Re: Termite Swarming Season

I have fitted the LED lamps in the fittings either side of the entrance gate so next time they swarm I will turn off the other lights and see if this helps distract them.

Re: Termite Swarming Season

Does fitting LED lights reduce the amount of flying ants or termites. I read that it severely reduces biting insects but not mosquitoes (they use scent to find their dinner) and was wondering if this also applies in this case.

Re: Google Earth Hua Hin updated

It was blanked out on google maps until I zoomed in on my iphone and then became clear but did appear to be from a slightly different aspect and the red/orange colouration to the right of the blanked out bit was not there. Was there possibly a dire there recently which the satellite managed to catch?

Re: New, incoming, customs searches

Came in yesterday with the wife. I had a bicycle, two large suitcases etc and was not stopped. The wife was just behind me with one suitcase and small bag. I was not stopped and she was. I helped her put her bag through and was not asked to put mine through. It seems to be a cursory random thing and...

Re: Airport Transit Question__Different airlines.

I am pretty sure you can stay airside. If you cannot get a boarding pass for the onward flight when you check in then you should be able to either get one at the transfer desk in Schipol or do it online.

Re: Toss the kettle, you should microwave your tea!

Tea making is an art, not a science. Just as some people prefer a Picasso and others a Monet, good tea is very much a personal taste. The scientist's method may produce a decent cuppa but is unlikely to be adopted as most dedicated tea drinkers are set in their ways.

Re: Nissan Dealership Hua Hin - A Word of Caution

I bought a Vios there four years ago and had some very shoddy work done where pipes where parts were not replaced that should have been. Bought a Hilux from Cha Am twenty two years ago and never had a problem. Now I take the Vios there rather than HH. Obviously peoples experiences will differ but bo...

Re: Nissan Dealership Hua Hin - A Word of Caution

While I was at work a problem developed with the turbo on my year old Navara. It spent over a month in Nissan HH and then went back as they had not tightened up a fuel connection (sounds familiar to phartley58's problem). When I returned and had a chance to look a bit closer it was obvious that mice...

Re: Songkran 2017

If, and it is a huge if, the new seatbelt purge takes effect and people are not allowed in the back of pickup trucks Songkran will not be the same. Much as nowadays I keep clear of the "fun" I do have fond memories of loading up the truck with a few ongs full of water and the family having an enjoya...

Re: All car passengers now required to buckle up

Another law to add to the plethora of existing laws, the enforcement of which is appaling at best. No doubt enforcement/extortion checks will abound as the end of the month approaches.

Re: Just say Hello...

The forum has its moments, quiet for a few days then livens up. Ask a question and you usually get an answer. Most people are okay but you may get the odd sarcastic troll but it is better than some other forums. Enjoy.

Re: Road Closure Soi 88 Railway Crossing to Station

I thank that three assumptions are being made here that the chances of more than one of them applying to the majority of Thai drivers is very slim. 1) that they can read Thai 2) that they know what the sign means 3) that they even looked at the sign in the first place The list could no doubt be adde...

Re: Arthritis Hand Tools

My first thought was an oil filter removal tool but if you look on Lazada using the search "jar opener" in the kitchen section they have some items that may be suitable working similarly to the middle of the items in the photos.
