    Re: Treatment free???

    Check out fatbeeman on youtube. He makes traps out of coroplast, boric acid and crisco. An oldtimer I know says that boric acid works on the little bastards. Good luck!

    10-4 to Tenbears. Give em whatever you have. If I were to start over I would use all one size. With one size any frame fits where you wish to place it.

    Re: Would you send it back?

    Contact their customer service people and tell them that for a second quality box you want a second quality price. Otherwise have them replace it with a first quality box at their expense. Done.
