Spring is Stink Bug Season

Stink Bug on a leafSpring has sprung –– and so have the stink bugs. There’s nothing worse than sitting down to dinner with
your family, or taking a seat outside on your patio, and seeing several stink bugs scuttling around your home.

While the invasive insects won’t hurt you, they’re considered to be a nuisance because of their defense mechanism: an unpleasant odor they emit when they are alarmed, disturbed or squashed. This is the time of year that stink bugs, also known as brown marmorated stink bugs, emerge, having spent all winter hiding in your attic or other isolated, dark parts of your property.

J.P. McHale Pest Management, Inc.’s Director of Operations, Joe Fryer, recently appeared on News 12 Westchester to tell viewers what they can do to rid their homes of pesky stink bugs. Click here to watch what he had to say about the matter.

If those brown, smelly bugs are taking over your New York, New Jersey or Connecticut home, Joe recommends the following tactics:

  • Seal attic vents to prevent stink bugs from entering your home.
  • Fix broken screens to prevent stink bugs from entering your home.
  • Do not crush any intruding stink bugs; vacuum them up to avoid their unpleasant smell.
