Brown marmorated stink bugs are not native to the Delaware valley region and were likely introduced to the area in the mid 1980s. Stink bugs get their name from the scent glands on the underside of their body. Like cockroaches, the odor stink bugs emit is an airborne allergen, and has a similar effect on the lungs. These brown, shield shaped bugs are almost as wide as they are long. In spring and throughout summer, stink bugs emerge looking for farm crops, fruit trees and vegetables to feed on and destroy. These pests come indoors during the fall months looking for warm places to spend the winter. Patriot Pest Solutions offer a reactive and preventative approach to dealing with stink bugs.
Early Treatment = Total Control
When it comes to stink bug control, treatment in early fall is the key to maximum effectiveness. Temperatures dropping outdoors signal brown marmorated stink bugs to seek sources of shelter for the coming winter months. Homes and businesses treated in early fall can expect a stink bug activity reduction of 90-100%. Treatments performed later in the season may be less effective.
