    This picture is OK but really not a good house for a blue bird. They like them better protected. http://www.joyonadime.com/2013/02/bluebird-homes.html. The above link goes to blue bird homes that have nesting birds that remain year round.

    It is really a fantastic idea that you have shared for garden pests .This way you can protect your plants from pesta and weeds.You should Catch weeds early and prevent them from going to seed. The most important step you can take to maintain pest free backyard land is to keep the yard and garden neat and clean. Thanks for nice article.

    Any thistle seed (Nyger) feeder will attract birds that you may never have seen regularly. I live in the inner city and I was stunned by the number and variety of birds that eat thistle!

    The biggest problem I have had is tomatoes "splitting". This is caused by the insides growing faster than the skin. Keep your plants evenly moist/watered. If they the soil dries out and all of a sudden they get too much water when you try to alleviate the problem the insides will grow and the skin can't "catch up"...just FYI

    Thanks for superb article on garden pests.In my opinion,you should put a garden fence around your yard that is not only increase its look value but also protect your yard from insects and unsightly view. Use a grass seed that produces a thick ground cover to crowd out weeds, which will help to reduce the weeds that appear in your lawn each year.

    Squirrels in the bird feeder? If feeder is on a pole, has a roof or shell on top, just apply Vaseline. Then you can have a bit of comedy as you watch them slide off until they just give up - which they do!

    To keep squirrels out of my plants I use plastic forks with the handles stuck in the soil surrounding the plant. This method keeps them away without harming them.

    Saturate cotton balls with Peppermint oil and place around plants - squirrels don't like the smell and will also keep mice away. Make sure you use oil and not extract.

    it always amazes me that people knowingly move into a neighborhood where there's existing wildlife and then expect the wildlife to evaporate.
