As an avid gardener, I'm always looking for ways to make my time outdoors more enjoyable. From insect control systems to cooling fans, I get a charge out of discovering products that really work to protect me from pests and the elements. I'm also very passionate about animals and their care. I believe that it's no longer prudent or necessary to expose pets to dangerous chemicals to control fleas and ticks. I would never recommend something I didn't believe in 100 percent. I don't dream of becoming the next Squidoo millionaire, but I do hope to educate the public about safe alternatives to traditional chemical pesticides.
