Please be sure to read the product label of any insecticide you choose to use to get information on the personal protective safety gear you will need. In most situations, it is recommended that you wear long pants, a long sleeved shirt, closed toe shoes with socks, chemical resistant gloves, and goggles. In areas where ventilation is poor, a manufacturer may recommend you wear a mask or a respirator. We have put together two different safety kits that will make selecting the correct safety gear easier for you.
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.
