Product Review: Yard Gard Eco Kill Insect Spray


I was sent several bottles of Eco Kill to try out on my garden this year to see if it would help keep the insects away naturally. I tried Eco Kill out because its all natural and non toxic and it’s safe around children and animals. I sprayed my vegetables and herbs with it several times.

The D. Landreth Seed Company has been around since 1784 and is billed as America’s oldest seed company. Last week the company announced that their loan has been called in and their accounts had been frozen. So they launched a campaign to raise one million dollars by selling copies of their 2012 heirloom seed catalog to raise the necessary funds in 30 days or they’d have to close forever.
