Fire Ants

October and March are the 2 months to put out fire ant baits in your yards.  It is recommended that you alternate putting Amdro and Extinguish.  If everyone would do this during these two designated months, there would no longer be fire ants in our neighborhood!

Safety Reminders

Reminders from our safety liaison:

* Record serial numbers of all firearms or anything of value that you have. 

* Take pictures of your jewelry. 
* Keep these lists at a place other than your residence, i.e.:  office, relative’s homes, etc. 

* Take a few minutes and protect yourself.  SET YOUR ALARMS, even if going out for “a few minutes”.

* Lock your car doors.

NOTE:  Many items are stolen and subsequently recovered by law enforcement but are not able to be traced and returned because the victim could not provide identifying information.
