Common occasional invaders

What are occasional invaders? Some of the most common insects home and property owners get during certain times of the year. They include the following:

All of the above like to find warm places to hide inside your home and surrounding buildings at certain times of the year. Often occasional invader infestations occur in the fall or spring, but a few come out into homes and buildings during the winter.

Western finds the occasional invader hiding places

Occasional invaders are rarely a threat to humans. The one exception would be scorpions who can sting and be dangerous to people. Most of the time the problem is that these pests are a nuisance, getting into everything. Occasional invaders often are a symptom of a larger problem.

For example:

  • Silverfish are attracted to moisture. If you find silverfish in your home, consider installing a dehumidifier and repairing leaky pipes.
  • Field crickets can feed on fabric, especially soiled clothing, eating large areas and leaving holes.
  • Scorpions spend 90% of their time hidden. They may crawl into folded blankets, shoes or clothing. Their bite can be dangerous to humans.
  • Carpet beetles are often confused for bed bugs because they are very small, hide really well, but also chew up carpeting and fabrics.
  • There might be openings in foundations, walls, windows, and under doors that are allowing pests in. If they let in occasional invaders, they might let in something else.
