  • How to Do: Bird Taxidermy (WARNING:CONTAINS GRAPHIC CONTENT.)

    A flock of crows has moved in to the woods around my orchard. They are all over the orchard and the fruit is not even ripe yet. Is there any ways to get rid of them besides shooting them? I would hate to have to net all my trees, normally the birds only go after the really tasty ones, ut crows will eat everything.Find only repellers here https://stoppestinfo.com/402-how-to-get-rid-of-crows.html

Even though I treat the cats w/ Atvantage Multi they are stil here. Any ideas. I want to get rid of the rabbits withut killing them. Thanks,John!

    I had the white powder mold on a plant that I had treated with an organic fungicide. That plant was harvested 2 weeks ago. Now I have another plant (Crystal) that is showing the same symptoms. So, it is in my greenhouse? I sprayed all my plants with the fungicide weeks ago. My main question: is there a strain that is powder mold resistant? I live in Oregon.I found some ways here https://stoppestinfo.com/160-the-best-fungicides-f...Can i use it?

    I know some parents are a little leary about wipe warmers https://gadgets-reviews.com/review/201-picking-a-b...because there has been reports of them catching fire but this one ues very low voltage and I've had mine over a year now and know many parents with this same one who have had nothing of the sort happen. This was one of the best purchases I made... at the hospital my daughter would scream when I used cold wipes on her little tush. This product runs about $35 but sometimes Toys r us has a special if you spend so much money you get this item free or for $5 depending on the deal they have (this is when I got mine and it was free if you spent $75 at the time I spent $150 on a carseat so I got 2).

You do have to buy replacement pads for the machine which are $12.99 for a package of 2 but 1 lasts about 6 months if you wet them everytime you put new wipes in. Features Will not brown or dry out wipesPatented Ever-Fresh system keeps wipes fresh and moistWorks with pop-up or standard wipesUses low voltage adapterOne con is that if you use huggies wipes you will have a hard time getting the wipes out of the opening because they are so thick. I would rate this item a 5/5

    Survival Blanket Shade Shelter

    Space blankets really work best when close to the skin and not very well after that.Since very little heat radiates from the outside of a thick sleeping bag, there's not much to reflect back, and most of that will just make it back to the outside layer of the bag.And while the sweat can be a problem if you're just using one for extra warmth, they are really meant for emergency situations where you're already too cold to sweat very much!In my case i use https://gadgets-reviews.com/review/213-how-to-choo... this blanket which called Multilayer survival blanket — Grabber All Weather Blanket

    How to Get Rid of Unwanted Animals - Updated

    we have placed the 5 gallon bucket of water w/sunflower seeds over the top of the water. We used a 1X3 which is very long and ran it across the garden area where the munks are very active and have it resting on the edge of the bucket. The squirrels and birds have eaten the seeds off the wood plank but the munks run all around it and never even go up the board. Everyone else seems to be having great luck with this approach so I was wondering what we have done wrong? And hat about this https://stoppestinfo.com/194-a-complete-guide-to-g...traps?

  • Cockroach Control System (via Psychological Manipulation)

    I've read a few pest control sites' roach pages like this onehttps://stoppestinfo.com/60-how-dangerous-are-the-cockroach-bites.html in the past, and some mentioned roaches biting people. I thought to myself "What a stupid idea. Every roach site says that that roaches do not bite". Just a minute ago, though, I think I experienced what one would call a roach "bite" from an adult male Blaberus discoidalis. When I handle them, they're usually very jittery and flutter off of my hand, which is really entertaining -the distances they can cover are sometimes beyond what I expect, and I have to go on a little roach hunt to get them back.

It scared me a lot more than I thought it would, and I almost flung him off. I think he was trying to eat me as my Pycnoscelus surinamensis often do, but when they do it, it's much more gentle, and they continue to chew for a while before giving up. This discoid, though, gave me a pretty big jump. Interesting behavior; I wonder if they ever use this for self defense?Has anyone else experienced something like this?

    It's coming that time of year where I'm located and Im torn on what I should use on Jace my Bulgarian shepherd puppy. He's 16 weeks now 41 pounds. In the past with different dogs and on my cats I've used Revolution and advantage/advantix. Im not really interested in using any kind of frontline. I've heard of to many complaints and when I was young my parents were using frontline and our house got completely infested one year. It was a nightmare but anyways I'm not sure what I should use. I'd like to avoid chemicals but I know that's just not really possible with natural options not being equally effective. I'm just wanting to know if anyone's used the Seresto collars before?

Also does everyone always use a heartworm preventive monthly? I haven't really used them in the past except for when Ive used Revolution because it's a combo. But if it's really needed I don't want to use a flea product and have to use something like heart guard on top of that. I'd rather just use the combo like Revolution. Does anyone have any feed back on Trifexis? It seems kind of expensive and I heard the pills arnt as effective for flea control? Just needing some opinions here I check few products here https://stoppestinfo.com/151-how-to-get-rid-of-ticks-and-prevent-their-bites.html and dpn't know what to take.
