While cleaning out a file cabinet, I was reminder why I’m a big believer in prevention and protection.
Judging from the calls on the radio (“The Garden Clinic,” Saturdays from noon to 1 p.m. on WTMA), many people are thinking about doing some pruning.
Preventing pests in and around your house is always best. You do not want roaches all over your kitchen before you decide to do anything about them. Before your dog or cat is totally infested you can apply products that prevent fleas and ticks. Flies are out this time of year, so it is a good time to get them under control.
