Are Stink Bugs Driving You Crazy? Pest Experts Reveal How To Get Rid Of Stink Bugs
You’re now finding them in your bed, your hair, your clothes – Stink bugs are popping up everywhere!
Stink Bugs are out earlier this year because of the rainy summer we had and now, our cooler weather is forcing stink bugs to make their way inside to find warmth. In addition, stink bugs secrete pheromones to alert other stink bugs to where they are, which is why they can frequently be found congregating.
So, if you feel like your home is being overtaken by stink bugs, you’re probably right!
JP McHale pest experts reveal that the best way to get rid of stink bugs is to keep them from getting inside in the first place!
Here are JP McHale’s Pest Expert Tips for Keeping these Overwintering Invaders Out:
It’s all about exclusion!
Seal around chimneys.
Repair or replace damaged screens.
Seal around doors and windows.
Replace worn weatherstripping on garage doors.
Seal around eaves.
Repair any openings on the foundation due to wear and tear.
Place screens on attic vents.
Make sure to schedule Overwintering Treatments before the first frost in order to interrupt the breeding cycle and reduce the level of activity throughout the season. The most significant time of vulnerability for overwintering invaders to enter your home is early fall into November, which is why overwintering treatments MUST be done in the fall to be effective in preventing these pests from entering your home.
And, if they’re already inside your home…
Bring in the professionals! JP McHale’s Overwintering Treatments are made to the harboring shrubs and plants, windowsills, undersiding, eaves, and chimneys using environmentally sound products to discourage stink bugs and other invaders from coming inside as the weather gets colder.
