Humanely dealing with pests this winter.

Kylie Klein Nixon Reporter from Homed

Have you ever had a pest problem? I used to have a pet rat. They are smart, affectionate, clever little things. I'd never want to cause one unnecessary pain or suffering, which is why we've chosen to manage pests in our home with traps.

I'd never want to cause one unnecessary pain or suffering, which is why we've chosen to manage pests in our home with traps. It's not ideal, but it's better - and safer - than poison. I've done a little research on humane, effective vermin control during the wet months, when they like to come in from the cold. Take a look:

Hi everyone,
I'm working on a travel story for Stuff about the things that have surprised returning Kiwis about New Zealand. If you have recently returned from overseas or know someone who has, it would be great to hear about the things that have stood out for you, for better or for worse. Whether it's to do with the weather, the cost of things, the public transport, the food, the housing, the people or something else entirely, we'd be keen to hear about it.

Your dog might be older (in human years) than you realise

Stacey Reporter from Stuff

Hi neighbours,

Think you know how old your dog is? Think again.

Multiplying by seven isn't accurate, a new study says. Researchers at the University of California San Diego School of Medicine and other leading health institutions across the country have now debunked that common belief.

Christchurch has not managed to get its recycling correct for a single day in the past nine weeks, leaving hundreds of tonnes needlessly being sent to landfill.

Council rubbish collectors have had to dump contaminated residential yellow bin waste every day since May 4, when recycling facility EcoCentral reopened after the coronavirus lockdown.

In that time 635 truckloads of recycling have had to be thrown away – almost half of what has been collected, or about 3175 tonnes. The problem, caused by people throwing non-recyclable waste into their yellow bins, has cost ratepayers about $635,000. Read more here.

Every day our animals wait eagerly to smell what hes been up to over the day. He prides himself on quality service at a good price and customer service however more and more I think he goes to work to check out all the cute animals out there. This weeks star client had a collection of cats...Patrick gravitated to the Burmeses and even worked out they came from the same breeder as our baby.
Every evening our family hear about all the 4 legged friends he has made and i even had a work colleague in my other job (ED Nurse) say "my sister has had Patrick out on a few jobs now, did you know they call him the dog whisperer. Oh and they're really happy with the work too"
It makes me remember all the times with EQC work the tradesmen repeatedly let out my animals and treated them with disrespect. Every animal lover would be glad to have Elusion care for both their pets and Electrical needs.
Feel free to phone for your free animal friendly quotes.
Shan, Patrick and Elusion team.
