EcoSMART Organic Bug Spray Giveaway!

Each spring I set out on a quest to find a bug spray I can use on my kids and each year I fail.  There are some products out there that say they're for the family or kids but once I scan the ingredients I wind up putting it back on the shelf.  Most of the time the kids' and family bug sprays contain the harmful, but effective ingredient DEET.  Knowing how harmful that chemical is, I refuse to put it on myself or my children.  It frustrates me to no end that finding a DEET free spray is such a challenge.  So it goes without saying that I was delighted when I recently became aware that the folks over at EcoSmart have organic bug spray that is safe to use on children.  How awesome is that?  I haven't had a chance to try it out, but it's on my list of things to buy before soccer season begins in a few weeks.

EcoSmart also has household sprays that will control home pest.  When I learned this I had one of those moments when I sat there and wondered why they even bother making the synthetic bug repellants that can be toxic for us to be around [and smell just as toxic, too].  The best thing about their home pest controller is it lists my least favorite bug as one of the pests it kills- crickets.  It's safe to be around children and it kills my arch enemy.  That sounds like one cool product if you ask me.

EcoSmart was kind enough to sponsor a giveaway of their Safe Picnic Value Bundle  pictured below.  The bundle includes their home pest control spray, flying insect killer, and two bottles of their insect repellant.

So how does one go about entering in this awesome bug armageddon bundle?  I'm glad you asked.
To enter this giveaway* simply leave a comment sometime between now and 9PM EST on Monday August 23rd telling me why you want or need this Safe Picnic Value Bundle.  If you follow me, let me know in the comments and I'll give you an extra entry.  If you blog about this giveaway and link back to this post I'll toss in an extra two entries for you.

The randomly selected winner will be announced on Tuesday August 24th.  Good luck everyone!

*Giveaway is open to those who reside in the U.S. except Alaska and Hawaii.


  1. We would love this with four young children living in buggy Texas!

  2. Living where I live, this would be a lifesaver! Thanks!!!

  3. We go through bug spray like there's no tomorrow. I hate putting it on the kids, but I usually hate the ticks and chiggers more. We don't use any insect sprays in the house. Instead we try things like cinnamon to keep the ants out (which happens to work surprisingly well, but we don't always do so well against other invaders). I would LOVE to try these!
