Dear Reena,
I have never had difficulty threading a needle be-
fore; however, recently I started having trouble seeing the
eye of the needle. Do you have any simple tricks for this?

Dear Kennedy,
A magnifying glass can help with this challenge. Here
is a hack that works like magic: place the thread across
the palm of your open hand. Lay the eye of the needle on
top of the thread. Vigorously move the eye of the needle
back and forth on the thread; the thread will eventually
move into the eye of the needle. Pull the thread, and be-
gin sewing. This takes a few tries to master but will get
easier after you get the hang of it.

Dear Reena,
Can you tell me the best way to keep bats out of my
house (attic and basement)? Will mothballs work? Paul
