So far I have only seen a few in the house this year.  Nothing like the hundreds last Fall.  I am in zone 5 near Lansing, MI(south central lower Michigan).

We haven't had any come in the house yet this year (in
northern Pennsylvania).  

We have not (yet) had hordes of them, but have had maybe a
couple of hundred each autumn.  So far this year:  none.  

Fingers crossed. :)  Maybe some natural enemy or disease is
getting hold of them, or maybe our wet, cool summer wasn't
to their liking.
