    Axoltol Gills!

    All my levels are fine and his gills aren't curled at all, they stick backwards mostly. I read that flowing water (from filters) stresses them out and causes their gills to curl forward. (axolotl.org forum)

    What is your favorite book? What book are you currently reading?

    IME, pushing books onto kids isn't really successful, but allowing them to find titles that they connect with and are interested in will have them immersed in hours. My 11 year old loves Rick Riordan's series, Harry Potter, Greek Mythology, and he did read Treasure Island and enjoy it.

    What is your favorite book? What book are you currently reading?

    Horns was written by Joe Hill, Stephen King's other son, along with some other horror novels. I thought the ending was a little rushed as well, and would have liked more of a background on Eve and the moth situation.

    Bombing For Bed Bugs With Tank In Room - Help

    *sigh* No, he couldn't just "get his own exterminator". He is legally blind, lives off of SSDI, and has Section 8 housing. He can't afford to feed himself half the time, much less pay out of pocket for an exterminator. He ended up having to borrow the money from an acquaintance, which took...

    Bombing For Bed Bugs With Tank In Room - Help

    If you do not indicate the presence or signs of bedbugs during your initial walk through when you sign your lease, in Texas, you can (and will) be charged for bedbug treatment. This is in my lease. My father was charged over $800 for bedbug treatment at a property in Dallas.

    Bombing For Bed Bugs With Tank In Room - Help

    If you are renting, look over your lease thoroughly. We had to sign a "bedbug addendum" that stated the tenants are responsible for reporting and also liable for treatment costs. I'm sorry you're in this situation; we've battled bedbugs before and they're the worst.
