Today, they’re found across the United States and Canada. When it gets cold outside, you can guarantee that these overwintering pests will try to sneak into your home.
Since they’re only half an inch to three-quarters of an inch, they’ll find many entry points. Working with a professional is the only surefire way to eradicate them.
What Causes Stink Bug Infestations?
The reason these pests want to invade your home is simple. Stink bugs are members of the overwintering pest category. Stink bugs cannot tolerate cold temperatures, so they don’t want to get stuck outside. Instead, they’re going to find a way to sneak into nearby buildings where it’ll be warm. When the temperatures increase, the stink bugs in your home will try to go back outside. Once there, they’re going to start damaging your plants.
Health Risks Linked To Stink Bugs
The stink bugs in your home can cause certain problems, but they’re not dangerous. Thankfully, stink bugs are not going to expose you to any health hazards. These overwintering pests do not bite or transmit illnesses. Still, it is wise to suck them up with your vacuum cleaner as quickly as possible.
