Stink Bugs Infestations

When painting the exterior of a house there are many insects and bugs you will encounter and one of the newest ones are the Stink Bugs, the brown marmorated stink bug. They have literally littered window sills that have to be painted. You must clean them off before painting. They really pose no harm to the house but are a serious problem for farmers and their crops.

These stink bugs are not native to the United States, they are from China, Japan, Korea and Taiwan. They are of the Insect family Pentatomidae and known as an agricultural pest. In 1996 it appeared in Allentown PA which is the eastern part of Pa.

These pest can be extremely annoying as they enter the house and can be in the hundreds all over walls and windows. When crushed they do emitt a foul smelling odor hence the name "Stink Bug".
