What’s the one thing you don’t want to leave just lying around outside? Ladders
Be mindful when doing home repairs outside your house. Do not leave any home repair equipment, especially ladders, lying around. When doing any yard or house work, store the equipment as soon as you’re finished. You won’t ussualy find a theif carrying their own ladder but ladders left lying out in a yard can be used to reach the upper windows that usually have less security Leaving a ladder around outside is like putting a welcome mat out for any burglars. These thieves will ALWAYS look for the houses that make it easier for them to gain access to your house. And never leave a ladder that can be used to access the roof in an unlocked shed.
