The ultrasonic thing got rid of the following:
Misquitoes temporarily, the misquitoes came back today,
but that might be because of the rain and the standing water.
The whiteflies seemed to have almost disappeared, those
things love squash more than anything else and they end
up killing the squash. The leaves start turning white. They
are fond of cucumbers as well. They avoid basil so I'm
interspersing purple basic over a few different areas. The
purple basil adds a nice color as well.
I'm giving black pepper a try to see if that will get rid of
whatever it is that is eating the corn. :-) If someone else
has another suggestion, I'm open for other suggestions.
Whatever is eating the corn is getting the corn at night or
very early in the morning hours. I figured if it was birds, I'd
catch them at various times of the day. There used to be a
rat problem, but I don't think there are anymore rats (except
the bushy tailed rats). Are squirrels nocturnal ? I see them
running all over the place during the day, jumping between
power lines, between phone lines, cable lines and trees.
They definitely prefer climbing up trees.
One particular squirrel was sprawled out on a limb of a tree,
about 8 feet off the ground, definitely within a leaping reach.
:-) I got to about 2 feet from it before it took off. It was
sprawled out on the limb making only the squeaks that they
can make. It was behaving wierd. I was thinking it got a
hold of cayenne peppered corn.
