A little spark
From a holiday
Nearing
To its end
A bubble
To walk
On water
To pretend…

Mosquito trap (it works!)


I know…summer is nearly over but we still suffer from mosquito. This takes 2 mn to do and from last night’s experience, it really works! (The idea came from a video I saw on a blogger’s post…http://huffygirl.wordpress.com/.)
The next video is heavy duty and expensive but it’s only for those who suffer from huge quantities of mosquito as Florida (which I was unaware of) I posted it just in case someone is in that position.
Let me know if you got as good results as I had with the first one!
Have a lovely weekend 馃檪

Precise recipe.
200 ml water
75 gr sugar
1 tablespoon dried yeast

DIY MOSQUITO TRAP pesticide FREE mosquito control Solar Powered Fan West Nile Virus

Uploaded on Apr 20, 2011
This mosquito trap can kill thousands of mosquitos over a few day period.

Using a Maxx Air Flow fan 24″, the Orange one from The Home Depot $99 (EXCELLENT FANS) You can clean an area in a few nights breaking an uncontrolled population cycle. This option requires 250 watts of electricity but does not require any pesticides. The screens serve a dual purpose, they also collect dust and fine particulates and eventually form a mat of air junk. The screen provides an easy cleaning option and prevents dire from entering the bearings of the induction motor. The solar option uses a 27 watt blower fan and works great for pigeon and chicken coops, animal kennels and outdoor porches.

Place the fans near infested or high traffic areas. KEEP FANS DRY, no rain. Always Unplug when servicing screens or moving. Place the inlet side towards people or animals so you suck the mosquitos away. This also sucks in carbon dioxide creating an attraction trail for the mosquitos to follow sticking them to the back of the fan:-)

I have a few more options in the works:

WATER COLLECTION NESTS
By placing leaves and yard debris in the bottom of a container and filling it with water, the leaves decompose and provide an attractive spot for mosquitos to place their larvae. Once visible, you MUST collect the larvae with a fine fish net and dry them in the sun. This option prevent mosquitos from nesting in ditches and other areas where you cannot stop the cycle. YOU MUST clean daily or you create a mosquito farm.

BATS:

I have a DIY VIDEO on how to build a bat house and tips on getting bats to hang out:-)

Drew Dudley: Everyday leadership


This video came from the blogger,
http://waitingforthekarmatruck.com/2013/08/28/sometimes-i-get-the-message/
it made me smile the whole way through, it’s a true inspiration, not too long (6.15 mn)
and full of humor. The message goes through beautifully & in a fun way.
If we could try to live the way Drew Dudley is talking about, the world would’ve been
& will be,a better place to live in.
Enjoy it as much if not more, than I did 馃檪

Nature’s gems

A gem found in the rain
漏copyright2013owpp

I bequeath myself to the storms,
To the rain I love, falling gently
Or brutally unto the Oceans marking
Their way, digging tears into the
Grain of shores… bringing out the
Gems of yonder, tempting them out
Of their daily modicum of privacy
And fashioning as a jest, a grand
Exit by beaming scintillae betwixt
Feral clouds thereupon supplanting
Yestereve’s majestic sunset.

A memorable day in Relaxing sea wave sounds #2


This time I managed this video on my own about 95 %! It’s the sea as it was today, windy, cloudy and sunny. I hope you like the music choice. It’s less shaky this time round but I still could use a tripod (it’s on my list).
Enjoy it and let me know if you have any suggestions for further improvement… there’s always room for that!
Thanks to all for your constant support, it’s thoroughly appreciated 馃檪

This is my second video on You tube. I’ve tried to make some improvements and hope you’ll enjoy the relaxing sounds of the waves accompanied by music. Positive feedback is always welcome!
