Insect Killer!

Summer is just around the corner!

Are you already fighting those horrible fleas and ticks?

Here is a product that I have personally used that actually works!

Garden Tech Sevin Lawn Insect Granules 20lb


This product is sold at Rural King in stores and online.

This product is not only just for fleas and ticks, Sevin will kill over 30 insects.  I had fought fleas and ticks all year about 2 years ago.  I had used this product last year and it was amazing! I could tell a huge difference in my house as well as with my animals.

Just spread this on your yard once or twice!

Rural King sells many different spreaders that you would be able to purchase as well in order to make this an easier application.

I have provided a link for the spreaders that Rural King sells:

Start your summer off with a flea and tick yard!

Warm weather is just around the corner!

Are you looking for wedding decorations for your country wedding?


Here is a cute horseshoe aisle decoration:

You will need a full horse shoe and a half horse shoe.  You will need to weld the half horseshoe to the full horseshoe.  You will then need to weld the horse shoes to a post.  What I have used is Electric Fence Post- Steel Round 5/16″ which is sold at Rural King.  You can then paint it whatever color you would like.

You can use this for you aisle decoration.  You can put bow’s, flowers, or just run any colored material like shown below only along your horseshoes.


Just leave space in between the seating and your decoration for your guests to walk.

This decoration is also useful after the wedding.

The pictures above are along a driveway and they have placed lights on them.  You can also cut the post off of the horseshoes and use them in the house for hooks or wall decorations.

Hope you enjoy your horseshoe decorations!

Congratulations on your special day!

Mixing Gas for 2 Cycle Engines

If you are like a lot of people living in the suburbs or on a farm or lifestyle block, you probably have several 2 cycle engines such as a weed eater, chainsaw, blower, etc. Most of these engines take different mixtures 1/50, 1/32 etc. All the instructions tell how to mix one gallon, however, you usually only need a tank or two at a time, and a gallon will go bad before it is used up. Nobody needs several gallons of bad gas mixed at different ratios; the solution is to mix a tank at a time.


Always stabilize your gas before you start. It will keep the gas fresh for longer periods of time and protect your engines from gumming up. One example is STA-BIL, however, there are many others available.


Sta-Bil Concentrated Fuel Stabilizer 32 oz. 22214

SKU: 090180383


Use a measuring device for small amounts, 2oz- 1oz- 1/2 oz and 1/4 oz. There are many available.  You will also need small mixing containers, 12 gallon (1.9 L) and quart measuring cups will take care of most of your needs.

Norpro, 2 Cup Plastic Measuring Cup 3036

SKU: 006232160


If your engine calls for a 1/32 mixture that is 1 oz of oil to 32 oz of gas, or 1/2oz of oil to 16oz of gas, or 1/4 oz oil to 8 oz. gas, mix only what you need at the time.


Find a piece of cardboard or plywood and list all your equipment on it.Include the ratios that they require, and the recipe for a tank of gas. Put this on the garage wall; this will keep you from looking up the manual each time you use it.
