The Stink Bug is a pest that will devour fruits and vegetables. The largest threat in the foreseeable futures is the growth of the stink bug population and the destruction of fruit bearing trees and vegetable crops in Westchester, Rockland, Putnam and Greenwich, CT. Warm conditions could generate up to three generations of these pest insects in a year.
The stink bug is also a pest insect in homes. They are able to enter the home through small cracks and openings. Stink bugs can be found entering from cracks under or behind baseboards, around window and door trim, and around exhaust fans or lights in ceilings. Often times when they do find their way into a home there can be a very large infestation of these pests. Call a QualityPro to help you with your stink bug control, call us today at (914) 877-3006.
