Stink Bug Control

Let Waltham® put a stop to these foul-smelling home invaders.

About Stink Bugs

Stink bugs are typically about a half an inch long and are a mottled brown color. They are characterized by their shield-shaped bodies and the odor they emit when threatened or crushed.

Stink bugs are not threatening to humans, but they can be a nuisance by damaging gardens and ornamental plants. They are common home invaders, with large numbers slipping through cracks around entry points—particularly during the fall. These insects release an unpleasant odor when they are threatened, and their foul smell can worsen when they are crushed.

Detecting Stink Bugs

Stink bugs are easy to identify with their signature shield-shaped torso. They also tend to invade in large numbers. So, if you see one stink bug, you’re likely about to find a lot more. Inside, these pests are typically around doors, windows and other entry points. Outside, stink bugs like to sunbathe on the sides of buildings.

Preventing Stink Bugs

Eliminating entry points is your best bet for preventing stink bugs from infiltrating your home or business. Make sure to seal windows and doors, and ensure all screens are securely in place without tears. Using weather stripping on doors can also help keep these smelly pests out.
