Frequently Asked Questions About Occasional Invaders

What are occasional invaders?

Occasional invaders are those insects that don’t typically invade human structures but generally make their way into homes or businesses either by accident or in pursuit of safe sheltering locations during unfavorable weather conditions. Occasional invaders may be a problem year-round, and it’s important to keep your property guarded against occasional invader bugs to ensure your interior and exterior areas stay pest-free.

While there are many different types of occasional invaders, centipedes, field crickets, house crickets, and tree crickets are some of the most problematic in our area.

Are occasional invaders dangerous?

Most occasional invaders aren’t dangerous beyond creating nuisance problems on your property and damaging items with their droppings. However, some occasional invaders do carry diseases, and the longer these pests are allowed on your property, the higher your risk of illness. It’s also frightening to see occasional invaders everywhere you look, which ruins your peaceful existence.

Why do I have an occasional invader problem?

Occasional invaders tend to gravitate to properties that provide plenty of access to food, water, and shelter. If your structure has lots of gaps that allow pests inside, food or drinks left out, or moisture issues, you may start experiencing problems with occasional invaders throughout the year.

Where will I find occasional invaders?

Typically, occasional elevators are outside on your property, hiding in piles of debris, woodpiles, long grass, or near trash cans and compost piles. Once they invade interior areas, you may find occasional elevators around windows and doors, in kitchens and food storage areas, or inside basements, garages, or other dark, secluded spaces.
