What else can be done?
  • Keep lawns mowed and edges trimmed.
  • Clear brush, leaf litter, and tall grass around the house, and at the edges of gardens and stone walls.
  • Stack woodpiles neatly away from the house and preferably off the ground.
  • Clear all leaf litter (including the remains of perennials) out of the garden in the fall.
  • Keep the ground under bird feeders clean so as not to attract small animals.
  • Locate children’s swing sets and other play equipment in sunny, dry areas of the yard, away from the woods.
