If you tuned into my previous blog, you know about the potentially deadly consequences that can result from not washing your produce. If you missed it, I’d be slightly offended, but I’ll forgive you if you stop right now and read it! Click here
If you’re still slightly stressed about the idea of having parasites in your produce and are an avid gardener, we have something here at The Environmental Factor that might help ease your mind.
The slug zaper fence is a perfect solution to prevent any slugs or snails from entering into your garden and potentially spreading rat lungworm larvae onto your produce! Simply wrap the fence around the base of the garden or water basin (if you use one to collect water for garden applications). This low voltage shock will not harm the mollusks. It merely deters them from the area and gives you the peace of mind you need when you harvest your crop later.
If you’re sick of chasing those pesky (but loveable) rabbits out of your garden or fighting the raccoons that won’t leave your garbage alone, the JetEye animal repellent will always be there to provide you with some much-needed backup. This solar-powered, motion-activated water jet will scare off a wide variety of animals who don’t value your personal space and save you the hassle of trying to scare them away yourself. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can also use it as a sprinkler to run through on a hot day!
