Giveaway: Natural Ant Killers, Organic Insecticides

Okay, here's the deal with this one: we have a natural pest killer right now and that is our 5 degree weather and heap of snow outside. We haven't had any pests to deal with in a few months, but it's Missouri and spring is on the way. The bugs...lo, they will return. And when they do, I'm looking forward to trying out some of our new organic insecticides to see how they work against the things that make us go "Eeeekkkk!"

I've tried a variety of ant killers before, so I'm really interested to see how this natural ant killer does. And palmetto bugs? Ewww. That's a nice way of saying cockroaches and stuff. I hate those. We don't have any here, but if we did I might move. Kidding. Sort of.

This looks interesting. I've been using some "Natural" cleaners that I got a good deal on, and they seem to be working just fine.

I'm trying to use more eco friendly items this year and would love to give these a try.

Just vistited the EcoSmart site and found out that Meijer carries these products.

We would love the value bundle because even in the winter, we have disgusting thousand-leggers. I think it's the basement. I want them to leave and never come back. My cat stalks them at night. So glad I've never seen my 15-month-old near them. Ugghh.

I learned their insecticide is made naturally from plant oils. Neat and safe for toddlers!
