Speaking of critters, my winter renters have officially moved in last week (mice). My current pest management company is organic, but I'm thinking I'm gonna take off my eco-sensitivities due to the high termite infestation in my neighborhood as well as the loud mice munching that I heard last night. Ick Factor x 1000.

DF...can I leverage your professional expertise. How would you define and/or ferret out a good PM company? This company (http://www.bigginsexterminating.com) has been in business for quite awhile, seems to use good product, and has good reviews on yelp & CL. However, I've been burned by group recommendations before (home renovations with a CL contractor) so wanted some peer expertise too. Can you help...it is mucho appreciated.

I def read that as biggin sex term...


Totally can cram the older V12 into an E36. Might need to move some stuff but it's doable for sure. Problem is, even the awesome one in the E32 750iL doesn't make much power. And it is heavy. Basically two M50s in a V formation.


Sorry forgot to be helpful. Get like 5 cats and the mice problem will go away...

Unless you happen to get yourself some lazy cats, like mine. I had mice when I was living in NYC. My cat throught it was awesome fun for like 2 months, but then got bored and stopped paying attention to them...

Yeah, I wonder if they'd eat them if they weren't getting food. Cats pretty much kill for sport, usually take hours slowly killing their prey, have fun doing it, and never actually consume what they catch. Evil little fur-balls...

I had a cat in my apartment in VA. When I moved to CA I gave them to my parents on a big ass vineyard in the middle of nowhere. Now he kills mice and birds all the time, and rarely eats inside. Quite the transformation. Jen, if you like, you can borrow my mouser cat for a few weeks. I'm sure he wouldn't mind.

Worlds oldest profession immediately came to my juvenile mind.....

Bad boy.
Bad Boy.
Bad boy.

We had a cat and on the rare occasion where he got off his lazy butt and actually caught something, he would tease it until it died and then deposit it on our bed as a "gift" for us when we woke up in the morning. A couple of times the palmetto bug he caught was just playing possum and would start running around once he left it on the bed. The wife needless to say is not a big fan of palmetto bugs.

This passed me on my way to school today. I have a weak spot for M5's. Just the engine sound when he floored it to pass..

Okay. back to work now.

Ohhh and to the person who decided it would be okay to make the main road through Weston Mass (Rt 117) a one lane road for 2 miles while you rip it up and pave it. You're dumb. Me the other cars that sit in the traffic for 30 minutes to move 2 miles think so.

Thanks all....I just hate mice. I've caught 2 in 3 days (I was awake most of the night listening to them scratch the walls and afraid they would run over my head), those little suckers reproduce every month, and getting a pet is not an option until I switch jobs. I'm a dog person myself...plus, the POs of my house had so many cats (and I had to remove the animal smells and resultant mold to the tune of $25k) I'm skittish about another cat in the house. So it's off to the professionals I go.

If he decides he wants a coupe I saw a hella clean 328is in Waynesboro for $4500. Dark blue and dove with 152k, looked immaculate.
