Perhaps those 30 year old windows do not close as well as they used to. The Front door threshold  no longer stops the leaves or the Roaches, the Grout around  the Tub is Worn away and the Ants  are crawling in. Birds and Rodents are entering through the attic screen and the Soffit Vent.

Ever notice wasps and other flying bugs inspecting your house? They are looking
for warm accommodations for the upcoming winter season.
