Carpenter Bees
Posted on May 14th, 2018 Comments (0)
It has been reported that several homes have identified Carpenter Bees around decks and fences. A tell tale sign is looking for holes bored into wood structures about the size of a an ink pen or 1/2 of an inch. The bees have the appearance of a bumble bee and you may observe them flying around or even making the hole for the larvae to grow.
 
There are many types of over the shelf insecticides that can be used and can be found at most landscaping sales departments. Treat the holes and do not patch until fall, as the carpenter bees will only create another hole and you want them to enter the hole to get into the insecticide.   Review websites and follow all directions on combating Carpenter Bees and suggested ways to patch holes.

Looking for Social Committee Volunteers
By Randy Kline on November 8, 2018
Dear Residents,

The Board of Directors need your help. We are in need of volunteers for the Social Committee to perform duties for the community such as Santa visit, Friday Night Swim event, Fall Festival and similar events. I have a list of 6 individuals already, but the more the merrier. This will allow the committee to assign workers to a single or multiple events, so you can participate a little or a lot. Send your information directly to me at randy.kline@fsresidential.com

I can then set up a time for all volunteers to meet and discuss events that meet community's requests.

Regards,
Randy Kline

Post Lamp Maintainance
February 15, 2018
A multitude of violation letters have been mailed out recently with the topic being the requirement for keeping Post Lamps operational. This can be something as simple as bulb replacement to having to replace the photo sensor. Keeping the Post Lamp in operational condition includes the following.

-- Replacement of all burned out light bulb(s): If only one bulb is burning and the other 2 or 3 are not, you must replace the burned out bulb(s). Light sources must be “white” or incandescent. High-pressure sodium (yellow-orange) lights are prohibited. Flashing lights of any color are prohibited. LED lights are a great option for their longevity, but should be the lowest possble wattage (15-20 watts) to minimize glare.

--If the light does not come on at night: Replace the photo sensor and or check to see if the GFI (Ground Fault Interrupter) is tripped. The GFI controlling the Lamp Post may be found in one of several locations: in the garage on a wall socket outlet; or in the electrical panel breaker box usuually located in the utility room, or on the wall just inside the utility room. If after these possibilities are ruled out, you may have a break in the line and you should contact a professional to repair.

--If a light stays on during the day: Usually signals that you need to replace the photo cell. Photo cell kits are available at any home repair/project store for minimum cost. And are relatively easy to replace.

--If your overall light fixture requires replacing (rusted, broken): You must replace with a new light fixture matching both the fixture being replaced and the light sconce on the side of the house near the main door. (Note: Only replace light fixtures with an existing type, style, size, color and consistency of the old fixture. You may have to go online, find the matching model, and order as most are not found at a local hardware store). Note: If you are still in possession of your original buyers binder, information on the outdoor lights (make, model, etc.) are located there.

Keeping your outdoor lighting in good operating conditions enhances the security of your home and helps in ensuring the well-being of our community as a whole by presenting a well-kept and uniform appearance.
