Watch out for nesting Squirrels.

Working With Squirrel Removal in Atlanta

Squirrels are cute little creatures that seem to have it made as they run along the tree branches and leap from branch to branch, gathering nuts for the winter. The only problem with the furry little creatures is that they also like to take up residence in your attic, and they can do so very easily by prying themselves through the smallest of openings.

A crack in the eaves, vents in gables, even wire mesh can be opened by these industrious creatures, and soon you have the whole family living very comfortably at your expense.

When the squirrels get inside, they tend to scratch all of the time, and even the heaviest of sleepers have been known to be kept awake at night by their activity. They will scrape the walls and ceilings, and can be plenty annoying to everyone.

Squirrel and a NutSquirrels give birth to babies in the spring or in the fall, and in some cases during both times. Your attic is the perfect place for them to raise a family, and of course, that is why they came in the first place.

Squirrels are the major cause of electrical fires in homes simply because they like to chew on anything, and that includes your electrical wiring inside of the house.

If you have any PVC pipes running though your attic, they also enjoy chewing on them until suddenly, without warning you have a major leak in your ceiling. The squirrels urinate and defecate often and everywhere, which brings parasites and disease into your home.

Why You Should Have Fall Lawn Aeration and Maintenance Service

You’ll be helping your lawn stay healthy throughout the winter and into the summer, and you won’t have to worry about all of your leaves.

While you only need to have your lawn aerated once each year, you can have the lawn maintenance service come and take care of your leaves several times during the fall. If you have a top landscaping Roswell GA company comes out to do a fall leaf clean up regularly, you won’t have to worry about them ruining your lawn. You will have a nice, leaf-free yard all season long.

The wasted space of roads designed for peak-car use

[Via blogger cityhaul] “Georgia 400 construction, looking south toward Atlanta Financial Center, March 4, 1990.”

What an incredible photo this is. It shows the construction of Georgia highway 400 as it heads south into Atlanta’s Buckhead area and under a group of offices.

I was just talking this evening about the amount of land in the city used for car infrastructure. There are many roads that are built wide for peak-use car capacity. Lanes are stretched out so that they can accommodate the masses of cars that pass through at peak hours.

Think of all that space and how it goes underused and empty at off-peak times — meaning most of the hours in a day. And think of how wide it needs to be to channel cars versus trains, bikes or pedestrians, which all require less space per person.

Think of how much walkable city could be built in that massive land space taken up by the highway in the above photo.

School’s out this week so we’re taking a family staycation. Today we had a very long walk around Downtown and Sweet Auburn.

First we made a long trek to the state Capitol to see the museum there, not realizing before we set out that it was Columbus Day and thus closed. At least we got a nice look at some butterflies in the flowers of the well-tended grounds.

Then we walked up to Sweet Auburn to the Wheat Street Garden and the community garden next to it, strolling through and enjoying a look at the vegetables and flowers. And near the entrance, we saw a bouquet of crushed beer cans on the sidewalk. The combination of greatness and grit in the city is something that appeals to me.
