    Tick season is here and they can wreak havoc on you and your pet.

    Check out some natural and safe ways to keep ticks at bay this summer:

    Diatomaceous Earth – Diatomaceous Earth (aka – DE) is a white powder made from the fossilized remains of little aquatic organisms called diatoms, and while it’s completely safe for humans and animals to ingest, it’s deadly for bugs. It damages their exoskeleton and causes them to die of dehydration. Since DE isn’t a poison, ticks can’t grow immune to it, so it remains effective year after year. Apply it to areas around your home and your pets.

    Free Range Chickens – Chickens will eat all sorts of bugs and even ticks too! Let them loose in your yard and they will be a natural pest control solution!

    Garlic – Ticks hate garlic. If you’re planning a camping trip or a hike outside, eat plenty of garlic beforehand to repel ticks.

    Yard Work – Make sure your yard stays mowed and all shrubs trimmed back. Ticks live in high brush and grass areas so the less area available to them, the less you will see ticks!

    Cedar Oil Spray – Cedar oil is a non-toxic, natural tick and insect repellent. It can be sprayed directly on clothing and skin. It is safe for use on humans and pets. Not only does cedar oil repel ticks and other irritating insects, but it kills them. Pick up some cedar oil at your local pet store or online.

    While we distribute around the world, we truly are a small business and pride ourselves on carrying the highest quality odor eliminating products that are safe for our environment and 100% made in the USA!

    We would like to share our story with you about how Earth Care Products was born:

    Hello, I am Bill Vaughan founder and owner of Clear the Air, Earth Care Products. Over 20 years ago I was working in corporate America as an engineer/marketing executive when the trend of corporate downsizing was in full swing. Three times I had a comfortable job making good money for a good company. Three times those companies were bought out or merged, making my job and many others either redundant or unnecessary. But I hold no grudges; instead I took my lesson to the streets and went into business for myself.

    A friend of mine told me about a small company that had a “miracle” product for removing odors. I was so impressed with the way the product removed odors I decided to buy into the company. Over 16 years ago Earth Care Products was born which manufactures and sells odor eliminating products through pet stores (PetCo), on line, and pest control distributors. One of the things that I like best about our product is that it is all natural and non toxic. It will not hurt mother earth and it is safe even if you or your pet eats it.

    We do all our manufacturing and packaging in the USA . Product assembly and shipping is done at Partnership With Industry (PWI). PWI provides job preparation, job placement and ongoing workplace support for adults with disabilities. PWI assists their clients to find meaningful work, earn a paycheck and achieve the pride and independence that employment brings. I feel this is a great opportunity for our company to serve our community.

    I invite you to try our products, I know you will find they work better than any other product you have tried for removing odors. We offer a 100% money back guarantee if you are not completely satisfied. Just call us if you have any questions.

    If you are interested in distributing our products please contact me.  bvaughan@cleartheair.com

    Dead animal odor?

    Earth Care’s Clear the Air Odor Remover Bags will take care of the smell!

    Dead rodents can die in your wall and often you are unable to find the carcass to remove it. Earth Care Odor Remover Bags are used by Pest Control Professionals to remove dead animal smells, and urine and feces odors associated with rodents. Dead animal removal is not necessary to remove the odors.

    Earth Care Bags do not have to come into contact with dead rodent or odor causing agent. Simply hang the bag near the odor and in 24 hours the odor will be gone. Earth Care acts like a magnet by attracting and neutralizing smells. It is an all natural dead rodent odor remover, is non toxic and biodegradable and safe for Planet Earth. It is also safe around children and pets, even if eaten. Earth Care absorbs dead animal odors rather than masking them with a fragrance.

    How to Eliminate Dead Animal Smells & Related Urine/Feces Odors

    • It is not necessary to remove dead carcass to remove the odor.
    • More bags =better faster results, we recommend a minimum of 3 bags.
    • Hang a bag in every room you smell odor.
    • If you believe dead animal is in attic or crawl space hang one bag there also.
    • Bag will outlast odor from carcass and handle any urine or feces odors that may exist from previously infested areas.
    • One bag covers up to 100 square feet. It will last 3-4 months in use, or indefinitely in plastic wrap.
      Minimum of three bags needed to remove dead Rodent/Animal odors.

  • How To Make Your Home Safer For Your Pets

    Fall is here and the cooler weather is right around the corner. Clear The Air would like to share how you can prepare your house for fall to make it a safe and healthy environment for your pets.

    • Flea Control – Summer is over, but that doesn’t mean you need to stop controlling fleas on your pets and in your house. Flea protection should be used all year long. The cooler weather will allow you to control the fleas easier. Your veterinarian can help you with a flea prevention plan that is best for your pet to use all year long.
    • Put Away School Supplies – Back to school items, such as glue and glue sticks, can be dangerous for your pet if large amounts are ingested. Keep those pencils, pens, markers and other school essentials away from your pets. Pencils and pens can cause blockages if they are swallowed by your pet.
    • Remove Wild Mushrooms – Fall is the perfect time for wild mushrooms to grow. Most are not toxic, but the poisonous mushrooms can be fatal to your pet. If you think your pet has eaten wild mushroom, call your veterinarian immediately. Symptoms can range from gastrointestinal problems to hallucinations.
    • Avoid Rodenticides – During the colder months, rodents look for warmer places to shelter. Rodenticides can be toxic to pets and cause bleeding disorders.  Consider using alternative ways to get rid of rodents around your house. Also bee cautious letting your pets roam around your neighbor’s yard if they have used rodenticides to control their rodent problems.
    • Protect Heat Sources – Pets can be burned by portable heaters and fireplaces. Fireplaces should have screens in place to protect your pets from being severely burned. Don’t leave pets unattended around portable heaters when they are being used.
  • Top Ten Tips For Flea Control

    Summer is here and that means fleas!

    What type of flea treatment do you use for your pets? Here are a few tips to keep fleas at bay during the summer months:

    1. Flea treatments for your pets – There are various treatment options such as flea collars, flea dips, shampoos, spot-on treatments, or oral medications. Treatments are different for dogs and cats. Your Veterinarian can recommend which treatment is best for your pet.
    2. Rid your home of fleas – Not only are fleas jumping off your pets onto your furniture, but their eggs and larvae can be left all over your home. Thoroughly vacuuming floors and furniture and washing all bedding that your pet comes in contact with in hot water will help control or eliminate the infestation.
    3. Groom your pet daily – Use a fine-toothed metal flea comb on your pet to remove fleas and place the fleas you remove in soapy water. This should be done daily to keep the fleas under control.
    4. Use insecticides – You can do the treatments yourself or hire professionals exterminators. Non-toxic insecticides are also available. It is important to cover all food that could come into contact with the insecticide and keep you family and pets out of the house until it is safe to return.
    5. Place eucalyptus leaves around the house – The smell of eucalyptus is not appealing to fleas so the leaves help to keep them away. Place the leaves inside and outside the house in various locations. You can place them in glass jars to add decoration around the house.
    6. Create a set place for pets to sleep – It might be hard to change your pet’s habit, but having them sleep in a specific area can make regular cleaning your pet’s bedding easier. This way you only have to regularly clean one area of bedding instead of trying to find what your pet has been sleeping on.
    7. Avoid dangerous areas – When possible keeping cats indoors and taking your dogs for walks in open areas avoiding thick, long grass can reduce the fleas your pet may be exposed to. Maintaining your own yard can also cut down on the fleas that you and your pets come in contact with outside.
    8. Use natural oils – Many natural oils can keep fleas off of a pet’s fur. Lemongrass or a cut up lemon added to water can be lightly sprayed on their fur to keep the fleas away. Some natural oils that are safe for dogs can be toxic for cats, so always make sure you are using oils that are safe for your pet.
    9. Spray nematodes – For pet lovers who have gardens or spend time outside, using nematodes (worms) outside can reduce the number of flea larvae. Spray nematodes in shady spots outside and moist areas of the garden 2 to 3 times a year. This can reduce the number of fleas brought inside the house.
    10. Prevent year round – California has flea activity year round. The warmer months have a higher activity of fleas compared to the cooler months. Knowing when the activity in your area is the highest can help you to be prepared to prevent fleas. Using methods to control flea infestations year round is the best way to eliminate fleas on your pets and in your home.

  • Skunked!! Now What?

    Posted on June 11th, 2014
    admin No comments

    Your dog barks frantically, or maybe zooms off in another direction. Then you smell it. Skunk! Some escape with just a spritz, other dogs come back dripping in skunk juice. Not good.

    Skunks are nocturnal, or more accurately, crepuscular; active mainly at twilight, dawn and full moon (dimly light) nights. Skunks have a strong sense of smell and hear well, but do not see very well. They do, however, have very good aim with their offensive scent.

    The scent glands are similar to dog and cat anal glands. They are located on either side of the anus and produce an oily secretion. The secretion contains sulfur compounds (what produces the rotten egg smell).

    Skunks are adept as using their scent glands as a weapon against predators. Spraying is not the skunk’s first line of defense. They engage in a series of displays to ward off potential attacks before spraying. If a skunk feels threatened, they will hiss, stamp their feet and raise their tail as warning signs. A mother skunk with babies may spray offensively.

    Once they decide to spray, the tail goes up, and the offensive secretion is sent off to its target.

    Clear The Air Odor Eliminator for Skunk Odors will completely eliminate the smell from your dog, the furniture, carpets, lawn/shrubs, and you!!

    This unique form of Earth Care Products Mineral can be sprinkled directly on your pet, as well as inside and outside to eliminate skunk odors. Clear The Air does not have to come into contact with the odor producer; it will pull the odors from the entire area. Clear The Air draws in odors like a powerful magnet. The odors are adsorbed, and neutralized without any fragrances. Clear The Air does not cover up odors; it literally ”clears the air“ leaving the air fresh and clean.

    Clear The Air is made from an all-natural mineral, is non-toxic and biodegradable and safe for Planet Earth. It is safe around children and pets even if eaten. Granules are totally safe for all lawns and vegetation. No need to remove granules from your lawn or vegetation, as they provide an excellent time-released nitrogen fertilizer.

    Top ten tips for going green.

    Clear The Air is a green product and we care for the environment. It is important to take steps to go green at your home and we would like to share some helpful ways to do that:

    1. Use Clear The Air – Our product is an all green product to eliminate odors all around your home. Once the granules are saturated you can dispose of them in your garden.
    2. Use energy efficient light bulbs – Not only do CLSs save energy but they will save you money too; both on your electric bill and they last 10 times longer.
    3. Unplug your TV, computer and phone charger – Basically anything that glows or is used to make something else glow uses energy even if they aren’t being used.
    4. Recycle – Not just in the kitchen but your electronics as well. Items such as TVs, stereos, cell phones and computers can all be recycled and you can even get money for some of the items.
    5. Buy your produce locally – Most food in the grocery store has traveled around 1,500 miles before coming home with you. If you buy from a local farmer you are not only getting the freshest food possible but you are saving money all the way around.
    6. Check for leaks – Your home may have leaks in the toilet, sink, shower and more. A dripping faucet can waste up to 74 gallons a day. A leaking toilet can waste up to 200 gallons a day.
    7. Don’t mow your lawn as often – More length on your grass creates more surface area to absorb sunlight which will create a thicker turf and deeper roots.
    8. Buy energy efficient appliances – Look for the “Energy Star” logo on your appliances. They will use much less energy when you run them at home.
    9. Wash full loads – This goes for your dishwasher and washing machine. Most energy consumed by washers goes to heating the water.
    10. Use critters in your yard – Birds eat many insects. Just create a water source and trees and shrubs for cover and nesting. Ladybugs are great for your garden as they eat aphids. Visit The National Garden Association to find out other critters that are beneficial for your yard.
  • How To Keep Pests Out Of Your Home

    No one likes pests in their home.

    Unfortunately sometimes when we get rid of pests, such as mice and rodents, their odor can linger.

    Clear The Air Odor Eliminators will eliminate those odors easily and safely. Earth Care Bags do not have to come into contact with dead rodent or odor causing agent. Simply hang the bag near the odor and in 24 hours the odor will be gone. Earth Care acts like a magnet by attracting and neutralizing smells. It is made from an all natural mineral, is non toxic and biodegradable and safe for Planet Earth. It is also safe around children and pets, even if eaten. Earth Care adsorbs odors rather than masking them with a fragrance.

    Check out our tips to keep pests out of your home:

    Rodents and raccoons:

    • Raw bacon or peanut butter makes good bait for a mousetrap. Make sure a mouse will have to tug the trap to remove the bait. If you’re using peanut butter, dab some on the triggering device and let it harden before setting the trap. If bacon is your bait, tie it around the triggering device.
    • If a raccoon sets up housekeeping in your attic or chimney, chemical repellants such as oil of mustard, are temporarily effective. (The smell may bother you as much as it does the raccoon.) Your best bet is to let the animal leave, and then cover its entrance hole with wire mesh so that it cannot return.
    • To keep rodents out of your house, seal every opening they could squeeze through. Some need less than 1/4 inch of space. Put poison in deep cracks or holes, and stuff them with steel wool or scouring pads pushed in with a screwdriver. Close the spaces with spackling compound mixed with steel wool fragments.


    • If your home becomes infested with fleas, vacuum rugs thoroughly before spraying, and throw the dust bag out at once.
    • Keep ants away from your home with a concoction of borax and sugar. Mix 1 cup sugar and 1 cup borax in a quart jar. Punch holes in the jar’s lid, and sprinkle the mixture outdoors around the foundation of your home and around the baseboards inside your house. The ants are attracted by the sugar and poisoned by the borax.
    • If you have cockroaches, sprinkle borax powder in the kitchen and bathroom cabinets. Avoid sprinkling where children and pets could be affected.

    No one wants pests in their home.

    Unfortunately many solutions to getting rid of pesky pests involve harmful pesticides which are poisonous to you, your children and your pets.

    As a green product itself, Clear the Air likes to find green solutions to keeping pests out of your home.  We would like to share some helpful tips on keeping your home pest free, naturally!

    Before spreading poison throughout your living environment, which you, your children, and pets will breathe in, try these all-natural alternatives:

    Prune Shrubs – To control pests inside the house, a lot of work needs to be done outside the house. Insects often find their way into the house by climbing on shrubs and trees that are touching the outside walls of your house. Trim everything back so there is a foot clearance between plants and exterior walls.

    Rake – Likewise, many insects that live in leaf and lawn debris are going to find easy access indoors if they are hanging out near the foundation of your house. Rake this area well. Pull weeds and only keep plants and shrubs that are well cared for near your foundation. Anything that is dead or dying will attract insects.

    Clean the Kitchen – Ants often infest a kitchen faster than you can put the cap on the soda bottle. To prevent an all you can eat ant buffet, keep your kitchen clean. Washing dishes after each meal and putting all food away in the refrigerator will go a long way towards keeping the ant pests out of your house.

    Relax – Most insects won’t kill you, but the poison you spray on them might. So, if your insect problem is minor, then don’t worry about it too much. Take some preventative measures and let it go.
