BZZZZZ!

What? Too early?! I’m already thinking about mosquitoes, ticks, spiders and all that fun stuff – aren’t you? Ok, well, I suppose it is a ~bit~ early. But I’m picking up my new-to-me car tomorrow and I’ve been thinking about what I want the wrap design to say. I’m thinking to focus on things we […]

Weather watch

So much unpredictability this season! The weather is not cooperating! Or perhaps more accurately, the weatherman is not cooperating. IT would be ever so much easier to plan the guys’ days if we could believe whatever the weather people posted. Supposed to rain but it doesn’t; not supposed to, but it does. And always, always, […]

Rats With Wings (Pigeons)

Pigeons, birds, rats-with-wings. Call them what you will. It doesn’t change the  fact that, unless you are feeding them for twopence in downtown London (like in “Mary Poppins”), those are definitely not creatures that you would want around. Pigeons are persistent birds and will take over areas by covering them with their  waste, destroying whole […]

Mites are arachnids (they have FOUR pairs of legs and […]

Invasion Of The Carpenter Ants ! Eeeep!

If you live in cottage country ( as in Simcoe County, Tay or Tiny Townships, or Muskoka), trees and forests are never too far away, and you are likely not a stranger to a myriad of types of pests. This also means that you are very likely to encounter the the six legs, smooth/round upper […]

HELP! Banquet Happening In My Garage … & I’m Not Invited! Raccoon!

Don’t you wish raccoons were the adorable cute and cuddly creatures you see in cartoons like in Disney’s “Pocahontas”? But yeah, nope. There’s a reason they are classified as pests. And this is true even if you live in Victoria Harbour, where nature is abundant. When you actually get close up to them (not that […]
