Stink Bug Control in New Jersey
Generally found in the garden, stink bugs will find their way into homes and structures when fall evenings start to turn cold or during the long summer nights when porch and deck lights are on and doors are being opened and closed. These bugs won’t harm you or your belongings, but they can be smelly if crushed or collected in a sweeper. They won’t bite, because they don’t have jaws, but a stink bug will pierce you with the beak it uses to suck the juices out of pine seeds. It feels like a pin prick.
Be wary if these flying insects are feeding on your garden as they can devour whole gardens in short time. Stink bugs are generally difficult to control without the use of a professional exterminator service and treatment. New Jersey residents who deal with this problem year after year should contact Precise Pest Control in the spring or fall to schedule a treatment for these stinky bugs.

Stink Bug adults emerge from overwintering between May and the beginning of June. They mate and lay eggs from June through September. The eggs hatch into small nymphs that go through five molts between July and September. Adults begin to appear in mid-August to early September. Studies have shown that their flights in search of overwintering sites start in mid-September and peak during the first half of October. NJ homeowners can identify stink bugs by their shield shaped shell and wings. You may even be able to identify a stink bug by its odor, especially if they are congregating in large numbers in your home.
They acquired their name from a natural defense they have which is to release a smell that “stinks”. The stinkbug’s ability to emit a vile odor through holes in its abdomen is a defense mechanism meant to prevent it from being eaten by birds and lizards. However, simply jostling the bug, cornering it, scaring or injuring it, or attempting to remove it from one’s house can “set it off”. Squashing it is a surefire way of expelling its noxious odor. If you have ever handled a stink bug you probably know the smell! They will release it onto most any surface they land and it will last for 6 months or more.
These odors will serve as attractants to other stink bugs which hibernated in the building in the past as well as new stink bugs looking for a good place to reside for the upcoming winter. These odors are the main reason stink bugs return to homes which have a history of infestation so even though they are gone during the summer don’t be surprised when they return next fall.
