Mole Control

first_imgThe phones are ringing at local University of Georgia Cooperative Extension offices this time of year as homeowners puzzle over which critters are digging up their yards. There are many possibilities for what animals may be involved, so homeowners can be on the lookout for clues to figure out what the culprit might be based on the size of the holes, associated damage and where the holes are located.More often than not, the smaller, four-legged excavators are in the rodent family. If the damage is more extensive than just a few holes, there may be larger mammals involved, such as armadillos or wild hogs. Ultimately, to get to the bottom of the hole problem, you might need to set up a trail camera to catch the animal in the act. Once the animal is identified, then we can recommend a specific control option. The rodent family includes at least a dozen possibilities for Georgia. Some of the more common rodents we get calls about include voles, chipmunks, squirrels and woodchucks (also known as groundhogs). Moles are also very common, but are technically not rodents.The size of the hole or burrow usually correlates with the size of the animal. Live traps and/or shooting are the most effective means for dealing with larger rodents and armadillos. The size of the animal you are targeting will determine the size of the trap.Moles are insectivores and are more closely related to shrews and bats. In the fall, there is a lot of mole activity because white grubs are starting to hatch out near the soil surface. This is one of the mole’s favorite snacks. These white grubs are frequently found in lawns and are the result of Japanese beetles and other beetle species laying their eggs this past summer. The grubs feed on the roots of grass and can occasionally cause damage to a lawn. Moles tunneling under the lawn can be a symptom of a grub problem, especially in yards that are consistently irrigated. Knowing that the food source involves grubs helps you deduce that moles are involved. If white grubs are found to be a problem in the lawn (around 10-20 per square foot of sod), then insecticide treatments are justified to avoid root damage from the grubs. Early fall is the best time to treat for grubs. Treating for grubs may temporarily reduce this food source for the moles, but it can increase their digging activity in search of food. This might result in more damage to the lawn.Because moles eat insects, grubs and worms, there is really not a good way to bait them into a trap and poison baits are seldom effective. Moles live and travel in underground tunnels just below the soil surface. Generally, only one mole lives in each burrow. However, you may have a network of underground runways that house individual moles. Most mole burrows average about 5 to 8 inches beneath the surface.          Packing the soil with a roller or reducing soil moisture from frequent irrigation may reduce a lawn’s attractiveness to moles. Packing may even kill moles if done early in the morning or late evening when they are most active.No chemical products have been shown to be effective at repelling moles. Fumigants containing aluminum phosphide or gas cartridges are labeled for controlling moles, however, exact placement of fumigants in the mole’s deeper burrows is required to be effective. Home remedies have not been proven effective at controlling moles.Trapping is the most effective and practical method of getting rid of moles. There are several mole traps on the market that are specifically designed for killing moles with spring-loaded mechanisms. The traps should be placed in straight runways that show fresh signs of mole activity. Take care not to disturb any part of the mole’s runway tunnel except where the trap is being inserted. Another option is to bury a large coffee can or wide-mouth jar in the mole’s tunnel to create a pit trap and cover the top of the burrow with a board. The moles will fall into the pit trap and be captured alive using this method. For more information on trapping techniques used for moles and other pests, see the Internet Center for Wildlife Damage Management website at icwdm.org/species.last_img read more

Honduras: Air Force authorized to down suspected drug planes

first_img TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras – Honduras’ Congress has passed a law authorizing the Air Force to shoot down unidentified planes suspected of carrying drugs over the Central American country, legislators said. The legislature voted overwhelmingly on the night of Jan. 17 to pass the “Air Space Protection Law” even though Honduras is a signatory of an international treaty that forbids downing of civilian aircraft, Congressional Vice President Marvin Ponce said. Ponce said the law authorizes planes to be shot down if they fail to file flight plans or abide by civil aviation rules. Defense Minister Marlon Pascua, in an interview with the newspaper La Tribuna, said Honduran authorities have cut the movement of drugs through its territory by 74% since mid-2010. [AFP (Honduras), 18/01/2014; El Heraldo (Honduras), 19/01/2014; La Tribuna (Honduras), 18/01/2014] By Dialogo January 21, 2014last_img read more


Uruguayan Air Force Conducts Exercises to Counter Transnational Crime

first_imgOn May 18th, the High Command sent instructions via the Aerial Operations Center to operate select reconnaissance flights in precise locations, which were given using coordinates. The operation was meant to disrupt the plan that the crews already had in place. The exercise tested the unit’s youngest pilots, who received logistical support by the Air Base Squadron from the 3rd Air Brigade. The National Aerial Police secured the airport. By Dialogo June 07, 2016 Narco-traffickers exploit Uruguay Uruguay’s Air Force (FAU) recently deployed 25 pilots and another 15 service members to the country’s northern region to search for illegal landing strips used by drug traffickers. The training strengthens airspace security, the country’s fight against drug trafficking, and the air squadron’s operational capacities. In addition to participating in aircraft interception operations, the 7th Air Squadron also conducts transfers of personnel, rescues, and humanitarian aid, as it depends on more than 50 aviators from all ranks with various levels of experience and training. “Since flight is our vocation and expectations center on a professional level, we must provide our crews clear ways to satisfactorily complete assignments that are not planned and in which one has to adjust and adapt,” Major Ocampo stated. Pilots log 50 hours of flight “What has been planned are territorial deployments in different parts of the country, spread out in such a way that the entire country is covered in order to protect Uruguayan airspace,” Major Ocampo explained. “Even beyond having professional training sessions, the fortification of each one of the squadron’s members is very important. Experience is very valuable, and the main thing is for them to be able to turn that experience onto those who come after them as well as on missions.” Pilots and navigators from the 7th Air Squadron (Observation and Liaison), which belongs to the FAU’s 3rd Air Brigade, departed in four Cessna C-206 H Stationair airplanes and a Beechcraft UB-55 Baron aircraft on May 17th toward Melo, the department capital of Cerro Largo, near the border with Brazil. The main objective of the deployment, which concluded on May 20th, was to look for landing strips, observe the dry border, control the air space, and evaluate the flight squadron’s capabilities – both in terms of crews’ operational plans and logistical support in an irregular environment, according to an FAU press release. center_img During night maneuvers, they used “beacons that ran on photo cells,” which lit up at night after being charged with sunlight. “One of the aims of the night flights is to be up to date in order to support the interception of illegal aircraft when so ordered by higher ups,” Major Ocampo explained. “This deployment is part of the training that a flight crew that flies in this squadron must have. The pilots are equipped with practice and training in how to combat drug trafficking and transnational crime organizations. One of our main missions is to provide support to organizations which are fully engaged in the fight against crime and drug trafficking.” “The Uruguayan officers have strengthened their ties of cooperation and teamwork, putting the accomplishment of their missions before all else,” Major Ocampo stated. One hundred thirty-five kilograms of cocaine were seized in Uruguay from January to May of this year, following 1.5 tons seized in 2013 compared to just 10 kilograms of the drug being confiscated in 1991, the newspaper El Observador reported . Conversely, the International Narcotics Control Board has reported Uruguay has the third highest rate of cocaine consumption in South America, bested only by Chile and Argentina. The next training sessions, which are planned a year in advance, will be held in September and November. “The primary challenges that the 7th Air Squadron’s members are facing are being able to complete missions satisfactorily, especially those that remove them from normal operational environments, and being able to overcome weather while operating safely,” Aviator Major Juan Ocampo, Commander of the 7th Air Squadron, told Diálogo. Uruguay is not a country that produces important narcotics, according to the U.S. government. However, international narcotrafficking groups take advantage of the country’s porous borders with Brazil and Argentina. Traffickers use the Uruguayan capital of Montevideo as a hub to transport cocaine that’s produced in the Andes, the website Espectador reported on March 2nd. During the training, in which pilots logged 50 hours in the air, the Uruguayan service members conducted day and night reconnaissance as well as night landings in unusual settings such as mountains, forests, and other areas that have been hard to reach for authorities in the fight against transnational threats. last_img read more


Setting 2016 goals for your Voice of the Member program

first_imgEach fall, Member Loyalty Group receives numerous inquiries as credit unions plan for the next year and develop new goals for their Voice of the Member programs. With more than 2.1 million member surveys collected over the past eight years for over 80 participating credit unions, we’ve learned a lot about what drives loyalty and how to create consistently great experiences for your members.Our credit union participants utilize a consistent Net Promoter Score® methodology, which allows us to publish a quarterly benchmark for the industry. Over the past 7 years, the overall average change in Net Promoter Score has been +1.3 points. When considering credit unions that improved their score, the average change has been +5 points. However, not all credit unions improve their score. In fact the average decrease seen in scores has been – 3.8 points. A realistic goal for your credit union’s program depends on several factors, including the level of your current score.
Dramatic Gains More Difficult at Higher LevelsIn terms of estimating score movement for 2016, it is important to note that higher scoring organizations tend to move the score more slowly and may have to work diligently just to keep their scores at lofty levels. Lower scoring organizations tend to move the score more rapidly. This is due to the way NPS is calculated. Lower scoring organizations generally have a larger percentage of Detractors, which when converted to Promoters, has a doubling effect on the NPS (e.g., converting 5% Detractors to Promoters, yields a 10 point increase to NPS). Higher scoring organizations tend to have a low percentage of Detractors, therefore not as much opportunity for Promoter conversion.The chart below illustrates the decreasing improvements that are seen when the NPS score increases.NPS Movement Among MLG Credit UnionsBig Changes Can Have a Big ImpactEven the best performing credit unions have also seen score declines, especially after a merger, system conversion, branch closure or other “big” change. We recommend that you be realistic about loyalty/service measurement goal setting when large changes are on the horizon. You may want to consider setting a goal which keeps your score level or even factor in a temporary decrease at those times. In the chart below, the green line demonstrates the dramatic impact that a merger can have on an organization’s NPS and the gradual “rebound” period that follows. The other organizations show more moderate dips and faster rebounds.Download your complimentary copy of the new guide today!Learn more about setting realistic goals for your credit union’s Net Promoter Score by downloading your complimentary copy of our new guide for 2016.You can also learn more about Member Loyalty Group’s Voice of the Member programs by visiting www.memberloyaltygroup.com or contacting us at info@memberloyaltygroup.com.Net Promoter, Net Promoter Score, and NPS are trademarks of Satmetrix Systems, Inc., Bain & Company, Inc., and Fred Reichheld. 23SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Jake Foreman Before joining Member Loyalty Group, Jake served as Member Experience Analyst for Idaho Central Credit Union where he managed their Net Promoter program.

7 lessons I’ve learned from talking to credit unions this year

first_imgWe’ve had a truly amazing year at FI GROW. From our rebranding in April and adding some amazing new team members, we are thrilled with all we have accomplished. And we wanted to take some time to share 10 lessons we’ve learned from working with credit unions this year. Most Marketers Don’t Understand What We Do –Our work with clients varies from high level strategic planning and training all the way down to social media implementation and content curation. So in many ways we do work that moves from CMO levels of planning and strategy all the way down to marketing associate daily or weekly tactical steps. Both are incredible valuable in any marketing department. But often middle level managers forget the strategic side of things as they are overwhelmed by the day-to-day of their jobs. It’s important to pause at least monthly and dedicate time to look back, so you can more effectively then continue to look forward.Marketers are Still Not Empowered to Make Decisions –Which is mind-boggling if you really think about it. But we continue to see marketers stifled by SVPs or CEO who are micro-managing them at every turn. At some point if you hire competent smart people you have to trust them and just let them do their job.Risk Taking is All Too Often Non-Existent –Don’t take this the wrong way, but believe it or not, everything we try is NOT a resounding success. And that’s OK! Actually, sometimes failure is essential to really learning the best way to do something. So even if you aren’t sure about what results might happen, be honest about the risks, protect your brand and member experience, manage internal expectations and then GO FOR IT!!Budgets are WAY Too Tight for Digital Success –It continues to surprise me that even in 2018 we are still fighting for every penny of budget in the digital space. Guys… the big banks and FinTech companies are killing you on spending. Optimize your efforts for local search and get busy with some paid ads to support your other online efforts! And don’t shoot the messenger… but spending $1k a month just isn’t going to cut it.Senior Leaders Want to Talk Strategy, And Some Marketers Don’t Get That –We are mentioning this again because it’s very important that you communicate big-picture effectively in order to demonstrate the need for budget. And when marketers focus on vanity metrics like clicks, engagement and impressions senior managers just don’t see value. Focus on tying those tactical efforts and successes to new loans and member growth and then report on those numbers to your CEOs and Board of Directors. This will be much more valuable for everyone involved.Some CUs and Community Banks Seem Stuck in their Niche –Over the last few months we’ve had a number of clients ask us to help them with coordination of website redesigns. And we are finding that they are very reluctant to trust web design agencies who don’t have huge amounts of experience with other Financial Institutions. While this is understandable, we continue to push them to think outside that FI box as so much innovation happens when you work with people who come at things from new perspectives. Again, sometimes taking risks and trying agencies with great references from a multitude of industries might serve your FI well in the long run.Personalizing Experience Isn’t Happening –When you have the ability to customize your customer’s digital experience based on their recent activity or indicated areas of interest, this is where the magic happens. But when marketers are pulled in a thousand directions on a daily basis and are constantly asked to fill in the blanks on other tasks, being able to focus on digital experience can be tricky. Ideally your FI should work toward having a staff member dedicated to ensuring a high quality customer experience, and this simple must include personalized content online and in your mobile app. 2SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Meredith Olmstead Meredith Olmstead is the CEO and Founder of FI GROW Solutions, which provides Digital Marketing & Sales services to Community Financial Institutions. With experience working with FIs in markets of … Web: www.figrow.com Details BONUS FIs Are Not Treating Their Websites as Assets –In all likelihood your FI’s website will receive more traffic than all of your brick-and-mortar locations combined. So, we consistently push marketing departments to demand that budgets for those digital branches need to reflect this traffic and be larger and categorized appropriately.last_img read more


Remote work: Advice from the location independent

first_imgMany who know me from around credit union land know I’m a bit of a wanderlust. A few years back we made the decision to shut down our offices at CUInsight.com and become a fully remote workforce. There were also selfish reasons for this decision that had nothing to do with the bottomline. I wanted to be a digital nomad (which I did for a time) or the term I now prefer, location independent. Over the past few years I’ve been on partner calls at 4:00am while living in Indonesia, Jill and I spent the summer both working remotely from Spain while running our businesses like we were at our home in West Hartford, CT, I’ve recorded podcasts on the Indian Ocean, and scrambled to find good wifi in a coffee shop before going off to dive the Great Barrier Reef. Strong wifi has been the life line to my career/business while traversing the globe. I’ve been able to call my “office” many beautiful locations around the world and most of the time the people on the other end of the call, Skype or Zoom had no idea I wasn’t in a traditional office.Today, my Delta app is empty and like many of you I am at home social distancing for the foreseeable future. Here are some tips I’ve picked up along the way to share with those of you who are working remotely for the first time due to the coronavirus (COVID-19):Consistency and distractionsBlocking your time and having a schedule to follow is the most important thing in my opinion. The distractions are different outside the office. Taking five minutes to move the laundry from to the dryer turns into 35 minutes because of a detour to see what’s happening on CNN, making a snack, talking to a family member about their day. The list goes on of potential distractions. Those “five minutes” add up and at the end of the day you feel like you were extremely busy but wonder why you didn’t get much done.Create a workspaceIf you can, create a workspace where you can shut the door. When the door is closed you’re not home. You’re at the office. Jill and I are both working from home. We both work in credit unions so it’s easy to get in conversations throughout the day about who just talked to who or what exciting project we’re working on. We’ve had to learn social distancing before it was cool. Jill is in one part of the house and I’m in the other. We meet in the kitchen and have a delightful lunch and then go back to our corners of the house.Stay connectedThe walls can start to close in on you. Many of us who work from home normally would head to a Starbucks or Panera Bread just to be around other humans. We shouldn’t do that today. Keep social distancing for the greater good. Instead have regular calls or facetime with colleagues, mentors or others who are working remotely as well. Even for an introvert like me, human interaction is an important thing for our sanity. Shut it downIt’s easy to let work creep into your family time. I know this happens to all of us with our emails/calendars/slack on our phones. I’m an early bird. I’ll start working on something as soon as I open my eyes. It’s easy to walk back to the open laptop on the desk in the evening and check an email or knock something out quickly. Don’t. It can wait (most of the time). Set your office hours and stick to them. The same way you don’t want to let your home life take over your work day, don’t let your work day spill into your home life.I could go on but this is a good start. The beauty of working remotely is the flexibility. And in uncertain times where things are changing by the hour having a little flexibility in your life is something to be grateful for. If I can help your transition to remote work in any way, feel free to reach out to me at rsmith@cuinsight.com or @CUInsight on Twitter and I can share more of the tools, tricks and life hacks I’ve learned and practice. 26SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Randall Smith Randall Smith is the co-founder of CUInsight.com, the host of The CUInsight Experience podcast, and a bit of a wanderlust.As one of the co-founders of CUInsight.com he … Web: www.CUInsight.com Detailslast_img read more

Investors worth $12trn call on G7 to back long-term carbon reduction targets

first_imgThe letter came ahead of the G7 meeting of finance ministers in Dresden, with host nation Germany placing climate change at the heart if its presidency ahead of the UN Climate Change Conference in Paris this December.Signatory Philippe Desfossés, chief executive of the French supplementary civil service scheme (ERAFP), argued that a united front on climate change would allow investors to know they would be “supported, not harmed, by future policies”.Desfossés also backed the letter’s desire for national emissions pledges and actions plans on a country-by-country basis.“A low carbon future is an imperative. Delaying strong policy on climate change would be a false economy.”A similar letter last year, also backed by members of the Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change, its American, Asian and Australian sister organisations, as well as the Principles for Responsible Investment, argued climate policy gaps were holding back low-carbon investment.,WebsitesWe are not responsible for the content of external sitesLink to letter for G7 finance ministers Investors worth $12trn (€11trn) have urged G7 finance ministers to push for a long-term carbon reduction goal as part of the UN climate change conference in Paris, for the first time endorsing a cut in emissions.In a letter backed by 120 investors – including the Swedish AP funds, the UK’s BT Pension Scheme, the Church Commissioners for England, ATP and ABP – the signatories argued that the right signals from policy makers could attract investment to low-carbon projects, reducing the economic damage posed by climate change.It also called for “well-designed” policies that moved the current investment incentives offered from the high to low-carbon intensive industries.“Delaying action will require more stringent policies later if we are to remain within the 2°C emissions budget, exacerbating risks associated with energy investments and potentially stranding assets,” investors warned finance ministers.last_img read more


Sorry folks, Brisbane’s coolest home has just been sold

first_imgThis has got to be a dream property for any hipster.THE coolest home in Brisbane has sold — an industrial warehouse conversion that even has an enormous old safe for storage that will have hipsters salivating. This inner city Brisbane home is the definition of cool, living each day with the sort of chic that will make your local coffee shop barista drooling too.The two bedroom, single bathroom, double car space warehouse is a massive 291 sqm, walking distance into the CBD.Located at 133 Fortescue St, Spring Hill, it was once the city warehouse of stapling equipment firm FJ House, with the last House family member to own it selling for just over $502K in 2002. Last weekend it was sold for $1.23m by agents Sam Mayes and Zac Tully of Ray White — Spring Hill within a month of it being listed. Possibly one of the most striking bathrooms most people have seen. A “safe” place to store your precious threads. “A lot of local Spring Hill house and business owners had interest, and then we had a mixture of buyers from all over Brisbane that purely had interest in the warehouse style and a handful of people flew up from Sydney and Melbourne to view the home. The kitchen and dining room minus any internal walls.More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus17 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market17 hours ago “Of course subject to council approvals,” Mr Tully said, adding that the two street access was a major factor for buyers.“Very rarely do homes become available in Spring Hill with two street access.” The buyer who has not been named was a Brisbane local.The property was listed as rare with no other inner-city living space as cool as it was.“You can search all of Brisbane but you won’t find anything like this industrial-style warehouse conversion that perfectly captures the trendy street-style of Melbourne.” FOLLOW SOPHIE FOSTER ON FACEBOOK The property has a red bathroom, exposed ceilings, steel beams, concrete floors and a very open plan. It even has an enormous safe that’s converted into storage in one of the bedrooms, and a step-up courtyard “where you can sip your Barista-made coffee while soaking up the sunshine”.” Look at all that space! It’s zoned low to medium density residential which opens up options for adding a floor or loft potentially.The property is a dream investment with “extremely rare two street frontage”, and because it’s built in 1950, it‘s not expected to have all the council planning issues in future that pre-war ones do. How the property looked when it was the inner city warehouse of stapling equipment firm F J House. Picture: CoreLogic Westpac triggers first rate rise for all homeowners Billionaire loses $500K flipping penthouse Inside the Kardashians exclusive holiday home Mr Tully told The Courier-Mail that those inspecting the property were “the largest mix of buyers I have ever dealt with”.“A large amount of them were purely wanting to turn it into a fully renovated warehouse though,” he said.
