Fire ant control
Fire ants can be controlled with Amdro. County Commissioner Neil Craigmile provides Amdro for the use of Garden Ridge residents at $4.30 per one-pound bag.
Warning: While directions on the package caution not to use more than 1.5 pounds per acre, they unfortunately do not recommend a time span for reapplication. Because the product is toxic to animals, birds and fish, users should avoid treating the fire ant mound before a rain. Runoff could contaminate streams. Another
precaution is to scatter grass clipping over the Amdro poison to hide the bait from birds.
It’s not only becoming fashionable to be a recycler but to recycle is a downright necessity to prevent the depletion of our world’s resources. Cities, churches, groups and individual citizens make a big push to create recycling centers and to broadcast ideas on how to go about it in a practical manner. Most of these ideas cut down on waste, but hardly infringe on people’s comfort.
The best method is to stop waste at its source. How?
1. Write to Direct Marketing Assn., Mail Preference Service, HW. 42nd St., New York, NY 10163 and ask them to take your address (and those of friends, neighbors and relatives whose consent you have) off their mailing list. It will cut down your junk mail by about 50 percent.
2. Change your buying habits and avoid buying anything pre-wrapped, like meat and cheese products, etc. Buy glass bottles rather than plastic. Use china, glass, or pottery dishes
instead of styropor and plastic.
A little common sense goes a long way.
U.S. Congress-Gundcstag exchange student Phillip Riedel from Germany has found friendly hosts for the 1991/92 school year in the Rodney L. Smith family of New Braunfels.
