Kittens looking for a Home 

These lovely two kittens were abandoned by the roadside at about 10 days old, but after much TLC they are now needing a new home.

They are healthy and weaned and used to other cats and dogs.

Can you give them that home? Please call us – Claire and Roland on 606459894.

We are at Caleta de Velez but can meet you elsewhere if that is easier for you.

Recommendation Needed –Swimming Pool Problem

Can anyone  out there  help me?
I sanitize  my  4×5 (by 1avg) pool using  chlorine  granules, up to now, no problems. This season  if i put 1/2 kilo in the pool it goes  from  bright  yellow  to  clear  in 2 days !
The PH has been stubbornly  on the low side, but is now  suddenly  geting into the pink,
The water is  still ok to swim  in  but something is wrong somewhere.
Any advice  would be appreciated  B&C

The company  can be big or small. Thanks.

Recommendation Ant problems. (1)
When I moved into my old house in 1999 I had a big ant problem especially in the kitchen. I believed that ants like sugar! The previous owners had a dog and cats and a lot of cat and dog food has sugar as one of its ingredients. So a massive amount of floor washing was the first task. Then I looked at any other sugar supplies. Fruit juice (fresh or bottled) jam, marmalade, honey, sugar grains, breakfast cereals etc. All were sealed and jams put into the fridge after the outsides were wiped. Cereals kept in sealed plastic boxes and the tiniest spills were cleaned and the mop and bucket employed frequently. My Spanish neighbour told me I was mopping all wrong and she showed me how to mop once with a wet mop and then squeeze the mop and pick up all the water and detergent with the dryer mop. Well it worked. Within a week the ants came no more. When I got my dogs they ate regularly and their bowls washed straight afterwards.

I’ve honestly never seen ants in the house again. No chemicals just normal floor cleaning fluid, water and a mop and bucket, –  and I got a daily work out.  Good luck with that.  Do as the Spanish do. They know a thing or two.

Oh and don’t forget to rinse out glasses and cups after use too.

Newly arrived – diatomaceous earth.

Diatomaceous Earth is a creamy-white talc-like powder, a sedimentary deposit that is the fossilised remains of marine phytoplankton, algae-like plants called diatom. Their skeletons are made of a natural substance called silica.

It works as an insecticide on any bugs with an exoskeleton – things like ants, fleas, ticks, cockroaches, bed bugs, spiders, earwigs, aphids, thrips, scale insect, beetles, scorpions, slugs and snails. It causes the insects to dry out and die by absorbing all the fats and oils from the cuticle of the exoskeleton and then they are sucked dry. It may sound rather macabre but, dehydration is quick and death is, apparently, rather rapid! It is not harmful to mammals, including humans, because we have an internal skeleton with a layer of skin to protect us.

Use it in the garden, as a dusting or in dilution, on and around plants – it gives great protection – sprinkle it in and around ants’ nests and along entry pathways into the house. It can also be used on cats, dogs, chickens to kill fleas, ticks and mites.

For more information, call and see us at the Garden Centre or check our web page over the next few days. www.viverosflorena.com

A 500g. tub costs €7

Also, back in stock: Ant traps, 2 traps in a pack for €7
