Eco Smart review

I know its not the season to think about bugs but there is one bug that has been intruding in my house lately since the cold started and that's spiders. I hate spiders! I also hate using harsh chemicals in my home with my baby who gets into everything and put anything in her mouth and then also with my son who has Asthma which most things I spray irritate him. So when I heard about a natural bug spray I wanted to know more.

Eco Smart's natural bug spray kills over 100 creepy crawly pest that come into your home like Ants (including Carpenter, Red Harvester, Pavement and Argentine), Beetles, Centipedes, Cockroaches, Crickets, Earwigs, Fleas, Millipedes, Pantry Pests, Pillbugs, Silverfish, Spiders, Sowbugs, Ticks and other crawling insect pests. It is all organic and made with plant oils like Clove Oil, Peppermint oil, Rosemary oil, Thyme oil and etc.

My first opinion was does this really work. Honestly I am intrigued in to using it this spring and summer with the ants since we get alot of ants at our house even with sweeping 3 times a day. As for spiders I sprayed it around the window sills and door ways inside and out and at first the smell is a little strong. It has a strong mint smell but after a few minutes it fades. So far after two weeks of trying it I have noticed fewer cobwebs and I haven't seen any spiders. This is a very good thing. So far so good. My favorite thing about it other than that it works is that I don't have to make sure my kids don't go near it and that it is safe to use around them.

I also got the organic ant killer which I haven't used yet but am definitely going to this spring. Like i said we get tons outside and inside and they come in through the walls somehow. Such a pain. So I will let you know more about this in the spring.

Another thing I got was the Flying Insect Killer. This is another one I haven't tried yet since it is winter but excited to try. We also get wasp or hornets really bad. They build hives under our desk in our backyard and in our siding on the house. Me and my daughter are allergic to them so we cant even go outside on our deck in the summer because of them. They are very mean and fierce. My other kids are scared to death of them because they have been stung. I have put up traps and used sprays on their hives and nest but they still are there. I even have a professional bug killer spray stuff on the deck all it did was piss them off more. So I want to try to see if this does any better. Fingers cross we get our deck back this summer!

The last thing I got was Insect repellent. With us out alot during mosquito season at car shows and events we get bit alot. So I am really wanting to try this. It is safe to use on kids and is Deet free which is good. I am allergic to Deet so I am hoping to be able to use this. I love the all natural products and chemical free is awesome.

So if your looking for the stuff that is chemical free and all natural and is safe to use around your kids and pets you have found the stuff. So far my overall opinion is this stuff has proven to me it works and I think it will work for you too. You definitely should give them a try. The best part is you can get all four item in my review for only $24. Now that is a awesome price that no one can beat. Spring will be coming faster than you think so why not be ready now!

I have used their Ant and Roach spray. We have a problem with ants and this works wonderfully!

I've used the ant stuff as well. Works wonderfully and doesn't bother my cats. The smell is actually pretty nice too. I'd love to try some other EcoSmart products.
