EcoSMART Review and Giveaway




It was last  summer that I told you about a great company called EcoSMART and introduced you to some of their wonderful Organic Pesticide products.  Well, I'm happy to announce that they are BACK and allowing me to give away yet another wonderful prize pack to a reader!

This time around I decided to tell you about the Safe Picnic Value Bundle.  Now, I know what you're thinking- "Picnic in winter?!"  Well, yes!  I live in Phoenix now and during the summer it's too warm to spend an extended period outside having a picnic so when the fall and winter come around we're ready to get out and picnic it up!  Even when I lived in San Diego we were still packing up and going to the beach and park for a picnic well into January.  So, really, this bundle is for my warm-weathered readers or optimistic cold-weather readers who are hoping spring comes early this year!

So what does it include?  First, a 24 oz bottle of Home Pest Control.  I used this last summer to ward off our yearly invasion of ants back in San Diego with great success!  We didn't have a single invasion the whole summer!  Just spray it around the perimeter of your home or in areas you know insects like to build their colonies and wipe the problem out before they even start!  Two years ago we had a horrible ant problem in San Diego- were daily we were throwing away food and having to kill ant trails daily so that was not something we wanted to relive every again and thanks to EcoSMART, we didn't have to!

Also included is a 14 oz bottle of Flying Insect Killer!  This eco-friendly product kills flies, gnats, mosquitoes, moths, wasps, and other flying insect pests on contact. If your picnic is being invaded by a fly (or group of flys) just spray them directly with this spray made from organic plant oils. It kills bugs naturally to better protect your family.

Finally, the Safe Picnic Value Bundle includes TWO 6 oz bottles of Insect Repellent!  I used this repellent over the summer while working in Wisconsin and didn't have any problems with mosquitoes.  Now, I have to be honest about this one- I am generally not one to get bit by mosquitoes so I usually don't wear spray of any sort and will only get 1-2 bites even if I'm out all night.  But while wearing this spray- I got none!  So while I'm already pretty immune to bug bites EcoSMART's Insect Repellent assisted in that even more.  So I imagine if you're more prone to being bit this product can help you a ton, too!

The Safe Picnic Value Bundle will help you and your family have a safe and healthy picnic this fall or next spring!  Win it today and have it on hand for your next picnic... whenever it may be!

What I Love: EcoSMART products are made organic plant oils and are safer and more natural than other pest-killing products out there.  And best of all- they work!  I also appreciate that I am more and more seeing EcoSMART products in stores so I can pick up my products as needed while out doing regular shopping which saves on the need to have my products shipped to me.

What I Don't Love: Really, not much!  This is a great company with a great line of affordable and safe products.

Also head to the website to learn how to get rid of wasps!


BUY IT!

Like the sounds of The Safe Picnic Value Bundle?  This is a $30 value available for only $23!  You can also buy the products separately from each other and create your own bundle.  The EcoSMART Flying Insect Killer sells for $8 for a 14 oz can, the Insect Repellent sells for $7 for a 6 oz bottle, and the Home Pest Control sell for $8 for a 24 oz bottle.

Also be sure to check out the online shop to see what other great products are available!

I'd opt for the Garden insect killer. I hate seeing all the damage in the garden.

Thank you.

I think I would get the lawn insect killer - we have a really sandy yard and so we have a ton of insects like ants and grubs.

We are pretty eco-friendly, but I recently purchased a Diva cup and we are also trying to use old washcloths (rags) for cleanups in place of paper towels.
