Tips for Securing your Home

Secure compost piles, and monitor the rations of green to brown materials to prevent odors.

Keep exterior doors closed and locked when not in use.

Do not store food in screened enclosures.

Do not leave outdoor grills unattended when in use and clean thoroughly afterward. If possible, store grills in a sturdy shed or garage.

Never leave scented items inside your vehicle- this includes both food and non-food items such as lip balm, coolers, and air fresheners.

Cover possible entryways with hardware cloth to prevent squirrels, bats and other wildlife from entering your home.
