You're lucky if you can find out EXACTLY where those buggers are coming from.  I've pretty much figured this out and set up traps for the appropriate places.  The only kind of unwelcome visitors I get anymore are spiders.  Since there's virtually no bugs for them to drink blood from guess who they attack?  Hatred

Back when I lived with my folks I used to get elm beetles a lot in my bedroom.  They'd come off the tree in my neighbor's yard and get in through the cracks in my ceiling.  They were CRAZY about light and would fly around the light bulb.  You could hold a piece of tape up near the light bulb and they would eventually run into it.

Photobucket sucks.  Pass it on.

I put ant baits outside every door, and then mopped the floor and the doorsills many times with bleach to kill their chemical trails.   No more ants after 3 days.

We've got those Japanese Beetles, the ones that look like lady bugs.  A few always manage to get in the house.  Last night one of them was in the blinds, which are aluminum.  He make quite a little noise flapping his wings against those things.  Twice in two days I walked into the kitchen and one of them fell off the ceiling and landed on my head.  My hair must look like a nice place to set up ladybug housekeeping? 

Odd you should mention that.  My parents, who have several flowers and a garden in their backyard, had a LOT Of problems with Japanese Beetles over the summer, so they went and bought three of those bag/trap things.  Dunno how the work exactly, but the beetles fly into the bag, and then fall into and are somehow unable to fly back up and out (chemicals in the bag maybe?  Dunno.)  Anyway, within just a few days TWO of the bags were nearly HALF FULL (we're talking LOTS of beetles here.)
