You have to make sure it's the one with orange oil. And yeah it does. The trick though is getting close to them to spray them. I have a couple of skylights in my family room and they all seem to like to go there first, which is kinda hard to reach without a ladder. I try and spray them really good with the orange spray though.
I use Murphy's Orange Oil Clean and Shine Spray. Orange oil contains a natural pesticide - d-limonene. Safe around kids and pets. Plus it's a great cleaner.
Carpenter bees are also very important pollinators. In fact carpenter bees are better pollinators in many instances.
Why not install some bee houses for the carpenter bees to use? We need pollinators. Carpenter bees are important pollinators.
Look into New Zealand Antler Velvet capsules to help relieve her arthritic pain. It has lots of good stuff for arthritis.
It's not industrial alcohol; its the same alcohol that is in vodka, rum, whiskey, etc.
Tincture means the iodine is dissolved in alcohol -- the kind you get in the liquor store ie: vodka, etc. Same form of alcohol that is used to make herbal tinctures and extracts. The amount of alcohol you'd get in a few drops of tincture is minuscule. And again to reiterate the alcohol in the tincture is ingestible alcohol.
Sculpey has polyvinyl chloride and you cannot replicate that at home with these ingredients.
Nice job! The only thing I would add is a bit of an overhang over the door to help keep the rain out. You can also tack on some heavy vinyl strips over the opening to keep the rain out but still allow the cat entry. I would have gone with plexiglass for the window, though.
Ok, Imma gonna say it ... Happy little disco ball planter!
Such a patient girl! Suggestions to make it more comfortable for her foot pads -- either a gel pad (cut up a gel shoe insole) or memory foam pad (again cut from a memory foam shoe insole) if the craft foam isn't cutting it.
I've not tried it, personally. But I believe Martha Stewart! lol. I think the key is keeping it moist. Covering it with a clear plastic bag would probably help.
This a job that definitely achieves better results with practice. If you're like me and only calk every few years, this is a great tip. Thank you so much!
To get moss to grow on concrete, just get some moss (not a lot) throw in some good quality buttermilk and blend. Now use a paint brush to apply the mixture to your sculpture. The probiotics in the yogurt will feed the moss and allow it to propagate. https://www.oregonlive.com/hg/2012/09/how_to_grow_mass_on_stones_scu.html
Very cool. Reminds me of the Depression Era flour sack dresses. I've got a stack of too big jeans my husband can no longer wear because of weight loss. I'm going to turn those in to shopping bags and a denim purse for my daughter.
If your grocery store has a 'Bob's Red Mill' section in the baking aisle, he sells tapioca flour which is the same thing as tapioca starch. If your grocery store has a 'health food' aisle, it might be there. Walmart carries a brand called "Namaste Foods" and they have it and call it tapioca starch, which may or may not be at your local Walmart. Tapioca pearls will work too as long as you grind them to a powder. Minute Tapioca probably won't work as it has lecithin added to it.
Yeah, just what a garage needs, mood light from 'warm' lights. I really don't need an education on watts and lumens, thanks any way, nerd
The cool lights are brighter which is what you want in a garage space. I think it looks great.
The alcohol used to make iodine tincture is ethyl alcohol, the very same alcohol that is in vodka and other alcoholic beverages. Lugols is harder to come by. Pharmacies don't keep it in stock any more.
