Stink Bugs: A Seasonal Pest Problem 

Stink bugs are rapidly becoming an alarming problem for home and business owners across the state of Maryland. The Brown marmorated stink bug was first identified in Pennsylvania in 1996. Today this non-native pest has spread to more than 20 neighboring states. What began as an isolated pest sighting has developed into a seasonal phenomenon.

Why Are Stink Bugs Infesting Homes?

Stink bugs seek to enter homes at the first sign of cooler weather. They do so because they are unable to survive the elements without overwintering. Once inside, stink bugs may wander from room to room in search of food and water. Though they are harmless to humans occasionally stink bugs will cause damage to household plants. Stink bugs are well known (and appropriately named and well) for the offensive odor that they secrete. They do so when they feel threatened.
