EcoSMART Review and Giveaway

Let me tell you a little horror story. One day when I was getting out of the shower, I looked up at my bathroom fan and saw hundreds of little baby spiders crawling out of an eggsack that was sitting in it. I completely freaked out. I hate spiders. Actually, I am not a fan of any bugs. As I was telling this story to some of my friends, they said, "Just get one of those bug bombs. Then, open your windows and leave the house for the day." Why would I have to leave my house? Because those bug bombs are toxic!! I have not and will not be using such dangerous pesticides in my home - ever. Thankfully, there are safe solutions to all those icky pests - EcoSMART!


EcoSMART Technologies creates the world’s safest, most effective pesticides based on natural ingredients. They have 15 years of scientific research and a wealth of patents behind us. They make the only 100% safe insecticides that are proven to work. 

Here is why I love EcoSMART. They were the first company to apply modern science to essential plant oils — creating the first 100% safe pesticides. Their products are based on the natural defenses that plants and trees have used for their self protection against insects and pathogens for millenia – essential oils.
Here is how it works - EcoSMART’s proprietary botanical oil blends attack attributes that are specific only to pests, they have no effect on people, pets or the environment. The primary active ingredients in EcoSMART products are approved as Direct Food Additives or classified as GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration. These oils are commonly used to add flavor and aroma to many cosmetic, beverage and food products, including cake, candy, sweetener, gum, soft drinks, and lipstick. Children and pets are safe. No need to clear them out after application or be concerned if they are near our products. Their products have no adverse effect on mammals, birds, and fish and also will not contaminate water sources.

As an essential oil fan, I really love these products! I received their Safe Home Value Bundle, which includes the following:
-- Ant and Roach Killer (14 oz can)

-- Home Pest Control (24 oz spray bottle)

-- Flying Insect Killer (14 oz can)

-- Natural Insect Repellent (6 oz bottle)




I love how safe and effective these products are. I used the ant and roach killer when I found tiny ants invading my bedroom this summer, and it kept the ants away very well. These products have a strong smell, because they use essential oils. It is nothing that you have to be afraid of. I appreciate that! The natural insect repellant is perfect for playing outside with my kids. My poor kids had been getting stung or bit by some mysterious insect this summer, and it left big dark red welts on them. Now, I don't have to worry about that anymore. Thanks EcoSMART!

EcoSMART also offers three other bundles. Besides the Safe Home Value Bundle, they also offer the Safe Plant & Garden Value Bundle, Safe Picnic Value Bundle, and Safe Patio Value Bundle.

Today we are giving away (1) Value Bundle of your choice to (1) lucky winner!

  39. my creepiest insect story (besides the ones invading my home right now) - was years ago, a great big crusty brown spider crawled out of my jade tree. This was the biggest spider with a hard shell I ever saw and I tried to sick my cat on him - he got up on his hind legs and tried to fend himself off from my cat. It was really strange - he was too big to kill with a kleenex, I had to drop a heavy book on him. Very gross and I still get the creeps thinking about it to this day

    I would love to win this same bundle because I have ants and other insects such as bees, water bugs, spiders, flies, and grasshoppers that come into my house every year! We gets ants, spiders and flies really bad which gross me out if it's a bug period!! I usually use Raid which has an awful smell which not only that it has all those harmful chemicals. I have a child in the house and pet which scares me to death on using it!

  44. My creepiest story would have to be when I was getting dressed one morning. I started going through my clothes and seen something out of the corner of my eye. All of sudden I screamed at the top of my lungs and my dad came running in not knowing what was going on. There was a spider the size of a golf ball on one of my shirts. When I screamed that spider literally jumped somewhere and I never seen it again. I mean after that I never used that closet again for my clothes. My friend came over to fix our water pipes underneath our house and told us that we had a nest of spiders that were HUGE underneath there. He was pretty freaked out about it. I then knew where the one in my closet came from. Ants are so bad that I left marshmallow creme sitting out and I didn't look down inside and stuck my finger in to get a bite and did. The next time I looked down to see about 20-30 ants inside!! I freaked out and was totally sick from that. I couldn't believe they got inside a lid that tight! I never look at marshmallow creme the same!

  73. My daughter had a very noisy cricket in her room (it kept her awake for 4 nights) and we could not get out of the radiator. I finally put a sticky trap near the radiator and sure enough the big ugly cricket was caught in the trap by the next morning. ugh, but we got it.

  101. my creepiest insect story: we moved a year ago into an older home. when we first moved in we saw about 10 roaches over a period of a month so we called an exterminator. this took care of our problem but then this spring, i found a swarm of dead termites!!!! in our ceramic entry way on the floor... i know they were termites because i looked it up on the internet and spread their little wings and compared them to ants w/ wings... so we cleaned up the mess and found out that they were the breeders and they died because of the spray that was used for roaches... still this was very creepy, no one wants their home and investment torn apart by bugs. clallen at ntin dot net

  111. In the middle of the night my daughter was crying, so I went in to check on her. On the way back down the dark hardwood floor hallway my foot brushed over something. I turned on the light because I figured it was probably some food my daughter dropped. Imagine my horror when I turned on the light and right next to my foot was a 2 inch wolf spider!

  114. My creepist insect story...I went outside to have a smoke one evening...it was dark...put my shoes on and went on the porch. Got bit by something (it was mesquito season...) and assume it was a bug so i swatted at my ankle...then again and again...i looked down and my concrete porch was completely BLACK! I ran inside and killed all the ants on my legs and shoes...turned the light on and seen probably 1000 ants on my front porch ~ no food no nothing on there!! Like they were having a big party! I went and got the raid and used like the whole can...now I check the porch before stepping out there!
