Inexpensive and easy way to make DIY outdoor lighting by re-purposing a tuna can. A dowel, paint or old broom stick, wood screw, copper fitting, and a thrift store glass hurricane is all that is needed. Simply drill a hole in the can and dowel to attach the dowel/paintstick and spray paint it. Once the paint is dry add the glass hurricane. Cost- $5.00

Rats make 2 holes. A quick enterance and a quicker exit. Maintaining the lawn, grass, weeds is
important. Keep the area clean to prevent rodent harborage. That should help some. Rats don't like their feet wet. Keep the mulch moist. Your neighbors probably have a rat problem too. Rats carry many health hazards associated infestations diseases to humans and animals. Good Luck!
I was at a garage sale and this couple were done for the day and were giving this really nice wood dog kennel away for free. It is missing a few dowels in the front. I want to improve upon it It is very sturdy and of nice wood. I don't have a dog but have friends that do. I could give it for a gift to a dog owner or make it into something completely different. Any ideas or suggestions? What could I do with the door where the dowels are half gone? I appreciate your thoughts!

I'd use it as a fur friends fully open get away. But firstly... remove all slat(s) / dowels,
so the head and or body doesn't get stuck between. Better to be safe then sorry.
