What Do Stink Bugs Look Like?
Stink bugs are commonly referred to as “shield bugs” due to their body shape resembling a shield. Typically around 5/8 of an inch long, this pest contains two long antennae with a pale tan/brown top and a white belly. They get their name from having the ability to emit a foul stench from their scent glands when they are disturbed or crushed.
What Dangers Do Stink Bugs Pose?
For homeowners who reside in suitable living environments for stink bugs, they can become quite a nuisance. Stink bugs feed on fruit, vegetables, and other plants, which can lead to infestations in gardens and landscaping. Come Fall when the temperature begins to drop, these pests will do what they can to make their way inside the home. Their attraction to light and warmth will lead you to find them near windows, light fixtures, and TV sets. Stink bugs that enter the home in August may begin to mate and start an infestation, which is why we urge you to call a pest professional as soon as they're sited.
Stink Bug Treatment Best Practices
#1 - Treatment should be done as early as possible for maximum effectiveness. When done earlier in the season where cooler temperatures start becoming more prevalent, stink bug activity can be reduced between 90-100%. If treatment is done later in the season, it may be less effective.
#2 - To prevent infestation, it is best to seal up any small openings where stink bugs or any other small pest can enter the home. Use caulk to seal gaps around windows, doors, vents, and eves, especially near the attic.
