When these nights start to turn chilly, bugs start looking for a warm place to spend the winter. Adjust your adjustable door thresholds so that you can just pull out strips of paper with a bit of effort. On storm doors check the adjustable sweep to make sure it runs into the threshold.

Spread perimeter insecticide around your foundation on the outside.

If it is not a bad month I manage to unscrew the hoses from the bibs and switch the thermostat from cool to heat. The thermostat is usually after freezing my *** off for one night.

Switch the heat pump remote from A/C to heat.

Shut off the water to the barn, drain the pipes, and pour RV antifreeze in the traps.
