Brown Marmorated Stinkbugs Giving Pest Control Specialists Cause For Concern in Atlanta
(Newswire.net – January 24, 2013) Atlanta, GA -- Stinkbugs can be a real problem for gardeners. The Brown Marmorated Stinkbug invasion has been an issue for around the country for a few years now. The stinkbug comes from Asia and was first identified in the United States in 2001. Ten years later, it was believed to have spread to around 33 states. It was predicted that this bug would turn out to be an issue for Georgia.
This type of bug loves to feed on a gardener’s fruit and vegetables, which makes these impossible to sell for those that make a living off their land. They are particularly drawn to sweet fruits like apples and peaches.
Stinkbugs can be difficult to identify with the naked eye. They are around half an inch long, brown and round. Their strong and unpleasant odor can be perceived after stepping on them or vacuuming them. They may also release this smell while simply being handled. Homeowners should be careful with appliances they use to address this pest, since the smell is likely to permeate.
A homeowner may have a stinkbug infestation for a long time without realizing it because they might remain undisturbed. This means that they will never need to emit their smell. Their strong odor can be felt after stepping on them or vacuuming them.
Stinkbugs are not just a problem in gardens and vegetation-heavy areas. When autumn time rolls around, stinkbugs go into the home and often go into hibernation. You may be able to find stinkbugs flying around your light fixtures or in your attic. They are a difficult pest to kill and homeowners are advised to look for pest control professionals to fix their stinkbug problem. People with gardens should guard their home from possible stinkbug infestations. It is important to ensure that all windows are properly sealed and that there are screens over any vents and chimneys in the household.
Stinkbugs reproduce quickly after going into the home, releasing pheromones to attract others to them. Their foul smell and how much damage they can do makes them more than inconvenient. Their presence in your home may cause a lot of stress and there may even be rooms you steer clear off altogether to avoid this nasty smell. Pest control services in Atlanta and all around Georgia can help you find a way to deal with these nasty invaders without having to go crazy first.
