Stink Bugs and Box Elder Bugs

Customer Preparation
These, although seasonal, are extremely hard to get rid of. They can come by the thousands. DO NOT SMASH THEM. The infestation can be reduced greatly by treating, but the following are necessary on the homeowner’s part to expect good results. Try to find and close any accessible area or holes that they can access, chimney flue, attic fans and dormers. They can get through exceedingly small holes. They can be simply vacuumed up or put in a bottle of water and disposed of. Box Elder bugs are remarkably similar, although they are more likely seen on the sunny side of a house and like maple trees.
