Welcome to today’s 1:5:10:365 Tip for becoming a better steward for our home and planet environment.

1:5:10:234 EcoTip: Ventillation screens for crawlspaces and other openings into a building must be in good repair and present to prevent rodents and other vermin from entering a building. If you suspect rodents are using an opening to enter a building, you can check by shining a black light at the opening. Mice and rats will pee when they squeeze through small openings. The urine will glow under a black light proving that they have been present.
