Please Note- RV Lot to be repaved next week

  

RV Lot to be repaved next week

Please note that the RV lot is getting repaved next week, starting Sunday July 16th.  All RVs will need to be removed from the RV lot during that time.

In addition to the sewer line construction, we will also all need to be more tolerant and patient with our neighbors, especially those who have RVs that may need to use some of our Guest parking spaces while the RV lot is closed.

It is nice to see the continuation of improvements to our neighborhood and appreciate your understanding during these disruptions to our normal routines.

spraying for Bluegrass BillBug and Crane Fly – Extended to Tuesday the 20th

Bluegrass billbug larvae

Crane Fly larvae

Garron Grounds will be spraying for both Bluegrass Billbug and Crane Fly on Thursday and Friday.  It is best to not let children or pets on the lawn after treatment, until the lawn has been watered and is dry.   Thursday will be a perfect day for them to spray, as the weather channel has promised rain, followed by a few days of dry weather.

Both the Billbug and the Crane Fly eat the roots and the crowns of the grass, causing brown spots within the lawn.  After the spraying is complete Garron will be fertilizing and re-seeding to ensure that we don’t have brown spots (caused by the pest) for long

Aphids and Ladybugs

Also, if you notice bags on some trees:

Garron is releasing 300,000 lady bugs.  Bags filled with ladybugs are attached to the trees, the lady bug  climbs up the tree and eats the aphids attached to the tree.  You may remember last year some sap dripping off trees in our area.  We had some on our patio that looked like drops of rain or sprinkler spray.  According to Ken (Garron Grounds) a aphid can eat 50 times their weight and cause your trees to respond with a dripping sap.

What’s great about the Aphid treatment, is that it is a considered a “Beneficial insect” as they will not hurt the bees that we need.  Ken is really excited to use Ladybugs, instead of insecticides.

 

If there is a tree on your property that you would like cut down or trimmed, let Steve Chinn know

Steve asked me to let everyone know that CTS is going to be in the neighborhood next Friday, June 23rd.  CTS is the company that does a lot of the tree removal for us in Charbonneau.

Some of you have already asked Steve about a tree on your property already, if you did Steve will make sure that CTS gets over to your place and gives you a bid.  If the bid sounds good to you, CTS will let you know when they will get by to cut/trim your tree.  Once they have completed all jobs in the neighborhood, CTS will send one bill to Ann Higgins and then Ann will mail you a bill for the price that you agreed to pay for your tree/trees.

If you have a tree on your property that you would like to have trimmed or cut down, and you havenot told anyone, please let Steve know ASAP, he will add you to the list of homes so that CTS can come to your place to give you a bid.   CTS will then send the bid they quoted to you to Ann, (same as the paragraph above) and Ann will mail you a bill after all work by CTS has been done.

This is just an offer from CTS to hopefully save you some money, if you don’t like their bid, of course you can tell them no.

Reminder- June 20th 6:30 Preventive Water Damage Program Presentation

 

To identify problems before they happen, the board is working with our insurance agent and a local plumber to offer optional  inspections of our plumbing systems.  Come to an informational meeting and enjoy a nice glass of wine and a variety of meats and cheeses on Tuesday, June 20th at 6:30 pm at Rec Hall C, on Lafayette Dr.

Jay Puppo will show a 7 minute slide show of the problem and introduce us to the plumber.  The first 5 owners to sign up for a plumbing inspection will receive high grade stainless steel washing machine hoses to be installed by the plumber.
