On every block of every day, the constant cacophony of construction equipment sounds the death knell for the tiny tract houses of the University Hills neighborhood. Murdered by McMansions, the ghosts of the original homes wander the streets seeking residence in the remaining clapboard ranchettes. The ghost invasion is freaking frightening. Calling a ghostbuster is very expensive, so many homeowners are forced to find a suitable do-it-yourself solution. The contraption pictured above is called a ghost catcher and is hung from trees to block the major entry points to a home. The dangling ropes must be spaced no farther than six inches apart to effectively capture ghosts. Apparently, it's working really well -- just look at all the ghosts that have been snared!
