    Dealing with pests in the chicken yard

    First thing I want to say is no offence meant to anyone for what I'm about to say. The whole let bygone be bygone thing is a rather soft hearted way. When you release pest and predators they may work their way back to your house or someone else's. Think about it if someone released something...

    Nicotine for pesticide

    Yes tobacco does kills intestine and hook worms but if you make the mixture stronger than needed it can make your pet sick enough for a veterinary visit. I don't know if they still make stone wall tobacco tablets but one of those with a cup of water will do the trick. If not use a half a...

    Easy way to deal with field rats

    Rat poison is only safe under certain circumstances. If no pets are around then yes it is the way to go. I don't use it in a place where a pet will be because I lost a pet dog as a child because the dog got a hold of the poisoned rat. The rest speaks for itself. As far as farm equipment I'm...

    Nicotine for pesticide

    So the message is clear I am NOT saying to pick up the habit. It's not a good thing to get hooked on, trust me I have been using skoal for 17 years and I go through a can a day.
