Swarms of boxelder bugs covers homes in North York and Etobicoke

Nelia Teves can't walk into her North York house without a handful of black and red cockroach-esque critters flying in behind her.

"Our entire neighbourhood is covered in them," Teves said.

She reached out to CBC News to find out what they are and whether she should be worried.

It turns out, they're more of an annoyance than a threat.They'recalled boxelder bugs and they'reknown as "nuisance pests."

Theydon't bite, transmit disease or damage homes or plants.They're native to Southwestern Ontario and come out every year, but this year there was a baby boom.

Guelph University entomologist Morgan Jackson explained they lay their eggs and feed on Manitoba maple trees (or boxelder trees), which are plentiful in North York and Etobicoke.

The particularly dry summer made for prime breeding conditions. They love basking in the sunand congregate on south facing walls.

"They're basically like tiny little cats in search of sunlight to lounge and nap in," Jackson said.

Inthe late summer and fall they start moving away from the plants they feed on towards places where they can spend the winter safely.

"Nowadays, that usually means our homes," Jackson said. "They spend the winter as adults hiding in cracks and crevices. When the weather gets colder they'll go into hibernation."

Ahmad uses a chemical spray that kills the bugs within about half an hour and leaves a residue that lynches anythat come along after.

Keeping bugs at bay without spray?

Toronto-based arborist and forester StephenSmith said spraying the exterior of homeswith water will drive them away for a while since they don't like cool temperatures.

He also recommends sealing windows and doors to prevent them from getting inside. If they do, he said there's not much to worry about.

"They'll leave a stain if you squish them, but that's about it."

He said people won`t be seeing much of the boxelder bug once first frost comes around.

Bed bugs reported at Baytown movie theater

HOUSTON - Health officials in the city of Baytown are checking into a report of a movie-goer being bitten by a bed bug during a Saturday afternoon movie.

Health Department officials said the report came from a patron of the Baytown Premier Cinema 11 at San Jacinto Mall.

"Little weird to know now," said McKinley Gray, who frequents the theater. "I don't think anyone would have to worry about that at a movie theater."

Baytown officials said they are still investigating the matter. Theater director Michael McIntyre sent KPRC a written statement in response to questions about the incident.

"On Saturday afternoon, 9/10/16, we were made aware of a possible problem in one of our auditoriums involving an insect bite. As soon as we could safely do so without causing alarm, we shut down the auditorium when that movie had ended so we could investigate the issue and it remained closed until Thursday, 9/15/16.

"Our local pest control company inspected the theater on Monday and did find a problem with one of the seats in that auditorium. Even though the problem was isolated to the one seat in the back row of the auditorium, we had the back two rows treated just to make sure that the issue was remedied. We then had all of the seats in the auditorium professionally cleaned on Wednesday before reopening the auditorium to the public on Thursday. Our pest control company will be reinspecting the theater periodically to ensure that the issue does not occur again. It is a very small issue compared to the mosquito problems, etc. that one can find in Houston, and not exactly newsworthy. We treated the problem professionally like we would do with anything else. As of now, the building has been inspected, any issues have been resolved, and the theater is free from any pests."
