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.
Inside is where the Twinkies, the garbage and other irresistible stuff is.
Some come in little cracks around screens and windows for whatever reason they have in their little bug brains. Some come in on your clothes or when you open a door and you don't even realize it. Some come in on your pets (if you have them). Then once they're inside, their bug brains aren't big enough to find their way back out. I think they like it so much (for buggy reasons) they decide to grow and multiply. I hate it too, especially the nasty stinkbugs we have here. You might be able to find some organic and safe pesticides to spray around your windows, doors, and foundation and that will deter them for a while, but you'll have to spray every so often. Unless you have stinkbugs like I do. If so, I think they're immune to everything and they're going to take over the world.
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...
Good question! I have heard they are looking for water, especially when there is a change of season. They are coming out from the winter from under the ground more so than during winter months.
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.
Toilets have water. And dry sinks will usually have water at some point. The main reason they come inside is looking for water, as I have always heard and known.
Then why do they run (or fly) away fast as soon as I turn on the water?
You may need to get the bug busters in they may be able to do something. We stuck up screens on the windows around our house but there are small bugs that can get through the screens at night time. Other than that its been okay. Good luck with your options.
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 would still seek out the exterminators for a consult. There's obviously something that we are missing. Or get the landlord to do something. I will stay following the question to learn the outcome.
The landlord says, "I'll spray the outside, you take care of the inside." I will not spray indoors. He does not do his part anyhow.
I have nothing new to add, but I am truly sorry. We used to have an ant hill in the backyard. Those ants nearly drove me crazy.

Why would a wife keep her marriage to a womanizing husband?Why would some, if not many, wives still continue living with a husband who is obviously a womanizer?
