|Earthkind's Natural Pest Repellents|
Earthkind's products are made with Essential Oils, so they not only work- and are GUARANTEED TO WORK- they smell GREAT!
Today I officially joined 2020, LOL, and did my very first "Facebook Live Party" for Earthkind, and it was a success! In the process of setting up for the party and trying Earthkind's products, I learned a lot, not only about the products, and how to best use them, but also how to keep places as free of pests as possible.
Earthkind currently has 5 products: Stay Away Rodent, Stay Away Spiders, Stay Away Ants, Stay Away Moths, and Stay Away Mosquitoes- but they actually work to keep more than just those pests away!
Stay Away Rodent is made with Balsam Fir Oil, and, as with all the Stay Away pouches, one packet will last from 1-3 months; when the scent diminishes, you know it's time to replace it. If you use their hanging Pouch Pod you can extend the life of the pouches, as the oils will evaporate slower. I learned from Earthkind that the scent of dog food is THE Number One attractant for rodents, and that putting dog food - and, actually, all foods- in a sealed container (as opposed to the boxes and bags they come in) will help reduce the problem!
Stay Away Spiders is made with Rosemary, Lemongrass, and Citronella Oils, and so it smells great, too! Earthkind suggests using one pouch per entryway, or two per room, and putting them in places where spiders like to hang out. I also learned from Earthkind that vibrations from music will help to keep your place spider-free- so crank up the radio! :-)
Stay Away Ants is made with Lemongrass, Peppermint, and Thyme Oils, and you use one pouch per cupboard. Stay Away Ants has ALSO been used to keep German and American Cockroaches at bay- and they are a Huge problem in places like NYC!
Stay Away Moths is made with Cedarwood and Geranium Oils, and Geraniol, and you use one pouch per storage container or closet. We've lost more sweaters and other woolens to moths than I can count, so discovering Stay Away Moths was HUGE for us!
Stay Away Mosquitoes is Earthkind's spray-on insect repellent, and it also works for ticks, biting flies, chiggers, and gnats, and has been used to keep no-see-ums away, too! It's made with Picaridin, a safe insect repellent that can be used by pregnant women and children. I will Definitely be using this in our garden this summer, and when we go ATVing to pick berries, as I am usually eaten alive by chiggers and skeeters, and constantly picking ticks of of us and our pets...
Earthkind's Blog has LOTS of great info on keeping pests at bay: https://www.earthkind.com/blog/
Since this party was all about bugs, I decided to make some Bug-Themed Appetizers and Drinks, to keep everyone amused, at least virtually: Tomato Ladybugs, two kinds of Mozzarella Mice, and a Spider Cocktail:
