Many bugs are beginning to appear "mysteriously" inside homes and businesses.
Most are ladybugs, cluster flies/face flies, yellow jackets or paper wasps (queens), stink bugs, or leaf-footed (seed) bugs.
These critters actually gained entry last fall through cracks and openings and spent the winter hibernating in attics, soffits, wall voids, window/door casings, and protected areas. With the onset of warmer weather, the insects have again become active and are emerging from their overwintering sites. As they attempt to escape to their natural habitat outdoors, some inadvertently disperse inward into living areas, emerging from beneath baseboards, behind window and door frames, from sash-cord openings and around light fixtures and ventilators. Since many insects are attracted to light, they are often seen around windows and lighting fixtures.
