Stink Bug Season Is Almost Here!
Not very excited about the upcoming stink bug season? Did you even know that stink bug season is fast approaching? OK, most people do not care all that much about this season, but you should know how to prepare for it. Here is everything you need to know about this dreadful season.
The problem with stink bugs is that they are invasive, as they enter buildings in large numbers to find warmth over the winter months. The worst part about their migration inside is that they emit a terrible odor from the glands that are on their thorax when they are threatened, squashed or even handled. That makes them a stinky nuisance to both home and business owners. The other problem with stink bugs is that they damage fruit and vegetable crops like apples, peaches, pecans, beans, peppers, berries and cotton. Many different kinds of crops are in danger when stink bugs decide to invade properties.
So, how do they get into a home or business? Through cracks and crevices in the building’s foundation. As well as gaps around exterior windows and doors, likewise open spaces around utility entrances, air conditioners and exhaust fans. If there is a tiny opening, they can get in. You will want to make sure to seal and close up all of those entry points to help prevent stink bugs from invading your property.
