ET Pest Control Special Buy 3 get 1 FREE! 1 in the Quantity Box = 4 ETs

The ET pest control WORKS GREAT! Hi all
I have to say thanks to D&R; Technologies LLC and their great product ET pest control. My husband and I are snow birds and we go to Yuma, AZ for the winter. We live in a 5th wheel that had been taken over by ants. The type of ants that create a trail up and down the countertops. Well, I purchased 2 of the ET pest controls from their lovely website. We absolutely have no more ants!!
Thanks so much

It works!. We have a large shed where we keep lawnmowers and a motorcycle. It was infested with squirrels that were chewing up paper and cardboard, and using it for nesting. I was worried the squirrels would start in on the seats on the motorcycle and the lawnmowers and tractors next.
I read the reviews for this product and bought one. It arrived promptly and I plugged it in and adjusted the settings as the manual described. After a day or two the squirrels left, never to return.
It’s been running 24-7-365 for about two years now, and the squirrels have never been back. A friend of mine told me he’s got some squirrels chewing their way through the eaves of his house. I am recommending that he buy one of these products and install it up in his attack.

It’s a good product. It works as advertised. Get one. You won’t be disappointed.

ET pest control. I was a little doubtful when I orginaly share the ET pest control device. I have had scorpions, roaches and other bugs I’m not sure what they really are in my home. With pets, I was always concerned about them getting hurt because of the scorpions. I have tried just about everything to get rid of these creepy crawlers, so figured why not try this too. Well it has been about three weeks now and since I have plugged in the ET pest control I haven’t seen a single scorpion or roach. I have seen a few spiders making a run for a opening to get out of the house, so I know it is working. ET pest control Special Buy 3 get 1 FREE! Total “4” High End Powerful Pest Repeller.

Growing Mustard, Chiness Cabbage, Cabbage, and Cauliflower

Growing Mustard, Chiness Cabbage, Cabbage, and Cauliflower is great info for you. As you know, I am working on the find for quality people posting on Garden pest control Products, understanding that is important for the proper information of a Garden pest control Products. Currently, I discovered a really informative article that fill with best information about Garden pest control Products from a special light. Make sure you go over this article and inform me what you think. Today’s piece of content is titled Growing Mustard, Chiness Cabbage, Cabbage, and Cauliflower and you could find the full article printed below for your reference.

Growing these particular vegetables can be profitable if you knows the proper cultural practices, and knowing the necessary requirements, you can easily produce the desirable quantity and quality of these nutritious and easy-to-grow vegetables.

Strategies Required 

  • Land Preparation. Cut all grasses in the site, including branches and twigs that may shade the plants. For backyard gardening, you should break or loosen the soil by the use of grub hoe, spading fork or shovel. Repeat this process until a good tilt is obtained.
  • Laying out of plots. After the soil have been thoroughly loosened, make plots at 1 meter wide X  5 – 20 meters length, about 6 – 8 inches high. Orient the plots in an East-West direction in such a way that the plants receives maximum sunlight. Level the plots with the use of  a rake or any leveling tools.
  • Apply basal fertilizer mixture. Mix the fertilizer; 1 sack chicken manure, bat manure, etc., 4 kg urea, and 1 kg complete.

Note: this mixture is ideal for a 1X20  linear meters plot. If your plot is not this size you   can adjust the mixture by computing the exact amount of mixture.

  • Install plastic mulch to the plots.

Steps in Plastic Mulch Installation: 

  1. Excavate both ends portion of the plot with the use of a shovel or spade.
  2. Lay the end portion of the plastic mulch and cover with the excavated soil.
  3. Compact the soil by stepping it on to hold the plastic mulch in place.
  4. Insert a straight pole inside the plastic mulch just enough that 2 person can hold at both ends.
  5. With two people holding both end of the plastic mulch gradually lay on top to cover up to the plot end.
  6. Reserve one meter allowance before reaching the plot end.
  7. Stretch the plastic mulch to reach the plot end  extending up to the excavated portion.
  8. Cover with the excavated soil similar to the other plot end.
  9. Cut the plastic mulch at the end of the covered portion.
  10. Fasten both sides of the plastic mulch with a 6 inches tie wire or bamboo slots at two feet distance between fastener.
  11. Fasten in a diagonal position covering up to the plot end.
  12. Make holes on the plastic mulch in a triangle fashion using an empty sharp-edge big sardines can or tin can with heated charcoal.  A string is also laid to make the holes straight. 

The following spacing should be applied.

Pechay/Mustard 10 – 25 cm bet. row 30 – 60 cm bet. hill
Chinese Cabbage 20 – 40 cm bet. row 40 – 65 cm bet. hill
Cauliflower 40 – 50 cm bet. row 50  – 75 cm bet. hill
Cabbage 30 – 50 cm bet. row 50 – 75 cm bet. hill

Advantages of plastic mulch. 

  1. Controls weeds growth. Weeds are properly controlled since the top portion of the plots are covered and there is no way for the weed seeds to germinate. Cost of production is reduced in weeding which eats up the over-all production cost.
  2. Retains soil moisture. You can minimize water requirements since evaporation is reduced with a mulched plots.
  3. Prevents soil erosion. During heavy rains the plots can be washed out if it has no support. With the use of a plastic mulch, since the plots are totally covered the soil are safe to be eroded.
  4. Prevents soil leaching. In uncovered soils, the tendency for leaching is apparent especially during heavy rains and summer. With the used of plastic mulch all of these are controlled.
  5. Provides soil aeration. There is a  free circulation of air within the plots since the soil is not compact.
  6. Insect repellant. Because of the characteristics of the plastic mulch to reflect light, some insect pests are ward off away from the plants. Insect pests can’t resist the reflection of light from the sun.
  7. Prevents or limit the possible virus attack or infection. Viruses are carried by some insect pests that attack the plants. When the insect pests are repelled, naturally the occurrence  of virus attack is greatly minimized.

Sowing Techniques. 

  • Prepare the soil medium.  Mix the soil medium following the ratio; 60% rice hull charcoal, 30% coco coir dust, 10% sterilized/dried chicken manure. If you don’t have these soil medium in your country, you can still use the old style which is; 1 part sand, 1 part compost, and 1 part garden soil, all sterilized.
  • Fill the germinating trays with the mixed soil medium. Fill the holes in the  trays with the mixed soil medium. After all the holes are filled, press gently to fill up to the mouth of the holes.Leave a space not to fully fill the holes to  give allowance not to over flow      water during watering.
  • Sow the seed directly to the germinating trays. Sow seeds at 1-2 seeds per hole and cover with a little soil to cover the seeds.

Transplanting Seedlings.  

  • Transplanting should be done 12 –17 days after sowing. By the use of an improvised wood digging hole ( size of the holes in the germinating tray) dig on the prepared cut of the plastic mulch.
  • If the soil is dry, irrigate them before digging to make it easy. Get seedling from the germinating tray by pressing the lower base of the tray to push the seedlings upward and out from the hole.
  • Take extra care not to damage the roots to minimize mortality. Insert the seedlings into the holes, press a little and irrigate lightly. You should transplant during cloudy and cool weather.
  • During summer months transplant seedlings late in the afternoon. 

Fertilizer Requirements 

These leafy vegetables does not need too much fertilizer, especially if your soil have been incorporated with organic manure or vermicompost before planting.

You have to apply drenching technique if you want your leafy vegetables to be of good appearance, healthy and vigorous.

You can apply drenching weekly from planting to harvesting following the recommended dosage:

In every 16 liters water, mix urea with the following dosage; 

  1. First week – 75 grams urea/16 L water
  2. Second week – 150 grams urea/16 L water
  3. Third week – 225 grams urea/16 L water
  4. Fourth week – 300 grams urea/16 L water

Drenching is done by applying the mixture directly into the base of the plant. Care must be observe not to wet the leaves to avoid leaf burning.

Apply drenching solution late in the afternoon at least 150 ml. solution per hill weekly until harvesting time.

Major Insect Pests and  their Control 

  • Diamond back mothPlutella maculipennis ( Curtis). The destructive stage for this insect pest is during its larval stage. The pale green larvae chew small cavities and holes in the leaves, feeding mainly on  the undersides. In about 2 weeks they become fully developed, spin a loose mesh cocoon  and change to pupae, the  moth emerging a week later. 

The natural enemies of this insect pest are the following:

  1. Ichneumon wasp, Horogenes insularis (Cresson). They parasites as many as 95 per cent of diamond back moth population.
  2. H. plutellae (Vierck). Also parasitic to this pest.

To control Diamond back moth,  apply Agremek, Vegetok, Selecron,and Actara. Follow the manufacturers recommendation strictly to get a positive result.

  • Cabbage worm. Pieris rapae (L.). The adult stage of the cabbage worm is the Imported cabbage butterfly. Cabbage worm attacks, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, kale, mustard, lettuce, nasturtiums ad other related plants.

Damage is caused by the larvae devouring the leaves and sometimes boring into the heads of cabbage.

The known predators of cabbage worm are the stink bug, Politest wasps, and the most common and effective parasite is the braconid.

Dusting or spraying with insecticides such as; Actara, Selecron, Malathion, cymbush controls the larvae. Start spraying when you sees some larvae attacking the plants. Repeat at 7 – 10 days intervals until the infestation is checked.

  • Cabbage looper. Trichoplusia ni (Hb.). The green caterpillar with a few white or pale yellow stripes and only 3 pairs of prolegs, is often found feeding on cabbage and other related plants.

Cabbage looper can be controlled easily because it  has so many predators that attacks the larvae and the moth freely. Sometimes mortality is high due to some virus attack  to the moth.

It can also be controlled with the use of chemicals in serious cases such as; Actara, Selecron, Malathion, and Cymbush. You should always follow the recommendation stated on the labels for accurate handling of the chemicals.

  • Army Cutworm. Chlorizagrotis auxiliaries (Grote).  The larvae of several species of cutworms tend to be similar in general appearance and habits. They mostly feed on low-growing plants, and them off at, or slightly below, the surface of the soil. 

Some species which feed above ground on any part of the plant are called climbing cutworms.

When a high population is develop and the food supply becomes exhausted, they migrate to other plants the same as the army worms, hence they are called army cutworms.

The natural control for cutworms are the application of some insect parasites such as; Ichneumon wasp, bracoid wasp,, species of Apanteles, the egg parasite of Trichogramma minutum (Riley),  chalcid wasp, and the tachina fly.

Some predators includes; ground beetles, birds, and vertebrates enemies of all types of caterpillars.

For chemical control you can use Actara, Selecro, Malathion, and cymbush. You should always follow the manufacturer’s recommendation for the safe use of these insecticides. 

  • Cabbage Maggot. Hylemya brassicae (Bouche). The most destructive early-season pest of cabbage and cauliflower. It is also a serious pest of radishes and often attacks broccoli, Brussels sprouts, turnips, celery, and beets. 

Infested lower leaves become tinged with yellow, young plants fail to grow and may even wither and die.

Injury results from the maggots feeding on the surface of the roots or tunneling through them.

Recommended control measures are surface applications of heptachlor, aldrin or dieldrin at 0.25 per acre, or chlordane at 1 pound per acre.

You can either used dusts or sprays, and two applications may be necessary, one just as the plants are coming through the ground or immediately after transplanting, and another about 10 days later. 

  • Flea beetles. Phyllotreta striolata (F.).  Feeds on the underground parts of their host plants, others feed on  foliage, stem,  and flowers. Flea beetles is very common and widely distributed and attacks cabbage, turnips, radishes, and related pants.

Flea beetles can be controlled by the following insecticides; Azodrin 168 EC, Decis, Seven, and Malathion. Always follow the recommendation set by the manufacturer.

  • Cabbage AphidsBrevicorynne brassicae (L.). Aphids are destructive to almost all plants especially at the early stage of plant growth. The nymphs and adults remove plant sap, causing distortion, stunting, curling, wilting, and eventually death of the host plants. 

Heavily infested plants appears to be whitish in appearance.

The natural enemies of aphids are, braconids, lady beetles, aphid lions and syrphid fly larvae.

For chemical control, you can used Tamaron, confidor, malathion, and parathion.

  • Serpentine Leaf miners. Liriomyza pusilla (Meigen). The serpentie leaf miner causes damages in the larval stage by mining between the upper and lower surfaces of the leaves of  vegetables and various plants.

Besides rendering edible portions of vegetable crops unsalable, the leaf miner interferes with the normal photosynthesis of the plants.

Chemical control for leaf miner are;  Trigard and Lannate. Always follow the manufacturer’s recommendation in using these insecticides for safety disposition.

Harvesting 

Depending on your mode of use either for home consumption or for market you can decide when to harvest giving consideration on your capacity to earn more if you intend to sell them.

To give you the exact time to harvest for market purposes, here is the guide to harvest them for your convenience:

  • Cabbage – 90  days after sowing or the head is compact.
  • Chinese cabbage – 60 days after sowing or the head is compact.
  • Mustard – 35 days after harvest or big enough but before flowering.
  • Cauliflower – 90 days after harvest or the curd is compact.

O. K. time is up for this topic. Have a happy day for a nice growing vegetables.

Hydroponic nutrients and plant growth factors – introduction

Hydroponic nutrients and plant growth factors- introduction is best information for blogger. You need to know that I am working on the search for great people posting on Garden pest control Products, recognizing that is very useful for the correct information of a Garden pest control Products. Today, I just found a really excellent article that give the information about Garden pest control Products from a different angle. Make sure you read this article and inform me your opinion. Today’s piece of content is titled hydroponic nutrients and plant growth factors- introduction and you can read the full article printed below for your reference.

Hydroponic Nutrients and plant growth factors – introduction

Improper use of fertilizers is the common cause of many plant problems. Inadequate amounts cause weak and under nourished plants while an amount above desired quantities may burn and even kill the plant. Good judgment and decisions are required when a plant grows. Below are guidelines for applying nutrient solutions.
Hydroponic nutrient solutions are normally sold in concentrated forms. They are then added to the water supply with a specific ratio. Ideally, 150-600 parts per million consists a normal concentration of hydroponic solution. Normally sold in two or three parts because direct combination is not possible. Remember to mix nutrients into water first before combining, never combine two nutrients together.

How Much Hydroponic Nutrient Solution?

There are specific proportions for each plant type and phase of its growth. Advances in nutrient solutions have greatly improved the precision of concentration based on a plants growth stage. Hydroponic nutrient solutions are usually sold in “grow” or “growth” formulas for the vegetative phases and “bloom” or “flower” for the flowering phase of the growth cycle. Remember to switch to the bloom formula during the bloom stager to increase yields exponentially and max out your plants capacity.
In poor growing conditions weak nutrients are recommended. Low lighting, overheated gardens, crowding and root bound plants. Weak nutrients are also ideal for newly rooted cuttings and for transporting plants or when they are in the transition of growth cycles.
Normal, healthy plants can be used with regular strength solutions in ideal growing conditions. Increasing nutrient solutions could be utilized to enhance efficiency of your gardens. An ideal system such as high quality lights, proper aeration and ventilation when present is the only instance wherein you could increase the level of nutrient solutions to improve plant growth. Gradually increasing the nutrient solution is advised as not to burn the plant roots.
Various additives are also available for optimum plant growth. Maintain good grow logs or records of types of additives used, when applied and results. This enables you to measure its effectiveness in the future. If there are any negative effects with experimentation, flush or rinse your hydroponic system immediately.

How to measure Hydroponic Nutrient Solutions

Electronic conductivity of dissolved minerals in the water is the usual basis for determining nutrient solution. Parts per million (ppm) is the unit of measure. But this is just a general way of measuring conductivity in the solution and not the actual strength of individual minerals. This is the main reason why hydroponic nutrient solutions are sold as a mix of 3 parts. Once the desired mix is achieved it is very convenient to change the concentration to achieve proper conductivity.
Overuse of Hydroponic Fertilizers
Flushing out your growing medium is the first intervention once any signs of over fertilization are observed this is to prevent further damage to the plant. Clean water is used for flushing until signs of nutrient deficiency are observed in the plant. Normal feeding and schedule is then resumed. Some hydroponic systems require a top down flushing to completely clean out the plant.
pH Testing
Often referred to as the power of Hydrogen. It is the measure of Alkalinity or acidity of solutions based on hydrogen ion content. pH is measured from a scale of 0-14, acids are in the 0-7 bracket (0 the most acidic), and bases at the 7-14 range (14 the strongest). Introduction of nutrients affect the pH of the solution as they activate the hydrogen and hydroxide ions. Constant monitoring is required to ensure proper pH levels are maintained.
Ideal pH for Plant Growth
Different pH levels are recommended for each and every plant. Attention to research should be done to ascertain the proper pH level for your plant. Findings however have found out that a pH level of 5-7 is safe for most plants, 6-6.5 being the most ideal.
Be Careful When Handling Chemicals
Solutions having a pH of between 3 and 10 are usually safe for handling. Caution is advised for solutions outside this range as they would likely be strong acids or bases. Gloves and goggles are advised as a precautionary measure every time you work with any type of chemical.
Controlling pH Level
Checking pH levels should be second nature when nutrients are introduced to your solution. When solutions acid levels are observe to be always high, solutions should be changed more frequently. When nutrients are absorbed by the plant, this action makes the solution acidic and leads to nutrient “lock up.”  pH level are signs of nutrient deficiency, be sure to constantly check them. Check your water this may be the cause and not the nutrient solutions.
Various types of pH test kits are available in the market today. Some are fairly accurate with the more expensive one showing an increased degree of accuracy. Litmus paper and liquid pH tests kits used in swimming pools are an inexpensive way of measuring pH. This works for most of the plants, but plants with more sensitive pH reactions require more elaborate ph test kits. pH UP and pH DOWN chemicals are used to adjust pH levels in your solution.
Plant Growth Factors
Complete freedom from environmental factors gives indoor hydroponic gardening its ultimate advantage. All the elements needed for optimum plant growth are provided by the indoor hydroponic gardening system. Light, temperature, pH, CO2 and Oxygen are important factors that should be considered in planning your indoor hydroponic garden system.
Light and Photosynthesis
Essential sugars are created by plants through photosynthesis which is the process of converting carbon dioxide, water and nutrients into energy. Light is considered the most important factor because it provides energy for this chemical reaction. Studies show that an increase in light intensity directly increases the amount of sugar produced. This steadily goes up till the saturation point for light is reached by the plant. Increasing the level of light received by the plant should also be considered. Normally, a plant receives around 8-12 hours of sunlight in a day depending on the season. Plant exposure to this amount of light received in a day should be maintained in an indoor hydroponic garden system. Spacing is also important, be sure that they don’t block the light and ensure all plants received equal amount of light.
Plants not receiving enough light will have lasting negative effects on its growth even when corrected. Some characteristics are stems which are spindly and elongated leaving them ineffective in supporting plant growth. A decrease in the amount and size of the leaves is also one problem. More damaging effects of improper lighting are a decrease or absence of fruits, decreased overall quality and a change into a yellowish pigmentation for the plant.
Carbon Dioxide also plays a major role in Photosynthesis. Plants utilize the CO2 present in the atmosphere than anything else. CO2 systems are available which increase the levels of CO2 in your indoor hydroponic garden system
Good ventilation should also be considered as they maintain temperature and a steady fresh supply of CO2 and oxygen at all times. Complex setups require more complicated ventilation systems but an oscillating fan set on the same timer as the lights would ensure airflow.
Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Systems
Carbon Dioxide (CO2) as described in the previous paragraphs is one of the most important elements needed for plant growth. CO2 is combined with nutrients, water and energy from light (grow lights/ sunlight) is utilized during photosynthesis producing essential sugars that provide energy for the plant. Any factor missing needed for photosynthesis will limit the plants growth potential. In order for a plant to grow to its utmost potential and for it to yield the best results all of the elements must be present.
Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Injectors
One of the most cost effective way of adding CO2 to an indoor hydroponic garden system is with the use of CO2 injectors. A valve, regulator and gauge are used to measure CO2 levels injected to the air. Sophisticated CO2 injectors are also used to control CO2 release. CO2 tanks are readily available from medical supply outlets and restaurant supply stores.
Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Generators
Investing in CO2 generators would also be wise for long time use in your indoor hydroponic garden systems for several crops. CO2 generators burn propane, natural gas or other carbon based fuels to produce carbon dioxide. More expensive than CO2 tanks, they provide a more convenient way of producing CO2. Long period and continuous use of CO2 generators has proven to be more efficient and economical than purchasing injectors and many tanks.
Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Monitors and Controllers
CO2 monitors with controllers automatically maintain indoor hydroponic garden systems CO2 levels. It is advised for large-scale gardeners or hobbyists and enthusiasts with that extra cash to invest. Often in the hundreds of dollars, they are quite expensive but are really effective if you can afford it. An electronic CO2 monitor together with a CO2 controller are used to maintain CO2 levels. Monitors could be sold separately and can be used with various types of controllers giving room for flexible indoor hydroponic garden designs.
Water
Water quantity requirements vary according to the type of indoor hydroponic garden system. Adequate levels of water should be maintained whatever type of indoor hydroponic garden system used. Water deficiency even if reversed and corrected cause permanent loss in production.
Not only the amount of water but also quality of water is important. Poor quality also causes serious problems for any indoor hydroponic garden system. The use of tap water can affect the nutrient balance in hydroponic solutions. Tap water naturally contains mineral and salts. Often referred to as “hard water,” tap water is offset by constant monitoring and adjusting nutrient solution. Salt content should always be kept below 325 ppm (parts per million) whenever possible.
Temperature
Temperature is a gauge for optimum production for every plant. When plants are exposed to extreme ranges of temperature, stunted growth and poor fruit yields are the result. Plants have specific temperature ranges for their ideal growth. Warm-season vegetables and most types of flowers have 18o C and 260 C as an ideal temperature range. Cooler season vegetables like lettuces have a 10o C to 18o C range.

Primary Hydroponic Nutrients

Nitrogen (N)
The most essential of all nutrients for leaf and stem development. Nitrogen consumption depends on a plants growth cycle and in a vegetative growth phase of plant nitrogen consumption is greatest. Hydroponic nutrient solutions labeled as “grow” or “flower” contains more concentrations of nitrogen. Nitrogen deficiency is the leading cause of plant growth in indoor hydroponic garden systems. Yellowish, soft and weak plants and leaves are tell-tale signs of nitrogen deficiency.
Half-strength nitrogen solutions are ideal for plants between growing phases. This will prevent plant stretch while it’s switching its energy over to flower development. Normal feeding is resumed once the plant reaches the flowering stage.
Phosphorous (P)
Phosphorous plays a major part in root and flower development. Phosphorous deficiency signs are slow and stunted plant growth. Phosphorous is crucial to a plants flowering stage. “Bloom” type formulas contain a 0-50-30 concentration, containing no nitrogen and high levels of phosphorous and potassium.
Potassium (K)
Different in action from the previous two nutrients, it doesn’t feed the plant directly in any specific stage of growth. It merely facilitates plant intake of other primary and secondary nutrients. Potassium deficiency cause irregular plant growth and susceptibility to pests and disease. Potassium inhibits fruit production and should be lessened during this stage.

Secondary Hydroponic Nutrients

Calcium (Ca)
Facilitating and filtering the absorption of other nutrients Calcium is one essential nutrient. It is also a natural base that increases the pH level is needed. Commonly used in the vegetative phase of plant growth, calcium consumption is decreased during the flowering stage.
Magnesium (Mg)
Mainly for chlorophyll production in photosynthesis, deficiency causes yellow leaves.
Sulfur (S)
Yellow leaves are a sign of sulfur deficiency and are only used in small amounts.
Iron (Fe)
Used in small amounts, iron deficiency is similar to sulfur deficiency. Yellow leaves are the general signs of deficiency. High pH causes iron absorption problems so constant monitoring is advised.
Molybdenum (Mb)
Mainly for nitrogen absorption and converts nitrates to ammonium
Boron (B)
Facilitates carbohydrate transport in the phloem, it is not essential and maybe disregarded. Boron overdose causes plant kill, it is not found in regular soils and only supplemented.

Organic Plant Nutrients Offer a Green Solution

Organic Plant Nutrients Offer a Green Solution is great review for reader. Better to know if I am always on the lookout for quality content on Garden pest control Products, knowing that is necessary for the proper information of a Garden pest control Products. Now, I ran into a really good information that talks about Garden pest control Products from a different perspective. Make sure you read this article and let me know your suggestion. Today’s information is titled Organic Plant Nutrients Offer a Green Solution and you can find the full article written below for your reference.

Hydroponics gardening is a popular method of growing indoors that uses no soil, but instead the plant’s roots are immersed in a liquid solution of plant nutrients. Depending on the types of plants you wish to grow, you might want to select hydroponic gardening supplies that would include organic plant nutrients.

Why is is important to grow plants organically?

Plants absorb nutrients up through their roots. This is good when the nutrients include the minerals they need to grow and thrive. It becomes less attractive when you stop to consider that plant roots can also take up toxins. These toxins can be found in the soil, in the water used for adding moisture to the plant roots, and in fertilizers and pesticides used to promote plant growth and production.

If the plants you want to grow are vegetables and fruits, then you obviously do not wish to eat plants that contain toxins, because those toxins will then end up in your body and have the potential to cause health damage over time and repeated exposure. It is a safer choice, in terms of healthy options, for food crops to be grown organically. This means that no toxic chemicals will come into contact with the plants. Hydroponics offers one method of growing crops organically.

This can be a problem if you want to produce organic produce on land that has been exposed to toxic chemicals. Even if you do your part to keep your property chemical free, neighboring land can be host to toxins that can be released in water runoff that can end up on your land, contaminating it.

Plants growing indoors offer an alternative in this situation. Growing indoors allows for complete control of all environmental factors that can have an effect on the plants. When you garden using hydroponics you can choose integrated pest management techniques and use no chemical pesticides at all, yet still maintain a pest-free environment. Because the plants are grown without soil contact, you avoid all the soil-borne toxins as a matter of course.

So, too, you can use organic hydroponic nutrient solution to feed your plants, knowing that the all natural ingredients will not add toxins to the plants, and neither will there be harmful chemical residue running out of your storm water drains.

Although each different type of plant, be it a tree, flower, vegetable or shrub, will require a special hydroponics nutrient solution based on their specific needs, nevertheless all plants, regardless of where or how they are grown, require a few minimum nutrients for survival. The three major nutrients are nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium, followed by macronutrients and micronutrients in lesser amounts. Hydroponics allows you the greatest control over every aspect of plant growth, from chemical-free plant nutrients and pesticide-free pest prevention, so that the end result will be the freshest, healthiest vegetable and fruit crops for you to enjoy.

Want to Make Birds Go Away? There Are Many Ways To Go

Want to Make Birds Go Away? There Are Many Ways To Go is good read to visitor. You may know that I am constantly on the search for quality content on Garden pest control Products, understanding that is required for the proper information of a Garden pest control Products. Now, I come across a really good information that discusses Garden pest control Products from a different angle. Make sure you read this piece of content and let me know your opinion. Today’s article is titled Want to Make Birds Go Away? There Are Many Ways To Go and you could find the entire article written below for your reference.
Homeowners and commercial enterprises spend millions of dollars every year trying to play catch up with the damage and nuisance inflicted by pest birds. If only there was a way to make birds go away. No one really wants to harm our fine feathered friends, we just want them to find a nice tree in the park to call home.

Perhaps no one wants to make birds go away more than commercial  building owners. For pest birds can lead to a myriad of costly problems. Their droppings not only seriously detract from a building’s appearance, but the acidic secretions produced by the fungi that live in these droppings can mar paint and other surfaces. Bird nests and droppings can clog gutters and down pipes, causing rooftops to leak; this debris can be sucked into ducts, grilles and vents, jamming air conditioning and heating units. It can get into rooftop turbine ventilators and ceiling windows, causing them to seize up. Cleanup and repair costs can go through the roof. Of course, there are many other reasons why commercial building owners want to make birds go away.

When bird droppings gather at building entrances they create a slippery surface resulting in huge slip and fall liability to commercial property owners. Bird droppings around loading bays and storage areas can mar the appearance of costly finished goods, as well as the cardboard packaging of these products.

Restaurant owners know fair well the problems pest birds can create. The offensive odors and noise can discourage customers. And bird droppings accumulated on signage  can ruin the image of even the most popular eatery. Pest birds can also be a health hazard, carrying and transmitting any of 60 known diseases. The mantra, just make birds go away is oft repeated in the commercial industry.

Today’s cash strapped homeowners are no less anxious about ridding their domiciles of pest birds. They don’t need to replace window awnings, air conditioning units, spa covers, solar panels and satellite dish antennas annually, thanks to bird droppings. Nor do they want their children exposed to the diseases carried by bird droppings left on patio tables and chairs.

Fortunately, for both homeowner and commercial building owner, there are a number of ways to make birds go away. And stay away.

Among the most popular is the bird spike. Ideal for pigeons and other large birds, these are available with rigid unbreakable polycarbonate spikes or stainless steel spikes. A cousin to the bird spike is the bird spider. These have proven effective for awnings and patio covers, since the spider arms flagellate  with the breeze, preventing pest birds from landing. The spiders also come in a number of diameters. Spikes and spiders are easy to install and while they appear menacing, they won’t harm birds.

A surprisingly simple and effective way to make birds go away, the bird slope is widely used by both homeowners and commercial applications. The angled, slippery PVC panels cause pest birds to simply slide off when they try to land. Bird slopes are ideal for eaves, ledges, beams and other 90-degree areas where pest birds tend to nest and roost. Another favorite bird deterrent is bird gel. It’s easy to apply with a standard caulking gun and leaves a sticky surface that pest birds hate to land on, yet it’s safe for birds (except swallows) and people. Gels are ideal for ledges, I-beams, parapet walls, conduit, pipes, and flat or curved surfaces.

To make birds go away from large commercial garages, airline hangars, courtyards, and other expansive areas, there’s bird netting. Netting can control all species of birds and is even prescribed by architects. Netting comes in U.V. stabilized, flame resistant and rot and waterproof varieties, as well as a number of mesh sizes to deter starlings, sparrow, pigeons, seagulls and larger birds.

Another family of products that will make birds go away from large areas are bird misting systems. Humane and effective, these bird-hazing systems release an ultra fine mist that really annoys pest birds. The mist typically contains methyl anthranilate, a grape extract that naturally occurs in concord grapes. Safe for people, pets, plants and birds, this chemical has been widely used for decades to deter a wide variety of pest birds including, sparrows, pigeons, starlings, crows, blackbirds and geese.

Making pest birds go away in a hurry are the electric-track bird repellers. Ideal for deterring pigeons, seagulls and larger birds in mostly commercial applications, repellers deliver a mild electric shock that’s harmless to birds. Easily mounted on ledges, signs, rooftops, and flat or curved surfaces, some repellers are low profile and virtually invisible. When choosing electric repellers, you should select models with a flow-through design to keep water from damming up on rooftops and other surfaces. Opt for corrosion-resistant tracks that resist alkali and acidic environments.

If you believe there’s nothing like movement to make birds go away, you can try motorized bird repellers. They’re ideal for keeping birds off AC units, rooftops, awnings and that covered boat you have sitting in front of the garage. Some newer models even run on energy efficient solar cells.

Those who prefer high-tech deterrents have a whole family of bird scare products to choose from. These include supersonic sound systems, which play distress and predator calls for up to 22 types of birds. The calls can be heard for up to one acre and will keep birds from invading  backyards, garden areas, pools, patios, gazebos, rooftops and other open spaces.

Finally, there are a number of “bird scare” deterrents for those on a budget. These have been proven effective in keeping birds from landing on trees, overhangs, gazebos, patios, eaves, near pools, and other areas. There’s iridescent reflective foil or flash tape, which creates an “Optical Distraction Zone” birds don’t like. There’s also the inflatable balloon imprinted with lifelike reflective predator eyes and markings. The best thing about these bird deterrents is how easy they are to set up in virtually any problem area. Some bird repellers even have iridescent foil eyes to scare away birds by day, and glow-in-the-dark graphics to keep pest birds away at night.

So, as you can see, if you want to make birds go away, there are many ways to go.

How to Select the Right Vegetable Variety

How to Select the Right Vegetable Variety is best review to visitor. Better to know if I am always on the find for best people posting on Garden pest control Products, better understanding that is very useful for the correct information of a Garden pest control Products. Three days ago, I found a very good article that discusses Garden pest control Products from a different perspective. Make sure you go over this article and let me know your opinion. Today’s piece of content is titled How to Select the Right Vegetable Variety and you could grab the all article reproduced below for your convenience.

The first requirement to start your vegetable project is to select the best crop to plant. Survey the market what kind of vegetables the market wants.

Be sure to discover the common problems the customers are looking in the market place.

The market might be flooded with the vegetable you’re planning to plant. This will affect your production cost such as; your capital, time, efforts and other resources incurred during your initial operation.

But if your purpose is only for home consumption, you need not have to do a survey. You can plant anything that you need for your daily needs.

Select the Right Variety

Selecting the right variety is essential when trying to go into vegetable growing.

Select the best one which will give you the highest possible returns.

Does your area fits to the crops, say; upland or lowland?

Do you want a hybrid or open pollinated variety?

The location of your land is a critical factor.

Is your land rolling or level or slightly rolling?

Some crops grow will in upland areas and some in lowland soils. Try to figure out the location of your land.

If your land is hilly or upland, there are crops that suit to the kind of land you desire. You can now decide which crop variety is suited to your area.

Most vegetables are tolerant in upland soils such as; legumes, brassicas, solanaceous, and cucurbits except water spinach (kangkong). But there is a variety of water spinach that grows in upland – the upland kangkong.

Another consideration is whether you need to plant a hybrid or open pollinated crops.

Hybrid varieties produces higher yield and matures early as compared to open varieties.

But hybrid costs high than open pollinated. Your decision again lies as to the intention or purpose you want in your garden. If your purpose is for commercial gardening, hybrid varieties will give you a better return.

But if you intend to provide only for your home daily consumption, you don’t need a hybrid variety.

Try to make all you can to maximize what is available in your locality to minimize extra expenses in your gardening project. Open pollinated varieties could be your choice just for home use purposes.

The decision is yours as to what kind of varieties you wish to consider. But the bottom line here is you aim to have a profitable business.

Some crops also grows well in cold and warm areas. These factors are also important in your vegetable ventures.

Consider the Following Factors…

  • Type of Soil. Vegetable crops  have a different soil

requirements. Some grows in sand, silt(Alluvial soils) or clay type of soils.

For best result, vegetables must be planted in sandy loam to clay loam soil.  But for shallow rooted crops, it is advisable not to plant them in sandy soil.

The reason is moisture easily percolates in this type of soil which makes the plants easily wilt due to water starvation.

Another thing you should consider is the introduction of organic matter to your garden to increase soil fertility, invites friendly micro-organisms.

Once your garden is rich with organic matter other living organisms abounds especially worms.

Did you know that worms exudes excreta which is rich in Nitrogen?

And besides, worms has twelve functions to the growth and development of plants.

Experts have proven  that a soil with plenty of worms are considered fertile that are ideal for vegetable growing.

  • Soil pH. Soil is measured by the level of its acidity and alkalinity. pH level below 7 is considered acidic and  alkaline soil is above 7 pH level .

Almost all  vegetable crops tolerates at a  pH of 5.5 – 6.8  level. To make certain that you’ll get the right pH level in your garden, have your soil tested with a pH meter instrument.

This instrument will measure the level of your soil whether it is acidic or alkaline.

Don’t ever attempt to plant your crop without having your soil tested.

Soil testing determines what kind of soil you have. This is vital if you want your gardening to succeed.

Acidic soil  can be neutralize by applying lime three weeks to one month before planting, while in alkaline soil apply basally Ammonium Sulfate ( NH4SO4).

  • Water. Water is critical for all kinds of vegetable crops.

Lacking or over supply of water to your plants would greatly affects their growth.

It is a wise decision  for you to determine the availability of water in your area before  venturing into vegetable production.

Could it be that your area is flooded during rainy days or totally dry during summer. Is the area along a river bank where the water increases into capacity when heavy rain occurs?. All of these should be taken into serious consideration when you engage in vegetable business.

  • Temperature. Vegetables are sensitive to high or low

temperature. Cucurbits grows successfully in high temperature while solanaceous, brassicas and other crops thrives best in low temperature.

  • Sunlight. Limited amount of solar radiation reduces

the production capacity of vegetables. It aids for the maximum production of photosynthesis that will supply the plant in its food manufacture process needed in their growth and development.

Consider the supply of sunlight to be available at least 6 – 7 hours a day. This is ideal for most leafy and fruit vegetable.

Biological Factors

1)  Fungus. It attack the plant by sucking plant sap from the leaves, stem and other parts.

Their mode of attack starts at the bottom going upward and from older plant parts. This could be easily controlled by applying local biological methods and in serious cases by fungicides as the last recourse.

By all means don’t use chemicals to avoid chemical hazards to the environment especially to human and animals.

2) Bacteria. This is a serious diseases that affects the

vegetable industry. In fact, there is no chemical yet invented to control this disease.

It multiplies every 10 minutes at maximum speed once inside the plant. Plant affected with the disease smells a bad odor. The only remedy to control bacteria is to uproot affected plant and burn  to kill the bacteria.

Caution please…

Don’t bury affected plants in the soil, since the disease will just be there in the soil and might transfer again to other plants.

3) Virus. Like bacteria, this is the most serious disease especially to solanaceous crops.

Plants affected by the disease becomes stunted with curly and rosetting leaves. No known chemicals have been discovered yet to control virus.

Affected plants should be uprooted and burned to avoid the spread of the disease to other plants. Planting varieties resistant to virus is also advisable to get higher returns.

Tobacco mosaic virus are most common disease to all solanaceous crops like tomato, eggplant and pepper.

4) Nematode. Microscopic worms that attack the root systems of plants, nematode is not serious as the other diseases.

While inside the roots, nematode clogged the passage of foods from the root up to the other plants parts causing the root to form swelling depriving the foods to pass through the xylem and phloem and vise versa.

But once the disease presence is visible,  proper control measure should be applied to avoid further damage to the plants.

5) Insects. There are millions of insect species that destroys all types of plants.

However, not all insect pests are destructive. Some are friendly or other terms it as beneficial insects.

You’ll be guided how to identify some friendly or an enemy insect pests as we go along in the succeeding chapter on controlling insect pests and diseases. Your knowledge in the identification of these insect pests would guide you which one is detrimental or friendly to the plants.

6) Animals. In this scenario, public relation plays a vital role with your neighbors and surrounding gardeners.

You should be a good friend with everybody in your community.

If you can make it to help them when they need your assistance or any services you can provide, in return they will pay you back in terms of respect and trust.

If they have some astray animals that may destroy your plants inform them what happen in a cordial manner. Don’t act like a commander in the military, instead act like talking to a brother or sister.

There is no other way you can win their trust by being always friendly and helpful.

7) Human. Like the previous one, humans are most destructive than animals.

A single blink of your eyes, you will lost everything if you’ll not keep in good terms with your neighbors.

Again, public relation is vital here to make your gardening a success. Failure to have a good relation with the people in your community will lead you waste your time, money and labor.

8) Rodents. This small animal is very destructive especially to fruit vegetables and cereals.

Their presence in your farm should be given your utmost attention to minimize attack to your plants. You can control them by giving some anti-rodent chemicals.

There are vast supply of chemicals to control rodents (e.g. Racumin, Ratoxin, etc.).

HOW TO GROW HYBRID GUMAMELA

HOW TO GROW HYBRID GUMAMELA is great view to reader. You need to know that I am constantly on the watch for informative articles on Garden pest control Products, knowing that is very useful for the proper information of a Garden pest control Products. Three days ago, I found a very informative piece of content that give the information about Garden pest control Products from a new point of view. Make sure you look into this information and inform me what you think. Today’s article is titled HOW TO GROW HYBRID GUMAMELA and you can read the entire article published below for your convenience.

HOW TO GROW HYBRID GUMAMELA (Hibiscus rosa-sinensis “Estrella F. Alabastro)

An addition to the Hibiscus species, a new hybrid of gumamela was bred locally by the Department of Plant Breeding at the UPLB-IPB, UP Los Banos, Laguna, Philippines.

The plant was carefully screened for beauty, hardiness, ease of propagation, and vigor which are important qualities to attract buyers and plant lovers.

The propagation is the same to the other hibiscus species except that this new hybrid needs a thorough understanding of plant propagation techniques.

To have a successful hibiscus production, the following management activities should be properly given due consideration.

Cultural Requirements

Hibiscus plant thrives best in an open field with enough supply of sunlight since they are tropical in nature that need enough light. Full sunlight is essential to make the plant develop fully and bear flowers profusely.

Those grown in shaded place are lanky and only bears few flowers. So, avoid planting them in shaded place.

Soil Requirement

Hibiscus are not choosy in their soil requirements, especially in their productive period. However, at the early stage of plant growth, hibiscus should be grown in porous, sandy soil with manures and organic compost.

The soil should be in good drainage. Hibiscus don’t thrives best in heavy soil and poor drainage because they can’t stand in waterlogged areas.

Plant Nutrition

Hibiscus planted in pots should be fertilized regularly with complete fertilizer either granular or foliar. Dilute 1 tablespoons of complete fertilizer in a gallon of water and apply every 2 weeks.

For those planted directly in the field, the following amount of fertilizer requirement should be strictly executed: 5-10 grams for small plants, 20-25 grams for medium plants, and 30-40 grams for large plants. After applying the fertilizer, water the soil to dissolve the fertilizer.

To improve the quality of flowers of your hibiscus, you should mix the complete fertilizer with a high level of Potassium and apply the mixture once a month.

Water Management

Though hibiscus doesn’t like waterlogged areas, they are water lovers but not to the extent of over-watering them.

Regular watering of hibiscus gives you a continuous supply of flowers the whole year round. On sunny days, water them every 3 days. During rainy days, you should water only when needed to avoid root rot infestation. Root rot is prevalent during this period.

To conserve water and to control pests and weeds accumulation, put mulching materials especially in the open field. The ideal mulching materials are: plastic mulch, rice hull or rice straw.

Don’t limit only the above materials as mulch, but you can use other mulching materials  available in your country as a substitute of the above materials.

Plant Maintenance

As a gardener, you should be observant to your plant needs. Though they don’t talk, their physical appearance will give you signs for your immediate attention. Hibiscus are showy plants. They response productively when they are properly taken cared and pruned at least once a year.

Pruning hibiscus encourages the development of new plant growth from the pruned area from which new flowers will bloom for the next season. The best time to prune hibiscus is from May and September (under Philippine conditions these are dry months).

In your country they may not be the same with the Philippine conditions. Just observe the dry months in your country when you apply pruning to your hibiscus.

To produce healthy growth and beautiful flowers the succeeding season,  cut the plant approximately 1/3 of its height.

You have to remove dead branches and those lying near the ground. Also thin out branches on the center of the plants to have a balance branches and flower distribution. This will add the appearance of the plants attractiveness once the flowers starts to bloom.

Pests and Diseases Control

The presence of pests and diseases in your hibiscus plants affects their growth performance and flower production. Therefore, always check your plants for possible attack of the pests and diseases.

The most common pests of hibiscus are:

  1. Flower worms. This pest usually infest the leaves, flower buds and flowers.
  2. Aphids. Aphids causes the curling of the young foliage which may be unattractive when the attack is serious.
  3. Spiraling white flies. This pest attack the leaves which causes the malformation of the entire foliage.
  4. Green hoppers. Serious attack of the pest to the leaves will results to cupping and yellowing of the leaves.
  5. Black flea beetles. Also attack the leaves and the result will lead to shot holes in  the entire leaves.

To control the damage of your entire hibiscus plants, apply the recommended insecticides specifically for the specific pests. Ask from any agriculture store in your area the specific pesticides for the insect pest.

The most common diseases of hibiscus identified are:

  1. Leaf spot. The plant affected with leaf spot causes the browning and black spots on the leaves.
  2. Root or collar rots. This disease attack the root and stem which results to the rotting of the entire stems and roots.

You can control these diseases by controlling water application and improve soil drainage. Check your pots if the water are properly draining out after watering. If planted in the open field, you have to check the drainage canal of any obstacles for the free flow of water.

To control these diseases, you can use Dithane 45 by drenching into the plant base of the plants to kill them.

Lentek Oest Control Ultrasonic 500: 3-Pack

This is must have Lentek Oest Control Ultrasonic 500: 3-Pack (by Lentek) :

Unfortunately, this product does not work. My old, very effective, totally quiet ultrasonic mouse repeller started making odd raspy sounds, and then threatened to burst into flames. So I was hoping to find a replacement. These aren’t it! The little devices make a noise that is semi-annoying to humans, but apparently not offensive in the least to mice. I saw one mouse saunter 10 feet across my kitchen counter, from one Ultrasonic 500 to the next, without any sign of being repelled, distressed, or on the verge of a confession. And no mini-mouse-earplugs I could see. Bummer! Look elsewhere for your rodent-Metallica-psy-ops strategy. One last note: the seller was extremely good about refunding my money when I sent these back. So, kudos to them.

Built new home in the country. We moved from city to the country. Had a new home built, moved in. Well, has we moved in, so did the country animals. We then sealed all openings around the house, that were not sealed.(annoying), but, anyway,found Mice and Rats on Amazon, did not have much confidence, but worth the try. Well, to my surprise, they really worked! I hear a little clicking sound, but I have had them since summer, and no country animals in my house all winter. I will not go without these. they really do work. But, I still get spiders, and some bugs, not as many.

I have recommended them to others.. I have been using electronic pest repellents for a long time. I wish more people knew how well they work! I put one in each room (I used to have a lot of roaches, now I have none!) I have recommended them to others. Try them and you’ll see what I mean.

Features: 

  • Economical single room protection offered by Ultrasonic pest control 500
  • Direct plug-in for Ultrasonic 500 pest control
  • Single speaker design used in Ultrasonic pest control 500
  • LED power indicator in Ultrasonic pest control 500

Companion Planting may help save the Earth

Companion Planting may help save the Earth is great suggestion to blogger. Better to know if I am working on the lookout for excellent content on Garden pest control Products, knowing that is necessary for the correct information of a Garden pest control Products. Now, I discovered a very good information that talks about Garden pest control Products from a different light. Make sure you go over this article and inform me your opinion. Today’s piece of content is titled Companion Planting may help save the Earth and you could read the full article printed below for your convenience.

In years gone by, before the use of toxic chemical sprays, gardeners were still able to grow wonderful plants and healthy vegetables for their families.

Although many gardeners can give anecdotal evidence of the benefits of companion planting there are still those who consider it to be a myth; scientific information is very limited with regards to enlightening us on the actual merits of companion planting, even though gardeners throughout Europe steadfastly argue that if used correctly, the method is faultless, and a true way to be organic.

Regardless of the arguments for and against companion planting, it is safe to say that some combinations do work, and its worth looking at reasons given why this alternative to toxic sprays is successful.

Companion planting is essentially a method of growing the correct combination of plants together to help them fight off pests, improve growth and enhance flavor. If this is done correctly then you can also attract beneficial insects to improve your plants, but be warned that some plants can be detrimental to others, so make sure you choose good neighbors.

Whatever the outcome of trying this type of protection for your garden plants, you can be assured of a very interesting showcase of plants that can bring balance and harmony to your garden and just maybe, healthier organic plants without having to use toxic fertilizers. With the environment in mind this would be a huge benefit.

You can refer to lots of very comprehensive lists of companion planting that justify the use of this type of protection, and who can argue the fact that generations of gardeners who have never used modern day methods of protection have always provided very healthy vegetables for their family. Still, with very little scientific facts to back any of this up, I guess the majority of gardeners will still use the quick fix of toxic sprays and fertilizers, and so long as there is no sign of pests in their garden, bugger the planet.

Anyway, let’s have a look at some of the companion planting combinations that might just work for you. If you have cabbages, and broccoli in your vegetable patch, try growing rows of onions around them, the argument here is that the onions stronger scent will confuse and deter cabbage moths, so your cabbages and broccoli would be less prone to the caterpillar and larval infestation. Tansy is also very effective for protection against many caterpillars.

Try planting a few French marigolds and nasturtiums near your tomatoes or roses to reduce aphids. Flavor and yield are increased in strawberries if you plant them with or in a combination of borage, chives, marigold, lettuce, onion, sage, and spinach.

Various herbs have very strong reputations in protecting citrus, stone fruit, roses, and lettuce. Planting garlic, cloves, basil, lavender and sage will help deter aphids and fruit fly.

Strong claims have been made that if you plant chamomile alongside culinary herbs it encourages the flavor and increases the production of essential oils.

It’s been noted that many advocates of companion planting frequently plant heavy feeders such as sweet corn and squashes alongside nitrogen fixing legumes such as beans and peas, in doing so they give protection to the soils nutrient need. The corn provides a natural support for the climbing beans while the squash vines smother the weeds and help prevent soil moisture from evaporating, this is mutually beneficial for all plants.

If companion planting is something you would like to try to combat pests and diseases in your garden and move away from using chemical pesticides and fungicides, its best to make some sort of commitment to a few rules.

Boric Acid Insecticidal Dust

This is must have Boric Acid Insecticidal Dust (by 67TON JT & CO) :

Dont know yet. i just got it today and put some in some areas in the kitchen where its not close to food.im freaking out a bit that the roaches dont spred this on the dishees or silverware so that we get inffected.im also pregnant so im more scared because of that.i hope it works and we are safe

Flea killer. this has proven to be a very good product for killing fleas on the pets and in the carpet.

Good Stuff – Really does the job on roaches. A little goes a long way. Just a little dust in the corners and along the baseboard did away with roaches and ants in my place in a few days.

It’s really very strong. much better than all other products,,,but you just have to be careful not touching it ,,,specially if you have kids

The best way to kill bugs!. The applicator is easy to use. Boric acid works and works well. Although I have used aerosols in the past I prefer this product because:

I don’t have to breathe it in (even if you hold your breath you will breathe in the aerosols).

I take off the face plates for my light switches and electric plugs to squirt it inside the wall. These are places bugs like to travel. Needless to say this keeps the poison away from my dogs and family. The pointed applicator makes putting the poison in these areas easier.

Lots of research out there showing how well boric acid works.

Seems like one treatment works forever.
