    Wow that is interesting. Exterminators don't charge very much to remove those things, but this is chemical free, easy on the environment and reusable.

    I suppose you could use lead for this too.

    Heating 18lbs of aluminium would probably be easier than heating 180lb of lead.

    Which weighs more a pound of feathers or a pound of lead--lol
    It's kind of fun to do the impossible

    I can just hear Myrna, "That would be a horrible thing to have to dust."

    First of all you have to be smarter than the machine.
