BUGGED BY INSECTS? LET MAMMALS GO TO BAT FOR YOU

Controlling insects, rodents and flying bugs is a perennial problem for householders. One solution is to install a redwood bat house outside, accommodating up to 30 bats.

According to the current Improvements catalog, North American bats consume over 1,000 mosquitoes, moths and beetles per night.Also effective are naturally organic "killer doughnuts" that destroy mosquito larvae when placed in standing water where the insects breed, but are harmless to humans and pets.

The catalog also offers easy-to-install garage weatherstripping that shuts out cold, bugs, rodents, dirt and water.
