What Can You Do to Prevent Rats, Mice and Mosquitoes from Invading Your Home?

Hi

Thanks for all the useful information. I was wondering if having a cat is sufficient to keep rats and mice out of the house/garden. Also, is it a bad idea to sleep with windows and doors open (no screens)? I've only lived in Southern California for 2 years and had the impression that there were hardly any mosquitoes here, compared to where I'm from (Belgium), and I didn't know the ones that are here are so dangerous. I have seen lots of mosquito hawks (at least, that's what my husband calls them) here. Are they a good prevention?
