We have been invaded by these bugs. We have never seen them or ever had them before this year. We live near the train tracks at the city limits of Buford and Sugar Hill. Are they passing through and will they go away on their own or how do we get rid of them? I bought some potting soil and placed the bag beside our water oak tree from Friday until Monday. Behind the bag when I moved it were probably 5000 of these bugs.
Whether you have STINKBUGS or KUDZU BUGS, both are definitely here to stay in Georgia. And as our online articles explain, once they mark your property as a good place to overwinter, it’s likely they’ll return year after year. In both our articles, you’ll learn the CYPERMETHRIN is the best product to apply where you see them. It’s labeled for use on trees, plants and other landscaping as well as the home. I’d do a thorough inspection of the property making sure to treat any nest sites you find. I’d also treat the house – especially the siding – since this is where they’ll congregate as our local temperatures drop. We’re already getting calls on this pest and we expect customers to be reporting them as invading for the next month since fall will be changing to winter. Add a little SPREADER STICKER to the tank mix for faster results too since both of these bugs have tough, hard shells causing the chemicals to take a lot longer than normal to penetrate and work.
