  • Ray Ridlen: The Fab Four of Home Invaders

    Published: Sat, Oct 18, 2014

    As the days grow shorter and the nights colder, a certain cadre of insects slowly and methodically makes its way to our houses. These insects spend the winter as adults, and it is critical to their well-being that their little bodies don’t freeze. This is called overwintering. They gravitate to the south and west sides of many homes because these are the warmest sides of the building. They crawl upward until they can find a tiny crack or crevice to squeeze into. Some end up in your living area. Other unlucky ones attempt to spend the winter under a piece of siding or corner molding. They go to sleep, never to wake again. Others are more successful and end up in the wall cavity between the outside and the inside wall.
