  • Is it ok to use a 2000 PSI Power Washer to get rid of a large hornet's nest in a tree?

    I have a large hornet nest in a tree and I was just wondering if I use my power washer to get rid of the nest. Would it also kill all of the hornets?

  • I dropped my phone in the crack between my wall and my bed what do I do?

    Best answer: Options (in no particular order): Tear down that wall. Burn the bed, I mean how do we sleep while our beds are burning? Drop some more stuff into the crack so you don't have to see your phone. That will make it easier to forget about your clumsiness. Push the wall a bit to the left so you can get the phone... show more
    Best answer: Options (in no particular order):

    Tear down that wall.

    Burn the bed, I mean how do we sleep while our beds are burning?

    Drop some more stuff into the crack so you don't have to see your phone.
    That will make it easier to forget about your clumsiness.

    Push the wall a bit to the left so you can get the phone out of the crack.

    Use a selfie stick.

    Rent a fishing rod and try to ... nah.

    Put some hot glue on a shish kebab skewer or any other thin wooden thing, stick it to the phone and pull it out.

    Is the bed screwed to the floor or the wall?
    Then buy a new phone.

  • Am I allowed to mow my lawn after 9 am?

    I started to mow my lawn, and the neighbor which has 2 pit bulls in the backyard at all hours and bark at me the whole time I mow my lawn, or whenever they see anybody or anything move they bark at it. The neighbor came out and started yelling at me, so I turned off the lawn mower so I could hear what he was saying. He started saying that I couldn't mow the lawn until 11, and that it agitates his dogs early in the morning. I told him, that It's the coolest part of the day and the best time to mow it as it's suppose to get in the high 90's today, I want to get it over with. He continued to go on about how the noise ordinance is 11 am on weekends. I didn't want to deal with it and kind of said whatever and went inside. But I was always sure it was 8 am on weekdays 9 am on weekends is when people are allowed to start making noise such as power tools, lawn mowers, generators, etc. You should see this guy's lawn, think he has mowed it once this season so far, its been well over a month since his last one and it's getting long

  • Is it stupid to grow lettuce and tomatoes on my balcony?

    Best answer: Tomatoes are perfect for a balcony, especially cherry/grape tomatoes. I wouldn't grow lettuce, simply because it's so cheap and readily available. If you do want to grow lettuce, consider growing a lettuce you might not be able to get at the grocery store, like leaf lettuce.

  • What should I do about an old push lawnmower that needs a new wheel?

    Best answer: First off, you said the mower is self-propelled. Is the broken wheel one of the drive wheels? If so, that complicates removal and finding a replacement. If the wheel is just a free-spinning type, you need to get that bolt loose. There's no special magic that the repair person can do. You need the correct... show more
    Best answer: First off, you said the mower is self-propelled. Is the broken wheel one of the drive wheels? If so, that complicates removal and finding a replacement. If the wheel is just a free-spinning type, you need to get that bolt loose. There's no special magic that the repair person can do. You need the correct sized wrench...preferably a 6-point socket and a long handle. Slip a pipe over the handle to extend the leverage. Then apply some Liquid Wrench to the threads and go at it. Heat the nut with a propane torch if that doesn't work. The one thing to be careful of is applying too much force. If you can see the threads going into or through the nut, keep an eye on it. If the wrench moves but the threads don't, you're in danger of snapping the bolt.

    I'm a firm believer in fixing broken stuff. My lawn tractor is 27 yrs old and I've made a lot of repairs along the way...but there eventually comes a time. Frankly, if you can't make this repair yourself on the cheap, it's probably time for a new mower.

  • There is a nest of raccoon's in my garage. What should I do?

    Best answer: Leave them alone and contact a wild life trapper. These creatures may look cute, but they are vicious and carry some diseases like Rabies, Leptospirosis, raccoon roundworm, and giardiasis. All of these can effect humans. Also, most states regulate where trapped animals can be released. Had some in my attic one... show more

Also, most states regulate where trapped animals can be released. Had some in my attic one year and learned A LOT in having them removed. Do not bother with Animal control, they only deal with domestic animals, not wild life.

  • Why do tenants switch bathtub faucet?

    Why do tenants switch bathtub faucet?

    My family rents out our beach house. We have two bathrooms in the house, both with the same bathtub set-up.

    My family rents out our beach house. We have two bathrooms in the house, both with the same bathtub set-up. However, in one bath room only, our tenants keep changing the faucet in the bathtub so the handle is switched. This is the incorrect way to have the handle, and it is not changed in the main bathroom, only the one that is connected to a room. My family has been very confused because almost every tenant has changed the bathtub handle, and to do this you need an allen wrench, which means that somehow it is in the possession of everyone that rents our house. Is there any reason why someone would do this? Even if someone thought it was the wrong way to have the handle (they thought hot and cold should be switched), why would they feel the urge to change it, and not just leave it there as the vacation would only be at most a week. And why would they change it in only one bathroom? I do not know if this is something that happens normally. I know this is an odd question, but if you have had a similar experience or any ideas on why people do this, it would be appreciated if you could share your thoughts. Attached is a picture of the handle design.
