  • Can any kind of smoke/heat detector be set off buy covering it ?

    I recently moved to a new building and asked the landlord if i could vape in the room. He told me it could set off the smoke alarm. I'm thinking about covering the smoke detectors with plastic bags and some tape, but I just wanna make sure it won't be set off by covering it. Thanks!

    Recently a new roommate moved in, and brought a roach problem with her. Within a few days of moving in we started seeing them in the bedroom hallway and in the bathroom. We've bombed the house twice, lined everything with boric acid, and sprayed. They aren't exactly going strong, Maybe seeing one or two per day, but they are definitely still kicking. Yesterday was the real kicker for me. Woke up and went to make coffee. There was a roach crawling in the coffee maker. It wound up on the curb and some unsuspecting soul has picked it a seemingly perfect keurig. Bless them. Next was to go for a shower and one crawled across my had as I was opening up the curtain. I've spent a total of approximately 13 hours cleaning and bleaching my house within an inch of its life. Come home to night to find a roach munching on a single crumb in the middle of the floor. I'm at my wits end. The land lord is trying but is probably mores stressed than I am. Exterminator is a last resort, because we're all poor. Any tips beyond taking the new roommate and throwing a bonfire with her and all of her things?

  • Why might someone not buy an item at a garage sale even after the seller reduced the price twice for them?

    Say a person was having a garage sale and had an original oil painting by a known artist for $100. A shopper stops and first asks if they would take $75. The seller agrees. After looking around a few minutes, the shopper then asks if the painting could be bought for $50. The seller also agrees to this offer.... show more

  • If your house is totally on fire and you need to get out what type of fire extinguisher would be best?

    Best answer: It's possible to use a type ABC extinguish on any normal type of fire (other than burning metals like magnesium). If it's your only hope of escape, you can use a 2- 5- or even 10-pound extinguisher to "punch a hole" in some part of the fire to make your escape. Unfortunately, you have no way of... show more
    Best answer: It's possible to use a type ABC extinguish on any normal type of fire (other than burning metals like magnesium). If it's your only hope of escape, you can use a 2- 5- or even 10-pound extinguisher to "punch a hole" in some part of the fire to make your escape. Unfortunately, you have no way of knowing what's beyond that, unless your escape goes directly outside. Also, you may still be severely injured by smoke and heat, even if you're not involved directly in the flames.

    However, for what it's worth: pull the pin, aim the hose/nozzle at the base of the fire, squeeze the lever and sweep the stream of extinguisher powder/liquid/gas across and then along your chosen path. Consider taking another one with you, in case the first one runs out or you get trapped again.

    Of course, your building should be designed to minimize the risk that you will EVER be trapped in a situation where you only have one exit and it can be blocked by a random fire.

  • What can be done to prevent flies/maggots in garbage?

    Best answer: Unfortunately, the flies and maggots are simply doing the job nature intended. The problem usually starts indoors, and if you have one fly, you'll have hundreds of eggs laid in your garbage, and between that and your outdoor bin (which becomes an incubator), you have a breeding ground. Now, that doesn't... show more
    Best answer: Unfortunately, the flies and maggots are simply doing the job nature intended. The problem usually starts indoors, and if you have one fly, you'll have hundreds of eggs laid in your garbage, and between that and your outdoor bin (which becomes an incubator), you have a breeding ground. Now, that doesn't mean you can't keep the situation "contained," so to speak. I live out in farm country and with three free-range cats, my doors (or at least the kitty door) is always open and any scrap of left-over food is like a free buffet. And, this hot summer we've had has created the perfect conditions for flies, but my fly and maggot issues in my waste can and trash bin have been minimal.

    Below is a link outlining several ways to help keep flies at bay. Maggots, however, are a different story and the ONLY way to get rid of the little beasts is dousing them with scalding water (and yes, that rustling you hear is maggots). Whenever you can, pour some scalding water in the bin lid and in the bin itself (be careful, plastic bags can melt) enough so that you're killing maggots, but not so much that the water is too much to empty.

    Meat will attract flies like blue bottles more than anything, and if you don't have a garbage disposal to get rid of kitchen waste, throw the scraps (finely minced up if need be) in the toilet and flush. Wrap meat by-products such as bones and fats in foil or plastic wrap before you dispose of it. The more you can take away their food source, the better. Also, if you can, get an additional indoor garbage can that you use for garbage that will attract flies. A smaller bin with a smaller bag can be more tightly bound than those larger bags which can leave plenty of room for flies to get in when in the bin.

    As for your bin, make sure the lid is tightly sealed. Bins that have "varmint-resistant" lids are superior, albeit a bit more expensive.

    I employ many of the methods outlined in the link and find them reasonably effective, some more than others, but then I also have manure and horse flies as well as your garden variety house and fruit flies. Go through them and decide which methods might work for you. Best of luck.
