Most stink bugs feed on plants and all are harmless to humans. They get their name, in part, from the odor they release when squished and they leave a greasy stain. There are several different types of stink bugs living in Kentucky, any and all of which would love to make your nice warm house their home this winter. Once one stink bug finds its way in it emits a pheromone that lets all his pals know that he found a great place to spend the winter. Soon, you have hundreds of unwanted “guests” in your home.
Stink bugs first made their appearance in Kentucky about 6 years ago and are quickly making themselves at home. IPM Pest and Termite has 20 years of experience dealing with the unwanted “guests” in your home or office, including the newest ones, stink bugs. But, treating for these pests is just the start. We will also help you figure out where and how they are entering your home or office, seal their entryway and then devise a custom maintenance program just for you to keep them from coming back.
Stink bugs have a life span of about 50 to 70 days, depending on the species. A female will lay up to 400 eggs in her short life. That means that for every six stink bugs roughly 2,000 more will survive to maturity and begin the whole cycle all over again. Stink bugs are difficult to kill with over-the-counter products because they typically just aren’t strong enough to penetrate the hard outer shell of the bug. Bug bombs are equally inefficient since they don’t reach the cracks and crevices where stink bugs like to hide. And we already know what happens if you try just stepping on them! IPM Pest and Termite has the right tools for the job and we know where they’re hiding.
