Nuisance insects appearing in homes during spring less, although they can be annoy- ing, especially when a lot of them are present. Here are a few things to keep in mind when dealing with these insects. First, it is important to know that these insects are not reproduc- ing indoors. Because they emerge from their hiding places period- ically throughout the winter and early spring, it appears they are laying eggs and their offspring are By JaneUe Daberkow, O of M Extension Extension Entomologist Jef- frey Hahn has some tips for home- owners dealing with nuisance pests this spring.

In fact, all of the insects you see now entered your home last fall. They hibernate in balls or clusters in wall voids, attics, and similar areas. As the temperatures warm, the insects in the outer lay- ers become active first and then emerge into the living quarters of the home, explaining why they do not all become active at the same time. Because these insects are emerging from hidden sites, it is not practical to treat them to pre- vent their emergence. Once they are out in the open, your best bet in dealing with them is physi- cal removal, such as vacuuming. Eventually, all of these overwinter- ing insects will become active and move away from their overwin- tering sites. Fortunately, for those trapped in homes, they are short- lived. To minimize these kinds of problems in the future, it is impor- tant to treat these insects in the fall as they are first trying to enter your home. This is a two-pronged approach. First, it is important to inspect the outside of the home during summer and seal spaces and gaps that may be used by these insects to get inside. This should be followed up with an insecticide application in the fall -just as these insects are trying to get inside. This insecticide application is typ- ically applied to the outer perim- eter of the home. It is not possi- ble to prevent all nuisance insects from entering into a home; but you can reduce the number that do, causing fewer problems later dur- ing the winter and spring.
