Smokin’ critter-zapper

Date:20 August 2012 Tags:, , ,

Want to get rid of ants and termites? Add a small packet of cheap tobacco (or all the cigarette butts you can find) to 5 litres of water and allow it to soak for at least a week, then dilute 50:50 with water and sprinkle where the critters lurk. For an effective weed-killer, use the tobacco solution at full strength, then pour around the weeds. -JOHANN BARNARD, VANDERBIJLPARK
