What benefit do squirrels get from licking outdoor window screens in the winter? I've lived in my home in Westerville for over 20 years, and this year for the first time I have observed squirrels in late winter climbing all over the outdoor screens of my porch and furiously licking the screens for several minutes at a time. A search on YouTube has shown me several videos of other home owners who have experienced this, but nowhere can I find an explanation for this behavior. Can anyone enlighten me? Many thanks, Hyla.

What is a bromiliad? I may have spelled it incorrectly but I have a flowering plant that has a pink blossom. I have had it for several years and this is the first time it's bloomed. I think it's a bromilad or a word similar to that. I has green leaves with the flower in the center. Help me, please.

Thanks. That is a relief, at least until I look up to see how damaging the White Spotted Sawyer Beetle is. I still have the beetle, and at last look was still alive. - Harold

El Paso County landslide issues

I'm house hunting in El Paso County. How concerned should I be about possible landsides destroying or doing major damage to a property I might buy. I have the Colorado Springs interactive map from the Colorado Geological Survey. Should I just avoid areas with potential slides? That cuts out a lot of otherwise desirable property.

Husk of black walnuts

Is it safe to eat the green husk of black walnuts? The smell of it is pungent like a lime or lemon, so I figured it might taste good.
