As summer fades into fall, stink bugs begin their annual journey back to their favorite winter hibernation spot, your home. They make their way in through small openings, gaps, or cracks around the home; and will hide inside walls, attics, or those rarely accessed crawl spaces. This process is called “overwintering”, aptly named because these pest like to spend their winters hiding out inside away from the cold.
Stink bugs are already looking for places to overwinter once the temperature drops in the fall. This is when they truly begin to make their way from nearby plants to the nearby buildings and structures.
