Ten Things To Consider Before Buying A Bird HouseWritten by Cedar Creek Woodshop
Ten Things To Consider When Purchasing A Bird HouseWhen you decide to buy one bird house or more -- be aware that there are many designs being sold that are unsuitable for birds. These houses may not attract any birds or types of birds you wish, or they may actually be harmful. Many are very cute and look like little decorated houses. There is nothing wrong with these, but they are usually more appropriate as indoor decoration than as good safe homes for wild birds. Below is a checklist of ten most important features of a good working bird house. Before you put a house out for wild birds, be sure it has these ten features. If it is decorative and still has these features, then it is fine to put it out. The Ten Things: 1. No Perch Tree holes in wild have no perches, so birds that use nest boxes do not need them. They can be a disadvantage in that they may attract House Sparrows, an invasive species that often takes over nests from our native hole-nesting birds.
2. Diameter Of Entrance Hole Most of our common hole-nesting birds can use an entrance hole 1-1/2 inches in diameter. This size also keeps out Starlings, another invasive species that takes over nest boxes from native species.
3. Inside Flooring Dimensions The inside dimensions of box are important and should be at least 4 inches by 4 inches so that there is room for young to develop.
Lawn Mowers Starting Engine ProblemsWritten by Andrew Caxton
Lawnmowers Hot Engines Starting Difficulties
Cold weather might be most typical known problem relating lawnmowers starting difficulties. Your mower could cause problems as well when engine is hot. Most garden owners using traditional gas mowers realize that they donít start as smoothly as it should when engine is hot. What to do when this problem happens? We describe how to overcome this trouble and what to do about it.
What are reasons by which hot engines donít start as they should be? Well, basically starting engine problems are based on fuel. If engine has been working longer than it does normally, it becomes too hot and fuel canít circulate correctly. That is caused by way in which vapor blocks it, and then engine wonít start as it should. Sometimes, engines donít start at all forcing some lawn mower parts work much harder than they use to do it, increasing chance to break them down.
Once a mower engine has started, it will gain temperature until it was shut off. While a mower or lawn tractor engine is working, is when highest volume of vapor circulates around. Therefore, this is time during more chances to obstruct engine are bigger too. We would suggest in not working during extremely hot temperatures. If you have been working in a hot weather, and have turned off engine, you might experience a starting problem, please wait a few minutes until engine is totally cold, then try to start it back again.
