  1. And yet from 2004 on for a few years, makes this look like a drought!
  2. Roundup is inactivated the moment it hits soil..... so no help at all with things underground.
  3. IS there any room on your side of the fence between wall and house? If yes,get someone to dig down below all the roots, cutting right through them as he goes. It won't kill a big tree like that and will buy you quite a lot of time. Might have to do it again but not for a few years. You could make sure the trench is quite deep, and have him fill with cement, but guessing the roots would crack into that too so why bother?
  4. YAYYY!!! And happy for the students on the receiving end!!!
  5. All true. Add to that maybe driver was drunk.... maybe the car was stolen......maybe driver has no insurance and no way to pay..... maybe, maybe, maybe That's why paying for legal services on your insurance is a necessary expense. If YOU have done the killing of someone you might still go to jail, but in most other cases legal rep shows up and deals with police in order to avoid that.
  6. There is never a way to know. The guy who used to be the guard there (now retired) told me it depends on demand at all the machines that company services (Guad included), what they think will be needed and when, IF they actually perform as expected (he would sometimes tell me "xxx hours" and when I went back "not yet.......much later"......) Those delays were not under anyone's control out here altho' I think he had a little more info since he was the one there with the big gun! (they are safe, they wear face masks..☺️) WHAT has that got to do with this post?????
  7. There's a product sold in many ferreterias called "Plagas-Sin"..... 1 L. whitish spray bottle with red sprayer top. Label says it kills cockroaches, crickets, ants, Black Widow spiders, bedbugs, fleas, ticks, etc. I can absolutely say it kills those pesky little ants in the house instantly. I identify where they're coming from (always from behind light plugs/switches or else in spaces in mortar between bricks ). It sets from wide spray to direct stream. I aim direct stream right at source from a short distance (according to label). Dead ants everywhere!! It's a synthetic pyrethroid (not to be confused with permethrin) and is a lot safer to use. Still need precautions listed on label, but much more environmentally friendly than Cynoff.
  8. CiBanco does not own that ATM. A Guad company does, and it's up to them to do the refilling, servicing when down, etc.
  9. Cynoff and Home Defense are TERRIBLE for the environment, especially for bees (disappearing all too fast without our "help") and fish (when you wash sprayers etc. and it goes down your drains to the lake). It is also, as are all permethrin and cypermethrinin compounds, deadly for cats. If they get it on their paws(when wet or damp) and lick them to clean, it is highly likely they will die or at least be seriously ill.
  10. Yes it's confirmed by phone call..... spoken for and aimed at a worthy project HOPE SJC can work a miracle. Thanks to all.
  11. Spoken for!! And if fixable.... will go to deserving Mexicans. YAY!!!!!
  12. NICE when the power of this board results in something positive instead of ending up in a tangled mess. Second that YAY!!
  13. In the interest of all moving along, have copied/slightly altered this from last night's post in case someone interested misses same. To those who think it might be repairable...Ferret, Curmudgeon, Mainecoons, and Johanson and anyone else who wants to leap into the fray.... and knowing I'm certainly not infallible, especially with anything remotely tech-related: (my tech knowledge could fit in a thimble and still have room for a cup of tea πŸ˜‰) Have I got a deal for you! Come and get it (bring something to wrap it in) along with manual and remote (batteries included). Goes to first one in the door. Take it to SJC. IF the guy thinks he can repair it...... (1) pay the piper and get yourself a "free" 55 inch flat screen Smart TV (2) same as # 1 but be a hero and donate it to a person/family/ ?? of your choice (3) tell the guy to go ahead and fix in on HIS dime, and then HE can either keep it for himself/family or give it away to a needy person/family (SJC certainly not lacking in that category). Hoping somebody can come out a winner in this.🀞 Just don't ever bring it back 🀣 376 766 3580 to arrange (phone has answering machine)
  14. OK... enough already!!
