maintenance issues: HELP! It's an EMERGENCY!!! Yeah, right... - 01/23/13 12:38 PM
Over the last few years working in property management software, I haven’t had the joy of getting called in the middle of the night with an “emergency” situation (which, 9 out of 10 times were never emergencies.) Although, I do get a chuckle when I get to hear my customers tell me their war-stories. When I was a site manager, I had a rule I would try to enforce that an emergency is “FIRE, FLOOD or BLOOD.” Anything that could wait until business hours, should.

From time-to-time, around our property, I see a carpent ant trail. I have done my research and know that if I follow the trail, eventually I will find a nest. I know there can be several satelite nests that form away from the "mother-load." The trail I see always appears in a similar location and I have followed the trail to a bark-dusted area by a creek bordering our property.
