For some, offering treats at Halloween means leaving a big bowl of candy in a bowl by the door. But if you live in a community where there's wildlife that might wander into your yard, you might want to avoid this. A bowl of candy is too tempting for animals, and both the candy AND the wrappers can pose a hazard for them. If you must leave out a bowl, put it higher on a table and close to the door, with a light to deter animals as much as possible. Don't forget to bring it in before tucking in for the night!
