If insects are causing problems at your house, we may be able to help. Our guest will be Phil Nixon, extension entomologist at the University of Illinois. He’s been with us many times before to take questions on a wide range of pests, everything from ants and roaches to silverfish and centipedes: the common pests that cause problems in our homes and gardens. Sometimes the key is just trying to get along, but if it’s a bug you just can’t live with, Phil can tell you how to make it go away.
The topic will be home maintenance and our guest will be Scott Spies from the Spies Home Inspection Service. We feature this topic every month and invite your questions on everything from windows and siding to roofing and guttrs to attics and basements, just about anything that goes into the single-family home. If you’re thinking of making some changes or something needs to be repaired you are welcome to call.
