Buildings and Grounds – May, 2018

by Linda Pietrzak
Sometimes it takes a while for the obvious fix to a problem evades us all. The Kitchen Cabinet and Building and Grounds have been battling ants on the kitchen counters for a year or so. We have gone through boxes of Terro ant bait. For those of you who are not familiar with Terro, it is a non-toxic ant bait that lures ants to it and then they take the bait back to the nest and the ants all die.

The problem we just realized is that the bail “lures the ants to it.” So, we have been luring the ants to the kitchen counter!! We have relocated the Terro to a place where the ants will not be lured to the counter top. Hopefully the new location will work much better and the ants will not be attracted to the counter tops. Thank you Shelah for thinking of this great idea.

If you have occasion to take the trash out to the trash enclosure at the back of the church property you will surely have noticed how rickety the gates have become. That’s what happens after a few decades. Building and Grounds under the guidance and construction skills of Mike Sixbey is repairing the gates of the trash enclosure and other exterior enclosures. It is a job that has long been needed. Be sure and thank him and all volunteers for all their hard work. Contact Linda Pietrzak: linda.w.pietrzak@gmail.com
