Before you know it, summer is over. Before the leaves say goodbye to the warm summer sun, make sure that you are well-prepared for the pests that can be a nuisance during the season of fall. One of these pests is the stinking bug.

Although stink bugs do not pose serious health problems to homeowners, they can be a stinky nuisance. When they’re squashed, they create a smelly and repulsive odor. Stink bugs feed on fruits, the nymphs feed on leaves and fruits, though. They rummage your home during the late fall in search for a place to hide from the coming winter weather. Stink bugs could pose danger to the agricultural industry as they can destroy crops.

You can prevent stink bugs from entering your home by sealing the cracks around the window, utility pipes, chimneys, and other openings. The damaged screens should be repaired too to prevent them from coming in. To remove stink bugs that already entered your home, you can use a vacuum cleaner. However, if an infestation has already developed inside your home, it’s better to call a professional pest control expert from Parsons Pest Control.
