REAL ESTATE: HOME IMPROVEMENTS how you close your pool is almost more impor- tant than how you open or maintain it during the season.

Since so many home owners are away from their homes for days, weeks even months what happens when trouble strikes and they’re not here A PLAGUE OF PESTS! F rom the sounds of some of my neighbors you’d think it was the Chinese year of the Rat. Or more precisely, the vole. Close cousins to mice, these 3-5 inch rodents have become the bane of many an East End home- owner. First, because they are voracious, and target anything that grows from flowers and plants to small trees and shrubs. Second, they are prodigious breeders. A single mating pair can produce up to 100 more little voles a season! Living in underground bunkers with multiple chambers and tunnels they are very hard to eliminate.
