Google finds a way
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
