I've used EcoSmart Ant & Roach Spray for about 4 years. I've tried all the other natural stuff like vinegar, Windex, etc. I won't use a truly toxic product in the house around my dogs. The spray works right away, and has a wonderful, fresh-mint smell. I've had friends ask, "Wow, what smells so good?" If they made an an freshener, it would be the best available.
The residual effect of EcoSmart is not as persistent as the sprays with the *Poison* warnings. For the reviewer who said the can would not empty completely, you must read the directions. This product is a mixture of mint & canola oil. It has to be shaken VERY vigorously to combine the ingredients &, ensure that it is effectively dispensed. Love, love, love it.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0Â by MadzGirl I'm not sure about this one...
The product seems to work well. I used the product last night and the ants were all killed on contact. This morning I saw a straggler ant but haven't seen any since. However, the lack of ants truly can not make up for the smell! I used the product on a very small area of my apartment and the smell overpowered the entire place. It smells similar to Bengay. I opened the door and all of my windows, had a fan on, washed the area of the floor I used the product on and can still smell it! Furthermore, I think the smell irritated my dog's sense of smell too. He ran away from the area immediately and was rubbing at his nose and sneezing. I am very tolerant to different odors but this was just way too strong!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by DCDiane AMAZING!!!!
This is the only product that has ever rid my house of ants. I tried the traps & other sprays and the ants kept coming. This product works and it is pet safe. It has a great wintergreen smell and after spraying the area ants come in from (my dog's doggie door area), the ants stay away for 3-4 weeks. Then I just re-treat. It is truly an amazing product!!! Please, please never discontinue this product! It's hard enough to find it and I just can't bear another summer without it.

We have VERY persistent ants, and roaches that pretty much hang out in the sliding glass door track waiting to come in for crumbs under our table each summer--GROSS! This summer, I was determined not to put up with it anymore. But I have 3 small children and will not use chemical sprays. I have been using this spray to cut off the entry point where ants come in; they have found new entry points that I blocked off the same way...each time I have used this product, the ants never came back from the same entry point, and now they are gone. I sprayed pretty heavily along the sliding door track, and now I just do not find bugs in our house like before! No more roaches hanging out. Just re-spray as needed. Use it wisely, though. I learned the first time I sprayed it all over the floor, leaving a strong wintergreen smell and an oily residue! (Clean up with dish-soapy water.) Nothing wrong with a little wintergreen smell, but it can be overpowering. The key is using it ONLY on the point of entry--not everywhere, not along the whole trail of ants inside the house (use a milder product like windex or Ortho Elementals soybean-oil-based home insect killer, or just a piece of packaging tape to pick up the trail of ants inside once the entry point is blocked off). Also, wipe up excess product when used indoors, just like the instructions say. I plan to treat the entire outdoor perimeter of our house as well. I am so grateful to have found this product. Our home is not gross anymore :)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by florence Excellent insect killer
This product was excellent in killing very small black insects (~ 1mm, not ants) with hard shell, that were able to walk everywhere even up to the ceiling and cross the room upside down on the ceiling. These insects came in from the garden and set nests in 3 of my rooms. It was difficult to see these bugs, being extremely small, especially on a dark floor. This product has a strong smell but it fortunately vanishes after few hours. I would definitely recommend it for those insects (sorry, I am not sure about their classification [name, species] or else).
