Residents Bee-wary, Bee-safe This Summer As summer approaches, we want to remind residents that as weather warms bee infestation can be a problem for property residents. Bee and wasp colonies can be a hazard to homes and neighbors especially those with small children or the elderly. Homeowners that see bees coming and going likely have a colony, which will continue to grow if not removed. The larger the colony the likelihood for danger increases. Moreover, greater expense can be incurred for removal and potential liability to homeowners. Inspect Your Property • Listen for buzzing and look for bees entering or leaving the same area indicating a nest or swarm of bees. • Examine work areas prior to using noisy power equipment such as lawn mowers, weed cutters and chain saws. • Examine areas for bees before tying up or penning pets. • Never disturb a swarm or colony of bees – contact a bee removal service or pest control company. • Teach children to be cautious around and respectful to all bees.

• If you know you are allergic to bee stings check with your doctor about a sting kit. Bee-proof your property: • Inspect outside walls and eves of your house and other buildings. • Seal openings greater than one-eighth inch in diameter (⅛inch) in walls, around chimneys, masonry, pluming and any other openings. • Install screens (⅛-inch hardware cloth) over rain spouts, vents, cavities of trees and fence posts, water meter, utility boxes, etc. • From spring through fall inspect 1-2 times per week for bee activity around your house and yard. What to do if you discover a bee infestation: • Do not disturb a swarm or colony. • Bees should not be allowed to live in a house or other structure. The longer a colony lives in a structure the more defensive they will become and the more costly removal and repair will become. • Call a professional bee removal service or pest control operator. Potential Bee nesting sites: • Bees will choose a nesting site in many places where people may disturb them. Nesting cavities may include: buckets, cans, empty boxes, old tires or any container ranging in volume from as little as 2 to 10 gallons and more. Bees will also choose infrequently used vehicles, lumber piles, holes and cavities in fences, trees, even in the ground, in sheds, garages and other outbuildings between walls or in the open, low decks or spaces under buildings. • Like all living organisms, honey bees need water for hydration. This becomes especially evident during hot dry weather when natural sources dry up and bees begin to collect water from sources close to people and domestic animals. We all want to help bees survive but sometimes that’s just not practical, especially when children are competing with bees for water. • Bees will collect water whereever it can be found. It could be from a dirty puddle, a pond, a brook, your swimming pool, irrigation system, birdbath, dripping outdoor faucet...etc. 8

Tips on keeping bees away from pools: • When you first notice bees around your pool, spray them with a soap-water solution. Soap-water solution: Mix 1 part dish soap to 4 parts water in spray bottle. • Spray all bees around your pool with this solution. The soap-water solution will kill the bees but doesn’t leave a harmful residue like an insecticide. Spray every bee until no bees return for at least one day. This will kill those water foragers telling others in the colony where your swimming pool is located. Eventually you will kill all those bees foraging at your pool and prevent them from telling others about your pool. Other water foragers will find a different source of water, so don’t worry. It’s unlikely your pool is the only source of water within foraging distance. In reality you’re only eliminating a very small proportion of the foraging population and an even smaller proportion of the total colony population. Pet water and birdbaths: 1 part vinegar to 256 parts water (2 tablespoons vinegar to 1 gallon water). Note: DO NOT USE THE SOAP-WATER SOLUTION ABOVE IN BIRD BATHS & PET WATER! “Texas A&M University Honey Bee Information” http://honeybee.tamu.edu/page3/page3.html

with a parking lane. There is not enough width to allow for a parking lane. More seriously, when an emergency vehicle is unable to obtain egress and ingress to a street, precious minutes are lost that could mean loss of life/and or property. The problem becomes intolerable in cul-de-sacs where emergency vehicles or others cannot turn around due to vehicles parking inappropriately and not parallel to the curb. The neighbors of these improperly parked vehicles are inconvenienced when they have to go out of their way to get around them. Be aware that Law Enforcement can and will ticket vehicles parked too far from the curb, parked the wrong way on the street, parked facing in on a cul-de-sac instead of parallel to the curb or parking too close to a fire hydrant or a traffic sign. Everyone can “look the other way” and tolerate a vehicle parked temporarily for a visitor. We are referring to vehicles parked overnight, day after day. Please try to think of others and be a good neighbor. Don’t block your neighbor’s ability to enter and exit his driveway safely or block his/or her mailbox. We know that the homes in Windsong have two car garages. If you have multiple vehicles, please try to park them in the driveway and/or the garage overnight and whenever possible. Your neighbors will thank you! WCIA Board of Directors 10
SPECIAL PROJECT COMING UP? 1. First things first…an Architectural Control Application needs to be completed and submitted to Windsong CIA c/o SCS management Services before any work is started. 2. Include samples of paint, shingles, etc. with the application. 3. Once submitted, SCS Management Services will forward the application to the Architectural Control Committee for review. 4. Wait for a written approval from the ACC before beginning any work. Contact SCS at 281-463-1777 if you need an application. The Board of Directors and the Architectural Control Committee are concerned that residents are completing projects without prior approval. Did you know that if you complete any project that does not meet architectural guidelines you are in violation of the deed restrictions? The association has the right to take action to enforce the deed restrictions and request the removal or modification of your improvement. We want you to know before hand so that you do not spend money on improvements that may not be approved. Remember, that the deed restrictions and the architectural guidelines are in place to protect neighborhood harmony and maintain everyone’s property values.
EXTERIOR HOUSE PAINT COLOR SELECTION The WCIA provides many opportunities for the residents to obtain approval for exterior painting prior to commencing the work. Each new resident is mailed a New Resident Welcome Packet that contains among other things a copy of the Architectural Guidelines that is recorded in the real property records of Harris County. Article VIII of this document tells you the guidelines for painting and the locations for you to view the approved color chart (SCS Management Services, 7170 Cherry Park Drive, Houston, TX 77095 and Sherwin-Williams, 5814 High-

Pet Hotline News Kittens and puppies are being dumped in Subdivisions and shopping strips. They will not find good homes. Most will be taken by the pound or shelter and those are overflowing with pets. They cannot help but have to euthanize some. You, as a responsible pet owner can be of great help by having your cat or dog spayed or neutered and not worry about finding homes for the offspring. You will have a healthier and happy pet. Another and very important thing you can do is have a collar with some form of ID and your phone number on it. Pet stores have special ID’s for your pets. Many pet owners are now “chipping” the pets. If found and taken to a vet they can scan chip and find the owner. If your pet has a rabies tag, the vet has your name and #. The first thing I ask a caller is “does the pet have ID on it.” If it does, I will help contact the # on the ID and get the pet to it’s owner ASAP. Or, the owner can pick up their lost pet. Having an ID on a pet makes life easier for all. Marie Nugent - 281-859-1104
GARDENING TIPS FOR MAY
• Last chance to prune and fertilize azaleas. Keep mulch several inches thick at all times. Fertilize camellias lightly for second time. • Fertilize crepe myrtles monthly from spring through summer with a high phosphorous fertilizer for bloom. If iron deficiencies appear (yellow leaves) use Green Light Iron and soil Acidifier according to label directions. • This is the time of year for aphids and mildew. Each problem has many solutions, but to handle both at once you can use either Orthenex Insect & Disease Control Formula III or just plain soapy water (Liquid Ivory 1 tsp. - 1 Tbsp. for insects and 4 tsp. baking soda for fungus in every

“I’m In PAIN” Can Chiropractic Help ME ? We are often asked, “What’s the best way of finding out whether or not a doctor of chiropractic can help my problem?” We believe the answer can be found in a complete chiropractic consultation and examination, including x-rays. And to help find out for sure, we will do a complete consultation and examination, including x-rays, if necessary, (procedures that normally cost $187.00 or more) for $25.00. We will make this special program available through May. The only exception to the offer involves personal injury cases (workers’ compensation and auto accidents) in which there is no charge directly to the patient.
