Safe Organic Pest Control For Your Home & Yard!

In our area fleas, ticks and all the other summer bugs are out in force due to a lot of early summer rain.

Luckily I just found out about the Ecosmart range of organic pest control products.

Our pets are all treated with monthly flea/tick preventative, but keeping the yard (and house) free of these nasty critters has still been a challenge this year.

I don't like using strong chemical products if there is any other viable option, so the Ecosmart range is perfect for our home.

These are NOT pest control for use on your pet, but are to eliminate fleas, ticks, mosquitos and a whole host of other creeping, flying or crawling bugs!

This range is very effective, and what's even better... totally safe for use around all types of pets and (of course) children and adults too.

Based on solid scientific research, patented formulas and 100% safe natural ingredients, you can keep your home and yard pest-free without worrying about the effects of strong chemicals on your family members or the environment.

Ecosmart products are made from a patented blend of essential plant oils and does have a peppermint/cinnammon type scent. It's quite strong, but not unpleasant - and I'm much happier breathing this in than the chemicals in Raid!

You can click on the link below to learn more and see a wide variety of Ecosmart products.

The Perfect Pool For Your Pup's Summer Fun!

Dogs just LOVE to play in cool water when it's hot outside... but most kiddie pools just aren't designed with our four-legged babies in mind!

Inflatable ones get punctured or ripped really quickly, and the rigid ones can be a bit slick, not to mention easy to chew on.

But the Mariner Inflatable Dog Pool was created especially for Fidos' summer fun.

Extra-tough PVC is claw and paw resistant, and the edges are designed with a wave-pattern which makes it easy for your pet to climb in (and out) of.

Why Peanut Butter Could Now Poison Your Dog!

Most dogs LOVE peanut butter, and the ones in our house are no exception!

Although I've always considered a little peanut butter to be a healthy (but occasional) treat, I was really worried to find out recently that some manufacturers are now adding Xylitol to their recipes.

Xylitol is HIGHLY TOXIC to dogs.

It's an artificial sweetener and is also found in gum, hard candies and other sweets.

So, please make sure to double-check the ingredient list on any jars of peanut butter that your dog gets to share!

For more info. on Xylitol, chocolate and other foodstuffs that are poisonous or toxic for your dog, check out this page......
