Keeping the Mice out by Fixing the Holes

Plaster wall repairs and other stucco repairs on the outside of your home or garage should be done on a cloudy day, out of direct sunlight when the air temperature is between 59 degrees Fahrenheit and 85 degrees Fahrenheit. If it is too cold, the adobe mix will not set right and if it is too hot, the adobe may dry too quickly, preventing a good seal between the layers of adobe.

Spiders, spiders everywhere!

Spiders and other creepy crawlers find their way into our homes, not matter what time of year or season. To keep them out of your living areas, a complete cleaning of the home first is your best defense. Then, keep them away with natural repellants such as moth balls, peppermint oil and dishwashing detergent.
