In this day and age, with all the technical advances pushed upon us as consumers, it is difficult at times to search through all the proper information and figure out what products are safe and which ones are just being listed as "safe". Nowadays we are going to have to have a clear definition of what safe really means and then define it on our own terms. Especially when children and pets are concerned.
After exhaustive research and looking at all of the products available for bug control, we at bunkbeds.net came to the conclusion that Orange Guard is 100% safe to use on kids bunk beds. This is the only product that we can ethically endorse based on our own research efforts.
Bedbugs have become a nationwide concern and new outbreaks occur on a regular basis. They are perhaps the hardest bug to track down and eradicate. Most people will have to end up calling in a professional exterminator to get rid of the problem, and in many cases it will require follow-up visits to make sure that re-infestation does not occur. Bedbugs seek out small cracks and hidden holes to live in. Many companies nowadays actually use sniffer dogs to help locate the bedbugs in a bedroom. They may be hiding in the cracks of the floor, dressers, walls and of course parts of the bed.
We recommend applying Orange Guard to all of the beds in the home, especially any that are being occupied by children. We specialize in kids bunk beds and understand the commitment to safety that needs to be in place where children are concerned. Children are our future and need to be protected from toxic concerns that are present both now and in the future.
During our investigation into safe pest control applications we were shocked to find out that the substances the government deem to be "safe" are not what our customers feel is safe, where their children and pets are concerned. The government is not able to keep up with the sheer volume of chemicals that need to be tested as they are introduced to the market. Until they are fully examined they cannot be listed as hazardous and many companies use chemicals that have not been fully tested yet. Also, once testing has been done, the results must show that the chemical can lead to a substantial illness before it receives a hazardous label.
While bedbugs are a concern for any parent, in the past it all came down to the lesser of two evils when choosing between using toxic chemicals or trying to prevent these nasty creatures from first entering the beds. Today, Orange Guard provides a safe alternative so that parents have a clear choice. The product uses all natural ingredients that really get the job done.
Make no mistake about it; bedbugs can cause chaos in a home. They can spread from one bedroom to the next like wildfire affecting all the inhabitants of the house. A sleeping child can awaken with small bites covering their body and suffer from intense itching until the bedbugs are removed and the swelling goes down. In some cases a child can react violently to bedbug bites due to an allergy. The next morning the parents can wake up with the same bites and the suffering goes on and on until the exterminator arrives.
As a company that deals with parents and their concerns for their childrens safety on a daily basis, we at bunkbeds.net need to have full confidence when endorsing any product and do not take this responsibility lightly. We have found that Orange Guard is a safe and effective product that can be sprayed onto kids bunk beds to help in the prevention of bedbugs.
I had a real problem with sugar ants.This stuff really controls them!!!
And you can spray it right on your food preparation area. Just think about it -- roaches won't be running around on your counter tops at night! They will avoid it and possibly go to your neighbor's house! This guy on the internet once told me that he lived next to a McDonalds that got tented and fumigated. Up till that time he said he had no insect problems. But after they treated the McDonalds he said he had thousands of roaches all of a sudden! How freaky is that??? Sounds like the insects are smart enough to run away from poisons and seek greener pastures! Unlike humans that accept the poison as a part of life and end up with mysterious diseases later on in life!
Thank you for Orange Guard. I live in the country and six months out of every year I am inundated with ants. Chemical sprays are not an option.. Having tried unsuccessfully all of the usual recommended natural products such as bay leaves, cayenne pepper, orange peels, cucumber peelings, lemon oil and black pepper, they simply do not work. In desperation I purchased your Orange Guard and it does work For the first time in years I am ant free. Thank you again.
Oh my word!!!!
What a fantastic product. It works beautifully and safely and I am having a heck of a time finding it again in my remote area. (North central
Do you make a flea wash for dogs with the orange 'magic' in it? That could be your next project...
Thank you for making something safe for us to use.
With much appreciation,
Since we had our home built in 2003, we've been plagued with a recurring ant problem. We'd paid hundreds of dollars for professional treatments which worked - for a while and only after days of waiting and worrying about the effects of the chemicals used. The "professional" told us the only way to keep these tiny ants away was to keep our showers and sinks dry at all times. Who has time for that?!?
We tried using the "natural/plant-based" products on the market, but they still left a strong odor and fumes in enclosed areas which made me worry about their safety. Our house is currently up for sale, and the last thing I want is potential buyers coming in and smelling insect spray.
After one application of Orange Guard in our kids' bathroom, the ants died instantly and didn't come back. Every time I see insects in or around our home, I spray Orange Guard and feel confident knowing it will work and not harm my family's health.
Thank you for making such a wonderful product. Being able to use something that is safe, smells good and works consistently really gives me peace of mind.

I am thrilled beyond belief that Orange Guard may have eradicated a terrible dust mite problem in my bed, rugs, window treatments and upholstery. I bought a fine mist atomizer so as not to saturate my bedding and so far, it seems to be working. I bought my Orange Guard at the local health food store. For me, this is an absolute miracle as the itchy rashes were making me very uncomfortable most every night. I am so grateful for this product. Thank you from Jupiter, Florida.
I've recently moved into a great master bedroom suite
rental and the one snag was the ant/spider problem I
discovered in the bathroom. I felt uncomfortable
showering and didn't want the insects to cross over to
the bedroom area.
I discoverd your product at Country Sun, Palo Alto, CA
and I Love It! No more ants and spiders!
An added benefit: the mold in the bathroom tiles I was
going to have a cleaning service scrub away has also
been dissolved by Orange Guard! Maybe you could create a general house cleaning product line!!
Please feel free to add my comment to your website.
Thanks so much,

I just wanted to take this opportunity, to express our satisfaction with your product Orange Guard. We are a small community hospital in the San Francisco Bay Area and at times we believe the hospital was built on an anthill!
Over the past several years we have tried numerous products, most worked to kill the ants, but our problem is the environment we work in. Being in an acute care hospital we have many patients with compromised immune systems, respiratory illnesses and are just not feeling well. These products may have worked, but the toxicity of them and the smell was unacceptable. We just could no longer use these products in patient areas. Trying to find an alternative, one of our engineers picked up a bottle of Orange Guard at the local hardware store. We were pleasantly surprised with the results. The product not only worked great, but we did not receive one complaint about the smell. Patients seemed to respond better knowing that what was being sprayed was non-toxic and pleasant smelling.
Since using the product about six months ago we are continually buying more. Last week alone we purchased six bottles. We are now using the product in all patient care and non-patient care areas. The product works, is non-toxic and smells great, what's not to like?

I have been using your product for several years with great success and just had to share my experience with you. Living in the Midwest, from late summer through fall, YellowJackets, fly into the house anytime a door is opened. They are angry and if you attempt to hit them with a fly swatter and miss......expect to be stung! However.....I find that if they land anywhere, even on a screen, I just spray them over and over until soaked. The pesty insect falls to the ground and expires within minutes! No stings, no pain, and the whole process does not attract additional YellowJackets. Thanks for a great, easy to use product.
We have had an infestation of crickets, ants and roaches here in the desert. I have used Orange Guard and found they disappear. I went to the store to replace your product and found they were already out of your product. I ordered it through them and returned to find they again were almost gone. I then found it in a catalogue and ordered the gallon. Tonight I have had a ball spraying all the hundreds of crickets that have made a home in our outdoor furniture and under the siding of our home. While I was discovering the crickets and their outdoor habitat, I also came across 3 black widows and rid our home of these too, plus I may add a 3 inch desert roach (I think they call them this because it sounds kinder to name these 3 inch monsters a name having to do with our natural habitat.)
I bought a bottle for my daughter as well, and last night she sprayed a light film on her sheet in desperation, to repel two mosquitoes,(thinking of the Nile virus.) It worked she spent a quiet night and woke to go after the ants that have plagued her. For the last 35 years I and my family have eaten organically, so to find your product is a gift from heaven.
I have a spray guy I had contacted a month ago to come and give me advice on what to do with the plague of 3 inch roaches, he comes to our isolated desert town only once a month, so this Friday, he will be here with a synthetic chrysanthemum product, and I can now tell him I won't need any toxic sprays, this one is purported to be the least toxic, and we finally had become frantic and were at least going to talk to him about spraying outside. My nephew is selling outdoor camping clothing impregnated with this spray, maybe this would be a possibility for use of your product. who knows. WE SO NEEDED YOUR BRAIN STORM. THANK YOU, THANK YOU.
P.S. How can I purchase stock in your company? I would honestly consider this, I believe in your product so much.

Just wanted to let you know we ordered Orange Guard from our local Ace Hardware and have used it on a huge pile of red ants, flies in the pasture (even sprayed a bit of it on the horses and they were instantly relieved of the nuisance) flies in the chicken coop, and insects in the house. We started out with the small bottle and went crazy with it, so went back and got the gallon refill to keep the insects under control. Within 24 hours, the ant hill was deserted, the flies were gone from the chicken coop, and the horses were not constantly fighting annoying flies. With West Nile making an appearance in our area, I'm so glad to have something to help deter the mosquitos. We'll definitely be taking our Orange Guard camping on our trail ride next month! This product works better than any other insect killer I've seen, smells wonderful, and I don't get the instant lung seize I notice when I use Raid or some other commercial product.
Thanks, and keep up the good work!

Want to tell you how great I think Orange Guard is. I'm in a top floor apartment in San Francisco and whenever I leave my unscreened windows open (on those rare warm nights here) . . . in come the flies and mosquitoes. Get eaten by the mosquitoes and, with 3 cats, well, let's just say I have a Flying Circus all night! Tried all the regular toxic sprays around the windows and, while they worked, after a night of breathing that stuff, I'd get up in the morning not knowing whether to brush my face or shave my teeth. So I tried this Orange Guard and sprayed it around the window frames and . . . no flies, no mosquitoes, no circus, and no "confusion" at the mirror in the morning. And the smell is really good. I would buy a candle scented with this stuff . . . it smells great . . . and I don't buy stuff like scented candles!
San Francisco, CA
You saved my life!!! (Well, sort of) I had a GIGANTIC palmetto bug shooting across my apartment this morning and I was absolutely terrified! I got out the Raid, "the good stuff" (phooey!) and sprayed him point blank from about four feet, just soaking the thing. Nothing!! I found him under my chest of drawers just having a heyday! I was so angry!! I absolutely soaked my carpet with that smelly poison for nothing! Well, I couldn' t get him for a while, but he searched me out for a second round while I was in the bathroom. Ohhh, let me tell you, I' d rather face a cobra. Well, this time I got out my fresh smelling dog and bird friendly (I have pets) Orange Guard and let him have it!! Two coughs and three kicks later, he was a goner! Hallelujah!!!! I learned my lesson. The Raid goes in the garbage and I' m telling all my friends to do the same and go get some Orange Guard! Can you tell I' m happy? I was going to write a disgruntled letter to Raid, but they' re too chicken to put the address on the container. I would be too!

Thanks for making a great product. We have a 3 year old around the house and we feel better knowing the history of the product. That we feel safer to use your product for our ant problem.
I've used Orange Guard for the past 2 years to get rid of ants in my house. I live in a mobile home and am plagued with snails who get up under my windows and leave a mess. I don't want to use toxic materials. On the way home from work last night a "light bulb" flashed try Orange Guard! I did and it works absolutely great!!! this morning there were no snails! I'll bet my neighbors will like having that mess gone, too.
I just wanted to let you know that your product is fantastic! I was reaching new levels of frustration with our ant problem and was feeling less and less comfortable with my housemate's tendency to indiscriminately throw boric acid all over the kitchen. She kept saying it was non-toxic, but I read the label. In any case, it didn't even work.
I just bought Orange Guard and I can't believe how effective it is. That, along with the safety and pleasant smell make for an incredible resource. You've got a lifetime customer here.
I refuse to use any other product on the market. I am amazed as to how fast it will zap roaches. I live in Florida and we have plenty of them and I especially hate the flying ones. Please keep up the good work and do not stop making this product.
Please send me information on where to purchase Orange Guard. A friend had some and it works wonderfully. The smell is very pleasant and it is not harmful to humans. All of my ants were disposed of !!!

I used Orange Guard for the first time this weekend. I am very pleased . . . OK, ecstatic . . . with this stuff! Not only does it smell good, I can use it in my vents and anywhere else I want. I sprayed it around some potted plants where ants seem to congregate and I saw immediate evidence on how well it works. I live in south Florida, so this will become a "must have" for my household. I have told all my friends up north and my neighbors here about your product. God bless and keep up the good work!
I just wanted to say I purchased your product after seeing it on the shelf of a local hardware store along with some gel based ant bait from another company. Having wanted to take the safer, non-toxic route, I sprayed directly on the active problematic ant areas in and around the kitchen with Orange Guard first. Wiping the many dead ants, I couldn't believe it, there were no more coming back! It was hard to believe that after months of being invaded, I was free from ant tyranny, all without resorting to toxic chemicals which I never had to use thanks to Orange Guard.
Thanks for creating such a great and effective product. It's refreshing to purchase a product that actually performs as advertised.
Thank you for supporting the rainforest. We love your product. It's safe and effective.
We just want to thank you for one of the best products we've found to date. It even killed a spider! We haven't even done the whole house yet, but one little spraying session in the two worst rooms, and we haven't seen any more since. Wonderful product! . . .I will most definitely tell all of my friends and family about your great product, and urge them to try some.
. . .thank you for being such a genius and inventing Orange Guard.
I have to tell you my Orange Guard story . . . Every summer since my husband and I bought our house, we have had a huge ant problem! This gets to be such a huge issue because I CANNOT stand ants! I have gone through countless cans of Raid and other items to try and get rid of these pests, but they keep returning. The other night my mother suggested I try the Orange Guard that she had purchased . . . Since it wasn't a name I was used to or familiar with, I was rather skeptical, but tried it to please my mother. To my amazement, I have not seen one ant since I used it that night NOT ONE! I am in heaven! (You have to know how much I HATE ants!!) Your product has thrilled me so much, I can't begin to tell you! I have been telling everyone I know about your product and how wonderful it is! Thank you, thank you, thank you so much for Orange Guard!
I want to thank you for selling Orange Guard to me. This is the only thing I found to kill ants and keep them away. It only took 20+ years to get free of the ants.
What a great product. I ordered 2 gallons last year. I did not have an ant problem the rest of the summer.
This year, due to high water tables and cold temperatures, we had another infestation of ants. We tracked them back to their entry point and used the Orange Guard . . . The ants left and have stayed out. Once they were gone, we sprayed the basement and the entire perimeter of the house. The ants have not returned.
We spray the Orange Guard occasionally even when we don't see ants, just as a preventative. It's nice that I don't have to worry about toxic chemicals or my family or pets inhaling toxic chemicals.
Thanks for making an effective non-toxic product.
New Hope, PA
Living in Florida, ants become a real problem, especially in the rainy season. I was troubled with ants. An exterminator got rid of them for about two months, then back they came. Highly toxic sprays like Insecta had only temporary results. Thank God I was an ad for your product in a catalog and decided to take a chance on it. The ants are gone, gone, gone, forever and have never returned. I'll sure pass the word about your product to all my friends.
I had to write to you as I ordered your amazing Orange Guard for the first time ever just before spring of this year. I ordered the big gallon size. I'll tell you that your product is so gosh darn great that I still can't believe how wonderful it works.
I have a little Maltese about 8 pounds, and I was glad that is wasn't harmful to animals. . . . I didn't have one flea in this house or an ant or a spider. You name it and I didn''t have it in my house with Orange Guard.
I also want to say that it lasts a very long time . . . .The smell is not bad at all. I smells really pretty good for a pesticide. I just love it, I even let my neighbor have a few sprays here and there in her home. She was as impressed as I am. I will order again and again from you, believe me, for your product is the only product I have ever tried that really works, and I have tried everything on the market over the years.
Thank you so much for whoever in your company cam up with this product, as who he was or she was is as smart as a whip when they thought of this product.
I want you to know that you may use this letter if you want to, to let everyone know how I feel about Orange Guard. They will be amazed when they try it.
wanted to thank you for letting me be one of the first people
to try Orange Guard. It's nice to finally find a product that
not only smells wonderful, but is completely safe to use around
my dog and cats. I am a definite fan of Orange Guard and will
be a user for life."
I didn't want to use a poison
to kill ants because I have a 2-and-a-half- year-old, an 8-month-old,
and pets. It's a relief to have an all natural product that I
can safely spray near my children and that works!"
After 35 years
of ants in my house and being unable to use any other poison
due to health problems of my wife I sprayed in several spots
as the ants appeared. It now appears that this house is completely
ant free. You have a marvelous product for anyone who must destroy
ants inside the house. I highly recommend you product.
"I would never use
any toxic products or have them in my home, but then I heard
about Orange Guard and tried it. It was wonderful."
It works! My ant problems
cleared up immediately, and my son has not had any problems with
me using this product around the house. I've even started using
this outdoors in my yard with my two dogs and three cats out
there with great success.
