A Reasonably Pest Free Summer -- Natural Solutions
I am happy to report that as a result of finding some great new products at the Natural Products Expo West 2015 (and some old faithful products from years past), we were able to enjoy a reasonably pest free summer at Eco Family News.

One of the most impressive company’s at Expo West this past March was Earth-Kind, an all natural pest prevention line of products. Owner Kari Warberg-Block is a rock star in our book on all fronts … safe effective products, business, environment and education.

We Tested It: Stay Away natural pest prevention

Pro: No need to kill when you can repel. These handy scent-filled packets make critters head the other way. This is the first botanical pest prevention line made entirely from essential oils and plant fiber, all grown in the United States. Four scents aim at specific pests: spiders, ants, rodents and moths. In our tests, they were effective.

Storage of RVs takes a bit of preparation when not in use...

Mice will get in your RV while it is in storage...Speaking of mice, after communicating with a representative from earthkind, I received more earth-friendly information and a few more suggestions for all the RV fans.

With approximately 35 million RV enthusiasts in the U.S., in most parts of the country, campers and RVs are not used year around. Earthkind has compiled a list of ways to keep your camper and/or RV rodent free:

  • Tidy Up. Having trash or clutter around provides food sources, nesting materials, and hiding places for rodents.
  • Keep any non-perishable items in air-tight containers so that rodents cannot access them.
  • Repair holes and cracks. Make sure to check outside, inside, over and under your camper for any holes or cracks that mice may be able to fit through; ¼ inch is all that they need to get in.
  • Windows should be looked over for any gaps along the edges. Windows with holes or cracks should be replaced.
  • Last, but not least, campers might want to be protected with All-Natural Fresh Cab Rodent Repellent. One pouch per 8 square feet will prevent rodents from entering your camper and ensure that your wires, interior, and sanity stay intact. http://www.earth-kind.com/products/repellent/

So armed with all this first-hand information, I feel more competent that I, too, could become an RV enthusiast.

About Mammamoiselle:  "I'm a wife, mother, blogger, brand & social media strategist living in NJ. When my three kids - an energetic little 4 year old boy and one year old old twin girls, aren't keeping me busy, I love finding the best picks for moms, babies, kids, and families. I also waste a ton of time on Pinterest!"

I placed the Fresh Cab packets, according the directions (see below) in our garage area. Within the first few hours, the garage smelled so nice and fresh - a nice benefit of the product. With the weather dipping into the 30's at night, I haven't seen any signs of rodents that have made their way into the garage. Most importantly, I'm happy that my children aren't near the poisons that were there before. It's a long winter, so I plan refresh the packets as per the directions to help keep the garage free from any visitors!

I am really enjoying the Fresh Cab Botanical Rodent Repellent. It is completely safe to use around kids and animals. Made out of all natural fibers and oils, Fresh Cab repels mice simply by scent. The mixture containing Balsam Fir smells so amazing! It's like walking into a forest. the Balsam Fir is a natural pesticide, which keeps the mice out.

About Interior Design Principles: "I'm a wife and mother of two beautiful girls. Via Interior Design Principles blog I'm expressing my love for color and decor to my readers. I love beautifully designed homes."

I am a huge fan of eco-friendly products, and I recently sampled Earth-Kind products which are made exclusively of botanical fibers and oils, and most importantly are safe around children and pets.  They contain absolutely no poisons or toxic materials. It works by using a unique combination of ingredients like lavender, orange and cedar that give off a scent that is pleasant for most species but absolutely intolerable to rodents. Their products come in pouches that can be easily distributed around the house. I feel quite ready to handle at least the rodents for now!

Spring Products from earthkind ~ FreshCab Rodent Repellant & All-Natural Air Purifier/Fresheners!

When I first opened the package from earthkind, I was immediately hit with a wonderful aroma.

 

Peanut_Butter_and_Whine_Logo

Peanut Butter and Whine: It really is our own fault that we have mice in the garage. We leave the garage door open too much…. but, it gives the house a nice breeze with the back door open and the big garage door open.

Really, mice and rats wouldn’t be so bad if the little ‘bleeps‘ didn’t run so dang fast!  I think that’s what scares me. As soon as you make eye contact they RUN fast!! That makes me do the little scream, my heart is racing and I do that little dance. (I’m sorry Miss Barbara but, THEY MUST GO!!!)

About The Frazzled Homemaker: " I'm a single, work at home mom from Virginia Beach, VA. I have 3 grown children, 2 who still live at home with me and I have a baby grand daughter, who I am helping to raise who also lives here. I also have 4 dogs, a dwarf rabbit, and 2 fire bellied Asian frogs. I also care for my elderly, disabled mother so as you can see, I'm quite frazzled....This site chronicles my struggles to be a great homemaker and shares the things I have learned over the years."

...It's now been about 2 weeks and they are definitely gone! No More roof rats! We aren't even catching them in the traps on top of the roof anymore so they are avoiding our house altogether. Meanwhile my neighbors are still having problems. Even the ones that had professional exterminators come in. Yes, I have been telling them about Fresh Cab...

So will I continue to use this stuff? You betcha! It works and that's the important thing to me!

The_Nap_Time_ReviewerAbout The NapTime Reviewer: "Our goal is to bring you trusty reviews of our favorite products.  We usually don't believe an advertisement and prefer to test things out for ourselves.  We then report our findings to you."

My husband opened up the hot tub motor compartment and we placed one of the Fresh Cab pouches inside. Even after placing the cover back on the hot tub, we could smell the fragrance of the Fresh Cab!  It's like an outdoor air freshener!   And, if we can smell it, so can the mice!  Fresh Cab is approved for indoor and outdoor use by the federal EPA.  Each Fresh Cab pouch lasts for about 100 days, so a really good value for your money.  If you have ever found rodents in your boat or trailer after having them closed up for the winter, this is the product to have!

Still in college, I work from home while also attending the local university full-time."

Earth-Kind Natural Air Fresheners Review. The Earth-Kind Natural Air Freshener smells fantastic, and it's available in a variety of scents. They are easy to use, and they do a good job of naturally adding scent into your home for a good amount of time. Plus, they are really simple to set-up!

- Kayla, I Heart Giveaways

ABCD_DIARIES_SQUARE_LOGOABCD Diaries: We hadn't seen or heard any evidence off mice, but it was pretty obvious we had at least one:)  We tried the peanut butter-baited trap idea, but guess who LOVES peanut butter?  Our pup, Shiner!  We definitely didn't want him to get snapped, but we wanted the mouse gone.  We tried moving the stove a little caddy-corner (it's gas and doesn't fit flush with the wall) to block the trap, but I hated the look of that! Luckily, we found Fresh Cab, a botanical rodent repellent that is pet-safe!

bright and beautiful:  Favorite Cleaning Supplies

best-cleaning-products

Having moved into a new home recently, I've stocked up on a new collection of cleaning supplies. Similar to office and school supplies, cleaning products can actually be - dare I say - kind of fun! (Anyone else here with me?) Some of my favorites are from Method, Mrs. Meyer's, Crate & Barrel, J.R. Watkins and Earth-Kind. I also love finding natural solutions, like lemon, to use around the home.
