I am not a lawyer nor an insurance guy, but I would be careful about saying you prevent lyme disease. You can get into trouble quick. Use a contract which limits your claims. I had one from NPMA that...

Well, it looks like blown is the only solution anyway. I got up there and measured and the rafters are 17.75" apart. They don't make batts that size.

OOPS! You're right. I thought it said 48 feet, it's inches. Big difference. So there goes any cost savings with that plan.

I live south of Houston where it is oppressively humid. I plan on insulating my garage and putting in a portable air conditioner. I have considered just throwing some batts in the attic, but the...

No. I understand what you are saying. That you gave him a certain price instead of a higher one on the idea that he was going to send you more work is irrelevant. You told him you would do the work...

Those are a whole lot of radically different questions with entirely too little information to give an opinion on.

Absolutely not! Do not spray anything!

That's the short answer. Just say no.

While termite activity can continue for a while, and it can take up to 90 days for complete control, I have found...

Trap any that may be inside. I don't know what treatment you have in mind for new holes, but there used to be baits labeled for placement in burrows. Since I don't do it, I haven't really noticed if...

I would think putting a bait station by the hole would take care of it. Perhaps entice them with some nuts in the station. After that, exclusion is always a good idea. Seal up those entry points....

I am not a bug psychologist. Nor a mouse psychologist. Asking the mouse what rationale it has for being where it is makes no sense.

I'll look at these the next time I go to the store. I went to the website and they look pretty good. I always check the bottom design. Around each of the "cleats" is a line of rubber. Hopefully it...

That might work, if you could dust it in there it would be better. It won't be quick, though. Boric acid takes a few days to kill them.

Soap might also work, the foamier it is the more it might...

Spray the baseboards and behind stuff in there, put out some insect glueboards, and spray the yard and perimeter at least around that portion.

Mosquitoes won't fly in a 10mph wind. That's what I've read anyhow. So as long as you stay in the wind they shouldn't bother you.
