This is been the wettest, rainiest, stormiest spring in living memory, and with the moisture come the bugs. Bugs love wet. Bugs love humidity.Just mowing the grass, in the bright sunshine, the gnats, mosquitoes, ticks, chiggers, and you-name-it come out in droves, sensing fresh blood. You can spray your body with expensive chemicals and the bugs will just gnaw around it.However, there’s a way to spend some outdoor time without risking dangerous smelly chemicals. It’s easy. Just tie a strip of EcoSmart Plastics and Repellem around your ankle, and the bugs will give you a wide berth. Tie a few strips around sticks and place them in your garden, and your tomatoes will be bug-free, too.On your deck, tie some Repellem strips here and there on the posts, and you can sit on your swing or cook out without constantly batting the bugs away. There will BE no bugs.EcoSmart Plastics and Repellem products are wonderful in any season, but in the hot, humid summer weather you’ll be even more grateful that you’ve got ‘em!They’re absolutely 100% safe to use on your tiny children, too.

We read about bedbugs in novels about pioneers. We read about bedbugs being found in unkempt hotel beds. We read about bedbugs in OTHER people’s homes but never ours.
The fact is, however, that bedbugs are back, and they’ve brought reinforcements the likes and numbers of which have never been seen before. Bedbugs are being found in schools, offices, hospitals, daycare, inns, hotels, motels . . . some of the cleanest-looking places in the world are finding bedbugs!
We usually associate bedbugs with, well, beds, but they have other places they love to hide, too. Your clothes and shoes, for example. Your coat closet. Your boots. Your mittens. Your towels, and linen closets. Your drains and electrical outlets. Your baseboards. Blankets. Pillows. Matresses.
Most charitable places no longer accept anything that’s upholstered any more, because bedbugs love your chairs, and sofas. They love your carpets.
They love your car, and your baby’s carseat.
They love your kitchen cabinets. They dance in your dishes when you’re not looking. They scamper among your silverware when the drawer is closed.
My community has been notified of several infestations, but in my house, we haven’t noticed any bedbugs, at least not yet. I have no scientific conclusion to draw, but I do know this: There are EcoSmartPlastics and Repellem bags in all of my closets and cabinets. There are Repellem bags between my mattress and box springs. Repellem bags hang in all of my closets, and there are wadded strips of Repellem bags in all of my drawers.
When I packed away my Christmas decorations and trees, everything was placed in a large Repellem trash bag and securely tied. The sweet, pleasant fragrance of Repellem permeates my house today; it smells better than many expensive candles.
I credit EcoSmartPlastics and Repellem products for my home’s total lack of bedbugs. Oh, and there are no roaches, ants, weevils, or moths here, either. No mice. And when I set the trash out on the deck, it’s completely unmolested.
There is no way I would EVER use another kind of trash bag in my home again. EcoSmartPlastics and Repellem products have won my loyalty, 100%, and everylasting.
Look closely at my tomato garden and you will see that each tomato cage has been wound with a strip of Repell-em, and between the scent, the ends waving in the breeze, and the large Repell-em piece acting as a scarecrow there on the end, I really believe we’re going to get some tomatoes for ourselves this year.
I don’t have to worry about “insect repellent” touching my food and contaminating it in any way, because Repell-em products are made of 100% natural ingredients and are completely harmless.
The cats were used to playing in that railroad flat all winter, and it’s really funny to watch them go running toward it and then stop short, look around with a bewildered expression, and then turn and walk away. The deer have been using that garden patch as a salad bar all winter, but now that there is actual food in it, they behave as though they can’t even see or smell it. That’s because they can’t. The EcoSmartPlastics Repellem strips have rendered my tomatoes unplottable!
Here’s a closer shot of a few tomato cages, so you can see in greater detail what I’ve done with the strips of Repell-em. It’s nothing fancy, obviously, but so far it’s working like a charm!
There are so many uses for your Repell-em products. So far, every experiment I’ve done with them has been successful!
All the climate scientists are reminding us that this summer’s batch of insects is the worst in a long, long time, but EcoSmartPlastics Repellem can ensure that your cookouts and picnics are bug-free, too. And if you go for a pleasant summer walk, make it even more pleasant by tying a strip of Repellem around your ankle and wrist. You’ll stroll absolutely unmolested by mosquitoes, gnats, chiggers, and any other summer blood-sucking pest.
EcoSmart Repellem products are almost like magic; they work so well, and are completely harmless. Amazing!
. . . and grilling time means outdoors time. This extra-humid and extra-pollen-ish summer has more than its share of happy and excited bugs, but when we had a cookout this past weekend, we weren’t bothered a bit by insects – not a single, tiny bit.
We didn’t use any dangerous bug sprays or smelly candles, either. It’s not good to use poisons around food, pets, or children, and a typical cookout has all three. All we did was put an Ecosmartplastics’ Repellem tablecloth on both round deck tables, and a couple of Repellem trash bags in the wastebaskets. We’d need tablecloths and trash bags anyway; why not use the best: products that not only serve their usual purpose, but also keep away almost every kind of insect imaginable?
Our cooking could have been plagued with insects, attracted by the sweat, blood, and smells of the cooking food, but it wasn’t. We didn’t have to sit at the table eating with one hand and swatting bugs away with the other.
We didn’t have to sit and put up with the overwhelming odor of anti-bug skin sprays or citronella candles, either. All we smelled was food.
Ecosmartplastics Repellem and Eco-Smartbag products are versatile and so very, very useful. Why put up with insects at your picnic when you can keep them away with a tablecloth? Why put up with mice and roaches in your kitchen trash can when you can keep them away with a trash bag?
I have used Ecosmartplastics Repellem and Eco-Smartbag products ever since I first heard of them several years ago. They are far superior to any other kind of plastic product I’ve ever used, and they are the ONLY ones that keep away insects and wild animals. 100% biodegradable and made of 100% natural products, Repellem tablecloths and trash bags will turn your buggy summers into insect-free vacations.

How many trash bags have you ever bought that will not only be receptables for your garbage and trash but will also keep insects and animals away from your garbage and trash? Or be made of 100% recyclable, biodegradable, natural ingredients? Or keep your winter woolens safe from moths? Or keep the deer and bugs away from your garden?
How many outdoor tablecloths have you ever bought that will also keep the mosquitoes and gnats away from your picnic?
How many such products have you used in the past that caused you to worry and hesitate to use in or near a child or a child’s room for fear of poison, since small children chew on pretty much everything? With Ecosmartplastics Repellem products, you won’t have these worries. 100% natural, harmless ingredients.
Ecosmartplastics Repellem products don’t even harm the insects and animals it repels; they just, well, REPEL them.
Even the thickest, finest, and most expensive trash bags can not be set outside the night BEFORE the trash truck comes; dogs can smell that feast from miles around. However, with Ecosmartplastics’ Repellem & Eco-smartbag products, you CAN set your trash outside on the curb the night before because animals simply can not detect the presence of even the stinkiest garbage if it’s inside a sealed Repellem bag. How nice not to have to rise at dawn to run after the garbage truck with your bags of trash!!
There are more uses than these for Ecosmartplastics’ Repellem & Eco-smartbag products; check this blog each month for updates! In the meantime, check our archives for all kinds of ways these products can be used.
It’s Christmas Week, and oh, the baking! And oh, the wrapping! And oh, the cooking and cleaning and planning! And oh, the mess all of these things can make – smelly messes, fragrant, odorous messes that every insect and animal within sniffin’ distance has been waiting for all year!
If you use Ecosmartplastics Repellem products, however, you won’t have to worry about the animals OR the bugs, because Ecosmartplastics Repellem products are made of 100% natural ingredients that repel animals and insects, completely!
So go ahead and bag up your holiday trash and set it outside on the curb, or out on your deck. Nothing will bother it. While your neighbors might be chasing their trash up and down the street, your Repellem bag will still be sitting right where you put it, unmolested, untouched, and intact.
It’s been a lovely day today: sunny and breezy and very, very hot. The heat doesn’t bother me, but the bugs drive me CRAZY!
Why, then, was I sitting outside on my deack?
Because I had an EcoSmart Repellem tablecloth on my outdoor table, and there WERE NO BUGS. Not one.
No mosquitoes. No flies. No gnats. No wasps. No ants. No chigger bites on the two borrowed neighbor toddlers.
This is especially significant because we were eating canteloupe at that outdoor table, and we left the juicy rinds outside while we went to water the rosebushes.
When we got back to the mess on the table, there were still no insects of any kind on that mushy, slushy, strong-smelling (Y’all know what canteloupe smells like!) pile of ickiness on our four plates.
I cleaned up the mess, threw it into an EcoSmart Repellem trash bag along with our supper leftovers, which included several corncobs and some chicken bones. In an ordinary trash bag, this would have been an animal’s and an insect’s dream-come-true, but that trash bag has been sitting outside on the deck for hours now and nothing has touched it.
Oh, and those less-than-half-price EcoSmart Repellem trash bags I ordered from Cabela’s last Monday? They arrived in three days. THREE DAYS. Whatta deal.
At a friend’s house today, I noticed that there were gnats swarming all over her kitchen trash. Well, and why wouldn’t they, I thought, seeing that her trash bin was full of watermelon rinds and moldy strawberries!
When I got home, I looked at my own kitchen trash, and there was not a single gnat in sight. I looked a little closer and saw that my trash bin was full of chicken skin and corncobs from last night’s supper: surely a feast for any self-respecting gnat!
So, what was the difference, bug-wise, between my friend’s kitchen trash and mine?
She used Glad bags, and I used EcoSmart Repellem bags. That was it. Everything else was the same: both trash bins were full of overripe food dregs, but only one bin was favorited by the gnats. My trash bin, with its Repellem trash bag, was absolutely and 100% insect-free.
It’s really, honestly true: EcoSmart Repellem trash bags will keep ALL insects away from your trash, no matter how smelly, ripe, or alluring your garbage might be to a bug.
Think how much cleaner, and how much SAFER your home would be with EcoSmart Repellem products in every room!
Summer might be be here officially yet, but it’s here, all the same. Just ask the insects!
It’s time to get out a couple of EcoSmart Repellem trash bags, cut them up, and put the pieces in your cabinets and cupboards. This will keep away the ants, weevils, roaches, and any other bug that might otherwise think your food storage places would be good dwelling places.
It’s also time to throw an EcoSmart Repellem bag in each clothes closet or clothing storage bureau or bag in your home. Those folded winter woolens in the bin under your bed would be a perfect hangout for insects this summer. Don’t let that happen to your family’s good clothing!
All you have to do is put an EcoSmart Repellem product of some kind in each storage bin, and you’re protected from all insects!
It even keeps moths away from your family’s woolens!
Many parents securely fasten a strip of Repellem plastic UNDERNEATH their child’s mattress to make sure insects don’t crawl into the crib and onto the child in the night. HOWEVER, IF YOU DO THIS, BE SURE IT’S A SMALL STRIP OF REPELLEM, NOT A COMPLETE BAG, AND MAKE SURE THE STRIP IS FASTENED SECURELY. DO NOT PUT IT ON TOP OF THE CHILD’S MATTRESS, UNDER THE SHEET!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AND BE SURE YOU USE A VERY SMALL STRIP! EcoSmart Repellem products will not harm your child if touched or tasted, but it is vitally important to keep all plastic bags away from our children for suffocation reasons.
If you use EcoSmart Repellem products throughout your home this summer, you’re assured that no bugs will want to make YOUR home THEIR home.
I’ve done this for a couple of years now, and we haven’t seen a single ant, moth, weevil, or roach inside the house yet. And I live WAY out in the country, in bugland!
