As temperatures dip in the fall months, your warm and cozy home becomes a desirable place for rodents and insects. To prevent them from coming into your home, consider some nontoxic preventative measures. One is to place a screen inside your kitchen vent; this large hole is a popular entry point for insects. Also, trim weeds and overgrown plants that are near the front door of your home. These are excellent hiding places for mice, and they’ll wait to dart into your home when the front door opens.
