No-see-ums

I live in Pennsylvania but my brother recently moved to southwest Florida. We were visiting and the no-see-umes (or noseeums) were pretty bad. I have used Bifen IT for mosquito control in Central PA and it works great. I noticed that Bifen is also rated for noseeums. Anyone have any thoughts on usin...

Re: What's happening where you live?

South central PA. Maybe 1/2" so far. Very light but knocking on wood since we need to be on guard until mid-March.

So

Did Santa bring you a brewing system?
No brewing system :no: ... plenty of good beer, though. I've got the brewing system on my wish list for upcoming birthday.

Re: 2022: What Did You Do On Your Lawn Today?

Western Mass: I mowed today!! Latest I've mowed ever except for that one super warm spell we had in late Dec / early Jan a few years back where it hit 60-70 for a few days. Maybe there actually is something to all this Global warming talk? :o Full disclosure, I did the Urea lock up dump about a mon...

Re: Home Brewing

There's another system similar to Mr beer. Brewdemon.com. Actually, brewdemon was started by former mr beer employees after coopers (an Australian company) bought mr beer. So it's probably closer to the kits I started with in terms of ingredients (but different equipment). Brewdemon actually looks ...

Re: Home Brewing

Great thread! I'm just a consumer, but curious. By that, do you mean that you might like to try it yourself, or that you're curious about the process, or . . .? How much do you want to know? Sorry, I meant curious about the possible content in this thread. I haven't brewed beer myself but know frie...

Re: 2022: What Did You Do On Your Lawn Today?

I made a batch of beer and spread the spent grains on the lawn. who cares about the lawn ;) ...what kind of beer did you make and how did it turn out? It was sort of a mystery beer. I bought some grains called Wundergrains. These are mixed grains resulting from various errors. So you never know wha...

Re: 2022: What Did You Do On Your Lawn Today?

Lawn in the pause... temps in the 50s, ground up some final leaves, and dropped 2lbs/k of Urea 46-0-0 on 20k+. 1/2" of rain predicted for Sunday (and more later next week.) Good night lawn! Pretty happy with myself as I sip an adult beverage.

Re: 2022: What Did You Do On Your Lawn Today?

Was debating on putting down Urea, but I feel like I'm not quite out of the pause yet. All those days in the high-60s and low 70s over the past couple of weeks makes me think that the growing was extended since the first frost about 3 weeks ago I can wait a bit longer. Would be nice to get it down ...

Re: 2022: What Did You Do On Your Lawn Today?

I'm riding along shotgun with edslawn. With maples and oaks in my yard and both of my neighbors I spent most of the day carting their leaves into my yard for mulching tomorrow after they dry out. That's just the beginning. LOL My big hardwoods still seem to have a lot of leaves holding on and the y...
