We're excited to launch Not in My Yard blog
Lititz, PA (Vocus) May 4, 2010
Ahh, spring: The season of new life, new beginnings and, for many, utter frustration as a host of furry critters help themselves to our tender springtime blooms. It’s a near-universal problem for home gardeners, so Havahart has launched the new "Not in My Yard" blog, where users can contribute posts, interact with other gardeners and get expert advice on taking yards back from hungry wildlife.
Not in My Yard blog focuses on total yard protection through trapping and repelling animals humanely but effectively with Havahart products. Blog visitors may submit posts with helpful tips or interesting experiences protecting yards and gardens from the hungry critters and let others know what has worked for them.
Top contributors are listed on the blog, so the more guest posts a user submits, the better chance she has of seeing her name in lights. Chances are, there will be other Not in My Yard blog regulars with similar pest control problems -- and even gardeners within the same region. Blog users can choose to show posts by category so they don’t miss the tips most relevant to their situations.
For those less inclined to post on blogs, Not in My Yard blog is the perfect place to learn about total yard protection. Expert and guest bloggers discuss controlling wild (and not-so-wild) animals of all types, including chipmunks, deer, dogs, feral cats, groundhogs, rabbits, raccoons, rodents, skunks and squirrels. Visitors will learn about live trapping and using non-toxic, organic repellents to keep wildlife from viewing yards as a trendy neighborhood eatery. Visitors also will enjoy interesting -- and frequently humorous -- stories about wildlife in other gardeners’ yards. And perhaps most importantly, they will see they’re not alone in their fight to protect landscaping or gardens.
Not in My Yard blog also features the live Havahart Twitter feed with helpful tips and promotional discounts on total yard protection products. Users can subscribe to the RSS feed or submit an e-mail address for live updates whenever a new post is added to the blog.
“We’re excited to launch Not in My Yard blog,” said Havahart marketing associate Theresa Flavin. “This is the blog for everyone who has ever watched their tulips become rabbit food, lost their hostas to deer or wished the neighborhood skunks would find a different path to walk every night. We enjoy hearing the lively, fun and informative stories submitted by home gardeners just as much as the Not in My Yard blog readers do!”
