1. Clean your vehicle thoroughly
2. Seal up any entry points
3. Use traps

4. If your car is several years old, consider getting your headlights and casings replaced.
5. Keep your windshield and headlights cleaned, for obvious reasons.
6. Reset the illumination levels of your dashboard lights and any in-car screens to low. Bright light inside makes it harder to see outside.
