What to do at the first sign of bugs

WARRIOR — Garden tip: At the first sign of bugs, mix one quart of warm water, five drops of liquid soap, five drops of ammonia and one drop of Listerine mouthwash. Cover the plants that need to be sprayed with a brown paper bag. Cut a tiny hole in the side of the bag to be able to spray the plant. Be sure to spray while the water is still warm. If you have tiny flies that swarm around your plant, get someone who smokes to blow some smoke through the hole in the brown bag. This works. The flies can be white or brown. It does not matter. Do not use both control methods on one plant, though.

• Sympathy and prayers are needed for the family of Mitchell Reid. He left this walk of life last week. To his family: We know God will be with each one as you deal with your loss. He will be greatly missed.
