For reason beetles were setting up camp at our house. Every time we would open out back door two or three would walk right in and we were finding several throughout the house daily. I bought this STAY AWAY BEETLES just to try, totally not expecting it to actually work. Well… let me tell you, we have not seen one beetle walk back into our house. We just bought the one and put it at our back door between the main door and the storm door. The smell is kinda strong and I dont love the smell but it isnt terrible and its NATURAL! Safe for my baby and toddler!!!!!!
