Stink Bugs Preventive Treatment & Control

Adult stink bugs are commonly seen on sidewalks, plants, and building structures in warmer temperatures. But as fall arrives, these pests begin to look for warmer areas like your home and work their way in through tiny crevices and cracks in your walls, windows, and doors. Their eggs are known to be elliptical in shape and they can be anywhere from light yellow to yellow-red in color.

Potential Damage and Health Complications to Consider

Even though stink bugs don’t really bite, pose any harm to humans and pets, or spread any diseases, some people can be allergic to the compounds they release. Some symptoms of this allergy that you should watch out for include:

  • Runny nose
  • Dermatitis (if you come in contact with crushed stink bugs)

Moreover, these bugs can contaminate crops as well as fruits and suck out all their moisture. Here’s a list of crops and fruits they tend to damage:

  • Soy
  • Corn
  • Peaches
  • Figs
  • Apples
  • Blackberries
  • Persimmons

Signs of a Stink Bug Infestation

It’s not hard to tell if your home or garden has become infested with stink bugs because they’re quite easy to spot and they don’t really make an effort to hide from you. Here are some signs of a stink bug infestation:

  • Foul-smelling odors (a defense mechanism that protects them from predators)
  • Seeing large numbers of live or dead/crushed stink bugs
  • Damaged fruits and vegetables (tiny scars in the form of discolored and sunken areas)
  • Dirty yellow or brown stains left by their secretions
