Why do bugs come inside? Why can they not stay outside?


The pests are invading my home and I am getting tired of trying to get rid of them the natural way. They do not get the message but keep returning.

    When they are in the dry sinks they leave fast when the water turns on. I even see them in toilets not near water. I see different ones all year. Hot weather, cold weather in between.

    I keep the storm windows down all year (it is a rented house). They can get in other ways but what I want to know is why. The outside has what they want.

    I know how they get in Sheila: I food shop once@mo., get mail every 4 days, have no pets. I wonder why they do. What they want is outside. Except for ants (which I have taken care of) none go for food. (?) I rarely have stinkbugs, what I have most...
