Why Is My Home Infested With Occasional Invaders?
Occasional invader infestations are rare, but when they develop, you will know it. If your home is infested with one or more of these insect species, your pest barrier is lacking in one way or another. A pest barrier is exactly as its name entails. It puts a barrier between your home and occasional invaders.
Are Occasional Invader Infestations Dangerous?
Occasional invader insect species have not been linked to human or animal diseases or parasites. They are more of a nuisance insect than a health threat to humans or animals. Since the insect does not reproduce indoors, there is little need to be concerned about a full-blown infestation.
