While another deep dip into winter temperatures isn't out of the question, it appears spring is here to stay across Oklahoma. As we collectively wander out to the backyard to do our yearly spring cleaning, the question has popped up on social media about random balls of leaves still left on otherwise empty trees.

As much trouble as these furry critters give homeowners when it comes to attic intrusion, best practices suggest leaving their homes alone so they won't seek out a new place to crash in your insulation.

You'd be amazed how small the hole in your eaves has to be to fit a family of these.
