HIDDEN SECURITY RISKS TO BE AWARE OF

• Door is unlocked - garage, shed and conservatory doors should be locked regardless of where you live

• Valuable items seen through the window - valuable items on display can entice intruders

• Rubbish - boxes for expensive items, such as tech, in recycling areas can give a lot away

• A key under a doormat - it's an easy find like setting a password as 1234

• Having an alarm system in line of sight - this means burglars can see if it's activated

• Curtains left half open - letting people see into your home and who’s there or not?

• Post piled up in the letterbox - this could signal an unoccupied property

• Ladder in the garden - building materials such as ladders can easily be used to smash or reach windows.

• Window open - no matter how high, they are often easy to jimmy open if left unlocked or ajar

• No car in driveway - it's evident somebody hasn't come home if a thief is watching the property, or similarly if a car hasn’t been moved for some time.

The puzzle features a sleeping bat hidden among an assortment of tools and whilst providing a bit of fun, it also has a serious message about the importance of bats and ensuring they are protected if they decide to pay a visit to your home. 

'Bats often go unnoticed when they roost in lofts, basements, garages and external parts of buildings, but occasionally they accidentally stray into the living spaces of homes and workplaces,' commented Dr Joe Nunez-Mino, Director of Communications & Fundraising at the Bat Conservation Trust.

'Sometimes in the summer, young bats, which are inexperienced flyers, will become exhausted before finding their way out.'

'They may try to land on a wall or curtains, or they may crash land on furniture or the floor. If you do happen to find a bat has landed inside or around your property, then it is probably in need of some help.'
