T
he Glencoe Public Library fall
activities, programs and materi-
als continue and will merge into
winter services for all patrons.
“1,000 Books Before Kindergarten,”
a read-to-your-child program, continues
for families to meet the challenge and
give the opportunity to their little ones.
The children listen to books; parents
record the books read, and bring each
100-book increment to the library and
receive a little prize. The tally adds up
fast! This program is a collaboration
among Glencoe ECFE, Glencoe-Silver
Lake School District, Brownton and
Glencoe Public Libraries.
The Glencoe Library has continuing
services with new books and many mag-
azines to read, audiobooks to listen to,
Wi-Fi, and computers to use for social
interests and research.
If there is a book one would like to
read, ask a librarian to request the book
for you if it is not on the shelf. Glencoe
Library is part of Pioneerland Library
System, which offers not only printed
books, but e-books as well. For more in-
formation, go to the library website:
www.glencoepubliclibrary.webs.com.
Mondays, Nov. 5, Nov. 19 and Nov.
26, the Glencoe Library will be holding
a senior computer class from 10 a.m. to
11 a.m. The class will provide partici-
pants with hands on knowledge and
tasks to use the computer, internet, and
search practice. This is a beginner class
for senior adults who have not used a
computer or know very little about using
a computer. Call the library if you wish
to register. There is no charge for the
computer class. The computer lab will
be closed to the public for that class
hour.
New to the Glencoe Library is the li-
brary activity room which was renovated
with the funds of a trust from Geraldine
Tews, a long-time Glencoe resident.
The room, located on the east side of
the library, is finished and ready to use
for library programs.
On Friday, Nov. 23 from 11:30 a.m.
to 12:30 p.m. Frederick Blanch, a Min-
nesota author, will speak and share sto-
ries from his book “Last Words.” The
public is invited and the program is free.
On Saturday, Dec. 1, is the kickoff of
Glencoe Holly Days. The Glencoe Library
will host “An Elf Workshop” from 10
a.m. to 11:30 a.m. for families to get
ready for the holidays. This family pro-
gram is free, but we ask the children to
bring a new, unwrapped toy donation for
McLeod County children in need
through the Toy Drive held each Christ-
mas.

I
t is colorless, odorless and the No.
1 cause of accidental poisoning in
the United States. And, it worsens
in the winter.
Known as the “silent killer,” carbon
monoxide (CO) is responsible for an av-
erage of 450 deaths and 20,000
emergency room visits each year,
according to the Journal of the
American Medical Association.
With more than two-fifths of all CO
poisonings occurring between De-
cember and February, homeowners
are at increased risk once temper-
atures begin to drop.
“During the winter months,
many families turn to heating
sources they might not use at
other times of the year,” says Deb-
orah Hanson, director of external
affairs for First Alert.
“While these heating sources
may be effective at providing
warmth, they also can pose great
risks if not used properly. To help
protect loved ones from the dan-
gers of CO poisoning, it is impor-
tant for homeowners to take proper
precautions when dealing with any
kind of fuel-burning heat source.”
First Alert recommends the following
tips and tools for keeping your home
and loved ones warm – and safe – this
winter and all year long:
Protect against CO poisoning
Run kitchen vents or exhaust fans any
time the stove is in use. The kitchen
stove is among the most frequent
sources of CO poisoning in the home. To
help eliminate danger of overexposure,
never use the oven to heat a home. Al-
ways run exhaust fans when cooking,
especially during the holidays when
stoves are left on for longer periods of
time. Also, open a nearby window peri-
odically when cooking to allow fresh air
to circulate.
Never use generators indoors. In the
case of a power outage, portable elec-
tricity generators must be used outside
only with power brought into the struc-
ture with a cord. Never use them inside
the home, in a garage or in any confined
area that can allow CO to collect. And
be careful to follow operating instruc-
tions closely. Also refrain from using
charcoal grills, camp stoves or other
similar devices indoors.
Have fuel-burning appliances in-
spected regularly. Arrange for a profes-
sional inspection of all fireplaces and
fuel-burning appliances – such as fur-
naces, stoves, clothes dryers, water
heaters and space heaters – annually to
detect any CO leaks.
Be mindful of the garage. Warming
the car in the morning before work is
common during the winter months, but
running vehicles inside an attached
garage, even if the door is open, is haz-
ardous, as CO can leak into the home.
Install/test CO alarms. Carbon monox-
ide alarms are the only way to detect
this poisonous gas in a home. For max-
imum protection, alarms should be in-
stalled on every level of the home and
near each sleeping area. Test alarm
function monthly and change batteries
every six months. In addition, alarms
should be replaced every five to seven
years to ensure proper function. If the
installation date is unknown, replace
immediately.

ide safety, visit www.firstalert.com.

T
he falling leaves and colder tem-
peratures can mean only one
thing: winter is coming.
In Minnesota, the dry, cold air and
snowy weather of winter can wreak
havoc on your vehicle.
Snow and ice limit traction, salt
causes rust and cold temperatures are
tough on the engine.
Are you prepared?
From tires to belts and hoses to flu-
ids, mechanics and car dealers in the
area agree it is a good idea to “winter-
ize” your vehicle for the season.
“I’d say the main thing is to check
your tires,” said Joe Kaczmarek, owner
of Kaz’s Auto Repair in Silver Lake.
Scott Lilienthal of Al’s Auto Sales in
Glencoe agreed tires are a main priority
in the winter months. “Don’t forget
about your tire pressure. Good tires help
vehicles get better gas mileage and are
much safer. You have to think about
safety,” he said.
Lilienthal advised checking your
owner’s manual to find the correct tire
pressure for your vehicle.
Another thing to remember when win-
terizing your vehicle is the battery. “Bat-
teries take a beating all summer, so
make sure they are charged for the win-
ter months,” Kaczmarek said.
Cold temperatures can reduce a vehi-
cle’s battery power by up to 50 percent.
“Also, make sure the posts and connec-
tions are not corroded,” he said.
If the posts are corroded, you can
clean them with baking soda, water, and
a small wire brush.
Harlan Wawrzyniak, owner of Harlan’s
Auto Repair in Silver Lake, said it’s im-
portant to also check the belts and
hoses in vehicles before the colder tem-
peratures set in.
“A good tune up is advisable for the
winter. Make sure your mechanic
checks spark plugs and fuel filters,
too,” he added.
Visibility is another as-
pect to consider in win-
ter driving, especially
with the increase in
precipitation and salt
build-up.
“Checking and re-
placing the wiper
blades of your vehicle
is just as important
when getting ready
for the winter. Espe-
cially with the morn-
ing frost. What good is
a properly running vehi-
cle if you can’t see out
the windshield,” Kacz-
marek said.
The life expectancy of wiper blades is
one year, so replace them if your car’s
are older.
Wawrzyniak said headlights should
also be checked for good visibility.
“With the reduced daylight now, it’s im-
portant to make sure your headlights are
working, and that they are clean so they
work effectively,” he said.
Checking fluids also is good advice to
preparing your vehicle for the winter.
“Remember those oil changes. With the
hot weather in the summer, condensa-
tion can build up, causing water in the
oil,” Kaczmarek said.
He added that checking the coolant
levels also is important. “The main
thing is to make sure your
coolant is up to par. There are
all different kinds of coolant,
too, so make sure you have
the right coolant for the
right vehicle,” he
said.
Kaczmarek
said if the
coolant looks
dirty, bring the
vehicle in for a
coolant flush.
Wawrzyniak
said it’s also
important to
check the
transmission
fluid and
steering fluid.
“When you bring your car in for an oil
change, ask your mechanic to be sure
to check all the fluids. We have a 25-
point checklist here when we service ve-
hicles,” he said.
“And don’t forget to check the ex-
haust,” he added.
Kaczmarek also advised to keep the
gas tank over half full during the winter
months, and replace the fuel filter. “The
quality of gas varies throughout the sea-
sons, so make sure you have a good fuel
filter,” he said.
“Take care of your car,” was Lilien-
thal’s overall advice.
“Cars cost more than ever before, so
it’s important, economically, to take
care of it,” he said.
“Take care of the oil, the antifreeze,
and all other fluids. By doing so, your
vehicle will go a little longer,” he added.
So, for a check list to “winterize” your
vehicle, remember to:
• Check tire pressure and tire tread
and replace tires if needed.
• Charge the battery and clean corro-
sion on the posts.
• Check all fluids and be sure to add
correct fluids to the right vehicles.
• Check wiper blades and replace if
older than one year.
• Check headlights and clean or re-
place if needed.
• Inspect the belts and hoses.
• Check the fuel filter.
• Remember timely oil changes.
“Overall maintenance is important.
Rely on your mechanic. Trust them,”
Lilienthal said.

T
he cooling weather signals most
homeowners to retire their lawn
and garden equipment for the
year. But before you stow away the rakes
and hoes, remember that fall offers a
unique opportunity for starting projects
that can yield beautiful landscape re-
sults next year. You can save time and
potentially money by doing a few simple
projects now so when spring arrives,
your yard reaches its full potential.
Every year, a lot of time, money and
effort is devoted to the pursuit of a
beautiful and well-maintained home
landscape. According to the 2011
American Time Use Survey conducted
by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics,
Americans who dedicate time to lawn
and garden care spend on average more
than two hours a day maintaining their
outdoor spaces. While a beautiful yard
takes effort, there are ways you can bet-
ter utilize the time, money and energy
you spend on maintenance. Keep these
tips in mind when tackling the land-
scape during the cooler months:
1. Rake and pick up leaves.
If leaves are left scattered on the
lawn, grass will not grow as well in the
spring. Do not worry about removing
leaves from plant beds, as they actually
help insulate and feed plants during the
winter months.
2. Take advantage of fall planting op-
portunities.
Plant perennial flowers, ground cov-
ers, spring bulbs, trees and shrubs in
early fall so they have time to establish
strong and healthy roots. Some of the
best sales on perennials are in the fall
when greenhouses are trying to close
out their inventories.
3. Mulch plant beds.
It is important to add a layer of or-
ganic mulch to plant beds, which helps
roots get established before the ground
freezes solid. Mulch also helps to retain
soil moisture and prevent future weed
growth. Do not add mulch where iris rhi-
zomes are planted because they are
prone to rotting.
4. Maximize your equipment with ac-
cessories.
Find accessories or attachments that
enhance the equipment you already
own, such as your all-terrain vehicle.
Some ATVs can be used year round for
landscaping projects as well as snow re-
moval. With a versatile snow plow, a
homeowner can easily level, spread or
push dirt, gravel and snow anytime of
the year. Some turf-friendly, all-terrain
plows are available in six different blade
lengths, so you can find the best one for
your ATV or utility terrain vehicle. Each
blade is 14.5-inches high and has a 1-
inch thick rubber cutting edge for effi-
cient scraping no matter what project
you are taking on.
5. Clean out rain gutters.
Clogged gutters can cause water
backups that can damage your roof in
the fall, and possibly create ice dams in
the winter. It is wise to clean out rain
gutters and make sure water flows away
from walkways and driveways, which
could ice over and become hazardous in
the winter.
6. Winterize pipes.
Shut off water to all outdoor spigots
to prevent pipes from freezing. If you
have a sprinkler system, blow out the
lines so that sitting water does not
freeze and destroy the system.
7. Maintain your driveway.
If you have a tar driveway, popular in
the cities and suburbs, you might want
to consider sealing it before the cold
weather hits. Ice and snow can damage
the surface and cause cracks to expand.
If you live in a rural area, the mainte-
nance of a gravel driveway may also be
on your fall to-do list before the winter
winds start to blow.
With these simple tips, you will make
the most of fall time to create a beauti-
ful landscape setting you can enjoy
through all of next year.

P
reparing for Jack Frost’s arrival
can send a shiver down any
homeowner’s spine. A long to-do
list for getting your home ready can feel
overwhelming, leaving you wondering
where you will find
the time and re-
sources. But, with
some optimism,
easy tips and ac-
cess to a few rental
tools, you can win-
terize your home in
just one weekend,
leaving plenty of
time to enjoy au-
tumn’s splendor.
Prepare your lawn
and landscaping
Cold tempera-
tures cause grass
and other plants in
your landscape to
go dormant. Spend
a few hours prepar-
ing your lawn for
beautiful greenery next year.
Start by aerating. Renting an aerator
is a cost-effective and efficient way to
reduce thatch and provide extra space
in the soil for water and oxygen to reach
the roots. Find a local rental store near
you.
After aerating, spread a quality winter
fertilizer to give your grass the nutrients
it needs to grow strong. If you live in an
area with harsh winters, remember to
cover roses and delicate perennials so
that they are protected.
Winterize your deck
The harsh winter elements can take a
major toll on decking, so it is important
to protect it. With a little time and ef-
fort, your deck will make it through win-
ter unscathed and ready for outdoor fun
in spring.
To keep the structure’s integrity intact
and wood looking beautiful, clean and
seal your deck before winter arrives.
Start by renting a pressure washer at
your local rental store. The
trained rental associate will give
you guidance on safe and effi-
cient operation of the pressure
washer. After you clean your
deck, let it dry completely and
then apply paint or
sealant.
Trim your trees
Weak trees and
dead branches can
break and fall during
winter, possibly dam-
aging your home,
your car, a utility line,
or worse. Be a re-
sponsible homeowner
and cut weak or dead
branches in the fall so you
do not have to worry.
A chainsaw is the easiest
way to deal with dead
branches and will take
much less time than hand
sawing. You can rent a
chainsaw to cut the wood
into small logs or pieces for
disposing of properly. Chippers can also
be rented for grinding up the wood and
using it for mulch in the spring.
Seal windows and doors
When temperatures drop, the small
leaks in windows and doors become ap-
parent. Avoid a chilly house and high
energy bills by caulking your windows
and weather stripping doors.
Weather stripping is cheap and easy.
Apply the adhesive strip between the
door and frame for a tight seal that lim-
its the amount of air that enters or exits
when the door is closed. Caulking win-
dows is a simple process as well when
you have a caulk gun. If you need a tall
ladder to reach second story windows,
consider renting it since you will likely
use it infrequently. While you have the
ladder, clean your gutters of leaves and
other debris that can cause backups
and ice dams.
All you need is one weekend to pre-
pare your home and yard for the cold
weather ahead. Plus you will get to
enjoy the crisp autumn air while you get
these quick and easy chores done.

W
inter is a season where stay-
ing indoors and drinking hot
cocoa count as hobbies, but
for those looking for more adventure,
consider joining the Crow River Sno
Pro’s snowmobile club.
Founded in October of 1986, Crow
River Sno Pro’s consists of a group of
snowmobilers and snowmobile enthusi-
asts who groom and maintain over 150
miles of trails throughout McLeod
County, including the Luce Line Trail
and the Dakota Rail Trail.
The trail system touches every com-
munity in McLeod County and connects
with each bordering county.
To groom the trails, the Sno Pros use
its two new groomers: a 2012 Piston
Bully Trail Bully and a 2010 John Deere
7330 Premium tractor with Soucy
tracks.
Members also work to clear brush and
trees, as well as other hazards, from the
trails. In December, the Sno Pros
cleaned over 12 miles of trail in five
days on the Dakota Rail Trail.
Not only is the club active in the win-
ter months, but it is participating and

F
all is here, and with it comes two
common sights — farmers
busily harvesting soybeans
and corn, and orange-clad hunters
in fields and woods tracking deer,
pheasants, ducks, geese and other
prey.
Hunting was once a male-domi-
nated sport, but that isn’t the case
any more, says Janette Goettl of
rural Brownton.
An avid hunter, Goettl also is
certified as a gun and hunting
safety trainer, as well as a bow-
hunting trainer, by the Minnesota
Department of Natural Resources.
Each spring, Goettl offers classes
in both, with her gun safety
classes geared specifically for
women.
Goettl wasn’t an active hunter
as a youth. Her love of hunting de-
veloped at about the age of 25,
when she was dating someone
who was an avid hunter. She has
now been hunting for about half
of her adult life.
Goettl started hunting deer and
pheasants, then goose and ducks.
Later, she added bear, antelope, elk,
coyotes and wild turkey to her hunting
activities.
Goettl took a gun safety class from
Kermit Terlinden of Glencoe, who then
encouraged her, and helped her be-
come, a certified trainer. She has been
offering classes for a dozen years now.
She began offering classes for
women, many of whom just wanted to
learn gun safety because there are
firearms in their homes.
As they become more comfortable
with firearms, many of those women
turned to hunting. Goettl said the
classes are not only about gun safety,
but have a field component in which
new hunters learn about hunting safety.
“We crawl in and out of deer stands
and blinds, so they get a taste of what
it’s like to be out in the field,” said
Goettl.
Goettl’s classes attract not just
women, but younger girls.
“We’ve been adding more moms and
daughters. Hunting lets them do some-
thing together, just like fathers and
sons.”
In fact, said Goettl, hunting has be-
come a family-oriented sport.
“It’s become a family thing,” said
Goettl. Husbands and fathers, in fact,
will sign up their wives and daughters
for her classes, indicating that males
are welcoming their female counterparts
to the once male-dominated sport.
And women are taking to the sport,
especially when they discover they don’t
need to be big and brawny to hunt.
“Anyone can shoot a gun,” said
Goettl. “It doesn’t matter how big you
are, as long as you have a gun you’re
comfortable with.”
The same goes for bows. And
once a deer or other large animal
is shot, most hunters are willing to
help each other in getting it out of
the field.
Goettl said there is much to be
enjoyed in hunting. When she first
started hunting herself, the joy was
in harvesting a deer or pheasant.
Now, she said, what is most en-
joyable is getting outside.
“It’s peaceful,” said Goettl. “You
get away from the crazy life you
lead. You see birds and squirrels
and you can watch the world come
to life early in the morning.”
Goettl stresses one important
thing about hunting, though —
sign up early for gun safety
classes. Although there are some
fall courses, many classes are of-
fered in the spring, because in-
structors also are hunters who want
to be out in the fields themselves
in the fall. People shouldn’t call
an instructor a week before the
hunting season opens and expect
to get a certificate, Goettl said.
Hunters also can take on-line
courses, but that isn’t something Goettl
advocates. She feels strongly that per-
sonal, hands-on classes offer the most
for new hunters.
The Minnesota DNR’s website lists
classes and instructors by county. To

Hunting is becoming more of a family activity

T
he crisp days of fall will soon be
here, but a long dry summer has
left many homeowners look-
ing out on lawns and gardens over-
taken with invasive weeds and
vines. A yard full of these noxious
plants is sure to make it difficult to
enjoy the cooler outdoor tempera-
tures.
In 2012, the nation faced one of
the hottest summers on record in
the last 60 years. With more than
two thirds of the country experienc-
ing severe to extreme drought, con-
ditions were ideal for pesky weeds
to flourish.
Weeds like dandelions, crabgrass
and clover easily tolerate hot tem-
peratures and dry soil, overtaking
lawns and gardens and lingering
throughout the cooler fall months.
Ivy and other aggressive vines thrive
in the summer heat, climbing and
covering bushes and trees and ulti-
mately killing the plants underneath
with their shade.
Left untreated, invasive plants
can quickly become health and
safety hazards. Kudzu can grow up
to a foot per day, causing tree limbs
to break under its weight, damaging
homes and outdoor living spaces.
Common grass weeds like nettles and
thistles sting and prick the skin, and
contact with dangerous plants like poi-
son oak, ivy and sumac cause moderate
to severe allergic reactions in almost all
people.
“Fall herbicide treatments are the
most effective way to eliminate unat-
tractive and potentially harmful plants
from lawns and gardens so that those
spaces can be enjoyed throughout the
cool fall months,” says Aaron Hobbs,
president of RISE (Responsible Industry
for a Sound Environment), a national or-
ganization representing the manufactur-
ers, formulators and distributors of pes-
ticide and fertilizer products.
“This is the best time of year to elim-
inate invasive plants,” Hobbs
adds. “Weeds move the products
of photosynthesis like water, glu-
cose and oxygen to their roots for
winter food storage in the fall,
enabling the roots to soak up
herbicides as well.” Two to three
treatments are usually all that is
needed to completely destroy
these types of plants.
Effective herbicide options
exist for every type of weed and
vine. The Environmental Protec-
tion Agency rigorously tests her-
bicides for potential human
health and environmental im-
pact before they can be regis-
tered and sold for use. As with
all pesticides, users should al-
ways read labels and use and
store products accordingly.
With just one or two follow-up
treatments after an initial fall
herbicide application, invasive
plants are eradicated at the root,
and people can take back their
lawns and gardens to enjoy the
beauty of fall.

W
hen cold winds blow, it can be
tricky to keep different rooms
throughout your home at the
right temperature – especially if you
have old and drafty windows, tight
spaces or room additions to work
around. It can also be challenging to en-
sure economical comfort without having
to do a major heating system overhaul.
Yet there are easy and flexible ways to
heat your home in areas where it needs
it most and still stay comfortable all
winter long.
Odd-shaped rooms in older homes,
additions such as sunrooms and bonus
rooms, and far-flung spaces like remod-
eled basements and attics can pose a
heating challenge. In addition, some
homes have no ductwork heating sys-
tem, making it impractical or expensive
to consider installing one to heat such
spaces. If this sounds like your house,
consider these tips to keep your home
warm this winter.
Go ductless with room-by-room heating
A ductless heating system can provide
comfort where you want it, when you
want it. For example, certain companies
offer ductless split systems that can be
retrofitted to a house that has no duct-
work, or if the central heating system is
already at capacity. Advantages of these
systems include their small size and
flexibility for heating and cooling indi-
vidual rooms.
A ductless system consists of two
simple components: an outdoor com-
pressor/condenser and one or more in-
door units that deliver heated or cooled
air. Since there is no ductwork, the
small indoor unit can be mounted on
most interior walls. Mini Split Models
have one outdoor unit and one indoor
unit. Multi Split Models can have up to
five indoor units connected to one out-
door unit, for heating rooms both effi-
ciently and economically. Each unit is
also individually controlled, for room-by-
room comfort.
Add warmth with a gas stove or fire-
place
Another option to consider is an indi-
vidual heating unit, such as a gas stove.
This can be a great solution for a hard-
to-heat space, such as a porch con-
verted to a year-round room. These
stoves give off all the warmth and glow
of a traditional wood burning fireplace
or stove, and can keep an entire room
comfortable in the coldest months of
the year, even if they are the room’s only
heat source. Simply turn the flame on
or off with a button, or set it to ignite
only when the room reaches a preset
temperature. Another consideration is a
gas fireplace insert to efficiently heat
your existing fireplace, a good solution
in a basement or added family room.
Keep hot air in and cold air out
Some simple repairs around the
house can also ensure you are not wast-
ing precious heat. For example, older
windows can let heated air escape. If
you can not replace your windows with
more energy-efficient ones, improve the
performance of the ones you have.
Some ideas from the U.S. Department
of Energy include using a heavy duty
clear plastic sheet on a frame or taping
clear plastic from the inside of the win-
dow to reduce drafts; installing tight fit-
ting, insulating window shades; and
opening curtains and shades in the day-
time to let in warming sunlight. You can
also reduce heat loss by up to 50 per-
cent by installing exterior or interior
storm windows.
There are no excuses for being cold
this winter. Use these tips to keep Old
Man Winter and his frosty breath at bay.

ool weather signals homeowners
to finalize outdoor chores and
cozy up for the long winter
ahead. It also signals pesky insects to
head indoors seeking food sources and
warm, safe places to hibernate. What
can the smart homeowner do?
Experts say the record-breaking sum-
mer heat has created a bumper crop of
bugs. Ohio State University entomolo-
gist David Denlinger predicts, “If the
warmth stays into the fall, insects will
continue to do well until frost comes.”
Home Invaders
Unwelcome invasive
pests like silverfish, spi-
ders, earwigs, flies and
ants are typical party
crashers once tempera-
tures fall.
In the late 1990s a
new pest appeared on the
scene: the brown mar-
morated stink bug. First
spotted in Pennsylvania,
stink bugs are now in 38
states, destroying gar-
dens and landscapes and
overwintering in homes.
“In September and Oc-
tober when plants are
harvested and food
sources dry up, stink
bugs switch gears and seek shelter in-
doors,” says Dr. Qing-He Zhang, lead
scientist and director of research at
Sterling International. “It’s important to
break the lifecycle now so they don’t
survive over the winter months and at-
tack your garden and landscape in
spring.”
To protect your home from unwanted
pests, industry experts share these sim-
ple eco-friendly tips to keep pesky in-
sects at bay.
1. Clean up brush and keep mulch
and firewood piles away from the house
to avoid creating habitats for critters
and insects.
2. Seal cracks, crevices and holes
with caulk or weather stripping around
potential entry points and seal around
pipes and utilities. Re-
pair loose roof tiles and
screens. Inspect win-
dows and basement
foundations and repair
loose and crumbling
mortar.
3. Clean cupboard
shelves of loose grain,
starch-based and sug-
ary food and place food
in sealed containers or
plastic bags.
4. Check where stink
bugs hide: warm, dark
spaces like baseboards,
exhaust fans, ceiling
tiles and drapes. Pick
stink bugs off by hand with a tissue and
flush them down a toilet or drop into a
bucket of soapy water. If you vacuum,
be warned. When threatened, stink bugs
emit a foul odor so dispose of the bags
immediately.
New traps help battle stink bugs with-
out the need to touch them. Zhang ex-
plains, “Once you see the bugs clinging
to the side of the house or screens, this
is a signal that they are ready to get in-
doors to hibernate and more may be
coming towards the home. A stink bug
trap uses non-toxic pheromone attrac-
tants that lure stink bugs from a radius
of 30 feet, intercepting them before
they reach the house.”
A stink bug trap can also be used in-
doors with an LED light attachment. It
works best when stink bugs start waking
up from hibernation - usually January
through April.
5. If ants are your problem, try herbs.
Briscoe White, herb expert and owner of
The Growers Exchange, says bay leaves,
cinnamon and cloves repel ants out-
doors and indoors. Sprinkle dry crushed
herbs around points of entry, cabinets
and windowsills to create a natural bar-
rier. Plus, peppermint and spearmint
are excellent deterrents against both
ants and moths.

rescue.com for how-to videos, info and

Eco-friendly tips to protect homes from pesky bugs
Placing traps outside in your landscape can help ensure
stink bugs never make it inside your home.
In the fall, traps close to your home will intercept stink bugs.

T
he arrival of autumn signals
many changes in the household,
from switching from salads to
soups to pulling sweaters out of storage
to changing furnace filters. With pets,
however, you may need to think as
much about what you do not change as
what you do.
Chicago veterinarian Dr. Shelly Rubin
is well acquainted with the dramatic
temperature swings that accompany the
change of seasons, as well as how to
help pets and owners cope with them.
Following is his list of fall do’s and
don’ts for pet owners.
• Don’t ‘fall’ off the exercise wagon.
With days getting shorter – and cooler –
it can be tempting to skip your early
morning or evening walk. But with more
than half of all pets in the U.S. being
overweight or obese, exercise is vital. A
daily walk, or several shorter walks, can
rev the metabolism of both two- and
four-legged walkers for hours.
• Do ensure your pet is outfitted for
cooler weather. Small, light-bodied
breeds, dogs with very short hair and
older dogs with weakened immune sys-
tems are likely to need a sweater when
venturing outside. And once cold and
snowy weather sets in, dogs may require
protective footwear to keep their paw
pads from freezing.
• Do not assume that cooler weather
eliminates the threat of diseases like
heartworm, which are spread by infected
mosquitoes. Mosquitoes have been
known to survive well into the winter
months, thanks to indoor havens and
protected microclimates existing within
larger, cooler climate zones. For this
reason, the American Heartworm Soci-
ety recommends year-round heartworm
protection for both dogs and cats.
• Do ensure your senior pet has a warm,
draft-free place to sleep. Many older dogs
and cats suffer from arthritis. Just as
sore joints in people tend to feel worse
in cold weather, so it is with pets. A
warm cozy bed can make nights – and
mornings – more comfortable.
• Do be sensitive to your pets’
feelings if fall brings changes to
your household. Just like people,
pets can get depressed. And if
you are missing a son or daugh-
ter who has moved away to start
college or a job, chances are
your family pet is also feeling
the loss. Spending time with
your pet and giving him an extra
measure of cuddling and affec-
tion will help both of you feel
better.
Should you ‘winterize’ your pet?

Arlington Market will again be processing deer this
year. Taking trim and whole carcass, without the hide. No
skinning will be done.
We are able to do all your favorites: summer sausage,
snack sticks, jerkys, hot dogs, brats, breakfast links, and
we even have some new sausage recipes for you to try. Last
year we averaged a 10-day turn over and hope to do the
same this year.
In our store we also carry
a wide variety of sausage
seasoning, jerky spices,
casings and marinades for
the do-it-your-selfers.
