Contacting a pest control services company such as ours can be a very convenient way to deal with these pesky bugs.
Stink Bug Infestations
Stink bugs can get inside a home or office easily through poorly sealed windows or doors, skylights, and
any other openings in the exterior of the building. They go looking for warm places to overwinter and
can find their way indoors easily if there are any entry points. Once inside they go into a dormant state
until the weather improves. The main issue with these bugs is the smell and the fact that they can enter
your home in large numbers when the weather gets nasty.
If you don’t see these bugs crawling around in the colder weather looking for a place to hide out, you
may see them in the spring when they come out of the dormant state. Or, if the weather is particularly
nice, they may be tricked into thinking it’s time to wake up. Since these bugs aren’t terribly small, they
are easy to spot when they are out and about.
How to Spot a Stink Bug in Your Home or Office
The brown marmorated stink bug comes in a variety of different sizes. This particular pest feeds on crops. Meaning, if you have a farm, garden, or certain types of plants growing in your yard, they will likely feed on them. A large stink bug population can cause serious damage to your nourishments. The best way to combat these pests is to take care of them as quickly as possible. Contact us if you see any in your home, and we’ll craft a plan to eliminate them before they get a foothold.
