Why Are Stink Bugs Such A Problem In Covington, TN?

Did you know that stinkbugs aren’t generally home pests? You might know this if you own farmland as stinkbugs are a big problem for farmers during the summer months. But now that we are heading into fall, stinkbugs are becoming more and more of a problem for homeowners. Are you curious why? If so, we have answers, coming right up.

Nothing Is Cozier Than A Warm Wall

Have you ever been outside in the cold and found a wall that the sun is shining directly on? Did you feel compelled to push yourself up against that wall for warmth? Stinkbugs love warmth too, and when fall comes around and the temperatures drop, they begin looking for this warmth wherever they can find it. Sometimes, they find it on the walls of our homes, sheds, and other structures. This is why it is common to see stinkbugs in mass numbers, clinging to walls outside of your home, but only in the sun.

From these warm walls, some stinkbugs find themselves wandering into homes. This is where they become a huge nuisance, especially because crushing them isn’t an option. With stinkbugs a careful capture-and-release strategy is necessary, assuming you don’t want your nostrils assaulted.

There is a way to detract stinkbugs from chilling on (or rather warming themselves on) your home this fall. It is with professional pest control services.
