What Are Stink Bugs?
Stink bugs—also known as shield bugs—feed on plants and crops. These pests are named for the distinct odor that they release when they are crushed or disturbed. The smell is a defensive mechanism designed to ward off predators and protect the pest from any potential harm.
Though they are considered pests, they are not dangerous. In some cases, they can trigger allergic reactions in people; however, this is rare. Generally speaking, the issue with stink bugs is the awful scent they emit when threatened. Another problem is that they can damage plants in and around your home, potentially leading to their death.
If left untreated, stink bugs can cause extensive damage to plants and crops by feeding on them for sustenance. Homeowners may also find stink bugs in their houses or yards, which is a sign that pest control methods are needed. Fortunately, our team is equipped with the knowledge and tools to safely remove stink bug infestations from any property. If you see (or smell!) any stink bugs on your property, be sure to call us as soon as possible.
