Bug Busters USA shares tips to keep stink bugs outdoors

January 19th, 2015

Although stink bugs don’t present a health threat to people, the fact that they look to our homes as a winter vacation spot makes them a major nuisance. Bug Busters USA recommends the following prevention tips to minimize the chance of a stink bug invasion:

  • Seal cracks around windows, doors, electrical outlets, ceiling fans and light switches to prevent stink bugs from entering the home.
  • Replace outdoor lighting with yellow bulbs, which are less attractive to stink bugs.
  • Repair damaged window screens and install door sweeps on exterior doors.
  • Install screens over the chimney and attic vents.
  • Properly ventilate basements, attics, garages and crawl spaces. Consider using a dehumidifier.
  • If stink bugs have already entered a home, use a vacuum cleaner to remove them. Dispose of the vacuum bag immediately to prevent odor from permeating the area.
