      Norfolk, Va. — Now that Memorial Day is just a memory and the summer
      season is upon us, we human beings aren’t the only ones whose
      activities are on the spike. Warm weather means that insects, rodents,
      raccoons, and other urban wildlife are on the move, occasionally—and
      unwittingly—invading our homes and yards. Too often, people rush out to
      purchase chemical repellents and poisons (to the tune of $5 billion
      every year!) without realizing that these concoctions are both
      dangerous—especially to children and companion animals—and ineffective.
      The unwanted "guests" will keep returning as long as conditions remain
      hospitable to them. That’s why PETA has added a brand-new feature to
      its Web site HelpingWildlife.com that offers safe, effective, and
      humane tips on keeping your house "pest"-free.

      The following is a sample of some of the valuable information that
      you’ll find on http://HelpingWildlife.com:

      * How to use certain foods and spices to keep ants out of your kitchen
      * Why properly pruning trees and shrubs makes it nearly impossible for
      a raccoon family to take up residence in your attic
      * How wearing certain colors of clothing while gardening will make you
      virtually invisible to pesky wasps
      * How to outsmart resourceful cockroaches by using catnip, garlic, and
      other harmless items
      * How to brew up a simple potion that repels mice in places that can’t
      be rodent-proofed easily

      "Using toxic chemicals to rid your home and yard of unwanted animal
      ‘guests’ is not only cruel but also dangerous and ineffective," says
      PETA Wildlife Biologist Stephanie Boyles. "Our time-proven tips for
      discouraging insects and other animals from entering your home in the
      first place provide a solution that everyone can live with."
