Product Review: Yard Gard Eco Kill Insect Spray

ECOKILL_32_oz_Bottle_front__25157.1376598192.1280.1280

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. I also gave a bottle to my mom to use on her garden and she liked that it was all natural and didn’t have a bad smell.

America’s Oldest Seed Company Needs Your Help

D-Landreth-Seed-Company-Seed-Catalog1-287x400

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.
