The goose season, which will run from Oct. 15 through Nov. 3, has been reduced to 20 days in length from last year's 30 day season.

The early goose season, which ran from Sept. 5 - Sept. 15, saw spotty to good results, with some hunters doing very well and others not being able to find birds. "The Canada geese are beginning to show up now, and more are coming in every day," Spoden said. "The birds moved down into the state following the last big cold front and there are quite a few in area refuges."

Save your money on 'hedge balls' marketed as spider repellents Grocery store produce aisles fea- ture a lot of products that are good for you, but lately a number of them across the state are selling "hedge balls," which will lighten your wallet but won't repel spiders as the promot- ers claim, according to University of Minnesota Extension Service experts in horticulture and entomology. Deb Brown, extension horticultur- ist, explains that hedge balls are also known as Osage oranges, the tough, inedible orange fruit from thorny trees that are not native to this area. They are being promoted as spider repel- lents, but Brown says there is no evi- dence that they do anything to'keep spiders from invading your home. "There's no magic bullet to control spiders in the home," says Jeff Hahn, extension entomologist. "At certain times of the year, homeowners see more spiders and become concerned about control.

He adds that spider control in the home begins outdoors. Caulking and sealing any nooks or crannies that spi- ders could use to get inside is a start. Keep grass and weeds mowed around the house. Remove piles of wood, stones or brush around the foundation because they can shelter spiders and allow them easier access to the indoors, he says. "Few spiders in this area do any harm to people," Hahn says. "Most are not aggressive. If they do attempt to bite, their mouth parts are too weak to penetrate human skin." He says the best indoor control measures include knocking down spi- der webs and removing or crushing spider egg sacs when you see them in basements or other parts of the home. "It's possible to treat spiders with insecticides, but just spraying the foundation of a house to prevent entry won't help," Hahn says. "To be effec- rive, the spray must get into tiny foun- dation cracks and spaces under siding where the spiders hide. That's difficult for a homeowner to do." Extension has two helpful publica- tions on spiders. Potentially Dangerous Spiders (item number FS- 6962) and Common Spiders In and Around Homes (item number FO- 1033) are available at county exten- sion offices or through the Distribution Center on the University's St. Paul campus. Phone 612-624-4900 within the Twin Cities or 800-876-8636 toll-free outside the metro area for ordering information. Both publications are available on the World Wide Web as well.

Undetected vision difficulties may lead to low grades, poor self-esteem and a negative attitude from your child. A survey done by the Better Vision Institute has gathered some amazing facts: > In school vision screenings using only the "Big E" eye chart detect up to 30 percent of vision problems in children. > One out of every four children has an unde- tected vision problem that may impede learning. > Eighty percent of what we learn before age 12, we learn through our visual system. > Children are the least likely group to have visited an eye care professional in the last year. > Poor vision is one of the leading causes of learning diffi- culties and behavior problems in elementary school children. Other symptoms that may indicate vision problems are rubbing eyes, using fingers for reading, headaches, sitting close to "IV or holding books close to the face. For a complete vision system evaluation for your child, please make an appointment with Dr. Ronn McDaniel. .1 Your Care Team Eye Dr. Ronn MeDaniei OPTOMETRIST 128 NW 2nd Street Ortonville, MN 320-839-3413 THURSDAY EVENING AND SATURDAY APPOINTMENTS AVAILABLE!
