Welcome to stink bug season! Sounds like fun doesn’t it? Stink bugs are from the genus known as Hemiptera. They are creatures equipped with piercing capability from their mouths and have straight antennae. The adult brown stink bug is about 1 inch in length and its body is nearly as wide as it is long. You will also notice a brown color in the adult stink bug.
Most stink bugs are real pests to fruits and vegetables so they are undoubtedly attacking the garden on which you have worked so hard. To feed off of fruit the stink bug pierces the skin and sucks out the juice. Not only are the stink bugs that we see in Chicagoland a pest in our gardens, but they are a nuisance in our homes as well. In late summer they begin seeking shelter indoors for the winter.
Now is the time to rid yourself of these nasty creatures. You need an expert to come to your home or office to make sure that the stink bug is not setting up a “winter retreat”.
