  • Gardens may ease pinch of rising food prices

    We are approaching another busy season of fun in the sun, weddings, backyard parties and more. 

    With food costs going up by the minute, having a garden might help. Which means more things to do, but oh, the benefits of having your very own stash of food.  It certainly will help to keep the summer food costs down.

  • Spring season brings termite activity in local homes

    Springtime, with its warmer temperatures and more abundant rainfall, is typically the time when winged termites emerge inside homes and other structures. Termites swarm from the colony to disburse, fall to the ground, find mates and start new colonies in the soil.

    From now through May, swarms of winged termites may be seen inside your home, signaling an infestation that can cause extensive and costly damage. Because “swarmers” are attracted to light, they are often seen around windows, doors and light fixtures.
