Post: RE: Duct Cleaning - Scam??

The cellulose is worth it for the air sealing alone. Features like keeping fires from spreading and sound control are just extra. All machines are not created equal and I’d hope the professional co...

Post: RE: overlapping roof - boxing out the rats?

The problem with just boxing it in, without killing the animal is they see it as their home. They’re going to do their best to get back in. Kill the ones living there before completing the work.

So what does that kind of service run? I’ll be rehabbing a rental soon and was looking to keep a cast iron tub and replace the fiberglass surround.

Post: RE: Dynatrap Mosquito Control?

Many of the best mosquito traps use a species specific pheromone as bait. If you don’t have that species in the area, you can often still buy the trap, but it does a lot less.
