Newbee Greenie

Simple lifestyle changes  can make a difference. Example yesterday on my website  I wrote about my challenges using my own cloth bags for grocery shopping as a alternative to the stores plastic bags.  After collecting 4 cloth bags they would wind up in my kitchen and only used for planned trips to the grocery store, I decided to keep at least one bag in my truck for last minute errands.  After I empty the bag I immediately take it back out to my truck or lay it by my purse as a reminder. Keeping one in my truck for last minute errand shopping has been helpful and cuts back on the usage of plastic bags.

Rain and Pests

The has been a tough summer, Floridians have been not only fighting the humid weather but lot of rain.  The mix of humidity, rain & pests have made  outdoor summer fun, not so fun. 
If ants have made their way into your home take a look around the outside  Make sure shrubs & limbs DO NOT touch your home.  Taking time to  keep flowers, shrubs & palm branches from touching the structure of your home is time well spent. By doing this you decrease the chances of pest entry saving yourself the frustration of the ant invasion.  Also  make sure you do not have last winter wood pile close to your house it's a great place for ants to nest.
Hopefully we only have a few weeks of the rainy season left and we will be able to enjoy cookouts again without swallowing gnats with our burgers.
Have a great summer.
