Google finds a way

The Riverine Herald - - LETTERS -

JUST a thought, but I Googled for ad­vice on a cou­ple of lo­cal is­sues men­tioned re­cently in the Riv:

■ Light­ing along Cam­paspe Es­planade. Some time ago, there was a spate of car break-ins and bur­glar­ies near where I live. After in­stalling sev­eral so­lar lights, they im­me­di­ately stopped. Crim­i­nals need the cover of dark­ness to carry out their ac­tiv­i­ties. The cost was neg­li­gi­ble when you con­sider the se­cu­rity and re­duc­tion in anx­i­ety achieved. I have ordered a cou­ple of so­lar lights on eBay to ex­per­i­ment in re­duc­ing dark­ness along Cam­paspe Es­planade – to­tal cost $7 (free postage).

■ Get­ting rid of pi­geons from build­ings. Once again, Googling pro­duced a pos­si­ble so­lu­tion. Ul­tra­sonic bird and an­i­mal re­peller – at a cost un­der $50 an area of eight square me­tres can be fully pro­tected. Barry McDou­gal, Echuca
