Occasional Invader Classifications And Other Information
What Insects Are Classified As Occasional Invaders?
The occasional invader is a pest that diligently invades the living and working spaces of humans and animals. These insects spend a big portion of their time trying to invade inhabited living spaces, such as houses, apartments, flats, condos, and multi-story housing complexes. What you may not know about these insects is some of them will also invade commercial settings, such as hotels, motels, country inns, cabins, and lodges. Occasional invaders are not known to spread diseases or parasites to humans or animals.

There is no evidence to support the theory that occasional invaders pose health risks to humans, animals, or the environment. However, they do pose a threat to plants, building structures, and other organic materials. The only pro of having an occasional invader infestation is they do not reproduce after the invasion, which is unlike the bed bug, ants, roaches, and other common household pests.
