Got mice? The best way to get rid of rodents
There's no such thing as a minor rodent problem. When you find yourself cleaning up droppings in kitchen cabinets, throwing away boxes of cereal and listening to scurrying sounds in wall and ceiling cavities, a very serious invasion has taken place. And it can only get worse: Once established, a pair of mice can generate 200 offspring in four months. So can rats. And in addition to invading your sanctity, rodents bring fleas, ticks, lice and diseases into your home. The good news is that there are some very reliable methods you can use to rid your home of rodent pests and make sure they don't return. Many of these methods aren't pleasant, but rodents aren't a problem you can ignore or deal with lightly. Know your foe

Clematis is a versatile and beautiful vine
Clematis is the perfect plant to clamber over a fence or an arbor. Some gardeners even let clematis ramble over living trees and shrubs. Depending on what varieties are grown, bloom season for clematis could begin in early summer and continue right up until frost. Blossom colors range from white through red and blue, with all shades in between. Even after frost ends the floral show, well into fall and winter the vines are festooned with seedpods of silky, grayish threads.

Last year's event was unbelievable -- more than 37,000 animals' lives were saved through the hard work and dedication of more than 2,400 animal organizations around the globe.
