We’ve been invaded by thousands of ladybugs this year, and the cracks between the logs of our 150-year-old cabin allowed them ample entry. While filling all those cracks with 35 tubes of caulk, I learned a new trick.
A slash cut is the best tip configuration for applying caulk to the cracks between logs. As soon as the caulk oozes out, though, it obscures the cut. And when you take pressure off the plunger, the tube tends to rotate, making it tough to align correctly for the next crack. The fix is easy. Mark an arrow on top of the caulk tube that indicates the top of the slash cut.
