Burn, Baby, Burn!

Some lawn and garden pests are tougher to get rid of than others. When you've got an insect or rodent infestation that's really dug in well, and you don't want to put your family and pets through the potential health risks of using poisonous chemicals, there's no better organic pest removal solution than FIRE! 

This is a job for the flamethrower gnome:

Gophers can hole up all they want, but when you fill their little burrows with 1200 degrees of soul-searing flame, they'll quit eating your plants in a hurry. Flamethrower Gnome Right Rear

The flamethrower gnome is armed with the M2A1 flamethrower popular among US Marines in the Pacific Theater of World War II.  Complete with its twin gasoline tanks and center tank of compressed nitrogen propellant:

These guys will be making their debut next weekend at my Combat Garden Gnome booth at the Bay Area Maker Faire.  Be sure to stop by and pick one up.  Better yet, come early and buy yourself the whole set!

After that, they'll be available in my Etsy shop: http://etsy.com/shop/thorssoli 

Next up: Minesweeper Gnome!

    1. Dear Anonymous,

      If you email me, I can reply to you. If you leave an email address, I can reply to you. Right now, I can't reply to you.

      The flamethrower is the seventh version I've made. I'm still working on the eighth and ninth poses. By Christmas I aim to have ten different poses. The longer you wait, the more there will be.

      You can either buy them in my Etsy shop or you can purchase them directly from me by emailing me at sthorsson99@yahoo.com.

      Thanks for your interest,
      -Shawn
