I’ve somehow aquired Stink Bugs in my house. I don’t know how I got them, but I can’t seem to get rid of them. I’ve been killing several every day. I don’t know where they’re coming from either. I HATE them!!! Can you help me?
Grossed Out in Pennsylvania
Stink bugs are active year round. During the winter, they’ll emerge in living spaces of the home if you haven’t been doing stink bug control around the perimeter of the house. More details can be seen in our stink bug article but basically, you’ll need to start spraying with some D-Force Aerosol now to reduce the numbers you’re currently seeing in your room. We also recommend setting out some Stinkbug Traps. Come spring, you should spray the outside with the Cypermethrin and then again in the fall to prevent them from hibernating on and in your house again. Be sure to use a good Sprayer for the spraying and if possible, inspect crawl spaces or attics if you think they’re nesting in such areas. If you kill what’s active now, treat in the spring and then again next fall, you should be “stinkbug free” next winter.
