When the cooler weather of September and October draws near, there are some pests which become especially persistent. Stink bugs and boxelder bugs are a common, widespread insect and they seek shelter within homes and buildings when the season changes from summer to fall. While they’re not poisonous or dangerous, they can be a very annoying pest to deal with. Their invasion can be a nuisance for homeowners because of the abundant quantities in which they arrive. In some instances, they can cover the entire outside wall of a home as they are looking for a way inside! As the name implies, their defense mechanism against predators is to release a pungent smell through glands located on the sides and undersides of their bodies when they are disturbed, but the strongest odor is transmitted when they are crushed.

To help prevent stink bugs from entering your dwelling, seal potential entry points, like cracks and crevices in doors, windows and siding. If you do find them indoors, vacuum them up and discard the bag immediately. Avoid crushing them!
