I hear you, but all the folks ranting and raving on here would not take to kindly to a bunch of arm chairs telling them how to do their job... that I know. It is great as a public to be informed, but to think we are more equipped than the experts to handle it, just isn't so. It is a crappy situation no doubt, but constantly criticizing and/or deciding we are going to do it our own way, isn't going to help it, in my opinion.
LOL! The truth of the matter is, CWD is widespread across the country and I believe in only one state, somewhere out west, has it caused population level decreases. The DNR has no choice but to try their darnedest to eliminate it. If they don't and it becomes widespread, they will be ridiculed to no end. If they try to fight it, they will still be ridiculed when they fail to eliminate it, but at least they tried. IMVHO, it is here, just like the invasive species continuing to spread in our lakes. There is no way to eliminate it. But as I stated, it won't significantly impact deer numbers in the state. The disease will kill far fewer deer than the efforts to get rid of it will. It is mainly the health issues to worry about. But I've been wrong once or twice before.
Regardless of where you put that fan you'll still need another fan of some sort to circulate the air around the house. The heater one only get the air out and off the heat exchange. Put one or two more in the upper corners blowing the air back down. Hugger style ceiling fans if you have room are the best. The blades need at bare minimum 4 inches and most experts say 8 inches of clearance to the ceiling. I'm at about 4 1/2 and it works fine.
