Kayak fishing is a wonderful way to enjoy such times. But there are moments when a little plinking is also fun. Firearms would be nice but there is a serious safety issue. I've been taking a slingshot along for some time now. One of my favorites is this little PeeWee from A+ Plus slingshots . It's made from a piece of multiplex and looks like it is a natural tree fork. Light, strong and very accurate. I shoot BBs or 1/4 inch steel shot from it and have been very pleased with the performance. The can in the photo was hit dead center at 96 feet, the ball punched right though the metal with no problem. Slingshots are still very inexpensive and at least in the case of this model a made in American product by a small businessman in his own shop. I'm still wroking on a bow fishing combo that will include an Emmrod, Qualia DM 40 reel, 200lb braided line and of course a slingshot set up for arrows. Fun stuff to be sure.

Pest Barrier group has some great products they should make the lives of pest control professionals and their clients much easier. Rat Out and Border Patrol are two of my favorites. They earn a place on every pest control truck out there.
EPIC. The gentleman on the left side of the shot the founder of the firm, Dave and the other fellow is also a Dave, the National Sales Manager. The products are really something, repellents for deer, rabbits, moles, gophers, and armadillos. All are natural based and environmentally responsible. No need to worry about kids or pets. For the pest control operator or landscape professional these products represent a bucket of money they have in their truck. A great service for their customers that can be offered at a reasonable cost and still keep the profit margin for their business in the black.

EPIC, who manufactures and markets repellents for deer, moles, rabbits, armadillos, rabbits, and gophers. The second firm was Bird Barrier's new Pest Barrier division markets a variety of pesticide free solutions. Both firms are innovative and forward thinking, just my kind of folks. The pictures show me in the Pest Barrier booth holding one of the new electronic Termite Seekers and in front of the Pest Management Professional Magazine booth with my picture there. We write a monthly column for that publication. It was loads of fun and very busy.
