More About Stink Bugs
Brown Marmorated Stink Bugs are invasive pests that are native to Asia. Over the years, these pests have created problems for people across the United States. They arrived in the United States sometime in the middle of the 1990s. Since then, they’ve spread across the country. The first identification took place in Allentown, Pennsylvania. As the name implies, stink bugs can release a foul odor. If you spook or crush them, they’re going to release a foul odor. Stink bugs can be found across several states including Indiana, Michigan, and Ohio. They range in size from half an inch to three-quarters of an inch.
Reasons For Stink Bugs
Stink bugs enter homes for one reason. They’re overwintering pests and do not want to be stuck outside during the cold weather. When the temperatures begin getting colder, stink bugs are going to find a way to enter your home, they’ll crawl through the smallest cracks. When the temperatures rise, they’ll try to go outside. However, they may get stuck in your home. Just remember that they’re trying to go outside. During the warm months, stink bugs are structural pests that damage vegetable and fruit plants.
