Fall Invaders: How They Affect Your Home

Fall is a great time to enjoy a variety of outdoor activities. However, as the temperatures begin to drop, a new crop of invaders start to make their appearance – and may try to take shelter within your home.

Come fall, you may notice an abundance of stink bugs, ladybugs, and cluster flies showing up on your windows and walls. These pests are often called overwintering insects or fall invaders. And while they may seem harmless, they can do a lot of damage to your property.

  • Stink Bugs – These fall invaders take shelter in home wall voids. They feed on fruit and ornamental plants in your home. Stink bugs often spread plant diseases and can emit an unpleasant odor when threatened.
  • Ladybugs – Although ladybugs are considered to be beneficial to gardens, during the fall, they look to inhabit homes and buildings before winter comes. Unfortunately, certain types of ladybugs can cause allergic reactions and aggravate asthma in some people.
  • Cluster Flies – These flies travel in groups and like to gather on windows and warm indoor walls. When a cluster begins to form, they can multiply quickly and become a nuisance within your space.
