    Thanks for the info. They never told us what it was for. Never told us what Meco crop was used for. And a few things that we had to handle that were made for Monsanto. Made a lot of Phoschek. Fire retardant, For Monsanto as well. Maybe is should be dead fro breathing all those chemicals in.


    It doesn't matter whether the gun they have is illegal or not they don't care about laws in the first place. You could make every gun illegal and you would still have these guys armed to the teeth it's not laws against guns we need laws against criminals !

    10-15 minutes in the dryer can kill ticks. It’s the drying aspect, more than the heat.

    So, dump the clothes as soon as you’re in, and tell the SO that’s why you gotta drink beer nekkid!

    I had a tick on me Saturday. Thought it was a huge pimple on my thigh. Nope.. It was a dog tick. NS health says they don't carry Lyme and has to be feeding for at least 24hours to transfer. I know it wasn't there for more than 3 hours.

    Chickens, Guinea fowl or any other bird will not have a significant impact on tick populations.

    And birds. Keep bird feeders away from your deck, patio, window, etc.

    I somehow got a tick on me. Going from my house to the car, to the car to moms, and back to the car. Noticed it 10mins driving down the road.

    not sure about that I didn't have as much as a mosquito last summer ,,, I free range a couple of dozen rangers,,, a heritage breed more wild then domesticated breeds they fly like a partridge and roost up in the trees ,, they live in my shelter belt live in the trees


    and at the end of the summer we have a chicken BBQ,,,
