Glyphosate will kill asparagus ferns (Asparagus aethiopicus, A. densiflorus, A. sprengeri).
Specifically, glyphosate is the active ingredient in Round-Up. A particularly effective treatment is 1 percent solution of glyphosate to 0.25 percent surfactant. Follow-up treatments may be needed before the asparagus fern population is removed totally from the landscape.
Generally, weed problems may be solved by an attack plan of constant cutting down to the ground, controlled burning, and glyphosate. The initial reaction to the cutting initially may be vigorous regrowth. But the constant cutting is a stress that wears away at the plant in question.
Also, specifically in terms of the asparagus fern, it helps to remove as much of the root system as possible. As is the case with herbaceous and woody plants, growth begins from the roots.
Yes, this is because the potato plant itself is poisonous. The only non-poisonous part of the potato plant is the starch inside the tuber. You are not even suppose to eat the potato peel. And under non-circumstance are you to eat of the potato fruit.
Because the potato bug can eat the potato plant it inherits its poisons.
Keep in mind though that "poisonous" does not mean "venomous". The potato bug may be poisonous to eat, but it is not venomous, meaning it cannot bite you and inject venom into your body. The only way you could ever be harmed by a potato bug is if you ate enough of them to become sick from their protective poison.

A simple insecticidal soap will get rid of the fungus gnats without harming the basil. Pour 1 1/2 tbsp. of liquid castile soap, 1 qt. of water, and 3 drops of vegetable oil in a spray bottle. The liquid castile soap will kill the fungus gnats, and is natural so it won't affect the basil when you to eat the herb. Shake the ingredients in the spray bottle each time you want to use it. Aim the homemade insecticidal soap at the gnats and begin spraying.
Spray the basil plants once you are done spraying the gnats surrounding the plants so that all future gnats stay away from the basil. Reapply once per week to keep a new infestation from forming.
You are overwatering. Once you dry it out some, they will go away.
Depends on wether small or large (housefly) Small may be fungus-type gnat. Large would be indicative of a sanitation problem nearby.

== == * I think what you are seeing is what we here call "boatmen." Once in a while, I find one or two in my pool, and I scoop them up and kill them. And they also bite and are tricky swimmers. I've noticed that if I'm low on my chlorine, they're around. In which case, I add more immediately. They actually live around ponds, etc., but I have a large body of water in the back yard. == == * These are water boatmen; they do bite, and yes, they can fly. Adding a non-foaming algaecide to your pool will get rid of them. They create an air bubble around themselves to breathe under water; the algaecide takes the oxygen out of the water (which is how it kills off algae) so that they cannot create the air bubble. If they can't breathe under water, they will leave! == == * If they bite they are most likely back swimmers, which look like boatmen but swim on their back. Bug out will kill them, unless you have a pebble-tec pool, I can't find anything that works.
Yes it does. I've tried it before.
Exterminating bed bugs without the help of a professional is highly discouraged. Self-treatment tends to make infestations worse, and eventual extermination ends up more expensive. The following are all suggestions that can help to control infestations until they can be treated by a pest control professional.
The above ideas are meant to help in both the preparation and control of bed bug infestations. None of the methods will completely eradicate an infestation. Proper extermination of bed bugs requires the assistance of a pest control professional, as bed bugs are very resilient, and are difficult to exterminate.
Speaking on behalf of my bed bug experience, I have to say it's a pain to get rid of bed bugs. I've had bed bug infestation before on my mattress. Bed bugs do bite and they will leave a flat large red mark on your skin. Bed bugs are nocturnal so they will come out at night when you are sleeping and during the day they will hide in cracks and crevices of your room or in your mattress. They can come into your home by cracks and crevices from apartments or from the outside, they can be brought in by your luggage if you went on a vacation. You will need to treat bed bugs multiple of times because they all wont be killed at once, believe me, I know.
You can look for bed bugs in the crevices of your mattress and on the lining underneath your mattress. They will also be in your sheets, pillow cases, and fabrics. Bed bugs can also be found in your box springs and on the joining parts of your bed frame and head board but they can also be in a variety of other places in or near your bedroom, such as in the walls or under the floorboards.
I treated for bed bugs 3-4 times in 2 weeks. I repeated the process again. I used this spray called Steri-Fab and sprayed it on my mattress and on box springs. I vacuumed my mattress and box spring after I allowed it to dry. I also used dust, which is a pesticide dust into the cracks and crevices of my home which will prevent them from coming into my home. Do not use dust where children play.
After I treated my mattress and box springs, I used Allerzip Protect-A-Bed mattress encasement, Protect-A-Bed box spring cover and Protect-A-Bed pillow case to prevent future bed bug infestation. These encasement, box cover, and pillow case prevents moisture from building up and traps the bed bugs causing them to die from lack of food and hiding place.
Exterminating bed bugs without the help of a professional is highly discouraged. Self-treatment tends to make infestations worse, and eventual extermination ends up more expensive. If you think you have a bed bug infestation, contact a pest control professional to set up an inspection or extermination. The following are all suggestions that can help to control infestations until they can be treated by a pest control professional.
You place the candle in a pan of water and light the wick. Remove all food and pets from the area and seal up the rooms. You should use one candle per room. The burning will create sulfur gas. When this gas comes in contact with water, it creates sulfuric acid which will kill all insects, because of the water in their bodies. After about 8 hours, you can return and open up the windows to let the rooms air out.
Citronella candles will shoo away most fliers & they are the biggest nuisance.
Yes, they are highly attracted to UV.
It is important to identify the type of flying insect we are dealing with. Most commonly these insects feed off of organic material and they prefer the moist damp areas. If you are seeing them primarily in the kitchen check your drains. Easy way is to put some clear plastic wrap over the drain before you go to bed and see if there are any insects on the bottom side when you wake up in the morning.
By violent means - which have equally "violent ends"* - the gardener or cultivator may get rid of frogs (order Anura) within the garden.
The frogs may be rendered hungry by removing their mosquito and slug food sources. Just remove as much moisture as possible. Stop supplemental watering. Break down all water features, swimming pools and natural water bodies.
Render the frogs homeless by removing their preferred habitats. Specifically, increase the amount of impervious surface, against all possibility of underground burrows. So link the indoors with such "outdoor rooms" as patios, gazebos, gardens and decks. Build such gardening structures as potting sheds and greenhouses. Add paved footpaths and enlarged driveways.
Render them helpless by resorting to chemical controls of garden problems. Frogs easily may secrete defensive toxins. They just as easily may absorb environmental toxins, such as pesticides. Specifically, they tend to be as sensitive as such other beneficials as bees.
Render them frightened by killing all their eggs or by installing whatever traps or controls are recommended against nuisance populations.
The choice of any one of the above means may be understandable within the context of having to fill up frog holes or risk ankle injury by walking through them. But the holes serve a purpose. They actually are access points for the frogs to overwinter underground or between the roots of trees. In other words, the frogs are just doing what they can to survive.
So if none of the above appeals to the gardener or cultivator bent on control, there is another more environmentally-friendly possibility. This approach is based on what those frog holes do for the soil. Specifically, compacted soils that prevent adequate movement of air and moisture are side-effects of the development that allows civilization and its contents (and discontents). Frog holes create air and moisture spaces for the soil and its soil food web of plant roots and underground critter.
So another option is respecting the good that frogs and their holes do and just patiently filling in each hole with your favorite plant.
*William Shakespeare, "Romeo and Juliet," II:6:9-11.
Kill the queen because that is the ant's main leader. You find the queen in the nest at the very bottom because she is very secretive so therefore is hidden. Another thing that you can do is poison. Then of course, you can always smush them, but that's not really a good way to kill them. If these ways don't please you, then check out this website: http://www.wikihow.com/Get-Rid-of-Ants
Its dumb! Put it like that.
Extremely dangerous, in some instances fatal. Mothballs consist of 100% Naphthalene or a form of Benzene. Inhalation of vapors causes headaches, respiratory distress, eye irritation and many other symptoms. Ingestion causes toxic poisoning leading to liver damage,respiratory failure, seizures, heart arrhythmia, and the possibility of death.
The chemical in mothballs that gives it that fruity scent is paradichlorobenzene, I'm sure "benzene" sounds familiar. If you're sniffing mothballs because it makes you dizzy, you should stop because the closest thing to a high that paradichlorobenzene can provide is a nasty headache.
Repeated inhalation of fumes or ingestion of a few mothballs can be fatal. Especially, for children, elderly people, pets and indirectly for fetuses.
As stated above the purpose of both chemicals is to kill moths and moth larvae with the fumes. Both naphthalene and paradichlorobenzene sublimate, meaning they transition from a solid state to a gas. The gas is toxic to moths. And to humans under conditions of extended exposure, especially children.
For either of these chemicals to be effective, they need to be placed with the clothing in a sealed container so the fumes can build up and kill the moths. In a sealed atmosphere like that, the fumes are not harmful to people because they are contained.
The main threat to humans occurs when opening the containers, or from wearing clothes immediately after opening (especially a problem for infants). A solution is to open the containers outside and let the clothes hang and air out for a day before wearing.
A lesser threat arises with children who think the mothballs are some kind of candy. The "strange" flavor may halt their attempted eating of them, but guardians should stay alert for the possible symptoms of poisoning. You can contact the National Poison Control Center, 1-800-222-1222.
A less toxic alternative is cedar blocks, shavings or oil. The blocks are expensive, but cedar shavings in the form of hamster bedding can be very inexpensive. Cedar-lined chests and closets do the same job. Again, the clothes container needs to be closed in order for the cedar scent to have a real effect on moths.

There are several different homeowners insurance and commercial insurance policies. They are slightly different in each state because every state has different problems. For example the Northern state have ice dams and Southeastern state have significant Hurricane threat. California has significant earthquake threat. Therefore you should read your own insurance policy to see the actual working that would be used to determine if you have coverage for a claim to remove bats.
Once you have your policy handy look for this section Section I Perils Insured Against. It is found on the policy I am looking at on Page 8 of 22. This is where the policy goes over some items they will not pay for in relation to dwelling and other structures. Now that you in the right place go to # 6 which states Any of the Following. It says this "Birds, Vermin, Rodents or insects".
What this means is that the insurance policy was written or designed so as not to pay for damaged caused by Birds, Vermin, Rodents, or Insects. This is the wording in a standard Homeowners insurance policy. Notice it does not mention Bats. So is a bird a bat? You need to look up the definition of a bird and go from there. If a bat is considered a bird then no coverage. If it is unclear if a bat is a bird then it is a questionable claim.
The insurance company may ask a coverage attorney who researches these type items everyday. They actually have a library of these research items grouped by state and policy. Why? because policies, wording, courts are different in each state. If you file a claim and are denied you really lose nothing but it does put a claim on your record. I would ask how much is it costing to remove bats? Your deductible on your home insurance should be $500 to $1000 dollars.
I would think the pesticide in human lice shampoo would be much too harsh for a dog. Dawn dishwashing liquid will kill every flea on your dog, just don't use it too often because it strips most of their skin oil too. Make sure it is Dawn because other dishwashing liquids do not work (I do not know why).
If you spray all the flooring in your home and the underside of furniture cushions with 2 cans of Bengal Flea & Tick spray, that will also help kill any fleas that jump off your dog.....and that spray works all season long.
In 2011, Florida had the most acreage, but California had the highest total production and highest per acre yield.
No, you need to get the pet to a vet to get a "flea bath" to kill the larvae and adult fleas
might be fly poop. If it's a WOOD window frame, with small holes visible in the wood surface and the "black sand shaped particles" are piled up in small areas, then you should consider checking for termites. Termite trailings are usually visible as small piles of particles resembling the size and texture of course beach sand. The color of the trailings will vary depending on the age and type of wood involved. Termites in pine wood will have lighter colored trailings due to pine's lighter shade; in contrast, the termite trailings from a darker wood like walnut or mahogany will be much darker than the pine trailings. Different User Answer As a pest control professional and a termite inspector for the last 4 years I can honestly say that I have never seen termites leave any kind of particles. Termites generally leave only damaged wood and mud behind. They use the mud to build a shelter in which they travel through that keeps them protected from outside elements and helps keep moisture in their bodies. The standard subterranean termite does not leave any black particles that look like sand. Without seeing it it would be hard to say exactly what you have
