I don't think it matters what type of mold you have, just as long as a professional removes it or deals with it in some way. I have not heard of Decon but I know a small business owner in Ambler....he has a company called "Dry Basements by Dean." He did an excellent job taking care of my cousin's house after it got flooded and started to develop mold. It is probably best to leave it to the professionals either way, because it can be quite a hassle doing it yourself depending on how badly your home is affected.

they should be left alone, nobody should mess with these animals...snakes will be aggressive when they feel threatened. I have been to the ER with one of my father's employees because he thought it was a good idea to pick up a copperhead. They are wild animals...they are not "docile" kittens...leave them alone and give them lots of space.

As far as keeping pests away, there is no perfect solution, but there are a lot of tricks out there that can help. Aside from using fencing as a barrier there are natural products called "Deer Scram" and "Deer Away" which keep deer and rabbits away without the use of chemicals (Deer scram really works! it needs to be re-applied every 2 weeks). These are comprised of garlic powder, black pepper and a dried-blood scent that scares animals away....but it doesn't smell too bad to humans. You can also use things like little mirrors tied to string to create a barrier that scares away deer and birds, but most people don't like the glare. Some people have used bar soap, like Irish spring or Dial, cut up into little pieces and scattered about the garden; this method can keep some animals away, but others are very stubborn. Slugs love to chow down on cabbage, and they can be trapped by placing very shallow dishes filled with a mixture of cheap beer and laundry detergent around the garden. The slugs will be attracted to the smell of the beer and fall into the mix and die....keeping them off the vegetables!

It is very common for doctors to write off symptoms like back pain as being unrelated to the heart. There are many doctors that feel that only "chest pains" indicate an MI, but I did see a patient that was 39 years old and admitted to the ER with severe nausea and vomitting. He was kept in the ER for six hours before an EKG was performed, which showed the classic ST-elevation of an MI and he was sent for an emergency cath in my lab. We used an aspiration catheter to suck out a giant blood clot from his artery and then stented it. Unfortunately for this man, a huge portion of his left ventricle had died and was no longer beating in sync with the rest of his heart. Nobody in the ER recognized his symptoms as a Heart attack!
