Supaturf line marking helps South African WTD day

Our Supaturf South Africa colleagues were asked if it was possible to create the outlines of the words to be used in an advert for Domestos WTD (world toilet day) promoting improved sanitation in South Africa.  The advert will be published in all major South African newspapers and on one of the television channels.

 

600 children from an underprivileged school near our Supaturf South Africa premises in Mt Edgecombe were bussed in to the Kings Park Stadium and positioned inside the word outlines for the photo shoot.

 

The cameraman was hoisted 12 metres up in a Cherry Picker from where the photo was taken. We had to adjust the shape of the lettering to compensate for the camera distortion created by the angle of the shot. This was established by taking numerous photos and then plotting out the area bounded by the camera viewfinder.

 

Besides the fact that there was persistent rain on the day we did the marking out, we had great fun doing the advert.  We used Red Aerosol to mark the outlines, which rendered them invisible to anyone walking casually past the pitch. We received many compliments from the production crew who said it was an absolute pleasure working with Supaturf South Africa, and they were impressed by the efficiency and quality of the work produced.

Clay Breaker

Vitax Clay Breaker is ideal for conditioning soil without affecting its natural pH. It will break up even the heaviest clay, making the soil easier to work, improving drainage, and enhancing soil warmth for earlier crop growth.

 

Clay Breaker can be used at any time of year, but best results are gained by applying in the Autumn after rough digging. Combined with winter frosts, it will give good soil structure for Spring planting.

 

Use as directed, and leave for a month before re-working the soil.

Nippon Traditional Rat Trap

A professional strength rat trap ready for attaching bait.

 

Pack size: 1 trap

 

Place a small portion of food such as fish or meat onto the bait plate. Carefully pull back the spring loop fully and insert the locking rod inside the hoop on the bait plate. Lift bait pedal and simultaneously ease pressure off spring loop until locking rod engages. Place the trap with the bait plate facing the wall.

 

Site rat traps in areas where rats are likely to travel, as they move from hiding places to feeding and drinking sites. For best results use along walls and runways, or adjacent to gnawed openings and burrows where rats are active. Block holes and passageways to force rats into the area where traps are sited. Outdoors, place under lean-to boards.

Allow 48 hours for an initial catch. If no catch, place a protein bait such as fish paste, peanut butter or bacon on the bait pedal. Re-set the trap if needed.

 

Caution – the rat trap is very powerful and extreme caution should be used when handling the set traps.
