If there’s something strange in your neighbourhood

Who you gonna call?

Beetle Busters!!

Sometimes things go according to plan or even better. Not often mind you, but this is one thing that we managed to accomplish quicker and easier than expected. Beetle Busting, or treating the wood for termites, Capricorn beetle and other nasties. It is absolutely necessary and as we were well aware that we had some Capricorn beetle we wanted to get on with it pronto.

We were expecting the stuff to stink but actually it wasn’t too bad, although it did sting especially when I sprayed it into my eye!! It took us the whole day to do 3 treatments and today we cleaned up the mess that it made as half of what we sprayed ended up on the floor!! As with anything that we undertake it was a daunting prospect yesterday morning as we had to do every bit of wood in the roof, and we have a huge roof.  However we now have beams that should be good for 20 years.

    We enjoy being kept up to date and appreciate the time it takes to do it. What a wonderful roof – you are naughty not to wear masks when spraying that lethal stuff!

      We wore masks, promise!! I also wore googles which kept misting up so I couldn’t see anything! The beams are looking fab now, it is a shame that we have to cover some of the smaller ones and the Spanish tiles with insulation, but if we don’t we will freeze in winter and swelter in summer!
