Strathwood Chaise Lounge: All Weather Hardwood

The Strathwood Chaise Lounge is ideal for lounging around the pool, back deck or back yard. The back features a 5 position adjustment for upright seating, very relaxed seating or completely flat seating. A very handy tray slides to either side or can rest below the chaise when not in use. For more comfort add a chaise lounge cushion. This sturdy chaise lounge is easily assembled with an adjustable wrench and the supplied allen wrench. The entire chaise is made of hardwood which is an all-weather wood that is dense and durable. hardwood requires no finishing and will not rot when left outdoors where rain and sun will damage other lesser quality woods. Left untreated, hardwood will weather to a soft warm shade of gray similar to the weathering of teak. Sturdy mortise and tenon construction provides the highest quality joinery that will last for many years. Original color can be maintained by applying a seasonal coat of teak oil.

Live Ladybugs: Popular Beneficial Insects

A favorite "good bug" ladybugs have been popular beneficial insects for the past 20 years. When released at sundown (because they don’t fly at night), ladybugs eat aphids, mealy bugs, scale, leaf hoppers, and other destructive pests. And they keep on eating until the bad guys are gone, laying their own eggs in the process. When new pests arrive, fresh ladybugs will be waiting. You will love them because ladybugs really work, plus they will be doing something favorable for the environment. Live Ladybugs prefer to eat aphids and will devour up to 50 a day, but they will also attack scale, mealy bugs, boil worm, leaf hopper, and corn ear worm. They dine only on insects and do not harm vegetation in any way.

Terro Liquid Ant Bait: Proven Liquid Formulation

You need something that is slow acting and the workers take it back to the nest and share their little treasures with the queen ants. All the ant baits I put out the ants basically ignore except for this product. It must be really yummy to those sweet loving ants because they go crazy for Terro Liquid Ant Bait. And guess what, this product just uses Borax so people who are into organic gardening recommend it. If you have pets and children, you won’t have to worry with this product. So you can place this in your house where the ants are marching and within a few days, they will start thinning out. In a week, the nest is wiped out. Best bet is to place them outside your house on the house perimeter with two or three on each side of the house. That way, you eliminate the root of the problem. Terro also has another product designed for outside but it is more expensive and I find these traps work fine outside. The opening of this trap faces down so rain can’t get into it.

Perky Pet Hummingbird Feeder: Four Feeding Ports

The Perky Pet Hummingbird Feeder features 4 feeding ports, a 4-way perch and holds 8 ounces of nectar. The feeder base is bright red to attract hummingbirds.
