No, we aren't talking about the latest Sci-Fi movie, but how to prevent our homes from being invaded by creepy crawlies.  On this episode of Talking FACS, Dr. Zach DeVries outlines a few basic steps that homeowners can take to keep out bugs when temperatures start to drop.  He shares that the fall is an ideal time to pest-proof our homes to ensure that while we are overwintering and staying warm and toasty, we aren't also keeping colonies of insects warm and dry too.
