How to Identify Stink Bugs
A stink bug infestation can be unpleasant. Stink bugs are a non-native invasive species to New York and Long Island. Imported from Asia, the insect can harm your garden. Inside they can be an unsightly–and stinky–nuisance. Stink bugs have scent glands located under their abdomens and thorax. When crushed, stink bugs emit an unpleasant odor. Stink bugs enter a home, apartment, or building via exhaust vents, chimneys, and around the door and window trim.
Stink bugs are resistant to many over-the-counter insecticides, which is why a Stink bug infestation can be a real problem. Manual removal by a professional who can find their nesting sites and entry points is the most effective approach to getting rid of a Stink bug infestation. The National Pest Management Association reports anecdotal evidence that stink bugs have bitten people and that the bites are painful.
