With autumn weather comes cooler temperatures, which stimulates insects with the “overwintering” instinct—including stink bugs! Looking for sites to spend the winter, stink bugs detect warm exhaust air from a home and begin to cluster around these areas. Then, if access is possible, stink bugs will press in and look for hibernation locations. This could include eaves, louvers, chimneys, exhausting fans, ridge vents, and vent pipes.
Once inside these locations, the stinkers follow the heat path back to its source—which usually ends up somewhere in the living areas, presenting some very uncomfortable situations including “dive bombing” residents, flying into lights, and of course squirting their infamous stink spray, smelling up the place and leaving reddish-brown stains on walls, drapes, and floors.
Dominion has become the area’s answer for homes and businesses, being called by WGAL ‘Stink Bug Experts’ (WGAL, Feb 2011). Owner Greg Pettis describes, “We were the only company willing to go after the stinkers back then.” Since, Dominion has been featured in Lancaster Newspapers, Fox 43, CBS 21, and York Daily Record displaying how we get rid of them. For valuable information on stink bugs and how we control them, watch our Stink Bug FAQ video (above). To have your home or business treated, call us today: 717-393-7879.

Most of our Outdoor programs offer Green Control, reducing risks to your family and pets.
Dominion’s Award Winning Team now offers ‘Green’ Pest Control, featuring Nature-Cide® all natural, non-toxic insecticide/pesticide.
Dominion’s owner, Greg Pettis, decided to offer the Green Pest Control Program after encountering the new all natural line of pesticides from Nature-Cide®. “We had tried ‘Green’ products in the past, only to be disappointed,” Pettis admits. “It took a lot to change my mind, and Nature-Cide® did it.” Pettis says the company is using the all natural line of products on pests such as spiders, centipedes, fleas, ticks, mosquitoes, ants and more. “Products we are using on the perimeter from Nature-Cide® even repel mice, rats and snakes. Nothing we have ever used before could do that.”
Dominion says some of the benefits include reduced application restrictions and runoff concerns. Another obvious application benefit is the great smell the new products offer, such as cedar, cinnamon and clove oil. “Everyone loves the smell, and I think our technicians are really enjoying not coming home smelling like chemicals at the end of the day.” Dominion also is offering the Nature-Cide® line of products in premixed spray bottles for fleas and ticks that can be used on animals, furniture, or flooring and an insect repellent spray great for ticks and mosquitoes.

Teresa McMinn, writer for York Daily Record, included Dominion in her story, Stink bugs difficult to deal with in York County. She elaborates on Dominion’s owner typical workday: “Gregory Pettis’ description of his workday sounds more like a combat scene in an action movie. ‘We’re really rocking and rolling,’ he said and talked of a ‘seek-and-destroy mission’ to kill stink bugs. ‘You really have to study the habits and know your enemy.'” She also made reference to Greg’s comment about Dominion’s success with stink bugs: “In 2006 … it was just me,” he said. “Now, we’re up to eight”.
