If you don't have anyone allergic to it, I've found that Raid flying insect spray applied to windows will kill the little (expletive deleted) bugs. Since they seem to eat everything . . . okay, taste everything . . . it will act as a residual poison for 3 or 4 days. One of our south windows was so covered you couldn't see out of it. I sprayed some Raid and in half an hour vacuumed up 3-4 thousand beetles. The best part was they kept dying.
