What kind of pests are enjoying your house right now?


I have been in my house for 6 years and this has been the worst year for wasps for me, likely due to the mild Winter this past year. Wasps are making nests on the insides of windows, in the corner of storm windows. One window even had two nests.

    Wow! That makes me glad I live 39 degrees North Latitude! That's a few too many BOLD critters for me. :-) Thank you for sharing.

    I had that problem when I lived in a townhouse without a back storm door. I think I bought two ant traps for the year that I was there and had a problem. I will check out your hub. Thank you. :-)

    The first year I was in this house I had spiders, rather tame. I sometimes get crickets, but my female cat likes to play with (harass and catch) them so I let her handle things with that. In the Winter we have had stink bugs in the house.

    Try setting a trap for the yellow jackets. We got ours all under control with a simple soda bottle trap. I made a hub on it if you want to check it out...

    I find I handle stink bugs in a similar way. They scared the life out of me the first time one did a Kamikaze dive right near my head when I first moved to this area about 7 years ago.
