Stinkbug Season Is Upon Us

Stink bugs can be major household pests, stealthily getting into your home through doors, seal cracks, utility pipes and other types of openings. Not only do these creepy crawlies often make homes smell unpleasant, but they also tend to gather in large groups — not exactly fun to see in your living room. Mature stinkbugs also like to consume fruit.

It’s a real stinker of a problem

Stinkbugs, true to their name, often stink. It’s no joke. Their strong odors are a means of defense. They release these smells via openings in their abdomens. When they do so, it generally means that they’re trying to protect themselves from potential predator attack — think reptiles and birds. If you try to catch a stinkbug to remove it from your residence, however, you might notice the pest giving off the odor, too. Not only are stinkbug odors yucky, but also they’re also extremely strong and persistent. They sometimes linger for a minimum of six months, which is the last thing you want in your home.

They’re particularly common in the spring and summer months, notably in gardens. Stinkbugs tend to spend the winter in hiding, whether under boards, under rocks or amid weeds. When May rolls around each year, you might notice these pests out and about much more. Stink bug infestations can quickly get out of hand and intensify. It is important to take action the minute you suspect your house may have stinkbugs and get a home inspection from a qualified pest control expert
