EarthKind Stay Away products are a pest repellent you can feel good about using in your home. Their all natural formula made with all natural products, including essential oils repels pesky visitors. EarthKind is guided by a simple idea: “preserve the good, prevent the rest.”
I received a box of free EarthKind samples to test in my home, all opinions are my own.
EarthKind Stay Away
Did you know one in three homes will deal with some sort of pest infestation? Most people use harsh chemicals, or nasty traps that could leave a dead mouse in your pantry for who knows how long. Ants are unavoidable as well, and I don’t know about you but I don’t want to spray poison in my kitchen where I prepare food (or anywhere else in my home). I was excited to learn about a new all-natural product available to take care of these pesky problems, EarthKind.
I live in the country and unwanted pests are certainly an issue from time to time. This year I have had to fight off ants and mice in my home and it’s really been a full-out battle. I am also becoming more aware of what I use in my home, and have begun leaning towards more natural products as opposed to harmful chemicals.
What Is Stay Away?

- Stay Away®‘s patented pouch design delivers a long-lasting, slow release of proven essential oils, quickly repelling pests from treated areas, and reliably preventing re-infestation for up to three months.
Does Stay Away Work?
We have had a few weeks of rain here in Maryland, and not only did that bring out mosquitoes, but it also brought ants into my home looking for refuge from the storms. This was the perfect opportunity for me to try Stay Away Ants and Stay Away Mosquitoes.
Stay Away Mosquitoes
I will never buy another bug spray again, that is how good Stay Away Mosquitoes is. This unscented, skin friendly formula lasts 14 hours keeping away mosquitoes and ticks. This gave me piece of mind while my kids were at summer camp, as they only had to apply once a day. It also repels biting flies, gnats and chiggers for up to 8 hours. This non-flammable, water-resistant formula is also EPA registered as it is made with Picaridin, a CDC recommended ingredient for the prevention of mosquito bites, and Zika virus.
Stay Away Ants
There is nothing I hate more than ants in my kitchen, and this year has been insane with them. Stay Away Ants is made with lemongrass, peppermint and thyme, all are proven scents ants hate. While the scent may be offensive to the ants, it actually filled my kitchen with a fresh earthy scent once I placed the pouches under the pantry and cupboards.
Within six hours I wasn’t wiping ants off my counter tops anymore, I would certainly call that a success. The pouch has been in place for two weeks, and I haven’t had a recurrence in my kitchen.
Before you head to the store and buy more harsh chemicals, give Earth Kind Stay Away products a try. You can find them online or at retailers such as Target and Lowe’s.
