What is IT?

Pest control of course.

Hard as we may try, it is virtually impossible to keep rodents, insects and other pests completely out of our homes. Pests can be very persistent and are evolutionarily designed to be sneaky, stealthy, and avoid detection. As impressive as pests are in their ability to infiltrate our homes, the stereotype that goes along with having pests is that you are a messy or unkempt person who doesn’t take proper care of their home, hygiene, or health. No one wants to be thought of that way.

Homeowners go to great lengths to protect their property, their health, and their reputations. Some people contract pest control services that provide regular home visits; some people sanitize, sterilize, and organize everything meticulously; some people set up snap traps, sticky boards, or other types of insect or rodent poisons and bait stations all over the place to kill whatever wayward pest would dare to trespass. Aside from concerns about the risks of toxic chemicals used in pesticides and insecticides, as well as safety and ethical issues raised by using traps, a big problem is you don’t want a guest to come over and see a dirty old mouse trap in your kitchen, or a gross glue board tucked away in the closet.

EarthKind has devised a pest control solution that addresses all of these concerns. Our Stay Away® line of pest control pouches repels ants, beetles, moths, rodents and spiders naturally so there is no worry about dangerous poisons or inhumane and unsightly traps. Still, you are left with a pouch that says “Stay Away Ants” (or moths or rodents or spiders or beetles) on it, and maybe you don’t want to have to explain to nosy neighbors or other Lookie Lou’s about what it is and why it’s there. Don’t worry, we’ve got your back!


The Incognito™ Pouch Pod conceals the Stay Away® pest prevention pouches with style. It is 100% bio based and made from flax, beets and sunflower hulls grown on North Dakota farms. Incognito is discreet and attractive. You can place one of our pest pouches inside and put it wherever it is needed to protect against pests. It even comes with a removable hook so it can be hung up in closets or any other place where hanging is more convenient than just setting it on a flat surface.

If anyone asks what it is, you have the choice or sharing your little secret about how to get rid of pests naturally, or you can just demurely call it an air freshener and leave it at that!
