Before you can fix the problem and keep them out, you need to identify the pest. There are numerous occasional invaders, including earwigs, crickets, beetles, silverfish, ladybugs, and spiders. Remember that these pests aren’t dangerous. They’re likely trying to pass through and make it to the other side.
Reasons For Occasional Invaders
There is no specific reason occasional invaders have entered your home. It depends on the species. For instance, some will slip through small gaps and enter your home because they’re searching for food. Others may be looking for shelter.
Occasional Invader Health Hazards
Although you shouldn’t ignore the pest, most of them are not physically dangerous. However, it is vital to understand that the health hazards often depend on the species. Some may bite but most do not. Don’t approach occasional invaders until you’re positive that you’re dealing with one of the harmless species.
Removing Occasional Invaders From Your Home
The term occasional invader is a broad term used to describe a handful of species. With that being said, you can’t develop a solution to the problem until you know what species you’re dealing with. Some techniques are effective against spiders, but some are not. Others are better for dealing with centipedes. It is pertinent to identify the species. Once you know which species you have, you can begin working to develop a solution. Using a vacuum cleaner to get rid of them is wise. Just make sure that you dispose of the contents away from your home.
