I have a friend who lost his home to a fire. (Please don’t feel sorry for him) He is keeping a great attitude and taking action to get back to his normal way of life. He is a business owner. He is a musician. He is opinionated. He is knowledgeable. I know he will be just fine, with a little help from his friends.
He was visiting with us over the weekend. Casual conversation and laughs were the theme. He was telling me that he already has the architectural plans for his new home. Dirt work is underway. The build starts soon. Grass doesn’t grow under his feet.
As the conversation progressed, he was asking me about preventative treatment for his home and property. He was worried about mice and insects infesting his home during construction. I told him that a pre-build termite treatment would be a great place to start. I am not licensed or insured for that, but could recommend another great local company. “But, I wanted to use you,”he said. “Maybe I will take the test,” I said. My insurance renewal is coming up, too.
I offered to place rodent bait stations on his property. They offer good protection when serviced correctly and at regular intervals. He is rebuilding on his rural property and could benefit from rodent control.
The next sentence, as we interrupted each other, was about pest insulation. He quizzed me, “Too bad insulation couldn’t help with bugs, huh? I want to take all the preventative measures to keep my home safe.” Oh, but it can! I don’t know a lot about this particular product. Now, I am on a fact finding mission.
