Carpenter ants do not build anything...

Carpenter ants do not build anything, they eat it down.

On a recent listing appointment I noticed ants, large ants around an outdoor shed.

I told the home owner that he had a major issue.

He disagreed.  I bet him that if he took off one panel and there was no issue, I would give him $100 to fix the place he tore the board off.   If I am right, he would give ME the listing.

 

 

 

 

I think I may have won the bet!

What a wonderful sound!

THUNDER!!! What a beautiful sound. We are getting some rain. Not a lot is expected, but even a 1/2 would be perfect. We do not need a downpour as the young garden plants would not survive. But for right now the light rain will be just what the… more

WE paid the ultimate price!

The 4th of July like so many other holidays have lost their meaning. But for me, I will NEVER forget. My family since WWI has lost 17 family members, 12 in WWI alone. This is nothing compared to our forefathers who first fought to make us… more

Well, we are forecasted to have some hotter weather. 90's in the coming days. That kind of heat can make a man's throat parched. My wife knows that and understands that. So the kind heart that she has allows me to stop at the local watering… more
