 Due to recent metabolic changes,I had a really hard time with Pops blood sugar last month.

He won't be home for a couple more weeks.

 I'm considering an insulin pump.

Anyone with personal experience,please advise.

 Thank you.

Try doing something innocuous, like putt putt, bike rising, driving range or walking some place he finds interesting (woods, urban center) and then - after 30 minutes of nothingness gently bring it up. Catch him off guard. Not a full frontal assault.

Yes, it isn't working, but we haven't seen any more ticks.  Maybe the treatment is finally working.

I remember a hike I took with my dog that brought us home with over 40 ticks on the two of us!  As beautiful as it was, I never went back to that forest again. {#No}

Depends on the level on infestation.  I would recommend using the children's Off first for yourselves before resorting to the more potent forms if you think you need it.

Is the problem inside the house ?  If so, you may need to use bombs to fumigate the place.  Effective, but includes washing nearly everything afterwards including dishes.  Plus you need to put out all nat gas pilot lights to avoid explosions.  Depending on outdoor infestations, lawns need to be treated for fleas as well.

HTH

Thanks guys. It shut off, but i'm not sure why.
I kept trying the kill switch, that may have been it. Can't say for sure.
I tried tilting it, hoping to cut off the gas. That didn't work since I just put gas in it and it was more than half full.
I didn't try to get it to stall. Didn't think it would.
There is no choke on this thing.
I don't know. I just don't know. {#Stupid}

NEED HELP QUICK!!

Buzz is using a gas powered weedwacker. it won't shut off. the kill switch isn't working. how can he turn it off?

 

Or:
  • Verify that the off switch does not work, by trying it a few times.
  • Hold the edger securely, or rest it on a flat surface.
  • Do not rev the engine by pulling the trigger that turns the blade!
  • Move the throttle to the "cold start" position
    • The "throttle" is that switch you have to flip before pulling the start cord. It usually indicated by a "cold start" and "warm start" label, sometimes a turtle and rabbit icon is used, etc .. Typically you have to rev the engine in the "Cold Start" position (turtle), and then fire the engine up in the "Warm Start" position (rabbit). Usually this is a lever with an "up" or "down" position. Sometimes it is a pin that is either "in" or "out".
  • With the throttle in the "cold start" position, pull the trigger that would normally rev the engine and turn the blade and hold it down.
  • Hold the trigger down / inwith the throttle in the "cold start" position until the engine shuts off.
    • What this does is "choke" your engine out and forces it to stall. This will effectively turn your engine off and will not (should not) damage your engine if you only have to do it once, or maybe a few times. I do not recommend using this method to turn off your edger's engine on a regular basis!
  • Now your engine is off. You're done!
