I brought these to colour code my stuff,
1. fertilizer
2. pest control
3. weed killer

I thought what a idea that was.

Definitely, hehe. There should be a lot more colour coding in the world I reckon - it's such a useful way of avoiding getting things mixed up.

haha A great idea. My ppoor dad accidently sprayed the roses with weed killer, mistaking it for bug spray (killed half and the rest looked sick for ages!). Really good to have a colour system

Hello twitch71,
Here you can find the way to avoid pest control:
Keep ants away from your home with a concoction of borax and sugar. Mix 1 cup sugar and 1 cup borax in a quart jar. Punch holes in the jar's lid, and sprinkle the mixture outdoors around the foundation of your home and around the baseboards inside your house. The ants are attracted by the sugar and poisoned by the borax.
If you have cockroaches, sprinkle borax powder in the kitchen and bathroom cabinets. Avoid sprinkling where children and pets could be affected.
If there's a hornet, wasp, bee or other flying insect in your house and you have no insect spray, kill it with hair spray.
If your home becomes infested with fleas, vacuum rugs thoroughly before spraying, and throw the dust bag out at once.
Change the water in a birdbath every 3 days to help reduce the mosquito population.
