stink bug on treeStink bugs, which can be green, brown or gray, are common insect pests that give off unpleasant odors when disturbed. These critters can enter homes and residences through weaknesses in the foundation. If allowed to proliferate inside the building, the bugs can infest most rooms of the house. While a few stray bugs can generally be vacuumed up, larger populations will nearly always require professional assistance. At Masters Termite and Pest Control, we can assess the situation and develop a tailored plan of action. The insects can thus be eradicated before the infestation becomes severe.

Identifying Stink Bugs

Stink bugs have triangular bodies and are usually under an inch long. The bugs are common crop pests and can become especially bothersome in agricultural areas. The females of the species lay masses of eggs on the undersides of leaves and plant stalks. The nymphs that emerge from the eggs mature into winged adults later in the year. The insects are found all over the eastern United States.

Associated Problems

While most species of stink bugs are innocuous, the insects can give off loathsome odors that can be quite problematic. The bugs are most evident during the fall and spring but are active during all seasons of the year. Because squashing the bugs can lead to aromas that will be difficult to eradicate, trusted exterminators should always handle the job.

Abby arrived on time and was accompanied by her father, the owner of the business. Both of them were very professional. Abby entered the crawl space and in addition to inspection and reporting, she drilled and sprayed each pier. She also drilled holes about a foot apart in all concrete around the perimeter while her father dug a little trench around the entire house, about two inches deep and three inches wide a couple inches from the edge. All of these locations also received the Termidor spray. The product is good for five years and we also signed up for their annual inspection program. For $90, they'll inspect the crawl space and ensure no new activity is occurring. Their work this day took a few hours and was very well done. She provided me a detailed report, pictures, and the state required paperwork for insecticide use. I'm very happy with Masters Pest Control.
