Using a LP Refrigerator While Driving?
Yes, you can. Our fridge we keep on Automatic. When we are plugged into electricity it will use it, but when we unplug, it goes to gas. We travel with our camper all over, and keeping food cold is a must!

Using Hedge Apples for Pest Control?
You use them whole, but think long and hard before you do this! I did this as I don't like spiders and thought this method would be great as it doesn't involve chemicals. Well, what ended up happening was a ton of gnats came to visit, drawn to the hedge apples...

Using Hedge Apples for Pests?
I used whole hedge apples in my house to run out spiders, and was I ever wrong in doing it! They drew gnats, my house was full of them! And then they rotted. Gross! I got rid of them, got rid of the gnats, and learned a lesson. :-)
