Bob those damn things usually appear at start of June, but late this year. We have to wipe conservatory window sills outside at least 3 times a day with a very wet sponge, or they leak red all over. Inside it's wet kitchen roll to dab them with, if I catch the odd one heading for my white blinds (gross to say ) it's a wet finger on them and then a hand wash.
Luckily they seem to only be here about a month. Neighbours don't have a problem and we wondered if they arrived in the sand that was part of mix for conservatory brick work. They don't seem to crawl up the wall just appear under the sills and then on PVC, and inside through any means available.
Busy L, I don't know.
I clean glass houses and canes with it, and sometimes drains, but will say it stinks, and I hate the smell.
