  • Have you heard the saying that it is better to give than receive? This is true. There is nothing quite like the excitement of giving someone a wrapped present you know is going to blow their mind. There is something magical about giving a coat to a kid in need or giving time to feed hungry people during the holiday season. Giving feels good. When we give of ourselves, we actually get something in ...

  • We're all familiar with what a rat is. They're large. They're mangy. And they get into St. Louis homes and businesses to find food. But, let's take a look at one rat in particular. And let's focus on one very specific thing we all need to know about them. We have a few rats that can cause issues here in St. Louis, but one rat stands head and shoulders above the rest.

But, the cuteness of a wild animal is not necessarily an indication of how safe it is. Raccoons are a prime example. They're fluffy, they're curious, and they have a wide-eyed stare that may have you thinking that these animals are too innocent to ever do anything wr...

There are several things that opossums find attractive and, if you make a few changes, you may be able to deter these, and other wild animals, from plaguing you.

  • This is the time of year where we get together with friends and family to give thanks. It is an American tradition that some think dates back to the pilgrims and native Americans and, while this is partially true, it actually began in 1863. President Abraham Lincoln, as a gesture of gratitude for an important victory of the Union Army, instituted a day of Thanksgiving. From that point on, Thanksgi...

  • When there is a familiar nip in the air, and the leaves start to turn beautiful, we know that winter is on the way here in Missouri. But we aren't the only ones who know. All those wild creatures that live outside also know it, and they begin scrambling to make preparations. Some dig deeper burrows. Some begin "squirreling away" nuts for the winter. Others eat to put on a fat layer in preparation ...

  • When the weather begins to turn nippy, mice begin to look for a nice cozy place to spend the long winter months. And they are not picky. If they can get into a shack with a warm fireplace, they will go there. If they can get into the wall voids of the local greasy spoon restaurant, they will gladly move in. If they can get into the attic of a grand estate, they will quickly set up housekeeping. Mi...

  • When we think of insulation, often we only think of the savings we're going to see on our heating bill. But insulation doesn't just keep the heat from escaping in the winter. It also keeps the heat from getting into your home in the summer. Insulation prevents heat transfer by reducing heat loss by conduction, convection, and radiation. And every home that has a good layer of insulation is going t...

  • Let's talk about moles. No, not the beauty mark kind that is considered pretty on the face of a pretty girl, but the animal kind that can make your yard look less than pretty if it is allowed to set up housekeeping underneath your property. Moles are destructive creatures that feed on grubs, insects, and earthworms (which are good for your soil). To do this, they tunnel underneath the ground, whic...

You have to go up into the attic, drag the boxes down, hope that all of the lights were put away neatly and, if they weren't, spend hours untangling the mess. Once that's done, you'll be getting out the ladder and going around your ...
