As you’ve likely guessed from the name, occasional invaders are pests that enter your residence occasionally. They prefer staying outside but they can enter homes for a handful of reasons, including searching for food, looking for warmth, or trying to get to the other side. Although it depends on the pest in question, occasional invaders can be found around showers, bathtubs, and under sinks. Most of them are not dangerous and few spread diseases. In Chicago, you’re likely going to encounter pillbugs, crickets, centipedes, beetles, silverfish, and spiders.
What Causes Occasional Invader Invasions?
In general, occasional invaders enter homes for several reasons. They may do so when looking for food or warmth. Alternatively, they may be trying to access the other side of your property.
What Health Risks Are Involved?
Since some pests are dangerous, people believe all of them are dangerous. Thankfully, this isn’t the case. Many pests aren’t dangerous and most occasional invaders aren’t. These pests generally do not transmit illnesses, bite, or inject venom.
