Most likely everyone has had a visitor every winter, but it’s not your typical house guest; it hides in walls and corners of your house. Creepy crawlies like house spiders, lacewings, and flies…are you sure you are ready to face them once again? Here’s what you should look for:
The seven-spot ladybug may be known as a gardener’s favorite for keeping aphids away, but adults are active up until November, when it usually starts to get colder. These insects move into homes and outbuildings to hibernate over the winter. They are often found clustered together for warmth.
When it comes to house spiders, males are present all-year round, but they are spotted more during this time of the year. They prowl, appearing in search for female spiders living in corners.
The nocturnal silverfish seeks out and prefers staying in the damp areas around the house. It’s fast-moving and can cause an issue when there is a large number of them.
Just like a silverfish, a common woodlouse also loves to stay in dark and damp areas during the winter. When looking for them, be sure to check your bathroom floor, areas around sinks, basements, and anywhere else that may be dark and damp.
The adult common green lacewing hibernates mostly in buildings. It changes its color during winter from a shade of green or blue to a yellowish-brown color with red spots.
