          Rabbits are sly creatures in that you don't think that there is an opening in your fence, but sure enough they'll find it. Before long their crawling under the fence and eating the lettuce.
          After receiving the product this was a perfect opportunity to test it. I followed the initial instructions and sprayed the perimeter. After a week you spray it again. Then you won't have to spray for at least a month. The results were short of magnificent. The rabbits stopped going into the garden and haven't seen any deer near the vicinity of the garden.

          At the beginning of the growing season the composted cow manure was mixed with the natural soil, which in this case is clay. Planted lettuce seeds and the plants took off beautifully, so much in fact the rabbits had made a meal of it. Used it with the zucchini and green beans with the same excellent results. Much better than dehydrated cow manure. Definitely recommend.

          Was skeptical about the fence because deer will just about do anything to get into a garden, but not with this fence. Used straight tree saplings that were about 6-7' tall, fastened them to steel posts that were in the garden with ties and because the tops of the saplings where a small diameter was able to slip the fence thru the top to add in support.
          The fence has been up for about a month and while the deer come up to the garden not one of them has has jumped the fence.

          At THD there are basically only a few brands of gloves at the store. After trying another brand and being extremely disappointed I bought the Grease Monkey gloves and have never been more delighted in work gloves.
          The fit is true to size. Been using them for cutting trees and general duties around the property for about 4-5 months and show very little wear. The Velcro fastener for the cuff is on the top of the wrist not on the bottom, for me, making them easier to put on and take off.
          When they do wear out I'll be looking for this brand again.

          Eliminate entire ant colonies from your home or yard with these Ant Stakes (8-Pack). These stakes are suitable for indoor or outdoor use, and are fast-acting with a high rate of success. Once in place, baited ants deliver poison back to the queen, neutralizing the entire colony.

          Living in the country has its positives and negatives and one of the negatives is that of ants coming into the house, mainly the kitchen where all their favorite sweets are.
          Noticed the little brown ones creeping around and before receiving the Amdro Ant Killing Bait we were killing them by hand. There is something about spraying poison in the kitchen that is a real turn off. After receiving the bait I placed it under the sink between the inlet pipes and the drain pipe, we stopped seeing them instantly, except for one following the 5 days of putting out the trap. After about a week there weren't anymore to be seen.

          What's nice about this product is that it's a solid very similar to a glue trap for a mouse, only much smaller and with only a tiny hole for the ants. It's neat, and relatively safe, sure there are precautions, it's merely better than some of the other alternatives. Read Less

          Fit plenty of food storage in a small space with this 21.9 cu. ft. Maytag EcoConserve bottom-freezer refrigerator that fits in a 33-in. opening. This refrigerator uses less energy than a 60-watt bulb running continuously for one year, and it's 30 percent more efficient than minimum federal energy standards require. Spill-Catcher glass shelves help make cleanup a breeze and a half-width deli drawer adjusts to accommodate tall items on the shelves. And when you need something frozen, just open the glide-out bottom freezer drawer with SmoothClose tracks.
           

          What is the length the freezer draw pulls out? From closed to fully extended.

          HydroPickers makes it easy for the average consumer to get started with hydroponic gardening. There are several advantages in hydroponic growing with Hydro Pickers. First, by allowing control over nutrients, Hydro Pickers can lead to higher yields due to concentrated plant nutrition. Higher yields can also be achieved because hydroponics shortens the growing cycle, essentially doubling the number of growing seasons. Hydro Pickers can be used in places where in-ground gardening isn't possible. Hydro Pickers provide the plant roots constant access to oxygen and as much water as they need - no over or under watering. Lastly, since the Hydropickers planter has built in wheel casters, it enables moving the planter to take the best advantage of the sun's solar rays on a patio, deck or any other location. Indoor growing necessitates the need for indoor lighting (not included). The resin used in this product is a food safe High Density Polyethylene. It is chemically inactive, BPA free and Phthalate free and is perfectly safe for growing edible garden vegetables. The resin also includes chemically inert UV additives to prevent long term degradation from direct sunlight.

          Put a stake in the ground as close to the tub as possible. On a hard surface use something that can support a stake maybe thick Styrofoam. I put a stake between the wood boards on my deck. Good Luck.
           
          Easily scrub and clean dirt and pollen from window screens, siding, and outdoor furniture. Use the brush side to loosen dirt on screen. The scrubber side wets and washes tough dirt and grime from the screen. For high windows, this screen cleaner attaches to a telescopic pole (not included) to reach up to 20 ft. For extra scrubbing power attach to a water flow pole (not included).

          Rat-X is a non-toxic rodent bait that kills rodents without harming any other species. Rat-X is made from 100% natural ingredients, it can even be used inside food handling facilities. The mice and rats will eat the bait like a food source and Rat-X will cause dehydration. Mice and rats have stomach sensors that tells them when they are thirsty. When they eat this bait, it turns off their stomach sensors and it can no longer tell their brain to drink water. They have no desire for drinking water. So they will just go back to their burrow, and begin the cycle - dehydration, failing kidneys, coma and then death. It is a great product to use around animals and children because it is safe and non-toxic. Rat-X can also be used as a refill for existing bait boxes.
