Raid fumigator (which is a smoke rather than a spray) worked extremely well in our rig.

These are Asian beetles, a nasty cousin to ladybugs. They bite, they stink, and they leave a yellowish residue on walls, shower stalls, etc. I have a little hand-vac and just suck the little devils up and take them outside to the trash can. Usually, after a big flood of them in the fall, they pretty much go away. Weve still got some popping up and its early February.

I used my vacuum each day for 4 or 5 days. I vacuumed everyone I saw and after a couple days they became fewer and fewer. After about 5 days they were history. Never had them again since but if I get another infestation, Ill do the same thing.

Dont forget to extend the awning where you will likely find a few thousand more. 😳 Good Luck!

We’ve had them in our house also, but all gone now, for this season!

We used the vacuum method here the past two autumns with a Rainbow vac. Takes some time but got rid of most of them over a one week period. Also, sucked them on the outside as high as we could reach. Tip: Don't leave them in the vacuum canister overnight! Ask me how I know
