Keep Stink Bugs At Bay This Fall: What You Can Do

Posted on

Stink bugs can end up anywhere in your home. These pests are sneaky and you'll find them months later in a random room of your home crawling where you've least expected them. These pests are going to be more present in the fall months, but you can see them in summer months as well. These pests have their name due to the stinky odor they give off when they are smashed. It's best to get rid of these pests by flushing them down a toilet. Read on for what you can do to get rid of these pests if you have a problem with them.

Use Diatomaceous Earth

Sprinkle diatomaceous earth around your the perimeter of your home, both inside and out to help kill the bugs you have in and around your house. When these pests walk through this all-natural pesticide, it will end up killing them. This is a natural pesticide that is safe to use indoors and can help you to kill off other pests that you may be dealing with as well. 

Vacuum These Pests

Use your vacuum cleaner if you have these pests in your home. Vacuum the pests up so they don't give off the odors when you smash them, and if you vacuum them, you won't have to try to get too close to them. Once you vacuum them up, empty the canister outside to prevent them from escaping from your vacuum and getting back into your home. You may notice these pests in the warmer rooms of your home, especially on the windows or on your curtains. You may also see them a lot on outside windows that receive a lot of sunlight.

Keep Windows And Doors Closed

Leaving your windows and doors open is going to give these and other pests easy access to get inside. Close your windows and doors, and be sure your screens are closed tightly and are not damaged in any way. If you have your windows and doors open, also be sure the seals around these are not damaged in any way, as these pests can easily squeeze themselves inside your home.

If you have a problem with stink bugs, there are ways to get rid of them. If you continue to have issues with these pests, hire a pest control company to help you get rid of them and to show you how to prevent having future problems with these pests.
