Brown marmorated stink bugs aren’t native to the United States, but they can be found in most American states. The invasive pest is from Asia and arrived in the United States in 1996. As you’ll soon learn, these bugs can release a terrible odor and turn your home into a stinky mess. To prevent this from happening, don’t scare or crush them. The bug releases a bad odor from the glands on its thorax. Stink bugs range in size from half an inch to three-quarters of an inch. In terms of color, they can be gray or brown.
They have white stripes on their antennas.
Why Stink Bugs Want Inside
Stink bugs want to enter your home. They do so because they’re overwintering pests. These pests cannot tolerate cold weather. If they get stuck outside during the winter, they may not survive. Instead, they’ll search for a way to invade your home. If they can get inside, they’ll stay there until the cold weather is over. When it gets hot outside, the pests will stay outside and consume fruits and vegetable crops.
When pests invade your home, you have to worry about your health. Unfortunately, some pests are incredibly dangerous. The good news is that stink bugs are not. They’re annoying and they’ll turn your home into a smelly mess. Nevertheless, you don’t need to worry about them making you sick. They cannot transmit serious illnesses to people or pets. Although you’ll want to eliminate them, don’t squash them. Doing that will only make your home stink.
Riding Your Home Of Stink Bugs
Finding a way to get rid of stink bugs quickly is highly recommended. Otherwise, the risks are going to climb. Although stink bugs aren’t dangerous, it is a good idea to remove them immediately. Unfortunately, lots of stink bugs will try to enter your home in late fall. They’re overwintering pests so they do not want to stay outside. You may be able to remove some stink bugs from your home by sucking them up with a vacuum cleaner. Although this is a good technique for small infestations, we think it is best to work with a professional.
