What are Stink Bugs?
Stink bugs are pests with a shield-like body and are often brown in color. They get their name from an unpleasant smell they emit when they are disturbed, feel threatened or are squished. This odor is caused by a chemical produced on the bug’s abdomen, and the chemical can be sprayed several inches and linger for hours.
The brown marmorated stink bug is one of the most common types in the U.S. You may find this pest throughout your house, office or commercial property, including under your couch, in the attic, or in warm, sunny spots. If you see these ugly bugs, it’s time to contact a pest control company.
Why Are They Bad For Your House or Business?
When disturbed or crushed, these bugs emit an unpleasant odor that you won’t want lingering in your home. They also damage crops, fruit trees, plants and gardens, making them especially problematic for the agricultural industry or anyone who enjoys gardening.
