Much like Boxelder bugs, Cluster flies aren’t destructive but are annoying to a household. Cluster flies are significantly larger than a housefly. They’re commonly found in large swarms and are flying around windows, cracks in sidings, and under eaves. For cluster fly problems, you can try to seal cracks or install window screens.
Commonly found outside of your home, Stink Bugs feed on weeds, soybeans, figs, apples, and peaches. These bugs are easily recognized because of their brown shield. Moreover, when threatened, they emit foul-smelling odor. Getting rid of them is quite a hassle. The best option is to rely on exclusion. You must replace damaged screens, clean debris from your door’s entrance, and use caulk to seal any visible openings.
