1. Identifying Stink Bugs in Your Space

In southern Ontario, two main species of stink bugs are commonly found: the brown marmorated stink bug (Halyomorpha halys) and the green stink bug (Chinavia hilaris).

When checking for stink bugs in your space, keep an eye out for shield-shaped insects that can be up to 17 millimetres long. These bugs have brown bodies with a mottled pattern.
Our expertise in stink bug removal highlights the need for thorough inspections to find these pests in areas like vents, chimneys, and wall openings. By identifying these entry points, you can stop stink bugs from getting into your space and causing issues.
Count on Icon Pest to help you identify and get rid of stink bugs, creating a pest-free environment for you to enjoy.

2. Understanding Stink Bug Behaviour

To effectively manage stink bugs, it’s important to understand their behaviour. Stink bugs are opportunistic feeders that like to gather on walls and window sills. They also seek shelter in protected areas during the winter and breed continuously throughout the season. Stink bugs have a wide range of food preferences, feeding on fruits, vegetables, and other plants (including house plants) indiscriminately.

Their habit of congregating indoors can be a nuisance for homeowners. During the winter, they hide under debris, tree bark, and buildings, only to emerge in large numbers when it gets warmer. Female stink bugs lay eggs in clusters on plants and buildings, leading to ongoing infestations as new generations hatch throughout the year. 

Understanding these behaviours is key to effectively controlling stink bug populations. By knowing how they behave and reproduce, you can take proactive steps to protect your space from these persistent pests.

3. Prevention Tips to Keep Stink Bugs Away 

When it comes to keeping stink bugs away from your home, prevention is key. Start by sealing up cracks, gaps, and openings around windows, doors, and walls to stop stink bugs from getting inside. Putting screens on windows and vents can also help keep them out. 

Use weather stripping to block off gaps under doors and around utility openings to make it harder for stink bugs to sneak in. Keep your yard tidy by getting rid of debris, leaf piles, and overgrown plants where stink bugs like to hide.

Stink Bugs Often Find Their way Into Homes

While stink bugs primarily inhabit agricultural fields and gardens, they can also make their way indoors. Stink bugs are mostly active during the warmer months, but they may still find their way inside during the winter to escape the cold, seeking shelter and food.

A common hiding spot for stink bugs in homes is in dark corners, such as those found in closets, basements, attics, or unused rooms. These areas provide them with the darkness and seclusion they seek, making it easier for them to find a safe place to rest during the day.

Their affinity for houseplants makes them troublesome. Stink bugs are known to feed on a variety of plants, including fruits, vegetables, and ornamental plants. When they invade a home, they may target houseplants as a food source, causing damage to the leaves and fruits. This can be particularly frustrating for plant enthusiasts who have spent time and effort cultivating their indoor gardens.

 

Frequently Asked Questions 

Can stink bugs cause any damage to my home or belongings?

Stink bugs can damage your home and belongings by staining surfaces, emitting odours, and harming plants. Icon Pest takes a thorough approach to identifying and controlling these pests, protecting your property from potential harm. 

How long does it typically take for Icon Pest's treatment approach to show results in reducing stink bug populations?

It usually takes a few weeks for Icon Pest’s treatment approach to start reducing stink bug populations. We identify different species, signs of activity, and entry points to create a comprehensive strategy for effective control. This helps ensure that your home stays free from stink bugs. 

Are there any specific areas of the home where stink bugs are more likely to enter?

Stink bugs often enter homes through cracks around windows, doors, utility penetrations, siding, and soffits. These openings make it easy for them to get inside. To keep stink bugs out, it’s a good idea to check these areas regularly and seal any gaps you find. This simple step can help prevent infestations in your home. 

Can stink bugs pose any health risks to humans or pets?

Stink bugs can be a nuisance for humans and pets as they release a strong odour when disturbed. This odour can cause irritation or allergic reactions if inhaled or in direct contact. It’s important to handle stink bugs with caution to avoid any potential health risks. 

Eliminate Attraction Points

Stink bugs are attracted to homes for various reasons. Here are a few factors that can draw them in:

1. Warmth

Stink bugs are attracted to warm environments, particularly during the colder months. They seek shelter and warmth, making your home an appealing destination.

2. Light

Stink bugs are attracted to light sources. They may be drawn to well-lit areas outside your home, such as porch lights or windows, and then find their way inside.

3. Food Sources

Stink bugs are plant feeders, and they are particularly attracted to fruits, vegetables, and ornamental plants. The nearby food sources may entice stink bugs if you have a garden or fruit trees.

4. Entry Points

Stink bugs can enter your home through small cracks, gaps, or openings in doors, windows, or foundations. If your home has easy access points, it increases the likelihood of stink bugs finding their way inside.
