I recommend both the screening and the gutters. Well worth the investment. The screens do allow for ventilation but also keep the ceiling of your front porch free of bugs.

Geez, what an irritating group they are!
We moved in in February and were bombarded with water and bug guys

Yes... I think I'm getting the "deep clean" scam too (not in Villages; "up north") Don't know what to do except challenge them on it -- "I brush and floss twice a day? Why to I need a deep clean?"

We get the chimney cleaners. The other day we had the termite control guy but we think it might've actually been a burglary operation, because the Stanley Steamer truck was behind our house, parked on the side of the back driveway that leads to the Senior Housing (our house's driveway is off this back drive to the Housing property, we have a right of way).

I've never seen the steamer guys even on the property, let alone parked out directly behind our fence.

We told the guy if he didn't get off our property we'd call the police. He got lost quick enough.

Last time we moved our doctor sugested we get a thumb drive that had a medic-alert symbol on it and add it to our keys. If something happens when traveling you have all right at hand and emts look for medic alets.
We scanned in the medical files and had a file titled emergency overview at the top listing meds alergies pre existing conditions etc. When my husband had a cardiac problem the nurse took the drive plugged it into the computer and transfered the whole lot into a file with his name on it. No waiting for a link to the files from the doctor etc. Some doctors nurses will set the drive up for you for a fee. But there are two types one that is just a blank thumb with medical markings and the other has software with questions to answer included.

Just a thought
This is the best information ever. Thank you for sharing. You may have saved a life🦄
