There’s a better way to manage pests than what has become the marketed and mostly careless chemical norm over recent decades. Natural remedies abound. Last year, I hung up “fake wasp nests” to control the wasp infestation in our home and they worked like a dream.
It was a cold, dry January day when I walked down the two flights of stairs to the basement to put a load of laundry in, a trek that was beginning to take its toll. I heard rushing water first, and then looked down to see that the basement was flooded with a good six-inches of brown water.
