Nature’s Avenger organic weed killer (review & giveaway)

UPDATE: This giveaway has concluded and is closed to new entries. 

Every spring I have the best of intentions of keeping my yard and patio well-weeded. And every spring I do my best to keep up with the little suckers, but because I can’t make weeding my full-time job (after all I do have two kiddos to watch after and a little thing called a blog to tend to), the weeds eventually declare victory and I hang my head in defeat.

This spring, however, I decided to get a headstart and try my hand at creating a natural weed killer. With two little kids and two dogs, I don’t do petro chemicals in my yard, so making something as non-toxic as possible was a requirement. I played mad scientist and concocted a mixture of vinegar, hot water and dish soap, sprayed it on the little buggers and waited. While it worked to some degree (they shriveled a bit), it was not the miracle herbicide I was hoping for.

Nature’s Avenger is made with natural citrus oil which gives it a very pleasant scent, is EPA-certified, safe around children and pets, and, I’m pleased to report, it gets the job done! I tried it on a few rogue weeds in my yard and it killed them and quickly too (within a couple hours). While I wouldn’t use it all of the time (it’s still fun to get my hands dirty now and then), it is nice to have an organic weed-killing alternative for those occasions I don’t have hours to spend weeding the yard.

Find a store near you that sells Nature’s Avenger or you can buy it online.

  1. I’d love to try out Avenger! I have a lot of those little weeds growing in the cracks between the sidewalks, that I just can’t pull out, and obviously since the boys play out there, we don’t want to use any harmful chemicals.

    I posted this contest and a link back to this post, on a reminder post today on my blog to enter the Lets Go giveaway as well. :-)

  2. I would love to try this product as I too worry about using chemicals around pets and children!

  3. Wish Nature’s Avenger was offered at a store near me! We’ve been doing the vinegar thing for several weeks, and it is like the weeds are laughing at us!

  4. My husband and I would just talking about weed killers that are safe..and we were discussing methods..and weighing the pros and cons of using anything…this would be perfect for us!!

  5. I would love to win this bottle of weed killer as I have a major problem with weeds. This is something that I could really use and the fact that it is environmentally friendly is even better since I’m trying to do more to help out the environment. This is a great giveaway. Thanks.

  7. I’m 100% an ORGANIC gardener, I’ve never considered using weed killer as an alternative to hoeing and tilling until I read your blog. Now I’m very interested in finding a gallon of the Nature’s Avenger for pre-spraying my watermelon and pumpkin patches, as well as those hard to get to places along irrigation lines and corners. I tend a 1/2 acre garden
    100’X 150′ plus a Fall Ornamental gourd patch and pumpkin patch.
    Thanks for the info on this product!

  8. I have never tried the weed killer but I was amazed at how good the Natural Bed Bug Killer is. We had two different exterminators come out and couldn’t get rid of our problem. My friend recommended Natural Bed Bug Killer and it worked in hours.

  9. I am a professional gardener and would like to let people know to be cautious using horticultural vinegar. While it is organic it changes the ph of the soil where sprayed and to where it runs off. It is not inert once in the soil. And if used near a swale or on top of an incline you will probably see damage to plants not near where you sprayed.
