When that changes, and it will, everyone will want to be in-doors. The list of house guests could range from creepy insects to cagey rodents .
Here are a collection of animals and insects we wish would stay outside but will most likely make their way into your home as the temperatures drop. Apparently they don't want to be outside either.
In recent weeks my girlfriend has freaked out more and more often. Not because I did something wrong, which was my first thought.

What's up with this insect invasion?
There are several steps that you can take to limit the number of unwanted pests and guests this winter but it is most likely that some will get in, no matter what you do. Here are some suggestions from Pest Authority.
