          No, I do not recommend this product.
          This Advanced Mound Eliminator Granule product is for the treatment of fire ant mounds only. It is only recommended for fire ants and no other types of pests. It is only to be used on visible fire ant mounds and not broadcast with a spreader. Gently spray water onto the area to be treated to make it wet. Apply !/2 cup of granules onto the mound and a 4 foot radius around the mound. Then apply 1 1/2 gallon of water onto the granules.
          I gave this product a poor rating and no recommendation because it is very toxic. You must wear long sleeves, long pants, shoes and long gloves along with a face mask and eye protection to apply this product. The Safety sheet states not to remove the clothing

The Safety sheet states not to remove the clothing and apparel from the workplace prior to washing everything. This product can be very harmful to fish, pets and people. I have a Koi pond and an indoor pet. We have had a lot of rain lately with run off. I felt that this product would be too much of a risk to my family, animals, fish and the environment to use. I chose not to open the product.

          My wife said that this Stone, Tile and Laminate Floor Cleaner was easy to use. It is a no mix formula and can be sprayed directly onto the floor and mopped as normal. The bottle is also designed to fit some brands of spray mops. This cleaner does not require any rinsing. She said that all of these features are a good plus that she liked.
          It cleaned nicely and did not leave any residue on the laminate floor. It dries quickly and leaves the floor feeling very clean. It does put a slight shine onto the floor, but not a glossy look. This cleaner has a nice smell. She recommends this product and will use it again.
          Pros: Easy to Use, Looks Great

          This product can have multiple uses around your home. It can be laid flat and used as a folding table and then stack the folded laundry into the middle of the carrier. Grasp together the handles of both sides of the carrier. Now you can carry the folded laundry to wherever you store it. Also, this carrier could be used to carry your dirty laundry to the laundry room. This may be handy in your home or in a college dorm. The carrier folds flat when not in use. Folded dimensions are aprox. 2" H x 7" W x 21" L.
          If you enjoy camping, this carrier could be used to gather kindling or fire wood to then carry back to the campsite.
          Pros: Durable, High Quality, Sturdy

          I use a lot of Torx style screws in my woodworking projects because they are less likely to strip out during use. While many times I use a power tool to drive or retract these screws, sometimes you need a more sensitive touch. This 10 piece Torx scrwwdriver set has the most popular sizes used. Some people call these star screwdrivers. The sizes are as follows T6,T7,T8,T9,T10,T15,T20,T25,T27 and T30.
          The handles are very comfortable to grip and operate. I recommend this product.
          Pros: Durable, Good Size & Weight, Strong, Sturdy, nice handles

          Patented, In-Tank Fuel Drying Technology B3C's FUEL LIFE is a unique technology designed to remove water from fuel. The concept is similar to desiccant packs, a time-tested standard method to remove moisture in critical items like pills and electronics. Note: standard desiccant packs will NOT The FUEL LIFE fuel drying technology removes water from ethanol blended fuel in a fuel tank. It removes entrained water eliminating corrosion and phase separation. It is the ONLY scientific process that removes water bound to ethanol (all ethanol has water bound to it). The FUEL LIFE fuel preservation technology is a proprietary molecular sieve that removes (neutralizes) the compounds in fuel that cause fuel decay. Once removed, fuel's ability to decay is drastically diminished, even when exposed to heat and sunlight. Modern gasoline is constantly changing, but not in a positive way as it relates to small engines. Ethanol content is rising. Fuel has inherent contamination, including water bonded to ethanol. The water problem becomes worse over time with condensation and water encroachment. WATER is the greatest enemy to your fuel system and engine. Ethanol attracts water and at some point this corrosive mixture phase separates to the bottom of your tank.

          I have had some difficulty getting my push lawnmower started this Spring, even after changing the spark plug. After receiving the Fuel Life Fuel Stabilizer, I inserted it into my lawnmower gas tank. The stabilizer is contained in a cylindrical shaped sealed pouch. The kit comes with a string and a tag to attach to a hole in one end of the pouch. After tying the string, I inserted the pouch into the gas tank, leaving the string hang out for removal at a later date.
          This product is supposed to remove the water from the gas. So far, the lawnmower seems to be running smoother than it had prior to adding the stabilizer.
          This product can be inserted into the lawnmower gas tank or your gas can.

          Answer: 
          First, I do not have a lawnmower to test my answer. In theory, all 18+ batteries are suppose to fit any 18+ tool that Ryobi makes. The width of the 9.0ah battery is the same as the 4.0ah. The height of the 9.0ah is taller. With this said, if the lawnmower has any kind of a cover over the batteries, it may not close with the taller battery. If so, you may be able to leave the cover open or remove it. Read More
