Mole Control

first_imgDo you have mysterious tunnels running through your lawn or flowerbeds? If so, a mole has likely invaded your yard, and you are not alone. University of Georgia Cooperative Extension agents receive several calls this time of year from home owners whose lawns have been taken over by these small, burrowing rodents. The eastern mole, with its pointed snout, small eyes and ears, short tail and rounded front paws, is the species most often found burrowing through Georgians’ grass and flowers. They live underground and rarely leave the safety of their burrows and are most active in the early morning or late evening hours. Despite their reclusive nature, you can recognize their presence by the ridges and tunnels they make in the soil. The number of tunnels in your lawn is no indication of the number of moles you have. One mole can construct many tunnels and runways. The mole builds the majority of these tunnels in search of food and only uses a few on a regular basis. Contrary to popular belief, moles do not feed on the roots of grass or flowers. They prefer to feed on insects, earthworms and grubs. However, their tunnels can cause the plant roots to dry out, which causes the plant to dry out and die. When the weather and soil are dry, tunnels created by moles can cause more damage than when water is plentiful. Generations of gardeners have invented different home remedies to control moles, but the results are inconsistent and generally ineffective. Commonly recommended mole repellants, like pickle juice, bubble gum, red pepper, bleach, mothballs, human hair, windmills, ultrasonic devices and castor oil, will do little to repel moles. There are a few strategies, however, that have been proven to control moles. First, you should get rid of their food source by treating for grubs or mole crickets. You also can try applying a poison gel-worm bait to try to kill the rodents. If that’s not successful, try trapping the moles. The key is to identify the active tunnels before you set the trap or apply the gel worms. Insecticides, poisoned gel worms and traps are available at most home and garden centers. If those tactics fail, you can always turn to your four-legged housemates. Family dogs and cats will be happy to help evict problem moles.

Kittel claims Dublin success

first_imgMarcel Kittel celebrated his 26th birthday with victory on stage three of the Giro d’Italia in Dublin. Germany’s Kittel (Giant Shimano) won in a sprint finish ahead of Briton Ben Swift (Team Sky) and Italy’s Elia Viviani (Cannondale) for a second successive stage triumph. Michael Matthews of Orica GreenEdge retained the pink jersey with an eight-second overall lead over Alessandro Petacchi (Omega Pharma-QuickStep). Whatsapp slide 1 of 1 Marcek Kittel, right, won stage three of the Giro d'Italia as Michael Matthews retained the lead (AP) Isolated from his team-mates and lead-out man Tom Veelers in a frantic finale of the 187-kilometre route from Armagh, Kittel latched on to the wheel of Swift, who was being led out by Norwegian Edvald Boasson Hagen, before powering for the line. “I came here with the goal to win the first (road) stage and after that the pressure is off slightly but today was not easy and it was really close at the finish,” Kittel said on teamgiantshimano.com. “The road got really narrow with two kilometres to go and we knew that we had to be in front here and we were but I got sandwiched and it was a choice of letting go of Tom’s wheel or probably crashing. “This put me out of position slightly and a bit far back but I was never going to give up on the chance to win a stage. “When I could see the finish line after the final corner I gave it everything and it was really close but I just concentrated on the line and managed to come past everyone. “It is extra special to win on your birthday and I must thank my team-mates for the work they did for me again today. “We can have a day of down time now before targeting the next flat stage in Italy.” There was a split behind the first 32 riders, creating an 11-second gap, with Ireland’s Nicolas Roche (Tinkoff-Saxo) finishing among the general classification contenders after working his way back to the group following a puncture with 6km to go.

Ghana journey starts against Swazis- Migne

first_img“It has been interesting for me to know the players and have some few answers about them in few days of training. But the most important bit is in competition. Sometimes the player might be ready in training but it is important to see them in competition,” the Frenchman said after his final training session at the Kenya School of Monetary Studies on Thursday evening.He says he is pleased with the quality of the players and the improvement they have marked since he first had a session with them two weeks ago, though he reiterates there is a lot to be done especially in terms of raising their fitness levels to endure a 90-minute game with unwavering tempo.Harambee Stars head coach Sebastien Migne shouts instructions to players during a training session at the Kenya School of Monetary Studies on May 24, 2018.

But we have started the journey,” the coach noted.Migne had included five foreign based players in his preliminary squad but all of them have pulled out of the tie citing various reasons and they can’t be compelled as the two games fall out of FIFA friendly dates.The tactician, though disappointed, looked at it with a positive eye, noting that it will give him an opportunity to assess the local based lads better and hand them a chance to compete for places with their foreign based counterparts.“It is a shame because I lose time to look at all of them. Ghana is just close by and we have little time between now and then to prepare well. But I must be positive because it will be a good thing to look at the local players who can compete with foreign players in future,”“It is difficult for an international game not to have some strong players but it is interesting for us looking at the future like CHAN, CECAFA and also for the Under-23 who make a good number in the team,” the coach further noted.Harambee Stars players during a training session at the Kenya School of Monetary Studies on May 24, 2018. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluHe further said; “We are trying to build something for the future and I am happy to have a start on Friday.”Migne expects a tough encounter from Swaziland who will be using the match to prepare for the upcoming COSAFA Cup and he says he knows a bit about them having watched most of their players turning out for Mbabane Swallows during his time in Congo.“I know it will not be an easy match but the most important thing for me is my team and how we play, how we improve and correct our mistakes. If you want to win, you have to try play well with good organization,” the coach added.Meanwhile, Migne says he will incorporate all junior coaches into his technical bench as he looks to imprint a similar philosophy across all national teams. He says Michael Amenga (U17), Stanley Okumbi (U20) and Francis Kimanzi (U23) will all be part of his backroom staff.During Thursday’s training sessions, Kimanzi was present alongside the other French assistant Nicolas Bouriquett. Goalkeeper coach Guilleme Coffy and Osteopath Ludovic Breul have also linked up with the team.Harambee Stars goalkeeper trainer Guilleme Coffy issues instructions to Boniface Oluoch and Timothy Odhiambo during a training session at the Kenya School of Monetary Studies on May 24, 2018.

We will watch all the leagues, even on the streets to search for the good players. You never know where you will find them,” he further stated.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Harambee Stars head coach Sebastien Migne gestures during a training session at the Kenya School of Monetary Studies on May 24, 2018.
