Last year we were infested with fleas and I spent an insane amount of money trying to get rid of them. All of my animals are "house" animals, but the dog goes out to potty. I am using K9 Advantix but I need something more. Any suggestions?
Summer sure does bring plenty and every year there are more moving in on our territory. THere is nothing worse than being outside working in the yard in the heat and mosquitoes are
dropping by. A mosquito bite on a sweaty hot day just makes me want to scream. Some people dream of the summer air while they chose to be stuck indoors to avoid the mosquitoes. I want to get you outside more to enjoy your neighbors and your yards, great communities lead to long lives.
Mosquitoes stay within a one mile radius of their breeding site. If your yard has been taken over by mosquitoes and you know where there is standing water around your house and yard, you're in for a trick or treat if you don't put a stop to the development of families of mosquitoes right away. Mosquitoes lay eggs in water, so a few drops of baby oil will spread and smother the eggs and larvae, hence killing them before they spread a disease to you.
Anybody know what these little, oval, dark brown tiny bugs are I keep finding in my kitchen and bathroom? They don't fly and they are very slow. Any ideas what they are (they resemble fruit flies) and how to get rid of them???
When it's a squirrel or bird, it's okay because they do not destroy anything, but the mice like to chew on things and leave droppings everywhere. I get rid of them humanely but how can I prevent from hosting anymor critters?
