The Stink Bugs Habits
The brown marmorated stink bug is an invasive, non-native species that came to the United States in 1996. They have, over the last few years, become a very common insect. Recently, the population has exploded, meaning the need for effective removal efforts has too.

The stink bug is a problematic pest when it comes to fruit and vegetable crops as well as the flowers people plant around our homes. The adult stink bug will eat fruits while nymphs eat the stems and leaves of plants. An infestation of stink bugs can lead to a total loss of crops and plants if the population is not controlled.
Stink bugs not only stink and enter your home but they can do sever damage to your gardens and crops.

Damage Caused by Stink Bugs
In The Home
Fortunately, stink bugs do not cause structural damage to homes like many other insects do. They do, however, hibernate in homes, and no one wants an army of stink bugs to emerge in the spring.
So why is this bug called a “stink bug”? The reason is they produce a very foul smell when crushed or threatened. When stink bugs infest your home, call the stink bug removal service professionals at Barnes Wildlife Control. Our team will have your home free of insects and back to normal in no time.
There are glands in a Stink Bug’s legs that emanate an odor. Be careful, when you squash a stink bug the odor is worse.
Around The Home
Adult stink bugs feed on all types of plant life, but they prefer fruit plants, vegetable plants, and trees. The nymphs feed mainly on the leaves and stems of plants and flowers. A severe infestation of stink bugs can cause so much damage that a farmer can loose an entire crop.
Since this insect is a non-native, invasive species, stink bug control efforts are a highly-necessary practice. If these issues are not properly controlled by a licensed and trained pest control company, trees and plant life in and around your home will be in jeopardy. Often times, an entire plant or tree may die if left unprotected.
Stink bugs love eating various leaves, flowers, fruit, and insects.
