Organic Insect Killer, Organic Garden Insect Killer, Organic Garden Fungicide, Organic Home Pest Control, Mosquito and Tick Control, Spider Blaster,  
Mosquito Fogger, and Insect Killer Granules. 

EcoSMART sent me the Safe Home Value Bundle and I am very impressed!  Not only is it safe and effective- but it’s totally affordable! The whole bundle is only $24!

The Flying Insect Killer has seriously been a life saver! E was outside with my mom and a wasp was flying around one of our dogs. My mom swatted at it and it apparently went after E and stung her on the neck. I had just read that Earth Mama’s Angel Baby Bottom Balm helps with stings, so I put some on E’s neck and the swelling instantly went down! But E was totally freaked out about going back outside. My mom found a wasp nest under a chair and sprayed the EcoSMART Flying Insect Killer and no more wasps!! Luckily they haven’t come back- E is having major anxiety about them. The EcoSMART Flying Insect Killer is made from organic plant oils and kills bugs naturally instead of with nasty chemicals. Kills flies, gnats, mosquitoes, moths, wasps, and other flying insect pests on contact. Here are the ingredients:

It is now flea season and our doggies have had signs of them. I sprayed the Home Pest Control by our doors and near where the dogs sleep, and haven’t seen any pop back up.

The last thing in the bundle is the Insect Repellent which repels mosquitoes. My mom has loved using it as she mows the lawn.
