CoolZone Ultrasonic Dry Misting Fan by SunHeat

Thursday, June 29th, 2017

Dry Misting FanKeep cool during the hot season with The Original Sunheat’s CoolZone Ultrasonic Dry Misting Fan, now available at J&N Feed.  The CoolZone  Ultrasonic Dry Misting Fan  is designed to keep you cool and comfortable during the hot season with many beneficial features.  The misting function uses ultrasonic high frequency oscillation principles to atomize the water into 1-5 micron ultra-fine particles. The water is then diffused into the air leaving you cool and hydrated, but not feeling wet. For an even cooler breeze, simply freeze the included polar packs and add one to the water tank. Sterilize your air by using the anion function, which utilizes a pulse and a high oscillation circuit to produce corona and oxygen molecules. If using indoors, electronic thermal sensors detect the temperature and display it for easier use. When outdoors, use the mosquito repellent function to keep disease carrying pests away. Connect your device to the fan via USB port or Bluetooth Technology to enjoy music from the built-in speakers. Wheels on the unit make it simple to transport between rooms or move from outside to inside throughout the year. A remote control is included for convenience and easy use.

Fourth of July Pet Safety Tips

Thursday, June 29th, 2017

Fourth of July Pet Safety TipsDid you know, more pets go missing on the Fourth of July than any other day of the year? Follow these Fourth of July Pet Safety Tips to keep your pooch, happy and safe during the holiday.

For many people, nothing beats lounging in the backyard on the Fourth of July with good friends and family—including furry friends. While it may seem like a great idea to reward your pet with scraps from the grill and bring him along to watch fireworks, in reality, some festive foods and activities can be potentially hazardous to him. The ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center offers the following tips:

  • Never leave alcoholic drinks unattended where pets can reach them.Alcoholic beverages have the potential to poison pets. If ingested, the animal could become very intoxicated and weak, severely depressed or could go into a coma. Death from respiratory failure is also a possibility in severe cases.
  • Do not apply any sunscreen or insect repellent product to your pet that is not labeled specifically for use on animals. Ingestion of sunscreen products can result in drooling, vomiting, diarrhea, excessive thirst and lethargy. The misuse of insect repellent that contains DEET can lead to neurological problems.
  • Always keep matches and lighter fluid out of your pets’ reach. Certain types of matches contain chlorates, which could potentially damage blood cells and result in difficulty breathing—or even kidney disease in severe cases. Lighter fluid can be irritating to skin, and if ingested can produce gastrointestinal irritation and central nervous system depression. If lighter fluid is inhaled, aspiration pneumonia and breathing problems could develop.
  • Keep your pets on their normal diet. Any change, even for one meal, can give your pet severe indigestion and diarrhea. This is particularly true for older animals who have more delicate digestive systems and nutritional requirements. And keep in mind that foods such as onions, chocolate, coffee, avocado, grapes, raisins, salt and yeast dough can all be potentially toxic to companion animals.
  • Do not put glow jewelry on your pets, or allow them to play with it.While the luminescent substance contained in these products is not highly toxic, excessive drooling and gastrointestinal irritation could still result from ingestions, and intestinal blockage could occur from swallowing large pieces of the plastic containers.
  • Keep citronella candles, insect coils and tiki torch oil products out of reach. Ingestion can produce stomach irritation and possibly even central nervous system depression. If inhaled, the oils could cause aspiration pneumonia in pets.
  • Never use fireworks around pets! While exposure to lit fireworks can potentially result in severe burns and/or trauma to the face and paws of curious pets, even unused fireworks can pose a danger. Many types contain potentially toxic substances, including potassium nitrate, arsenic, and other heavy metals.
  • Loud, crowded fireworks displays are no fun for pets, who can become frightened or disoriented by the sound. Please resist the urge to take them to Independence Day festivities, and opt instead to keep them safe from the noise in a quiet, sheltered and escape-proof area at home.
  • Be prepared in the event that your pet does escape by keeping your pets’ IDs up to date! It’s a good idea for all your animal companions—even indoor-only pets—to always wear a collar with an ID tag that includes your name, current phone number, and any relevant contact information. July 1 is National ID Your Pet Day, which serves as an annual check-in to make sure your pets’ identification tags and microchip information is up to date.

June Gardening Tips

Thursday, June 15th, 2017

June Garden TipsIt’s getting hotter and summer time activities are getting into full swing. Take advantage of the longer days by doing gardening tasks in the morning or evening when it is more pleasant to be outside.

Hotter weather means grass will be growing faster. Keep up with the mowing so you don’t have to bag the clippings. That may mean mowing every 5 or 6 days instead of every 7 to 10 days. Letting the clippings fall back into the lawn recycles nutrients but does not promote thatch. Mowing frequently at the correct height will promote a healthy, thick turf that is resistant to weeds.

As spring rains slack off and give way to drier days, apply supplemental water as needed. The rule of thumb is to water enough to wet the soil 5 to 6 inches deep. Do not water too frequently. Shallow, frequent watering promotes a shallow root system that is more susceptible to the stress of summer heat and winter cold.

The best way to conserve moisture in the landscape is by mulching. A 3 to 4 inch layer over the root zone retains moisture, keeps the soil cooler and helps prevent weed seeds from germinating under your shrubs, trees and flowers.

June is a great month for colorful summer annuals. In a sunny location try marigolds, salvia, petunias, dusty miller, and lantana just to name a few. Caladiums, coleus, impatiens and bedding begonias are a good choice for shady areas.

Summer tropical plants, though they are not freeze hardy, are perfectly at home in our Texas heat and humidity. Plant them in the ground for quick growth or in pots or tubs so you can overwinter them indoors.

How is your garden doing? Tomatoes, onions, potatoes, green beans, squash and others should be ready for harvest. Your summer recipes should be full swing.
