PESTS IN THE GARDEN AND HOME CLOVER mites can be ver troublesome when they ge into the house. They are not del rimental to the health of peo pie, but can leave a very stub born stain if a c c i d e n tally squashed. They are a nuisanci particularly during the spring and fall and arc foimd on man; plants, but. especially on lawns The mites lay eggs twice a year, in the spring and again in the faD, and at these times they migrate to buildings or trees where they lay their eggs These eggs hatch out the nexl spring or fall and it is at these times that most complaints arc received about them. They are one of the largest of the spider mites, with the eggs and young being a bright red adulls are a rusty brown. Because of this red coloring many people be- lieve they have been feeding on blood, but this is not so. What can a person do lo era dicate this pest, especially it the house? I heard of one lady who kept a damp cloth handy so that when she did wipe the clover mites off her window sills she could immediately wipe off any fresh stains be- fore they dried and became more or less They are more active in weather. When low tempera- tures return this will help to bring them under control. But, if warm weather makes an ap- pearance again, the problem could return. For indoors you could try sealing around the windows with masking tape, but these pests are so tiny Ihey could get also vacuum, which 1 think is Ans a better method of getting rid times of them inside the house. Some- times, sprinkling naptbalene flakes on the window sills will discourage the mites from en- tering. But tlu's is not recom- mended if there are children or pets around. No one wants to add unne- cessary pollution. Some times, however, it is necessary to re- sort to an insecticide. The best solution to the whole problem is to dig a border at least two feet wide all around the bouse. Do not fill lo full of plants, or you can leave, vacant, and keep a watch out for any plants that may be susceptible to the clo- Mothballs v.ill some- discourage cats. The rind of oranges is also suggest- ed lo keep them away. There are products on the market that are recommended. One is call- ver mites. Apply a two to three [oot wide band of Kclthane (mixed according to directions) on the grass and earth around :he foundation of the house. Spray also on the foundation walls, paying particular atten- .ion to all cracks and crevices. If infestation is heavy, treat- ment may have la be repeated every 10 days until controlled. An infestation of clover mites on plants will cause the leaves o turn yellow and drop off. Spray or pull up infected plants. :t is important, however, to dif- 'crentiate between mite rlam- U'e and chlorosis. In chlorosis, he veins in the leaves remain green, but the area between the 'eins turns yellow or even vhile. The edges of tile leaves legin to turn brown also. With 'lover mite damage, the whole eaf turns yellow. Jlrs. W. We are bothered y cals and dogs around our ardcn.

FIX Time is limited for exterior repairs as winter approaches. A fall task for every home- owner is a complete inspection of the outside of his house. Re- pairs not made now may to wait until spring and dam- age may be more extensive by then. Preventive maintenance is the thing to do if you wish to have a carefree winter. The roof will take a great deal of abuse during the win- ter. Look for shingles that are cracked or curling. Missing ones will have to be replaced, Examine the flashing around chimneys and dormers. A coat if roof decorating will preserve a piece of flashing that looks as 'hough it may be stalling lo wear. Gutters should be kept clean of leaves and other debris. If allowed to remain dirty and dogged when (he first snow comes they will fill up and ice will jam them, causing sagging and overflow of water down the siding and even inside the vails. While checking gutters and downspols look for sagging and usting. Do not use patches of unlike metals. Fiberglass can ie used on any gutter and ilenty of roof coating over, un- !er and around tie patch will eep it weather tight. If you have had an ice build- p problem on your roof and in our gutters, consider installing heater cable. This is an insul- ated electric wire that builds up a small amount of heat when connected enough to keep ice from forming in gut- ters. The cable can be laid along the lower edge of the roof in a pattern like an extended W or it can be laid in the gutter. Putting it on the roof requires more cable but is the preferred method. Concrete and masonry are weatherproof until cracks develop. Then moisture gets in, freezes and thaws and con- tracts and expands and before winter is over small cracks are big and the concrete is crum- bling. Clean out cracks with a sharp tool and wire brush away all fragments. Undercut the open- ing so that it is narrower at the top. This will keep the patch 'rom pulling out. W e t thoroughly and fiU with fresh material and smooth. Use a ready mix patch to which you add water, adding only what you need immediately. Take a caulking gun with you and check joints around door and window frames, inside cor- ners between two walls, siding right above the foundation. Scrape all fragments of old "-'king that is going bad he- applying new. Don't forget calk around pipes that come through the wall. Around the yard check for sagging fence posts, rolled tree limbs. Put away lawn fur- niture and put it away clean. Wrap lower trunks of young trees to keep small animals from nibbling off the bark. Sup- port young trees with and stakes passing tbe wire through a small piece of hose where it goes around the tree. Frldoy, October 1, 1971 THE LETHBRIDOI HERALD 5 UNITED MOTORS CO. LTD.
