Hand-Cranked Dustin-Mizer Applies Organic Insecticides In Powder Form
Thank you for the write-up in your last issue on our battery-powered, hand-held garden planter. Here are a couple other products that your readers may find interesting. The hand-cranked Dustin-Mizer applies organic insecticides in powder form. It's equipped with a 2 1/2-in. dia., 16-in. long tube and a fill box on top. All you do is fill the hopper and turnscreen and then enters a turbulent air stream created by a venturi inside the unit. The insecticide comes out in a cloud in a nice, even flow.
  You don't have to mix anything, there's no corrosion, and no need to clean the unit after you're done using it. It also works fast - if you have just a few plants you can finish dusting them in the same time it would take just to mix up liquid chemicals. Works great with environmentally safe products such as diatamaceous earth, Sulfur, Sevin, etc. Sells for 29.95 plus $1.50 S&H.
  The Le Weeder is designed to get rid of very small weeds. It's equipped with a triangle-shaped, sharpened stainless steel blade that allows precise weeding and thinning around delicate plants. The handle is made of high-impact plastic and is contoured for a natural, comfortable grip. Overall length of the tool is 9 1/2 in.; the blade itself is 3 1/2 in. long. Works great when you're thinning carrots, beets, because you can work up close to the plants without disturbing the roots. Sells for $6.95 plus $1.00 S&H. (John M. Cole, R.J.
