Why Are Occasional Invaders Infesting My New York City Apartment?

Some occasional invaders are opportunist insects. They sit idle while waiting on an opportunity to invade flats, houses, apartments, condos, townhomes, and duplexes. As previously mentioned, most occasional invaders have a purpose in mind when infiltrating buildings. The most common purpose is shelter, followed by a food supply, and last, but not least, water.

Occasional invaders access homes through small gaps, holes, cracks, and crevices. These insects search high and low to find access points into a home. If your apartment is infested, you can contribute it to an exterior-to-interior access point.

However, spiders pose a health risk to their victims when they are venomous. Occasional invader spiders are believed to be harmless, otherwise.

How Do New York City Exterminators Eradicate Occasional Invaders After A Home Infiltration?

Special precautions must be taken when exterminating occasional invaders indoors. To minimize the risks associated with short-term exposure to chemical pesticides, our exterminators request that the occupants vacate the impacted home before each treatment.

To maximize the pest control strategy, we encourage the home’s occupants to get and remain involved in the process from beginning to end. Preparing your home will definitely go a long way in speeding up and maximizing the pest control process. Preparing your home could entail clutter removal, access point sealant, and thorough vacuuming of the entire home. Vacuuming will remove live occasional invaders and their fecal matter. After each vacuum, replace the debris bag containing the live occasional invaders. You can release the insects back into the environment or eradicate them for good.

Since these insects generally do not reproduce indoors, there is little to no need for concern for eggs or larvae.
