  1. I go out after dark, usually two hours after dark. Grab a flashlight and follow the trail back to their nest. Usually a hole in the wall or hole in the ground.

    Around the nest I spread “Patron Ultra” (no not the tequila). These are special pellets the ants love and the ants bring them into the nest and the ants die. This is the best method as spraying them just kills what you see and not the whole nest.



    I get Patron at the garden store next to 7/11 in Riberas.


  2. It's true that around here the rain measurements are different from one neighborhood to the next.  Many years I hear that I have recorded too little rain and other years I have recorded too much rain. I own and operate the equipment at the ajijicweather.com station. Twice a year I calibrate the rain gauge and other instruments on the NOAA approved weather station.  I feel comfortable with what I publish.

  3. I am trying to locate a driver with a van in the Tequila area.  We are a group of 6 and would like to hire a driver to take us outside of the downtown area.  We are driving ourselves to Tequila from Lake Chapala but we want a driver when in town. This will happen Sunday Sept 1.  Anyone with a contact?  The hotel already told us to taxi but we would like a van ...

  4. I used Luzma and was VERY happy. The experience was easy.  Everyone on this board must understand that not everyone is as experienced to driving in Guadalajara as others. I drive in Guad all the time but that doesn't mean I know what line to stand in or what papers I need to make the experience an easy one.  Anyway, Luzma is great, and we had the best conversation along the way.  Flame away people ...

  5. I just went through this process as I wished to decline Part B.  Social Security sent me a letter to my Seattle mailbox about 1.5 months before my 65th birthday.  You have to sign and mail back the form to decline.  If you want to have Part B then you do not have to mail the letter back as you get Part B by default. I had the letter sent down from my Seattle mailbox and I signed it and placed it in the return envelope they give you. I knew someone that was going back to the USA so I had them mail it when they arrived in the US.

    I was unable to find anywhere in the online Social Security system a place to decline Part B.  I did notice online about a week after my letter was mailed in the US that my Part B was declined.
