Occasional invaders include many types of pests that enter your home through cracks and crevices, open windows, holes in screens and on plants. Some types include, crickets, weevils, beetles, centipedes, millipedes, earwigs, silverfish, pillbugs, slugs, stink bugs and more. These pests are generally not dangerous or destructive, just more of an annoyance.
One of the best prevention methods for most of these pests is to seal cracks and crevices in your home's walls, foundation and door and window frames. Also, try to keep decaying organic matter - from indoor plants or bathroom mold - cleaned or removed.
Hence their classification as "occasional invaders", these pests do not feed and breed inside your home, but usually mistakenly wander indoors - or take up residence for the winter. Unfortunately, though, they can be hard to eliminate without professional help.
