Serious? My neighbor has a pond with (I'm guessing here) half dozen Goldfish...Heck yea I'll bring it to her see what the fish say about it Thanks for that idea that way EVERYBODY will be happy

Now if you also had an idea how to keep the wild rabbits from eating ALL my sunflowers & Morning Glory's (we're talking about some 3 dozen plants here) THAT would indeed be priceless suggestion then Cause I'm starting to think .22 here and let's have the local boys have some stew.....

Moth balls or the powder.Animals won't come near it.When I was a kid a dog kept peeing on my mom's schrubs and killing them.Put out some moth balls and he never came back.

I was told that one for veggie gardens and insects when we first moved to TN but I didn't know it'll have the same effect on bunnies....thanks!

Also, a place some hair (human hair) around and it will probably keep them away- I know it scares deer.

I use my duckweed as mulch but if I ever decide to grow scuds as live food they eat duckweed too.

All of the duckweed you gave me is gone... the swordtails and rainbows eat it apparently.
