Stink Bugs

Why Should I Be Concerned About Stink Bugs?

Stink Bugs survive the winter as an adult by entering houses and structures when autumn evenings become colder. They will enter under siding, into soffits, around window and door frames, chimneys, or any space which has openings big enough to fit through. Once inside the house, they will go into a state of hibernation. They wait for winter to pass, but often the warmth inside the house causes them to become active, and they may fly clumsily around light fixtures.

Stink bugs emit a noxious odor through their abdomen when disturbed or crushed. This makes them an irritating pest to deal with as they will release their smell in almost all cases. Worst of all, you have to remove them quickly, because they can transmit plant diseases as they feed on fruits and vegetables.
