Rider60, I was happy to read your solutions. But let me point out to another fact. When for example, a malarial outbreak is there, using mosquito repellants does not cut it, neither does taking other short term measures to get rid of the problem. Keeping neighbourhood clean and spraying or fumigating the neighbourhood becomes equally important. Why? To deal with the problem at root level. What you see as rants may be percieved as a discussion by others. Some of us might want to take the liberty to discuss issues at length, but they are all related to the main issue here. I am sure your suggestions are tried and tested by yourself and probably others you know. I have faced this problem with dogs with the Linea while travel at Surat during a halt. Now while travelling I don't think one could everyday follow the instructions and solutions provided by you religiously or maybe that's just me. We all love our cars by the way. No offense meant here. As regards, viewpoints and jokes cracked there is also a hidden message there that some of us need to lighten up and treat this as not too serious issue. However, that is just a suggestion, one can totally think and act otherwise. Please reply to our prior posts if and where you think certain points (solutions) may be valid. I hope the posts are not completely useless.
