The Mantis BSV (Blower-Shredder-Vacuum) serves as a multi-task machine that blows, vacuum-shreds and recycles yard debris into garden mulch or compost. The commercial-grade 21.2-cc gas-powered engine blows air at speeds up to 125 miles per hour. The patented four-blade metal shredder (located in front of the fan) reduces leaves, pine needles and small twigs into smaller particles that break down more quickly in compost piles. Mantis

Betzen Manufacturing's new wireless deer fence is designed to train deer to stay out of yards and gardens. Individual wireless deer fence posts that release perfumed oil are positioned around plants and on deer paths leading into a yard or garden. When deer touch the posts, the wireless deer fence delivers a harmless shock, less than 0.15 joules, that frightens the deer from the area and makes them afraid to return. The posts should be placed 5 to 25 feet apart and require 2 AA batteries. Betzen Manufacturing
