Because many Americans have put such a high emphasis on home ownership, the majority of their wealth may be tied up in home equity, limiting their ability to access money to pay expenses. For many individuals in this circumstance, reverse mortgages are attractive because of their ability to provide access to home equity, while retaining the borrower's right to live in their home.

Nightcrawlers

Lately, I have been getting many calls with people concerned with small mounds in their turf, making it difficult to mow, work or play in their yard.

I thought I would share this to give more infomation about these beneficial but sometimes annoying worms.
