If you have screens for your windows and think it's time to take them down in preparation for the winter months, you might want to keep them up a little longer. One of the easiest ways to prevent insects from coming into your home as they seek warmer places to avoid the cold outside is by leaving window screens in place a little longer. A screen on your window provides an extra barrier that can keep pests outdoors. After the first few frosts, you can take out the screens and store them until the warmer months.
