Recommendations

Are your plants dying? Hi, have any readers experienced losing potted plants recently, I.e dying ? Well this ugly beast maybe the culprit. Having recently had three tubs of flowers , carefully watered etc die I emptied one tub and found three or four of these creatures. On digging deep into the others I found the earth was infested with young ones. From what I can gather from Google they are either the grub/ larvae of the rhinoceros beetle or something else which apparently lives on roots !! Perhaps someone may have some more information regarding them. Strangely though they were all in bagged earth purchased from a garden center. The ‘thing’ is approximately two to two and a half inches long and as thick as a man’s small finger. Any answers please. David ,Caleta, 625266792.

Contacting Seprona: Can anyone advise me how to report animal cruelty to Seprona? I live in the UK but have a house in the Vinuela area and visit on a regular basis. However I do not speak much Spanish. Any advice would be greatly appreciated by myself and the dogs affected. Kevin. sales@aossupplies.co.uk

English Spanish Interchange: We are looking for someone interested in an interchange of conversation. Your English for our Spanish. Once or twice per week, in Torrox Costa or El Morche. In addition we want to contact with Sean and his wife, because we lost the phone number, some time ago, we meet them in this exchange conversations. So if you want improve your Spanish and expend a wee time in a funny conversation, please send an email to miguel_cubiles @ hotmail.com  or a whatsapp to 657328860. Thanks for your time. Miguel.

Electricity Fraud: Over the last 18 months or so, a number of my clients have had extortionate bills from a certain electricity supplier as a result of “fraud”. In each and every case a technician has made a report stating that a “shunt” has been added to the meter to bypass the counter and “steal” electricity. I have successfully reclaimed a number of these and am on a mission to ensure the culprit is found – on all the Reports I have seen so far it is the same engineer and almost identical wording! If anyone has had a similar experience please get in touch with me. The area is ostensibly Competa but any area would be interesting.
