Trees and other perennial plants are
visibly stressed this fall primarily due to
drought conditions from the past two or
more years. Tree stress symptoms in-
clude abundant seed production, leaf
scorch, early fall colors, leaf drop, limb
die back and yellowing or browning of
leaves/needles.
Trees and shrubs, especially conifer
trees and trees and shrubs planted in
the last three years should be watered
generously until the soil freezes.
Mulching newly planted trees will help
reduce winter root damage.
Young maples and thinned barked
trees may benefit from some kind of
sunscald protection to prevent the bark
from cracking this winter and spring.
This protection is usually in the form
of a plastic tube or tree wrap (remove in
spring). These practices can also help in
reducing winter animal damage.
Other fall management practices
which will help reduce winter damage to
trees and shrubs can be found at
http://z.umn.edu/winterdamage.
Protecting trees from rabbits, mice,
voles and deer is a major concern in
some landscapes during the winter.
Mow or remove tall grass to reduce mice
and vole damage. If the bark is removed
or severely damaged around the tree, it
will die. Protective physical barriers
such as tree tubes, hardware cloth or
fencing can be done when practical.
Odor, taste and visual repellents can
be used to repel many wildlife species,
but may have inconsistent effectiveness.
Human hair, soaps, garlic oil, hot sauce
and animal repellents can be applied to
branches and foliage to discourage
browsing.
Weather, application frequency, animal
population and feeding pressure affect the
success of repellents. Some animals be-
come desensitized to the repellent, so you
may want to alternate repellents. A web re-
source that reviews prevention and control
of wildlife damage can be found at
http://z.umn.edu/critters.
If you are unsure what is causing
problems in your landscape, Extension
has a great web site to help homeowners
diagnose tree, shrub and plant problems
or identifying a weed or insect. This site
also has links to the UM Plant Disease
Clinic and Soil Testing Lab.
http://z.umn.edu/diagnose.
Fall is also a good time to plant trees
(water till the soil freezes). Recom-
mended trees for all regions of Min-
nesota can be found at
http://z.umn.edu/rectrees. The best time
to prune trees is during the dormant
season from January to March. Flower-
ing shrubs can be pruned in the summer
after flowering.

The winter season is upon us in Min-
nesota and Silver Lake Fire Chief Dale
Kosek suggests a few safety tips for
homeowners and families to prepare for
the long, cold season.
Kosek said checking carbon monoxide
detectors is very important, especially in
the upcoming winter months.
“Most calls we have regarding the car-
bon monoxide detectors are false. We
are paged out to a house, but it’s be-
cause their machine is old and out-
dated. It’s important to do monthly self-
tests on the detectors,” Kosek said.
“And the most obvious thing is to
check smoke detectors. Make sure they
are up-to-date and working, and if they
have low batteries, change them,”
Kosek said.
He also added the following:
• Do not leave candles unattended,
especially holiday seasons approaching.
Avoid using candles in
bedrooms and sleep-
ing areas and extin-
guish candles after
use. Also, keep them
at least 12 inches
away from anything
that can burn.
• Acquire burning
permits from your
local township or gov-
ernment entity.
• Plan a family fire
drill and design an es-
cape plan before win-
ter sets in. Practice an
escape plan from every
room in the house, and
caution everyone to
stay low to the floor
when escaping from
fire. Select a location
where everyone can
meet after escaping
the house.
• Check wiring in sheds, garages, and
barns.
• Do not overload electrical circuits
with too many cords and electronics, es-
pecially take caution when stringing
Christmas lights. Do not place cords
and wires under rugs or over nails.
Kosek also added suggestions for
those using wood-burning stoves and
those disposing of paint cans and rags.
“With wood-burning stoves, one
should remember to not burn green
wood. This is what causes the majority
of chimney fires,” Kosek said.
Regarding paint supplies, Kosek re-
minds homeowners to “dispose of paint
rags and varnish rags separately. The
best bet is to seal the paint cans before
disposing. That way not much oxygen
can get in the can to start a fire,” Kosek
said.
With the holiday season approaching,
Kosek said to use “extra caution” in the
use of extension cords for extra Christ-
mas lighting, etc.
“Inspect holiday lights each year for
frayed wires, bare spots, gaps in insula-
tion, broken or cracked sockets, and ex-
cessive kinking before putting lights
up,” he said.
Kosek also suggested clearing homes
of clutter.
“Clutter is a huge hazard to fire
safety. It’s a fire trap waiting to happen,
so clean hallways and rooms of clutter,”
Kosek said.
He added that he has found boxes sit-
ting on extension cords and piled next
to heaters in some homes. “The best
thing is to clean it up. Keep the cords
cleared and keep items a least three
feet from heaters,” he said.

For 20 years, Tom Ische has
been building custom-designed
fish houses for the greater Mid-
west area.
Ische, and his wife, Nancy,
own Performance Engineering
in Glencoe, and Ische builds
between 45 and 50 fish houses
a year.
Ische said he got started in
the business when he and his
dad were looking to buy an ice
house 20 years ago.
“We didn’t find anything we
liked, so we built our own, and
it all started from there,” Ische
said.
A custom-built fish houses
entails cooking and bathroom
facilities and sleeping bunks.
“When I build fish houses, I
start from the ground up. We
build everything, from the floors
to the walls to the ceiling,”
Ische said.
He uses steel and aluminum
materials and oak, cedar and
pine for interior woodwork.
“We use the local lumber-
yard, Fullerton, for much of our
wood, but we order everything
else through RV companies
around the United States,”
Ische said.
The fish houses are not only
outfitted with multiple fishing
holes but also satellite TV, full
stereo systems, DVD appli-
ances. ovens, and microwaves.
“These are more than just
fish houses. They can be used
as campers or for deer hunting,
too,” Ische said.
Ische has built fish houses
for customers in North Dakota,
South Dakota, Iowa, Wisconsin,
Minnesota and even Canada.
“When I first started, we were
only one of a few businesses
that built ice houses in Min-
nesota. Now there are several,”
he said.
Ische said his busiest build-
ing schedule is between the
first of September and the mid-
dle of February.
“I take extra help on at that
time. Currently, I have one full-
time employee and two part-
time employees,” Ische said.
The waiting list for a custom-
built ice house at Performance
Engineering is two to four
months.
“It’s a big business in the
state. These houses can be
used for so much more than
ice fishing, too. They are
multi-functional,” Ische said.

list of prices, visit www.

With the winter season ap-
proaching, Preston Fox of 4-
Square Builders, Inc. offers
advice for “weatherizing”
homes.
Fox said proper insulation in
homes is very important to pre-
vent heat loss.
“For the typical homeowner
preparing for winter, attic insu-
lation is something to think
about. Homeowners should
make sure insulation reaches
all edges of the attic eaves,”
Fox said.
He explained that proper in-
sulation in attics prevents an
ice dam, which is caused by
snow/ice buildup on roofs. Also,
variations between warm and
cold temperatures, and under
ventilated and poorly insulated
attic and deficient roof installa-
tion contribute to ice dam
buildup.
“That’s where a majority of
heat loss occurs, and proper in-
sulation can prevent that from
occurring,” Fox said.
He added that homeowners
should inspect any exterior in-
sulation.
“If one has any exterior insu-
lation, make sure it’s covered,
and check to see that any pets
or pests haven’t chewed on it or
compromised the integrity of
the insulation,” Fox said.
He added that cleaning gut-
ters is also important to prevent
backflow of water and melting
snow into homes.
He also said windows can be
a major source of heat loss if
not updated.
“For older windows, home-
owners can cover with plastic to
give that extra layer for warmth,
but installing new windows can
be a more efficient option, al-
though it’s not always the best
option for some homeowners,”
he said.
Fox said to also check
weather stripping in the win-
dows.
“It doesn’t hurt to check even
newer windows that are five to
10 years old. Opening and clos-
ing windows can cause that
stripping to shift, and a quick
little once-over doesn’t hurt,”
Fox said.
Checking weather stripping
in doors is also something to
think about, Fox said.
Fox added that maintaining
and updating mechanical
equipment for the winter is
also important.
“Make sure your furnaces
are cleaned and working at
optimal levels and check the
duct work,” Fox said.

Square Builders, Inc., visit

call Fox at 320-864-6183.
Weatherize your home properly this fall/winter
Alyssa Schauer, Staff Writer
According to Preston Fox of 4-Square Builders Inc. in Glencoe, proper installation of
attic insulation can prevent heat loss in homes and protect homeowners against dam-
ages from ice dams. Ice dams occurs when snow on a roof melts and refreezes near
the overhang, and melted snow gets trapped between the ice dam and additional
snow. This trapped water can then leak into the attic of homes and damage insulation
and create heat loss. That melted water can also refreeze in the soffits or overhangs
of homes.

Of the 1,272 federal disaster decla-
rations issued in the last decade, more
than half were classified as major dis-
asters. These include calamities such as
floods, hurricanes and tropical storms,
winter storms, and others. In the last 10
years, every state has had a least two
events designated as a major federal
disaster.
“Most major disasters displaced hun-
dreds or thousands of people from home
and work, and nearly all involved a tem-
porary or prolonged loss of major serv-
ices and necessities, including power,
communications, and running water,”
said Jonathan Bacon, director of mar-
keting at Wilson Electronics, a maker of
communications equipment in St.
George, Utah.
“We began thinking about what has
changed in technology and society, and
how that would affect what we would
want to have in an emergency ‘go-
pack’,” Bacon said. “A lot of what we
would take with us hasn’t changed, but
some of what we’d desire today had not
been invented 10 years ago. We came
up with six items that were either in-
vented or radically improved in the last
10 years. We call it the 21st Century
Survival Kit.”
1. Cell phone signal booster: “We’re all
extremely dependent on smartphones
for voice and data communications. Al-
ready widely used by first responders
and news crews when initially entering
disaster zones, a portable cell phone
signal booster, helps to transmit and re-
ceive calls and data via cell towers un-
affected by a disaster. In a severe
situation like Hurricane Sandy where all
communications were compromised for
several days, having a cell booster could
save precious hours of driving time to
find a strong cell signal.”
2. Batteries: Two portable lithium-ion
batteries, each with a minimum capac-
ity of 10,000mAh, is enough for one
battery to fully charge at least three
smartphones or to power a tablet, net-
book, or cell booster for several hours.
3. Portable solar panel: “These solar
panels weigh only about a pound and
are very practical for charging portable
batteries and devices,” said Bacon. He
recommended a panel capable of pro-
ducing at least 10 watts of power and
one amp of current.
4. LED headlamp: Also powered by
rechargeable batteries, the latest gener-
ation of these types of lamps have ad-
justable brightness to maximize battery
life and can
be made
b r i g h t
enough to
cast light
more than
100 feet.
5. Two-way
FRS/GMRS ra-
dios: “When
even a
booster can
not find a
cell signal,
these radios
provide a
communica-
tions range up to 30 miles,” said
Bacon.
6. Microbial filter straw: This is used
for drinking water that may be contam-
inated with bacteria, organic and water-
borne chemicals, and other harmful
elements. One filter straw can filter 30
gallons of water.
“A lot has happened just in the last
10 years to make keeping in contact
and avoiding health risks easier under
adverse conditions,” said Bacon. All of
these products are readily available,
weigh less than five pounds total and
take up little room in a backpack.

There is no doubt that managing crit-
ters in the landscape can be a chal-
lenge, especially as food supplies start
to dwindle. If you are battling with rab-
bits, deer, groundhogs or other wildlife,
do not let down your guard as the grow-
ing season begins to wind down.
Be proactive. Start before they get into
the habit of dining on your landscape.
It is easier to keep them away than
break the dining habit.
Fence them out. Fencing is the best
defense against most wildlife. A four-
foot tall fence around a small garden
will keep out rabbits. Secure the bot-
tom tight to the ground or bury it several
inches to prevent rabbits and voles from
crawling underneath. Or fold the bot-
tom of the fence outward, making sure
it is tight to the ground. Animals tend
not to crawl under when the bottom
skirt faces away from the garden.
Go deeper, at least 12 to 18 inches,
if you are trying to discourage wood-
chucks. And make sure the gate is se-
cure. Many hungry animals have found
their way into the garden through open-
ings around and under the gate.
A five-foot fence around small garden
areas can help safeguard your plantings
against hungry deer. Some gardeners re-
port success surrounding their garden
with fishing line mounted on posts at
one and three foot heights.
Break out the repellents. Homemade
and commercial repellents can be used.
Apply before the animals start feeding
and reapply as directed. Consider using
a natural product. It is made of herbs,
safe to use and smells good.
Scare them away. Blow up owls, clang-
ing pans, rubber snakes, slivers of de-
odorant soap, handfuls of human hair
and noise makers are scare tactics that
have been used by gardeners for years.
Consider your environment when select-
ing a tactic. Urban animals are used to
the sound and smell of people. Alter-
nate scare tactics for more effective
control. The animals will not be afraid
of a snake that has not moved in weeks.
Combine tactics. Use a mix of fencing,
scare tactics and repellents. Keep mon-
itoring for damage. If there are enough
animals and they are hungry, they will
eat just about anything.
Do not forget about nature. Welcome
hawks and fox into your landscape.
Using less pesticides and tolerating
some critters, their food source, will en-
courage them to visit your yard. These
natural pest controllers help keep the
garden-munching critters under control.
And most importantly, do not give up.
A bit of persistence, variety and adapt-
ability is the key to success. Investing
some time now will not only deter exist-
ing critters from dining in your land-
scape, but will also reduce the risk of
animals moving in next season.

Arlington Market will again be processing deer this
year. Taking trim and whole carcass, without the hide. No
skinning will be done.
We are able to do all your favorites: summer sausage,
snack sticks, jerkys, hot dogs, brats, breakfast links, and

same this year.
In our store we also carry

seasoning, jerky spices,
casings and marinades for
the do-it-your-selfers.
