January Giveaway: Safe Organic Pesticides
Our giveaway for January is the EcoSMART Safe Home Bundle.
I know, I know. Pesticides as a giveaway prize?
Seriously, though, I this bundle is really cool. I was contacted by the lovely folks at EcoSMART asking me to try out their line of ecofriendly, non toxic products. When I went to their website to learn more, I was intrigued. First of all, we have children who spend lots of time ramming around on the floor. We also have a dog.
In the summertime, we sometimes have to deal with a few hands here and there. As often as I clean and try to make sure there's nothing attracting ants, we do have kids who spill and leave crumbs. I remember once Nick was eating breakfast in the breezeway (3 season room) and spilled orange juice and covered the spot with a pillow instead of telling me about it. The next day, there were ants all over that spot.
We also have lots of mosquitos out in the backyard at night near our row of hedges. My worry is always about how safe something is and trying to make sure we're not eaten alive by bugs or have ants trying to make their way into our house.
EcoSMART sent me the Safe Home Bundle and I cannot wait until I can try it out. Luckily, we do not get wasps and hornets, ants, and things of that nature this time of year. It's been around 10 degrees lately and snowing each day, so I think we'll be worry free for a few more months.
When we lived in Savannah, though, we constantly had to worry about things like cockroaches, fire ants (ouch!), mosquitos, etc. If you live in a warm climate, you'll be able to try this much sooner.
There are so many products on the market, though, so why would you want to try EcoSMART? Safety. That's why. These products are 100% natural. They don't add toxic chemicals to the water supply, leave a dangerous residue, or harm wildlife. Using natural plant oils to target the annoyances, EcoSMART's line is considered "safe" by the EPA, and isn't harmful to humans or pets. You can use the products and stay right in your home without worrying about what your loved ones are breathing in.
