2) Limestone: What is it used for? It is from previous home owner. If I cannot find a way to use it, how to get rid of it?

3) Bug B Gon: I know this item, but I don't remember if I ever bought it. It is more likely from previous home owner (which means this item is likely more than 3 years old), can it still be used? How many years can this kind of stuff last?

Thanks.

Sand: Flooding or soil amending


Limestone: Lower Ph in soil. I use it every Spring for lawn.


Big B Gon: 3 yrs should be ok to use IMO.


I called a company once for something a relative gave me while clearing out his garage. It was a 7yr old bottle of lawn bug spray. They said it's fine to use but it wont be as affective. Read label, make sure where its safe to use it on.

That has to be a CLASSIC Captain Obvious response. Thanks for the chuckle!
