Control Pests Safely with EcoSMART

One of the questions we get often around here is “What is a safe way to control bugs?” and up until now I only had home remedies and natural tricks to share.  I discovered EcoSMART online and ordered myself a few products to try out.  They carry a full line of pesticides that are based solely on essential oils and the natural oils plants use to defend themselves against pests.  I admit to being skeptical.  So far my home remedies were, at best, mediocre in preventing or controlling pests in my house and in my garden.

My real first test came when we had a lovely patio put in with tumbled pavers.  This patio changed my life… we spend hours out there playing and eating, especially during our Florida winters.  But with that came small weeds that wedged in between and ruined my patio chi.  My husband of course wanted to go on a rampage with a bottle of weed killer.  Instead, I tried EcoSMART’s Weed and Grass Killer.  In a day all those pesky weeds were shriveled brown nothings that were swept away with a broom.  I felt so victorious!  When the box arrived I was immediately aware of the strong scent these products have but since that’s the only “drawback” I’ll take that over chemical pesticides any day.

EcoSMART has a ton of products utilizing organic plant oils to control and tame pests and weeds, safe for use around kids and pets, which put me at ease.  I’ve since used the ant and roach killer with perfect success as well.  Totally impressed with EcoSMART!
