          Love these gloves! from the moment I slipped them on. I chose the XL size to be safe, and I am glad that I did. They fit "like a glove" even though my hands are a size large at best. They are super comfortable and give my arthritic hands a lot of protection and flexibility. I "play" in the dirt a lot so I am always buying packs of gloves. These are my new favorites. This six pack of gloves should last me the whole planting season and well into summer and fall. The water proof palm is well coated and extends further around the palm onto the back of the hand, unlike some gloves that may be water proof on the palm, but allow water to seep in from the back of the hand.

          I have used several different types of odor eliminators for my maintenance closet, where there is a sewage pump for my basement area. The odors there can be sometimes gross. Oil plug-ins and other odor eliminators have only lasted a few weeks at best, before there presence has disappeared. After a few weeks of placement the whiffs of smell are still being held at bay. but I wonder just how long I can expect this to last. That is the only reason I gave this product a good rating and not an excellent one. The smell is terrific. It smells clean and bright, with notes of "clean linen and dryer sheets perfume." Once it is placed, you don't really notice the smell, but I imagine that you would Read More

          Easy to install. Needed to come with some sort of gasket as there is a little space between the door and the handle which causes it to "rock" a little. It comes with three different size screws, but the smallest was too small, the middle was still a little too small and did not secure the handle, and the longest screws left a gap. But it works. The $40 price tag was a bit much, so I cannot recommend

          RatX is a non-toxic rat bait that kills rodents without harming any other species. Rat-X is made from 100% natural ingredients, it can even be used inside food handling facilities. The mice and rats will eat the bait like a food source and Rat-X will cause dehydration. Mice and rats have stomach sensors that tells them when they are thirsty. When they eat this bait, it turns off their stomach sensors and it can no longer tell their brain to drink water. They have no desire for drinking water, so they will just go back to their burrow and begin the cycle - dehydration, failing kidneys, coma and then death. This DIY pest control is great to use around animals and children because it is safe and non-toxic. Rat-X can also be used as a refill for existing bait boxes.

          I have tried various types of rodent control over the years, trying to get rid of mice, rats and chipmunks. Most traps are ineffective and most baits do not really let you know if they are effective because the animal will move to another location to die and I may, or may not, actually smell the decaying carcass, so there may be no way of knowing, but I have always had greater effect/less rodents, after using bait traps. I like that this product gives me the ability to refill existing bait traps, as well as create some of my own, from paper plates/bowls.I am also pouring some of the pellets into chipmunk holes.

          Easy to install. Took me all of five minutes to screw the two screws into the wall (screws and anchors included), plus there is even an included hew wrench to tighten and untighten the set screw which allows you to attach the actual Toilet paper holder. I love the design and the fact that it is black and goes with my other bathroom trim. The flat finish cuts down on water spots and fingerprints, too.
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Clean, Easy to Install, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, Looks Great, Nice Design, Stylish, comes with screws and wrench

          Answer: 
          Sounds like a good idea. These are rated for "damp" locations, so they might work under the eave/porch of a house, but will probably not last as long in extreme weather conditions

          Answer: 
          You will need approx. 2.25 cubic yards. Each Cubic yard is 27 cubic feet. Each bag is only .5 cu ft, so you need 54 bags to make a cubic yard. I would suggest starting with 100 bags and then see if you need more. You can check my answer by using a gravel/aggregate calculator online.
