Many people assume that the high risk time for home burglaries is the middle of the night and of course some burglaries do take place then but there tend to be more burglaries during the day.
Why is this? Well, if you think about it, that is when more homes are left unoccupied. Burglars can break in and ransack the place without the fear of disturbing the owner.
Any tell-tale sign that you are away from home, like leaving curtains drawn, can be an invitation to burglars. So, are you giving potential burglars a clue that you are away from home? If you are then don’t be surprised if you come home to a nasty surprise.
