What Are Brown Marmorated Stink Bugs?
In the United States and elsewhere, the Brown Marmorated Stink Bug is one of the worst invasive pest insects. It recently came from Asia to the United States, and it is named for the odor it releases when scared. It will also release a foul odor when it is crushed, so it is best to remove them using other methods. The first stink bugs in the United States were found in Allentown, Pennsylvania in the mid-90s. Since then, stink bugs have been identified in Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, West Virginia, Tennessee, and New York. They range in size from half an inch to three-quarters of an inch, with most being brown or gray.
Why Are Stink Bugs In My Home?
One thing to know about stink bugs is that they’re overwintering pests. This tells you a lot about the bug’s behavior. When it begins cooling outside, the stink bugs are going to look for a way to stay warm. To do that, they may decide to sneak into your home. Stink bugs will find a way into your home using holes, gaps, cracks, and crevices. Once inside, they’ll stay there until they’re ready to leave, and they won’t leave until the temperatures rise.
Are Stink Bugs Dangerous?
Although concerning, you can rest assured knowing that stink bugs are not going to pose a danger to humans or pets. They won’t bite or reproduce inside of your home. Still, you have to work quickly to get rid of them because their pests can be unsettling.
Getting Rid Of Stink Bugs
When dealing with stink bugs, you need to use techniques that are not going to cause additional problems. You need to make sure that you’re not going to scare or crush the bugs since they can make your home smelly. To negate the risk, you should get rid of stink bugs using a vacuum cleaner.
