Gross, but good to know. Tick Removal: A nurse discovered a safe, easy way to remove ticks where they automatically withdraw themselves when you follow her simple instructions. I had a pediatrician tell me what she believes is the best way to remove a tick. Apply a glob of liquid soap to a cotton ball. Cover the tickwith the soap-soaked cotton ball and swab it for a few seconds (15-20); the tick will come out on its own and be stuck to the cotton ball when you lift it away. Please pass on.

BAT HOUSE: Why build a house to attract bats to your backyard? For starters, a small bat can capture up to 1,000 mosquitos in just one hour.  I happen to love bats. Once, I found an injured one, befriended it while I nursed it back to health, and then freed it when it was well enough to return to nature. They are not creepy or anything to fear.
