I have one kid, two cats and one dog – so I’m always worried that the bug spray that I am using will hurt them in any way. We’ve got spiders in the garage, the occasional ants in the living/dining room and wasps in the bushes in our backyard. In other words – I am always spraying some type of creepy crawly!
I was thrilled to have the chance to try out a great organic bug spray from EcoSmart – I received two bottles of EcoSmart Wasp and Hornet Killer for our bushes out back. Unfortunately, I wasn’t really able to give them a good try because all the cold weather (and out-of-the-ordinary snow) that we’ve had in Virginia lately has chased all the creepers away!
I did spray some in our garage just to check out the smell and was happy that it smells kinda awesome! The spray has peppermint oil in it! As it is made from organic plant oil, this particular spray is also safe to use around children as well as pets. Though recommended for outdoor (and attic) use, it’s not supposed to be “directly” sprayed on plants – but I think spraying around my bushes will still get rid of some of my wasps. Hopefully this spring I will be able to really try out the product.
About EcoSmart products:
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.
A great thing about the EcoSmart products is that they are not much more expensive than the name-brand products that most people buy anyway. There are also cool “bundle’s” available – like the “personal care” bundle or the “plant and garden” value bundle.
