Nice neighbor. You should get a 1\2 dozen pigs out there and show him what's up. Can't help you on the DE situationWell, it could be FR as fighting Box Elder Bugs has been cutting into my play time. I applied some food grade DE along the fence line between my bastard, lazy neighbor's yard/weed farm/Box Elder Bug preserve & my back yard using a squeeze bottle, which slowed-down the migration. The damn bugs have a fondness for doing the nasty in the gravel of my RV parking space & on my pram cover, so I want to dust the entire gravel area. I have sprayed the critters down en masse using a hose-end sprayer & Dawn which kills them until it dries but I'm looking for a control that is passive yet benign to pets, birds, & the environment & food grade DE appears to be a sound option. Has anybody applied this stuff over a larger area? I'm thinking of perforating the lid of a coffee can & using using it like a big salt shaker. Any better ideas out there?
Thanks in advance!
