When & Where to Look

Stinkbugs are fairly large for an insect so they are pretty easy to spot. Stink bugs become most noticeable in late summer through fall as the insects try to find a warm place to spend their summer.

Outdoors: check around window frames, door frames, vents, eaves and on the wall with the most sun exposure.

Indoors: stink bugs like to squeeze into cracks, crevices, voids, false ceilings, attics, folds in drapes, hollow curtain rods and other places that go undisturbed. As the heat kicks on to warm the structure or spring arrives, stink bugs warm up too and come out of hiding. They begin to make a nuisance of themselves as they fly towards lights or gather around window frames to try to get outside.
