Stink Bug


  • Most stink bugs prefer to be outdoors where they can feed on plants and fruit
  • The smell of a stink bug can be difficult to remove and may linger for several days
  • These bugs are originally from Asia and are considered an invasive species

Stink bugs are true bugs that have a characteristic shield shape. These bugs are an agricultural pest that feeds on plants and fruit, but they invade homes during the winter. The first warning sign is large numbers of the bugs gathering on the sunny side of the house during the fall. This can serve as a warning sign and give homeowners the chance to ensure that their home is properly sealed.

Indoors these bugs gather in large numbers and create a mess as well as an unpleasant order. The stink bug earned its name for the smelly chemical that it produces, it releases this liquid when threatened sometimes spraying it several inches. Stink bugs can be difficult to get rid of and infestations often require the aid of a trained pest control professional.

I just moved to the area and called Horizons for a quote. The office staff were very helpful in assessing my needs and getting me set up with an appointment. Horizons Professional Pest Control sent a technician the same day to take care of my problem. My technician, Chad, was very knowledgable and took so much time talking to me about what I needed and telling me how he was going to address those needs. So happy with my choice.
