Like most Southern families, we spend a lot of time outdoors. One of my favorite things to do is sit on my front porch with my kids and dog and watch them play in the front yard -coffee always a must!
What I don’t like, is little bugs crawling around the porch -it seems that they can smell good coffee from a mile away. Over the years, we’ve tried a lot of insect and pest control systems but none of them seemed to have what I was looking for: a bug spray that was effective, didn’t smell or contain harsh chemicals, and that was safe* to use around my kids and pets.
Thanks to the internet and Pinterest, we’ve even tried making a homemade version; you know, the type where you mix everything in a 5-gallon bucket, transfer it to a sprayer, and then spray around your home? Yeah, that didn’t work and I should have saved my essential oils for something else.
Until one day, I was introduced to Zevo, a new brand of home pest control products. Whether it be flies, roaches, or ants, Zevo can effectively eliminate bugs while being safe for use around people and pets.
Why Choose a Nature-Inspired Bug Spray
In the south, we have flies, roaches, and tons of ants. Everywhere. Inside and outside the home -and no, it’s not because we keep our homes dirty. If it rains too much ants will find a way to come inside. Roaches you just can’t keep out, and flies are a pain if you want to entertain outdoors.
Have you checked out the ingredients on the back of a typical roach repellent? Most contain DEET an ingredient which effectively kills bugs but also can wreak havoc on our nervous system receptors, especially in kids. No thanks!
So what’s a mom to do? Accept those creeping, crawling things in the house and go on with life? Or, find an effective and safe product that works. The latter, thank you.
I chose Zevo because it uses bio-selective technology in its sprays and traps and they use nature-inspired active ingredients that effectively kill bugs while being safe for my family.
Choosing a Bug Spray that is Safe for Kids
Unlike other insect control brands, Zevo offers a nature-inspired bug spray that has a deep understanding of the difference between bugs vs. people/pets so it targets nervous system receptors only active in bugs.
It’s a much smarter and cleaner way of taking care of pesky problems without causing anxiety or concern about chemicals being sprayed in and around the house..
Zevo is way smarter than bugs
This is one insect control product I feel completely confident using in my home and around my family, it effectively eliminates bugs while being safe for use around people and pets when used as directed.
And contrary to homemade versions, which call for a concoction of vinegar that stinks and essential oils, Zevo comes in two forms, insect traps and spray, both ready to go. The best part is that it works!
I have Zevo’s Insect Trap near the kitchen because it attracts and captures insects without chemical insecticides — using instead a multi-spectrum light technology and simulated body heat to attract and eliminate flying insects.
What Makes Zevo Safe Around Families and Pets?
With 3 kids and a dog, I have a full house but when the warmer months arrive and schools out, you can imagine what it’s like! Coincidentally, it’s also an active time for bug infestations, so powering up with Zevo is a must!
In the kitchen and one near the pantry, I like to use Zevo Flying Insect Traps. It helps keep gnats, fruit flies, and flies under control. And, there’s nothing worse than buying a delicious pineapple that needs to be kept on the counter for a few days to ripen only to find that over those days, fruit flies have multiplied all over the kitchen. Ugh, no thanks!
Safe & Effective Insect Control for Your Yard
During warm weather, my family likes staying outdoors whether it’s playing in the back yard or hanging out while dinner cooks on the grill. Of course, warm weather and grilling food in our outdoor kitchen attracts all things that crawl, so spraying the back patio and outdoor kitchen area with Zevo Spray is an easy way to enjoy a pest-free time. I see the bugs, I spray the bugs, and I can quicly get bak to enjoying my outdoor time.
The active ingredients in Zevo sprays are inspired by plants’ natural defenses against insects/bugs and unlike other insect control products made with harsh chemicals it’s safe to spray where both the kids and pets hang around.
In the end, we all want to enjoy our time indoors and outdoor bug-free all while keeping harsh chemicals away from our family and pets.
I’ll give credit where it’s due, bugs are very resilient and very smart, but Zevo outsmarts them. Head over to Zevo’s website to see how they’re #WaySmarterThanBugs and how they offer a safe yet effective solution to keeping your home pest free, as well as purchase them online.
