CONTROL THOSE If you are bothered with aphids in the greenhouse or perhaps this will help you.

But to keep it that way you have to remember two rules. One is to keep your lawn well watered during dry weather. The other is that the lawn should not be cut as short as when growth is more vigorous. Your lawn mower blades must be sharp. If the ends of your grass will have a brown cast because the blades are tearing rather than cut- ting. To keep the machine in good operating don't forget to oil it as the manufacturer recommends and to occasionally wipe the blades with a good grade of machine oil to avoid rust. The secret in mowing is to mow often but not too closely Tlie grass blades should be long enough to prevent the roots from being starved and short enough to be attractive If you do excess leaf- growth is fertilizer loss will be and problems such as insects and coarse grasses are reduced. And best of grass assumes a dwarf habit and the production of extra shoots is btimulaled So make grass cutting a and your lawn will love you for it.

The only place to have a vapor barrier in an attic floor or top-floor as some people think of it is on the bottom of the total thickness of new and old combined. In that it effectively stops vapor tran- smission and the possibility of condensation on the roof. with water and placed near infested attract the who finish up in the water.
