Mosquito Systems

Our installation professionals will survey your surroundings to help locate and eliminate potential mosquito breeding spots. If you’d like to take preventive action, see our post Stop Mosquitoes From Breeding. The importance of such preventive measures can’t be emphasized enough. The female mosquito can simultaneously lay up to 300 eggs and produce up to 3,000 eggs a year. Each egg can develop into an adult mosquito in 10 to 14 days. Depending on the type of mosquito, all this can occur in as little as one ounce of water. When you do the math, you can see the potential for explosive population growth in a very short time and from even a very small source of stagnant water. More on this website @

Once you have explored your landscaping to look for stagnant water, we suggest you search again for anything you might have missed. What about your boat? Is there water in your life well left from your last fishing trip? Do you have bait buckets or other containers in the boat that might hold standing water or catch water if it rains? Also, look closely at boat covers for any folds that could hold water – and remember that mosquitoes can breed in even the tiniest pocket of water. Children’s toys are another common culprit. Wading pools and wagons are obvious sources, and you certainly want to dump those. Also, check riding toys for any compartments that could hold water. You may also find standing water in low spots of flexible sandbox covers. Other possible breeding opportunities include hollow chain link or plastic fence posts that aren’t capped; dripping window air conditioning units; outdoor grills; plants that hold water, such as bamboo; plastic sheeting used in gardens to prevent weeds. All of these sources can and should be eliminated.

If you control garden weeds with plastic sheeting, replace it with landscape cloth that allows water to drain through it. Many low spots can be filled with sand or rocks so that the area will drain. When you consider how quickly mosquitoes can multiply, it’s worth checking the yard now and then, and it only takes a few minutes. It won’t even seem like a chore if you keep an eye out while you take a stroll with your morning coffee.

Using a toilet plunger

A toilet plunger (a ball or cup-type plunger) is designed specifically for unclogging toilets. The rounded lower surface nests tightly in the bowl, giving the plunger great suction action to dislodge the blockage. With the plunger in place, push down gently, and then pull up quickly to create suction that pulls the blockage back a bit and dislodges it.
Using a toilet plunger (as opposed to a sink-type plunger) keeps you from splashing as much water around because the ball of the plunger covers the entire hole. If all you have on hand is a small, sink-type plunger, try using it — it can’t hurt, and it just may work. More here at plumber San Antonio
Choosing a New Toilet
Today’s toilets are better looking and more efficient than ones of years past, because they use a mere 1.6 gallons of water per flush, compared to 3 to 5 gallons. You can find two basic styles of toilets: a one-piece unit with a combined bowl and tank, and a two-piece unit with a separate water tank and bowl. Two-piece units are more used and cost less than one-piece toilets.
The most used flush assembly is a gravity-fed flush toilet that uses the force of gravity and a siphoning, pull-through action to discharge the toilet bowl. Another toilet kind, a pressure-assisted toilet, relies on either water pumps or compressed air to boost the flushing toilet power. Our choice for a budding do-it-yourself plumber is the two-piece gravity-assisted toilet.
Most toilets are designed with a standard 12-inch rough-in dimension, which means that it’s located 12 inches from the wall. You can also find toilets with 10-inch or 14-inch rough-in dimensions.
If you’re replacing a toilet with a wall-hung tank, it will have a rough-in dimension of 14 inches. If this is the case, you can install a toilet designed for a 12-inch rough-in, but it’ll end up a couple inches from the back wall. Place a short piece of 2x lumber on the wall behind the tank to give support to the tank.
If your old toilet has a 10-inch rough-in dimension, you can purchase a new toilet with this dimension — you may have to special order it, however.
Before you begin this project, make arrangements for using another toilet. If your household has only one toilet, this may be the most important part of the job! Find a friendly neighbor (who is indebted to you) and prevail on his hospitality. Of course, if you have another toilet in the house, you’re in good shape.
You’ll probably find the bathroom easier to work in if you remove any extra doodads or decorations. Remove towels, baskets — whatever’s in the room — so that the toilet is free and clear to work on.

Oder Custom Printed T Shirts

Follow these simple tips when ordering your custom screen printed t-shirts for a quicker and more trouble free experience.

The first thing to be discussed is the difference between screen printing and digital garment printing. In general screen printing is a more labor intensive process than digital printing and requires color separations and individual screens to be made for each color in the design. Digital garment printing on the other hand is simply a shirt printed in a printer much like the paper printer that most of us use everyday to print photos or documents. t shirt printing

The subject of a different article, but for now suffice it to say that digital garment prints work better on white or light colored shirts and are better suited to short run orders.

Artwork is a prime factor in getting your shirts printed in a timely manner. The better the artwork, the better the finished product. I’m sure you have heard the old adage “Junk in, Junk out”, well, this is truly the case when it comes to screen printing. Artwork falls into two basic groups depending on what software program produced it or where it came from.The first group I will talk about are Raster images. Raster images will have file extensions such as .bmp, .jpg ,.tif, or .psd and are pixel maps which are dependent on resolution (dots per inch ) to maintain clarity. The higher the dpi, the clearer the image will be. While Raster images are great for digital printing, they can be problematic for screen printing in that file sizes are typically large and color separations can be more difficult, not to mention the pix-elation that occurs when up sizing images. If a Raster image is the only option that you have, be sure that it is sized appropriately for screen printing and in a high resolution (at least 300 dpi original resolution) before sending to avoid additional art charges or unnecessary delays.

The second group is called vector images. Vector images are preferred by screen printers due to their flexibility in resizing without degradation, smaller file sizes and ease of color separations. Typical file extensions for vector images are .ai, .eps and .cdr. Vector images use point coordinates and mathematical equations to define elements in an image as opposed to pixels and can therefore be re-sized without discrimination. Vector images are your best bet for getting a fast turnaround and avoiding additional art charges when ordering your custom t-shirts printing.

Color selection is also something to be considered ahead of time to help expedite your order. Your printer will need to know the pantone colors that you would like to be used in your t-shirts printing.custom t shirts

Shirt Selection can be confusing, but basically there are two main fabric weight classes to select from, 5.6 oz or 6.1 oz. Beyond that style will need to be decided, Ladies or Men’s, short sleeve or long sleeve, pockets or not, scoop neck v-neck or regular, as well as shirt color. It will save much time if all of this is decided ahead of time, and whether you purchase your T-shirts from our company or not, please feel free to shop and make selections with our online Catalog If your custom t-shirts printing order includes any individualization such as names or numbers prepare a list displaying properly spelled names, numbers, and sizes to help avoid confusion.
