    Summer is near and opportunistic burglars are taking their chances when the home owners are on vacation, that’s for sure. In order to deter burglars I use light timers during the night and burglar deterrent CD (from http://www.webensource/burglar_deterrent_cd ) with pre-recorded household noises. Worked ok so far.
