Fight Back Against Stink Bugs: Seek Professional Help

in stink bugs pests in your home bug proofing and prevention

Pests can be quite a nightmare for homeowners. Bugs, like cockroaches, can actually live without a head for up to seven days, and it will only die because without a mouth it can’t eat or drink! Although your home might not be at risk of being overrun by cockroaches, you still have to avoid other nasty pests like stink bugs.

Stink bugs are quite gross not only because of their creepy-crawly approach to being a bug, but because they don’t smell all that great, either. Here are a few ways to get rid of these unwanted stink bugs from your home.

Close off any access points into your home

Although you probably can’t handle the actual extermination process of getting rid of these bugs, at least not safely, you can certainly do your best to prevent them from getting inside in the first place. Seal up all access points so no more bugs can enter your home. That includes filling up small gaps and cracks inside the walls, near doors, and surrounding your home’s windows. A little caulk can go a long way.

If you’re the type of person who enjoys throwing the windows wide open during the summer, make sure screens are securely installed on all open windows.

Clean your house

Like cockroaches and ants, stink bugs thrive in dirty environments. If you don’t want to roll out the welcome mat, then it’s important to keep your home as clean and crumb-free as possible. It doesn’t take too much effort to tidy up after yourself, and the benefits are clear — your home won’t be infested by gross bugs. Don’t let procrastination result in a stink bug-infested home. Clean up your house, especially areas that get a lot of foot traffic, including rooms with lots of windows and doors, and any room where you eat.
