EcoSmart Natural Bug Killer – Giveaway

I don’t like bugs. I don’t like ones that fly, ones that crawl ones that bite or ones that sting. They are creepy, crawly and give me nightmares. But as much as I don’t like bugs, I dislike introducing toxic chemicals into my home and near my daughter even more. The idea of the effect of these chemicals on my family is even more scary to me then the bugs they repel.

When I learned about EcoSmart’s natural home pest control, I jumped at the chance to share this product line with you because I was ecstatic to learn about a NATURAL way to repel those icky creepy bigs without toxic chemicals.

No toxic chemicals? Then how do they work? EcoSMART’s technology is based on the natural defenses that plants and trees use for their self-protection against insects and pathogens. Unlike other botanical pesticides, EcoSMART’s formulas are composed of the most effective combinations of organic plant oils. EcoSMART’s patented technology combines plant oils that target and block a key neurotransmitter receptor site found only in insects and other invertebrates.

When my box of EcoSmart products arrived, the first thing I noticed was the smell (one of the products had leaked a little). It didn’t smell great, after all it is supposed to repel bugs not attracted them, but it didn’t make me gag and close up my lungs (I am asthmatic) like most bug repellents. While I wasn’t a fan of the smell, I was comforted by knowing the scent was non-toxic.

The next thing I did was turn over all of the bottles to check the ingredients. What is in these organic, non-toxic bug sprays? I was floored by the list I saw:

  • Insect Repellent – active ingredients = Rosemary oil, Cinnamon oil, Lemongrass oil, Geraniol, other (isopropyl aclcohol, isopropyl myristate, wintergreen oil)
  • Ant & Roach Spray – active ingredients = Rosemary oil, Cinnamon oil, other (water, wintergreen oil, mineral oil, oleic acid, canola oil, nitrogen, vanillin & lecithin)
  • Flying Insect Killer – active ingredients = Peppermint oil, Cinnamon oil, Sesame oil, other (water, wintergreen oil, isopropanol, canola oil, lecithin & nitrogen)
  • Home Pest Control (for indoor & outdoor use) – active ingredients = 2-Phenethyl Propionate, Clove oil, Rosemary oil, Peppermint oil Tyme oil, other (water, octadecenoic acid, potassium, salt & lecithin)

Did you see that – all natural plant oils! Why didn’t someone think of this before?

Of all of the sprays, I was most excited by the list on the Insect Repellent. This is the type you spray on your skin, and since I am allergic to most areasol buy repellants I was thrilled to see Rosemary oil, Cinnamon oil & Lemongrass oil on the active ingredient list – I am not allergic to any of these. Plus, this spray smells GOOD! Don’t get me get me wrong, it isn’t going to be my new perfume… but it smells light and non-chemically. Like… well… plant oils 🙂

Luckily for me, it is early spring and we currently do not have a bug issue at our house, unfortuantly, that means I didnt have an opportunity (yet) to try out the sprays. (Even the mosquitoes are late coming out this year because we had such a cold winter.) But as soon as the first bugs appear, I will be all over them with my new organic, non-toxic, plant-based bug sprays!

Where can you buy EcoSmart?

  1. ooh! Pick me!! I am petrified of bugs and the thought of living through a Florida summer with them scares me even more! I used to have a cinnamon oil insect repellent and haven’t been able to find one since. I’m really excited to try this one. I invited a whole bunch of girlfriends to become fans 🙂

  2. I need it as I just moved into a new apartment and I DON’T want buggies bothering me!

  3. I want or need the value bundle of EcoSmart because there are alot of bugs where I live but I don’t like using toxic chemicals to get rid of them. jgs0925 at gmail dot com

  4. I would love to win this! I live in Alabama on the edge of a subdivision with 300 wooded acres adjacent to my lot. I try to keep the bugs outside, and I’ll even attack certain ones (like wasps, scorpions and even black widow spiders) who come close to my home!

  5. I’d love to win this because I’m switching my family over to all-natural products. This would be great to use during our summer campouts. Thank you for the chance – fingers crossed!

  6. I would love to win these products to control pests in a safe way. We have young family members…toddlers…who visit often and I don’t like to use harsh chemicals around them or our dog.

  7. I want to be rid of the wasps hanging outside our house – but am always so hesitant to spray anything around where the kids are!

  8. I have ants in my bathroom and kitchen. Nothing works. I have tried every kind of spray you can imagine. Maybe this will help.

  9. I’ve never heard of this company before. I’m going to look into it, I love the ingredients. I know about putting Cinnamon down as an ant barrier. Thanks!
