  1. Today
  2. Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
  3. Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.
  4. That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious. But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
  5. Yesterday
  6. "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon. I am thankful for that." Thanks for making my nite.
  7. Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory. I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
  8. You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house; they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on, perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon. I am thankful for that.
  9. And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood.
  10. I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
  11. lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning. the dew soaks in if it's moist out. other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
  12. Where??!!
  13. What do you have against Japanese Beetles? Diversity is good. We need all nationalities of beetles. Even VW beetles. Asian Lady Beetles, everything. All nationality and gender identity beetles.
  14. Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
  15. Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it. I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
  16. Non-matching carpet and drapes have been known to cause numerous issues, too, with or without beetles, especially in Los Angeles. Keep the hamsters safe by putting in a zip-loc bag during spraying.
  17. Yes, I agree with you, but there are some professionals in Queens NY who provides an eco-friendly spray, which is not harmful.
  18. I smoked a pork shoulder yesterday that turned out great, but the rack it sat on took a lot of soaking and scrubbing to get clean afterwards. Got any tricks to keep the rack less crusty? Spray it with Pam before the smoke or??
  19. I stopped at a small engine shop on my way up north Monday and he confirmed what RebelSS said. I got some yellow tubing and after struggling for almost 1/2 hour, got the lines reconnected and went out and whacked some weeds. Thanks for all the replies.
  20. I read somewhere that the chemicals used by Queens NY pest control caused male pattern baldness and birth defects in pet hamsters.
  21. Last Friday, I saw a beetle at my home's carpet. It is very difficult for me to get rid with this beetle and I also saw some eggs were laying on the carpet, which was quite damaging. Then on a recommendation of my neighbor I had called up the Queens NY pest control services, who had used an insect spray and where the experts spray around the floorboards, furniture and on carpets and helped us by preventing the carpet beetles laying their eggs and removing all the food sources.
  22. Nice picture!
  23. arby's fries frozen? at supermarket? have to look for them...
  24. Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
  25. Last week
  26. Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing. 11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
