This is one heck of a pervasive
critter that stalks our neighborhoods and endangers both humans and our pets
and livestock. You can protect yourself and your property from them by using
Just Scentsational’s Wolf Urine as a deterrent. It’s the non lethal way to send
them the message…there’s someone larger than you and you’re not always the
top dog in this neighborhood.
Odor has been a great
deterrent but there are other ways to protect yourself. Consider putting up a fence around your
perimeter to deter them but keep in mind that they can easily leap a 6ft high
fence. What else can you do
proactively? Monitor your garbage and
other possible food sources for coyotes such as rodents, squirrels, rabbits and
your own pets! Keep them inside when
coyotes are present. Walking your dog
late at night? Make sure you take a
flashlight with you and some sort of noise maker just in case they get too
Is it time for you to
put up motion sensitive lighting around your houses? That’s also a great way to frighten them
off. Most of these PIR lights are
available as solar powered lights so you can even mount them anywhere without
having to hard wire them.
Regardless of whether
you decide to use one or all of these useful tips…stay safe this season as
coyotes are on the move all around us.
And you thought that only Dracula was repelled by garlic! Well, think again. Garlic is a member of the onion genus Allium. It is a close relative to the onion, shallot, leek and chive but does so much more than repel Dracula. Garlic produces a natural sulfur which repels a virtual “who’s who” of insect and animal pests. Liquid garlic is tough on ticks by suffocating them and killing their eggs. It also suffocates the mosquito larvae that develop in standing water. Likewise, aphids, beetles and a host of other creepy crawly things. Spray liquid garlic liberally over standing water, thick undergrowth, lawn areas, flower beds and directly on plants and vegetables.
It’s spring, and while baby daffodils are poking through the thawing ground, and leaves are beginning to bud, the grass and mulch are looking a little drab. This is the time of year where color starts to appear everywhere…what about our landscaping??? It’s so expensive to maintain fresh mulch…or is it?
Welcome to the second post in our “Winning in a Winter Wonderland!” blog series! Bare Ground knows its important to understand the various ways to beat ice and snow – what products to use, when to use them, how to apply them, and so on. With all this information at your fingertips on granular ice melt and liquid ice melt, winter will have nothing on you!
Winter has begun across much of the United States, and as we try to clear our driveways and walkways of the beautiful yet dangerous snow and ice, there are often questions of what product to use, when to use it, how to apply it, and so on. Wouldn’t it be nice to wave a magic wand and have it just disappear??
It’s that time of year again where ticks start to come out in full force. We’re happy that spring is FINALLY here, but the sudden onset of bites and buzzing is still a drag. We’ve been hearing for a month or so now that THIS is they year they’re going to be really, really bad.
Winter is almost over and the snow is starting to melt away and we’re all looking forward to a warm spring. Have you noticed how your driveway looks after about three months of winter? Is it time for some asphalt repair?
When cold temperatures linger and snow keeps coming, it can feel like winter is never going to end. As we trundle our way through the last chills of winter, we all look forward to warm, spring months where flowers start to bloom again and grasses become greener. We may even get a taste of spring as a tease before winter is really over. But, before we make our way to local nurseries to pick out some perennials or start planning our veggie gardens, there’s some post-winter cleaning to do.
