They get in through the smallist cracks. My sister has a brand new house and she still gets them inside. Makes you wonder what else is getting in your house:confused:
The ones that bite are related to Japenese bettles. They are a pain. If you have any holes in siding, windows, pipes through the walls of the house, etc., they will get in. I use to deal with them in construction. They get between the siding and work through the walls. They probably won't hurt anything in the tank though. Might be a good source of food.
