The name stink bug fits these Maryland pests appropriately. These insects emit a very unpleasant smell when they are threatened or are squished, often making people wary of trying to deal with them. These smelly pests are easily recognized because of a triangular shaped plate that is found on their back. Stink bugs are agricultural pests that feed on a variety of plants and fruits. However, these typically outside pests do find their way inside of homes and other buildings during the fall, looking for a warm safe place to spend the winter in. To help stop stink bugs from overwintering inside of your home we offer the following prevention tips.
Seal all cracks and crevices that are found in your home’s foundation or exterior walls.
Caulk gaps found around windows and doors.
Replace any door or window screens that have holes or rips in them.
Make sure that all chimneys have tight-fitting caps on them.
Place covers over all vents.
Trim back overgrown trees and vegetation from the outside of your home.
If stink bugs ever make an appearance in your Bel Air home, contact American Pest to put into place the services needed to eliminate these smelly pests and to keep them from returning.
