  1. Ortho Fire Ant Killer handles leaf cutters. Going thru the same problem. Wiped out most of the mounds but still some refusing to die. Actually these are granules you apply then drench with water which soaks in and, hopefully, eradicates the Queen. Mercadolibre.
  2. No longer lakeside. If you were in town you’d go to Kitchen Harmony and ask for contact info. (Little strip mall south side of Carreterra just west of Walmart). Alternatively google might yield contact info for kitchen harmony.
  3. Aranza Pamplona. 333-470-2300. Bilingual
  4. I’ve done it but had to pay an arm and a leg for insurance because of Mexican License. My credit card did not include the car insurance but some might.
  5. Don’t know self help cures but my gardener referred to this as “la plaga”. He sprayed the plants every few months and the problem never came back. Is there a garden service Lakeside that will come and spray for you?
  6. Personally, I think thinking in hourly rates is not all that applicable here. In the maid search I would have the applicant come in and either give you a price for the job you expect to be done; or, let her do the job one day for a stipulated price and then give you a price.
  7. Just leave the light in the garage on from dusk tildawn
  8. That’s not an oil leak, just marking its territory
  9. Another yes for Azucena. She’s been in business for nigh unto 20 years so lots of experience and a nice person. i am curious about your “handle” since Bruce died in ‘73 it would appear your into jeet kune do?
  10. I would never hire anyone based on working hours. Angus hit the nail on the head. I would ask for references from those you’ve felt comfortable with and check them out.
  11. Oops, yes Annas is telcel. Had the amigo but now monthly. Will try both, thanks
  12. Just received an invoice from telcel for the purchase of a phone. Problem is, did not buy a phone. Name and address correct on bill. No signatures at bottom and address is a year old. My concern is that the information of name address and telephone number would have been only available at Anna’s the Telmex Distributor next to Alexs Pasta place in Ajijic. i understand this location has been comprised a couple of times so thinking the information was derived from a stolen file. no actual charge to a credit card as yet and there would have been none on file with Anna. tried co
  13. Dobermans here don’t seem to enjoy the popularity they do in the States. American preferred is somewhat ambiguous. If your referring to style they, the Doberman, are pretty much the same all over north and south America. You can go to the FCM website (Mexican Kennel Club) and click on eventos. To my knowledge most of the shows have been cancelled. But a dog show is the best place to go to see what’s available in terms of a breeder. i would be very surprised if a reputable breeder would sell you both a male and a female as the implication that you want to breed them is somethin
  14. Some may have had a good deal on their solo search but more haven’t. It’s a crap shoot. I’d go with S&S because of their experience and reputation in the business as well as exhibiting honesty and integrity through the years.
  15. Like Curmudgeon I’ve used S&S Auto for years. Tried Parker and Bellon previously but found S&S far more helpful when the chips were down
  16. Dagotee - I try to see if I can find what I want from .com.mx first and check to see its not noted as an importation. Then I compare with amazon US and buy on US credit card. I also check mercadolibre mexico, also set up with us card, as they have some great items and opening the account was easy. I prefer shipping by DHL but Fedex good too. My least favorite is shipping via USPS as they currently can’t track in Mexico.
  17. Yes. Tried Bancomer for a year - same thing plus more screw ups. That was 12 or 13 years ago. More confident to pay myself.
  18. What is it, a reverse osmosis system? I scanned the website and thought they Just went on and on and on so maybe I missed it. Couldn’t see the cost except it was free if 6 persons were brought into the fold.
  19. Check out the Trouper store in Ajijic alongside of OXXO and Intercam. Great selection in Guadalajara in fact one large store carries only handles. Any of the drivers should know.
  20. Have lived in Colima for about 7 years. This time of year there are delightful morning temperatures unlike lakeside. Hotter in summer but not nearly as hot as Las Vegas or Dallas or Tucson etc. Runs about 10 degrees f higher than Ajijic. As the elevation climbs cooler temperatures prevail so in summer if too hot take a little trip up to Suchitlan. Humidity in lakeside usually too dry for me so prefer here. Best appreciated if you can converse in Spanish at least somewhat. You do not have the safety net lakeside provides. i would suggest you make a few trips out this way
