Unwelcome, Undesirable Insects or Spiders

Challenge #194 in the Life in the Natural World series. Hosted by RuthC.
Challenge has finished
Here's your opportunity to show the world the problems insects or spiders can cause in our domestic lives. I'm thinking termites, wasps, stinging ants, bee swarms in unwanted places, bed bugs, midges which drive animals and Scottish Highlanders insane with their bites, leeches, (yes, I know they aren't insects or spiders), and any other nasties you can suggest. Entries of insects or spiders which I consider 'friendly' may be disqualified. Your entry should show an element of of the problems the insects or spiders have caused, or give us an explanation about these unwelcome guests. Macro and close-ups welcome. Size of entry: 1,600 pixels on the longer side.
