I think there are more bugs getting into my house this year than any other. I'm wondering, which would have less bugs in your house, a completely empty front/back yard with nothing but grass as far as the eye can see? Or very big shade trees and shrubs everywhere? I don't like to use pesticides or poisons, but I can't tell where or how these bugs are getting in and most of them I find dead on the floor like ants or flying around like gnats. Please help with suggestions, sick of this bug invasion.

Go to the House forum.
There is a sticky about Do It Yourself pest control.
You might find some ideas there.

Horrible this year here. Horrible. Long duration snowpack preserved the bugs and they never froze even though we had a historic winter. We need a severe cold but dry winter to kill them off. Or at least a thin snowpack.

You don't have location in your header so no idea where you are to say that too.
