Unknown Flying Pest in Home


House in upstate NY has been empty for 1 month. No known problems before leaving for summer home. Something setting off motion detection cam is creeping us out. Hope someone has an idea of what could be flying around and what to have done about it

Some type of flying insect. Can't tell much from those videos.
Any firewood in the house? Could be coming out of the wood.

A dip net about 18" diameter usually slows the fast flyers to less than a crawl so a still pic can be taken.

First thing to my mind would be bats. They can enter through a very tiny hole and love empty homes. Search the attic and look for droppings, lots of pictures on the internet.

Looks too small to be bats.

How about cockroaches? Some varieties fly.

If noisy flight maybe it's a Blow Fly wanting leftovers from thanksgiving dinner but they usually look for rotting flesh/meat to lay eggs in and hatch maggots.

Re: Unknown Flying Pest in Home


My guess would be "Stink" bugs or "Asian Lady" bugs. They both have been getting worse the last few years & they both come indoors this time of year. My Wyze cam in the basement captures the same thing at times.

Put some sticky pest strips. Maybe it will catch a few.
