  1. Thank you this is helps.
  2. Looks like this spring it will be war at my house. Did you spread the niban both outside and under the crawl space? I never saw them before. In fact I don't even see them in the crawl space. I am hoping I got them early with 3 bombings over a 10 day period. Especially when I doubled up on the bombs. This could be ugly. ' Did you plug around the pipes with foam or with steel wool?
  3. Fred Funny that you have them. They showed up at our house in early October. Never saw one before. Especially amazing because I pretty much saturated the foundation and ground with Bifin about two weeks before they showed up. I was trying to get rid of the average everyday cricket. Dam things can jump. Had a tough time getting the first couple until I figured out that the vacuum was the answer. Suck them right up. I bombed the crawl space. That night I had more scrambling around. Probably chased them out. So I bombed it again, this time I doubled up the bombs. Then it got quite for a week then they show up again. So I bombed the crawl space again. I have not seen one since, but now that it is getting cold lets see what happens.
  4. Move up the line a little and look in towns like River Edge. Still on the Pascack Valley line. I lived in East Rutherford years ago, my wife worked out in Wayne. When we moved we moved up the line to Hillsdale, my train ride increased a little, but believe it or not my wife's commute got better. Depending on how you hit the traffic light about 5 minutes from the Parkway. She used to run Parkway to Rt. 80. Beat driving 3 and 46. Problem is nothing is cheap in Bergen County.
  5. Lyndhurst is a nice town. Take a look at East Rutherford also. Lower Tax's. Rutherford is really nice but expensive. A lot of old Colonials in Rutherford. East Rutherford was originally more of a blue collar town. A lot of nice towns in that area. Convenient to shopping and getting into New York.
  6. Fred I have heard about the charcoal trick before. I would think it has to dry out for a bit before that would work. Just be careful, you will need to make sure there are no dried leaves around since it may take a couple of days to smolder down. Looking online I found several ways of burning the stumps out, but using anything that ignites like Kerosene sounds iffy near a house. Try drilling out the center and filling it with lit charcoal. Everything I read said drill the holes deep so it burns all the way down.
  7. Fred I have never had any luck with those granules. I found that in South Jersey, the termites finish it off in about 3 years. You might be able to rent a small stump grinder. Otherwise dig around it and try to cut it off so it is below the ground then bury it. If it is not too big it should not be too much of an issue.
  8. I just picked up the LG G7 ThinQ on Saturday. The sound on it is great. Easy to understand the person you are talking to. The camera takes great shots. Has two lenses, one for wide angle. I was going to get either the Google Pixle or the Samsung 8 but the Verizon Rep talked me into the LG. A little cheaper and they claimed better. Most of the staff in the store were using he LG ThinQ. Only a week but so far so good. Nest year Spring and LG are planning on pushing out a new 5 G phone and network.
  9. Most of the marina's from Barnegat to Toms River will put you in in early April and pull up until Mid December. I know of one in Waretown that will pull you later than that as long as they are not Frozen in and will put you in as early as you want provided no ice. Have you called any to check on their scheduling?
  10. Community in Tom's River is not much better.
  11. Sounds like the zone valves are sticking open.
  12. My lawn is approximately 10,000 sq feet in total. The line that is used for my system is one inch. I have nine zones, 3 zones do the beds and 7 for the lawn. For 10,000 sq ft. you would not be able to run one zone. I would say that 3/4 to one inch would be fine. The copper line running from my meter to the sprinkler system is 3/4 inch. I would not use 1/2, you probably would need to run the system longer to put down that same amount of water a 3/4 or one inch line would put down. Stay with good heads. Hunter are probably the best ones and the ones used by most sprinkler system companies. The 1/2 line is fine for a drip system. Also The line that gets buried usually has a thicker wall than what they use for drip systems so be sure you select the correct line. I realize you are doing this yourself but if you call in an installer, they will be in and out in a half day. Plus unless you are digging the trench by hand you will need to rent a ditch witch.
  13. Yes it is that bad. You have not lived until you walk into a men's room and here someone texting while they are sitting in the stall.
