How to Get Rid of Those Annoying Stink Bugs

Since the mid-1990s, stink bugs have been a huge problem in the eastern United States. These annoying pests are originally from East Asian countries like Korea, China, and Japan. Once they got to the United States, they took over quickly because they lack the natural predators from their native lands. 

Waldorf, MD, and the areas are a hotspot for stink bug activity. You have likely seen these small, shield-shaped, brown bugs around. They are not harmful to humans. That’s the good news. The bad news is that they can infest your home quickly with large numbers. It is important to know how to get rid of annoying stink bugs. That is exactly the information you will receive in the rest of this article. 

 

The Signs of a Stink Bug Problem 

Spotting a stink bug infestation is not that hard. In fact, it is quite easy. Seeing a stink bug in your Waldorf home means you have a stink bug problem. Stink bugs are not shy. They enter our homes in large numbers in the late summer and early fall. As the weather gets colder, they seek out our homes for their warmth. You will find stink bugs in sunny windows or other warm locations. 

Stink bugs get their name because of the bad smell they release when crushed. They “stink” in every sense of the word. Most people compare the stink bug’s smell to cilantro or coriander. The smell is designed to ward off predators and includes humans. 

A final way that you can spot a stink bug infestation is by checking your house plants. One of the biggest ways that stink bugs annoys homeowners is by eating their plants. If you notice your plants being eaten, look for stink bugs. They are likely the culprits. 

 

How to Get Rid of Stink Bugs 

Getting rid of stink bugs is not as easy as spotting them. They reproduce quickly and can be hard to eradicate from our homes completely. That doesn’t mean there is nothing you can do. Take the following steps to get rid of those annoying stink bugs. 

  1. The best way to stop a stink bug infestation is to prevent it. Sealing all entry points to your home is a good way to keep pests like stink bugs from getting inside. You may also try crushing some stink bugs outside your home. This supposedly warns other stink bugs to stay away. Over-the-counter perimeter sprays may also be a good preventative measure. 
  2. If you find stink bugs in your home, don’t crush them. Crush too many and your house will start to smell like stink bugs. Instead of crushing them, capture the stink bugs. Then take them outside. 
  3. Contact Barefoot Pest Control. We are your Waldorf, MD, source for the best stink bug removal. Our experts will remove all traces of your stink bug problem and ensure no new bugs get in. If you don’t want to worry about solving your stink bug infestation yourself, contact Barefoot Pest Control. We even provide same-day service and night and weekend appointments at no extra cost.
