Southland Feed is a great place to purchase
your fish food and lawn care items and they are
dedicated to serve quality feed and supply.  They
also carry Cyber WP that kills spiders, fireants  
and other unwanted insect pest.  That product
can be used in the place of Demon insect killer.  
This product cost about $20.00 less than Demon
and is just as effective.

Protect Our Waters

Stop Aquatic Hitchhikers!
In order to manage and conserve our natural resources, Texas Parks and
Wildlife Department enforces laws to protect our state waters against the
introduction of exotic aquatic species. Fish, shellfish, and aquatic plants
that are not native to Texas may compete with native animals and plants
for food and space. Because introduced species lack natural enemies in
their new environment, they can multiply and spread at an alarming rate,
interfering with boat traffic, affecting water quality, and causing a range
of other problems. For more information, visit TexasInvasives.org

Zebra Mussels
Invasive zebra mussels have infested several Texas lakes. The Texas
Parks and Wildlife Commission has enacted new regulations to curb the
spread of this dangerous pest. Boaters and anglers in some North and
Central Texas counties are now required to drain all water from boats
and on-board receptacles before leaving or approaching a public water
body.

Clean Recreational Equipment
Exotics often travel from one water body to another by "hitching a ride"
on a watercraft. To curb the spread of these invasive species, boaters in
Texas are required by law to remove harmful plants and animals from
boats and trailers before leaving the vicinity of a lake, river, or bay.

Follow These Simple Steps

Clean
Remove all plants, animals, and mud and thoroughly wash everything,
including crevices and other hidden areas.

Drain
Eliminate all water before leaving the area, including wells, ballast, and
engine cooling water.

Dry
Allow time for your boat to completely dry before launching in other
waters.
If your boat has been in infested waters for an extended period of time, or
if you cannot perform the required steps above, you should have your boat
professionally cleaned with high-pressure scalding hot water (>140°F)
before transporting to any other body of water.

Trying to get caught up during a quite time when all my guest are swimming.  It's
been kind of hectic and will remain that way through August.  I will try to do
better!
