3 Fall Bugs to Look Out for in Georgia

When the leaves begin to fall, the bugs begin to crawl…into your house. With cool weather approaching quickly, certain bugs will begin searching for ways to escape the cold and seek shelter inside your home. But don’t worry! Here are three fall bugs to be on the lookout for in Georgia. 

Ladybugs 

While ladybugs are not a threat, they can be such a nuisance. Oftentimes ladybugs will show up in large numbers to avoid the cold. 

The best way to take care of them is to make sure that all entryways are sealed and vacuum them up if they are already present. For more tips on removing ladybugs from your home, click here. 

Stink Bugs 

Stink bugs are another one of those little critters that mean no harm but can be such a bother. These cold-weather insects love to sneak into your home to warm up and will leave a rancid smell if threatened or squished. Here are some pro tips on how to get rid of stink bugs. 

Boxelder Bugs 

These bugs are black in color with a red line down their backs. They feed on boxelder trees and maple trees, but during the cooler months, they like to find shelter indoors. How do you make sure these critters don’t end up in your home?  You can use similar methods to how you get rid of ladybugs and stink bugs. Vacuum, treat, and seal!
