The brown marmorated stink bug is appropriately named because it's capable of emitting an offensive smelling liquid from a gland located in its thorax. Sometimes referred to as a shield bug, stink bugs are typically varying shades of brown and are recognized by a triangular shaped plate on their backs. Adults are a little less than an inch in length and are almost as wide as they are long.
Even though stink bugs are not harmful to humans and do not reproduce inside homes or other structures, they are considered a nuisance pest when they become active in fall and spring. If many of them are squashed or vacuumed up, their smell can be quite apparent.
Stink bugs may be difficult to control, so that’s why our pest control services include the necessary products and follow up visits for one fee. Our treatment methods consist of the following:
Initial Service - Detailed inspection of the interior and exterior of your home, then a targeted treatment of all areas where activity is present. Each Initial Service includes the application of seven exclusive Pest Guard steps, designed to rid your home of unwanted pests and keep them away.
Follow Up - Quarterly interior/exterior or exterior-only services will be scheduled as part of our annual Integrated Pest Management program. All Schendel Premium Care customers enjoy the benefit of our PestZero Guarantee. If pests return in between visits, Schendel returns for free.
Pest problems are generally difficult to resolve without the help of a pest professional. Beware when purchasing pesticides and other products online as many are not effective. Pesticides can be harmful to people and pets if they are misused or mixed improperly.
Schendel is 100% committed to helping you as soon as possible with your stink bug problems. In most cases, we can respond the same or very next day.
Schendel uses the least amount of material possible while still resolving the problem. We utilize natural products, baits and mechanical means as a form of treatment whenever possible. When conventional materials are required, we follow very stringent guidelines for the use of the product so that it poses no threat to people, pets or plants. All products are found to be effective and registered by the EPA and our service technicians will inform you of any specific safety measures that need to be taken.
We have standard pricing for all of our pest services, based on average size homes under 3500 square feet and where the infestation does not require more than the standard number of services. We will always make you aware of any price changes before we start your service. Sign up for your FREE quote today and see how much you can save with Schendel.

"I have used Schendel Services for more than 20 years and Tom Hobbs has been my serviceman the whole time. In the 20 plus years, this is the third house Tom has serviced.
He is an exceptional man and I trust him completely to do a good and thorough job. I don't know what your other service people are like, but if they are all like Tom you are a very lucky man.
Thank you for employing such a nice and honest man."
