      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Spider Control on Home Exterior?

Recommended Posts

I have white vinyl siding and the spider feces (?) is staining the vinyl especially in corners where webs are everywhere. There are little black stain spots that do not come off with any detergent I've tried.

I can't keep up with removing the webs/spiders. Are there any suggestions to reduce the spiders, such as a spray or some type of chemical that can be spread in the rocks to keep the spiders from crossing over from the lawn and crawling up the siding? I tried some wasp/hornet spray and it discolored the vinyl.

Also, any recommendations on a potent vinyl siding cleaning solution?

I would try Crud Cutter or Crud Cutter House Wash on the spots. Mix a solution of it up in a "Hudson Sprayer" and spray it on, let it sit a bit, then scrub it off. It will take a rag or sponge, mabe even a brillow pad, but it should come off. Or the Crud Cutter followed by a good hard powerwashing may work for you.

As far as keeping them off, there are some residual pesticides that you could put around your house, but they may be hard on pets. We used to use a diluted dish soap sprayed on the siding to keep the boxelder bugs off, might work on the spiders. confused

Tempo rocks for controlling insects.

Its expensive, like $35.00 for a pint, but you only use a tablespoon or so in a 3 gallon sprayer. Spray your foundation, walls, around windows and doors etc, and its good bye insects.
