The Brown Marmorated Stink Bug, better known in our community as the “stinkbug”, is an unforgettable pest. Why is the stinkbug so unforgettable? First, and foremost, the pest generates a secretion, consisting of pyridine. This natural chemical plays an important role in the life of a stinkbug. It is utilized to deter predatory animals and insects from feeding on the species. While the stinkbug’s natural pyridine secretion is an effective pest deterrent, it is a nuisance for humans. Pyridine not only smells foul but also stains nearly every surface it comes into contact with.
It only takes a stinkbug less than an hour to muster up the human living space. Staining and stinking up your pricy possessions.
What Is The Most Effective Stinkbug Management Strategy?
Our professional pest control is well-suited for stinkbug infestation. Even though the stinkbug species do not colonize like the ant and termite species, they do cluster together. The stinkbug is what entomologists have classified as an “overwintering pest”. This is a pest that overwinters or hibernates throughout the winter season.
In its natural habitat, the overwintering pest can easily become under a predatory attack. As the winter season deepens, food becomes scarce for birds, assassin bugs, spiders, and bats. These predatory pests find the stinkbug tasty, even with its putrid aroma.
Are Stinkbugs Harmful To Humans?
No, stinkbugs do not transmit disease, even after home infiltration. The pests infiltrate residential and commercial establishments, not for food, but safe, discrete, dark, and warm shelters. They can infiltrate buildings through any exterior-to-interior opening.
Is Stinkbug Pesticide Eco-Friendly?
It can be when implemented properly. Conventional pesticides utilize synthetic chemicals to eradicate stinkbugs, unlike natural and organic pesticide formulas. To protect our clients and their families and pets throughout the conventional pesticide treatment process, we only treat vacant infested homes. The family is asked to vacant the impacted home prior to each treatment.
