I'm not sure if this would help, but my mallard-type ducks LOVE pillbugs/rollypollies/isopods/potato bugs/what-ever-they're-called-regionally. Sluggo also works on them. Mallard ducks probably wouldn't care for the super-hot heat in your hot spot (mine were unhappy when we got to 110ish last year), but maybe muscovies ducks can handle the heat better?

My kids love sprouting the seed with toothpicks over water, but that’s as far as any I’ve ever started got. Then I read somewhere on the Internet (so you know it’s true) that most seeds from grocery store avocados will never produce a plant that bears fruit. Has anyone had any luck ever sprouting their own fruitful avocado tree?

And, of course, feel free to discus why you think your favorite color is the best, or to suggest a color you want added to the poll! (And, if you don't have an apple and therefore cannot vote, ask, and I'll probably give you one )
