Temperatures finally warm up in the springtime, but we're not the only creatures emerging from a long and dormant winter. Pests -- ants, flies, Asian lady beetles -- all threaten to infest your home this time of year. There are also the year-round favorites, including bed bugs, stink bugs, and mice. Urban wildlife like squirrels, bats, and raccoons can also invade a home. We'll talk about all the pests that rule Northeast Ohio, and how to get rid of them. Some say we should learn to co-exist, but others put their foot down -- literally.
