That reminds me of my snow spiders.mosquitoes in February!? i see one on the window outside right now and i killed one inside the house last week. we have had some frosts recently so i don't know how they've survived those.
That reminds me of my snow spiders.
The warmer weather has awakened a mid-winter surge of box elder bugs, which are really good at getting into the house. Most of them come into the basement, so I try to keep that door closed. But they fly & follow light, so if I leave the basement door open, I soon find them flying around lights upstairs. And landing on anything near the light (like me).
For some reason this year we are having to use the vacuum to get ants out of the cabinets. Some days there are not any and then all of a sudden they are all over. I almost think they are looking for water because they get on an area where I have towels with dishes drying on them.we have the boxelders, plus stinkbugs and squashbugs and then the chinese lady bugs which all want to be inside where it is warmer when the weather changes from warm to cool. and then in the off-season any time the weather warms up they come out of hiding and often are seeking moisture and light.
it's much better here now than before when i hadn't caulked a lot of gaps shut. instead of a few bugs here or there it was a constant barrage of hundreds. i'd use a small vacuum several times a day to get the bugs off the windows or whever else they were congregating.
unfortunately the way the ex-step-dad built the house he did not think about what all those cracks in the siding meant for harboring bugs and providing them with ways to get further into the house. when i did the stain on the outside of the house two falls ago i caulked shut a bunch more cracks but there's still a few left i pretty much cannot get to because i don't wish to demolish things that are already in place.

...I'll see what I can think of as the day progresses. How about you?
