Insects are a nuisance anytime they invade a home or automobile, and they can be problematic to deal with due to their small size. Some bugs are the size of a pinhead, so they can easily slip into the house through cracks in window frames and other small openings. If you notice pinhead-sized insects starting to accumulate on or around your windows, getting rid of them should be a priority before they can propagate and increase their numbers.


Step 1

Swat the window with a flyswatter to kill some of the insects. Bugs as small as a pinhead can be difficult to crush but you can eliminate some of them through traditional crushing methods.

Step 2

Spray the window with an insecticide to kill off the remaining insects if you are still having problems with them.


Step 3

Clean the glass by spraying it with white vinegar and water in a half-and-half solution. This will remove the insect remains from the glass and will clean the insecticide off the window. Wipe away the vinegar solution with a microfiber cloth to remove the debris and get the glass clean again.


Add a drop of dish soap into the solution of vinegar and water if your windows are streaked after just using the vinegar.
