Asian Beetle Prevention?

My screened in porch is brand new (2014) and fully screened when the house was built so there shouldn't be any openings. I have a terrible problem with them entering, but I cannot figure out where. If I use a basic caulk to seal up the posts would that help keep them out?

They can be extremely pesky and fly in swarms. Buy a good insect killer at the hardware store and go all around the foundation and the area where you see them with the insecticide. OR - go to a garden shop or a local garden club for advice. I had them when I bought my house the former owner ripped out all the annuals to get rid of them.

I am not familiar with this type of beetle, but I do know that insects can get in any house at all. How? Who knows? Where I live, we have still snow on the ground on the north side of garages and thick bluffs of trees. We've had some nice days of 50 to 60 F, but today is 35 F.

Dandelions are not in bloom and the grass has not started to green up in the lawn. But, last Tuesday there was a ladybird beetle in my bathroom. How it got there, I haven't a clue. I released it to the wild.
