Are there insects on the space station? (Not counting any being used in experiments)

I'm curious as to whether the inhabitants of the ISS have to squash spiders like the rest of us. Obviously it would be something NASA would try to avoid happening to begin with, but it seems to me that it'd be hard to keep *every* insect out of the space shuttle and other related space-items prior to launch.
So is this the case? And if so, does it have any consequences or is it just something that doesn't really matter?
