Since EcoSMART’s proprietary botanical oil blends attack attributes that are specific only to pests, they have no effect on people, pets or the environment. The primary active ingredients in EcoSMART products are approved as Direct Food Additives or classified as GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration. These oils are commonly used to add flavor and aroma to many cosmetic, beverage and food products, including cake, candy, sweetener, gum, soft drinks, and lipstick. Children and pets are safe. No need to clear them out after application or be concerned if they are near our products. Our products have no adverse effect on mammals, birds, and fish and also will not contaminate water sources.

I didn't know a lot about what an insect bomb was before today. I mean, I knew the basics but I had no idea that they were so ineffective. I would much rather use an organic repellent that is safe for my dogs and myself.
I also had no idea that millipedes in house can actually be a good thing. Looking at a millipede, your first instinct would probably be to kill it (that would be my first reaction) but they are actually natural recyclers.
