Residents of Louisville are likely going to encounter pests at some point. Some pests want to invade your home and stay there for a long time, but others do not. Some pests are only passing through. Others are searching for food or warmth. If the pest enters occasionally and leaves, it may fit into the occasional invader category. These pests are often found in basements, tubs, crawlspaces, and showers. They generally do not want to stay in your home. Instead, they want to get in and out. They have no intention of breeding and establishing a nest in your home.
Several pests fit into the occasional invader category. Some of the most common occasional invaders include centipedes, earwigs, crickets, beetles, silverfish, ladybugs, spiders, and pillbugs. Most are harmless but you’ll still want to get rid of them.
Occasional invaders can enter a residential dwelling for one reason or another. However, you can rest assured knowing that they’re not entering your home to build nests or bite you. Instead, they’re interested in finding food or water. They may also need to find shelter.

You’re likely worried about the dangers involved. After all, you’ve heard about some pests biting and spreading serious illnesses. Therefore, you’re worried that the occasional invaders are going to be dangerous too. Thankfully, these pests generally aren’t dangerous. The majority of occasional invaders are not dangerous and they do not spread illnesses. They will be a nuisance but they shouldn’t be a danger.
