ABOUT THE COMPANY Our company is guided by a simple idea: “preserve the good, prevent the rest.” We believe business has a larger role to play than delivering products or profits. Companies should take the lead to protect the health of humans, animals and the environment to create opportunities where they don’t exist today.
That’s our vision for EarthKind. We were first to make effective botanical pest prevention products as an alternative to poisonous pest control. It’s part of our larger effort to eliminate the use of harmful chemicals in the home and in the environment.
Our mission is to reduce people’s reliance on harmful pest control products from 90% today to 50% by 2025. Achieving this means empowering people with education. EarthKind is leading a movement of women and families who demand safe, sustainable alternatives. By providing naturally designed products that really work, consumers are prepared to make healthier choices. We’re changing people’s minds and behaviors as well as their options.
After using Terro to rid bathroom of ants, it just brought more ants. I threw away the Terro and tried this product. The ants disappeared from the bathroom in question, but moved to 2 other rooms. Additional Stay Away Ants has deterred them everywhere now. And, bonus, it smells nice
We know it works, but it's always good to hear it from our customers... makes certain we're not drunk on our own beer as they say. Thank you for sharing.

They work, y'all!
In Texas, little "sugar ants" come in to your house in the hotter months - it's a fact of life. They come looking for water, but if they find your pantry (and they always do!), they stick around to see what else they might find. Once I put this in my pantry, they steered clear - for the entire summer! (which is like half the year in Texas). Seriously - one bag inside the pouch lasted at least 6 months. I'm honestly amazed.
Huge appreciation for this post. It's sometimes a challenge to switch from traditional bug-killing, toxic products to something natural and healthy for all. Thank you!
