Getting Rid of Stink Bugs

If you need help with stink bug control in McHenry, IL or any city within Northern Illinois or Southeastern Wisconsin, contact Schopen Pest Solutions for help. Stink bugs got their name for a reason; when upset or crushed, they can release offensive odor. This can make these bugs a little harder to eliminate once they have entered a building. Simply stepping on them or swatting them is going to cause the bug to emit an unpleasant odor that makes the atmosphere unpleasant. Although stink bugs are not dangerous, they can be very annoying and persistent when they find a nice, warm place to hide out. Even the carcass can release an odor if not handled carefully. Contacting a pest control services company such as ours is the best way to deal with these pesky bugs.

The brown marmorated stink bug comes in a variety of different sizes. This particular pest feeds on crops. That means if you have a farm, garden, or certain types of plants, they will likely feed on them. A large stink bug population can cause serious damage to your edibles. 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.

Stink bug infestations

Stink bugs can get inside a home or office easily through poorly sealed windows or doors, skylights, chimneys, attics 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 entry points. Once inside, they go into a dormant state called diapause 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 pests 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.
