Pocket Gophers make their presence known by building crescent shaped mounds of dirt. They feed on plant and tree roots as they tunnel through the soil. They are active year-round and can have up to three litters a year in well-watered areas. They also gnaw on irrigation lines to divert water into their tunnels, making it difficult to properly water plants. Adults live about three years. Trap them using Macabee or box traps for the best means of control.

Most of us treat our pets like children – and that’s a GOOD thing! However, many chew toys can
become a (sometimes deadly) choking hazard!
Avoid toys with:
❌Glued-on eyes or buttons
❌ Loosely attached legs, arms or tails
❌ Product tags
❌ Openings that provide easy access to squeakers/fillings
To be safe, all toys should be twice as large as the width of your pet’s jaw.
Here’s wishing All of you a Happy & (hopefully) Healthy 2021!
Unfortunately, our household waste generally increases by 25% during the Holiday Season! We waste more food, we use more energy and we receive and buy lots of new electronic devices. To help reduce waste, recycle all your old batteries. Many local stores like Home Depot and Ace Hardware have drop off bins. For a complete list go to: https://www.call2recycle.org/locator/
As Thanksgiving is approaching, here are some useful tips for the holidays!!!

According to Use Less Stuff, if each family reduced their holiday gas consumption by just one gallon (approximately 20 miles), we would reduce greenhouse gas emissions by one million tons!
Now you can recycle your plastic Ziploc sandwich and freezer bags. Per thedailaygreen.com, you can take them to your local grocery store or supermarket and add them to their plastic shopping bag bins. Of course you can wash and reuse them a few times before you need to recycle them to be even more eco-friendly.
