Stink Bugs

Stink Bug Treatment

OPC can handle the removal of stink bugs through our Stink Bug Reduction Service. Contact us today to schedule your appointment.

OPC employs a Stink Bug Reduction Service which can help reduce the population of stink bugs in the home. However due to the nature of stink bugs and the constant pressure of these insects total elimination is impossible to achieve. Our service is designed to treat around all windows, doors and eaves of the structure to reduce the population entering the structure in the most common areas. This service is intended to reduce the amount of stink bugs inside the structure and unfortunately cannot prevent stink bugs from resting on the exterior of the structure. Exclusion work is also key for the prevention of stink bugs from entering the structure. Our handyman and remodeling division can provide help in this area.

Please contact our office for more information regarding our Stink Bug Reduction Service and pricing.

Stink Bug Prevention

  1. Seal cracks around windows, doors, outlets, ceiling fans, & light switches.
  2. Replace outdoor lighting with yellow bulbs, which are less attractive to stink bugs.
  3. Repair damaged window screens and screen attic and crawlspace vents.
  4. Use a vacuum to eliminate stink bugs indoors. Seal the vacuums’ contents in a plastic bag and dispose of it immediately.

Characteristics of Stink Bugs

What does a stink bug look like? 

Stink bugs have triangular or “shield”-shaped bodies that are mottled grayish-brown in color and are typically approximately 3/4” long.

Where does a stink bug live?

Adult stink bugs enter homes and other structures in the late fall to seek shelter from the winter weather. They reemerge from overwintering sites in early spring and try to exit, but sometimes enter living spaces instead. Like other overwintering insects they often congregate in masses on the sides of buildings.

Are stink bugs dangerous?

Stink bugs can become harmful to the agricultural industry, as they can destroy crops. Stink bugs are named for the odor they emit as a defense against predators and do not pose serious property or safety threats to homeowners. Their tendency to invade homes in high numbers can be a nuisance.
