Occasional Invaders

Occasional Invader Identification Guide Across the Mid West and East Coast

What Are Occasional Invaders?

As their descriptive name states, occasional invaders are those pests that live most of their lives outside and away from people. However, during certain periods of the year, while escaping bad weather or while searching for food or moisture, they “occasionally” move into our homes or businesses.

Insects in our area that we call occasional invaders include:

  • Silverfish
  • Earwigs
  • Weevils
  • Japanese beetles
  • House centipedes
  • Springtails

Why Do I Have an Occasional Invader Problem?

Many occasional invaders move indoors when the environment outside does not suit them. High moisture needs often drive these insects indoors when the soil outside becomes too dry. They may also move inside if it becomes too cold or rainy. Common entry points for occasional invaders include spaces under sliding doors or basements doors, torn screens, chimneys, gaps in the foundation, damaged siding, and vents.

Are Occasional Invaders Dangerous?

Occasional invaders are neither a threat to people nor our property. However, they do migrate inside in large numbers, are annoying to deal with, and are difficult to eliminate. Though not considered dangerous, having large groups of insects living in your home is not ideal. Any pest can introduce bacteria into your home that they are carrying on their body or legs.

Occasional invaders are also known for staining walls, floors, upholstered furniture, and curtains with their excrement. Depending on the insect, they may damage books, houseplants, or contaminate dry goods stored in the pantry or kitchen.
