Natural and Safe for Pets

A lot of people commented they got this ant killer because it was safe for their pets as opposed to some of the other poisons on the market.  Here is a pet owner's comment about this product, "I bought this because it was all natural. I did feel uneasy about using insecticides because I have cats, and I was concerned about their well-being.  So I sprayed this around the areas where I had seen ants in my kitchen. I also sprayed around my doorways. I have been finding big piles of dead ants in various places in my house, even in places where I did not spray.  I’m finding far more dead ants than I ever imagined were in my house. I will be buying this again and I will be spraying it regularly throughout the rest of the winter, and spring and summer."

Works Fast and It's Eco Friendly

A lot of other ant killers work great but they aren't so good for the environment.  When the other poisons wash away in the rain, it goes into the soil and water.  But with this ant killer there isn't anything that will do damage to the environment.  Here is a comment about the eco-friendliness of this product, "I don't know how such an eco-friendly insecticide can work so well, but it does.  I had an ant problem that I attempted to fix using several very toxic products. Nothing worked. Then I sprayed this EcoRaider inside the basement along the rim joists. Within 2-days, no ants! I couldn't believe how effective it was so I tried it again in another section of the house that was also having the same tiny ant problem that wouldn't succumb to other sprays and ant bait poisons."

It Does Have a Scent

Comments about the scent ranged from it was fine and not a problem to people wouldn't buy it again because of the scent.  Keep in mind that chemical ant killers also have a scent.  At least this spray is all natural.

The EcoRaider Ant and Crawling Insect Killer is an all natural way to get rid of ants.  It is a spray so it will only kill the ants on contact, as opposed to a bait poison that will eventually kill the whole colony as they feed off of it.  Ants should die within 1 minute of spraying them.  It does have a scent that bothered some people, but didn't bother others.

Common Questions

Here are some top questions that I found for people considering buying the EcoRaider Ant Killer & Crawling Insect Killer.

  • chevron-circle-right
    Is it safe to use in a plant terrarium? The insecticidal soap I have is not working and am looking for something more aggressive but safe for plants. You can try diluting it 10 times for using directly on plant, that is 1 portion of EcoRaider and 10 portion of water, which will remain effectiveness and same time avoid leaf burn. But before applying, you should test on small area of the plant if it is an expensive one.
