The warm weather is ending and the cooler air has arrived. Now all of those insects and rodents that were enjoying the pleasant outdoors need a warm place. This means they will do anything to find a way to come inside your home. Beetles, mice, ants all need warmth too but we don’t want them inside. Sprays and foggers are loaded with so many chemicals there are warnings right on the bottles to not breathe in and stay away when you spray. If you have children you can’t keep them away from entrances and openings inside the house. Whoever put those products on the market never owned a pet or had a crawling toddler. Stay Away is truly a safe repellant and it freshens at the same time as well as protects your home from critters.


Tips on keeping critters outside of your home by Kari Warberg Block, pest prevention expert and founder of earthkind® and Stay Away® natural pest prevention products:

  1. Block their passageways. Inspect the outside of your home for holes, cracks or gaps. Pay special attention to areas around siding, chimneys, soffits, dormers and dryer vents. Spray-foam insulation will stop most bugs, but steel wool and silicone caulk offer the best protection from all pests — even rats and mice.
  2. A Leaky Faucet or Pipe Is an Entryway for Ants. They are drawn towards moisture and an unrepaired opening is like putting out a welcome mat at your door. Fix any drips and ants will be looking for a more inviting dwelling.
  3. Wash it first. Pests like moths and spiders love quiet, undisturbed places. Anything in storage is a dream home and the contents inside provide the perfect feast. Wash all towels, blankets, clothing and fabrics you’re planning on storing to make sure there’s nothing for moths to feed on. Moth larvae don’t just feed on furs, silk and wool – they love any organic material like stray hairs, fur shed by pets, and sweat or body oils left behind.
  4.  Save the spiders! Just not their webs. Spiders put a lot of effort into weaving their silky webs, so they don’t like it when you disturb them. They also don’t like the high pitched vibration of a vacuum. Use a vacuum hose to clear out spider webs and creepy crawlers will be on their way to a more peaceful home.
  5. Use a natural pest repellent. You can prevent a pest infestation before it begins with alternatives like Stay Away® natural pest prevention pouches. Stay Away® repels rodents, ants, spiders, moths and beetles without the use of harmful chemicals or poisons, making it safe to use around children and pets.


You will appreciate the ingredients in Stay Away so much better. You only need one pouch per cupboard or small-sized room and you can add another pouch if you need for larger spaces. You can put a bag in your RV. cars that sit, farm and yard riders, garage, sheds, crawl spaces and drop ceilings. Anywhere you don’t want pests to enter, set out a bag. Stay Away is the first all natural pest prevention line made entirely of essential oils and plant fiber. I keep a spider pouch right beside our front door where they like to come in from the porch.

It is safe for humans, pets and environment. Above is the ingredient list for the Stay Away Moths. Spiders, Ants and Rodent varieties have similar ingredients with different essential oils that work best for their repel.


You can get your home protection shipped from http://www.earthkind.com/shop or find it at retailers like Lowes, Ace Hardware, Co-Ops, Target and more. Make sure you follow Stay Away on social media too so you can keep up on promotions and announcements.
