Dear Heloise: I have a problem with cats getting in my insulation under my trailer and tearing it up. They make a lot of noise. Animal Control won't help trap them. What can I do? — Jerry B., Hammond, La.
Jerry, your best bet to keep animals from nesting under your trailer is to put up some type of skirting around your trailer to keep them out. You might want to consult with a handyman as to what type of skirting you should use, but make certain there are no animals under your trailer when the skirting is put in place. — Heloise
Dear Heloise: In regards to the high cost of medicine, most pharmacies will sell you the generic brand if you ask for it. A few will even sell you medication at their cost if your insurance company does not cover your prescription. — Frances S., King George, Vir.
Frances, please clear this with your doctor before switching to a generic drug. — Heloise
A Couple of Hints
Dear Heloise: When doing laundry, turn pants wrong side out. Pockets will dry faster and the pants don't fade as fast.
No lid for a big pan? Use an aluminum pizza pan. You can set another regular lid on top for more weight, making a better seal. — Phyllis S., Hamilton, Ind.
