WeatherWise: Keep Mosquitoes and Insects Out of Your Rain Barrel


We love our rain barrel. It looks terrific in our back yard and conserves natural rain water for our thirsty shrubs and plants. Tap water maintains plants--they thrive on rain water.

Trouble is, mosquito larvae thrive in warm sitting water, plus beetles, flies, bees and other assorted creepy crawlies fall in. Custom fit your rain barrel with a lid made of small netting. Inexpensive window screening works perfectly and is readily available at your local home center. Alternatively drill large holes 1 to 2 inches in diameter in the rain barrel's lid.

It's time to stop wasting our precious resources, and here's a gadget that will do just that. Orbit Irrigation’s solar-powered wireless rain/freeze sensor acts together with the Orbit Professional Irrigation System to detect when there’s rain or when it’s freezing. It communicates wirelessly to the Sprinkler system to let it know when to shut off, and when it can resume sprinkler operations. The sensor also has a solar panel to keep it powered without you needing to replace the battery or hook it into wall power.

Wireless Digital Rain Gauge - Meaure Rainfall


Wireless weather gauges are the way to go. Not only will they let you know how much rain is falling without getting wet, they also allow you to get a reading at the device itself with an LCD display. This wireless weather gauge however is not wireless - it's just battery powered. Oh well - most modern weather stations come with one that is wireless and transmits the data inside, but if you want a "wireless" weather gauge on the cheap - this is for you. The LCD display on the front shows how much rainfall has transpired, and you can reset the rain gauge with the push of a button.
