All About Stink Bugs

Stink Bugs have arrived! Within the last decade they have been imported to Allentown, and now they are in Lancaster and York, PA! Named for the terrible odor they give when crushed, stink bugs are here to stay. They seem to find their way into homes with little effort, and have now become a pest we need to control.

The easiest way for us to control stink bugs is to powerspray the perimeter of a home or structure, and focus on areas where they can penetrate into the interior walls. It is not uncommon for a stink bug to hitch-hike on a body into the house, but if you are seeing them in the winter that is not when they got in. Sadly, they are already in your walls, you just don’t know it. Stink bugs will sun-bathe on the south side of your home if you live in Lancaster or York, PA, and then press in around areas such as windows, doors, utility service lines, dryer vents, outside faucets, etc. Confused by the extreme difference in temperature between the inside and outside of your wall, stink bugs will press in to where they think summer is—the inside of your home!
