Say goodbye to sweltering summer temperatures and humidity, and say hello to stink bugs! As much as the cooler fall temperatures are welcomed, stink bugs have become a less-welcomed part of Autumn in Maryland.
With shorter days and cooler weather, Autumn is a great time to cuddle up under a blanket with a warm drink and relax. Unfortunately, plenty of pests also like to cuddle up in warm places this time of year — particularly in your home! Drawn to the warmth and possibly the lure of food and water, many of our multi-legged friends are simply looking for an excellent place to hole up for the winter. Here are four bugs, in particular, that might find their way inside.
For homeowners, stinkbugs are generally more of an unpleasant nuisance. Though they can do significant damage to gardens, they are harmless to both humans and structures. That said, if you see them in substantial numbers, you might have a problem.
Fall weather is almost here, and for many of us that means raking leaves, pumpkin spice everything, and stinkbugs. That’s right, everyone’s least favorite fall invader will soon arrive (if they haven’t already). While stinkbugs aren’t particularly dangerous to humans, they aren’t exactly pleasant to have around. After all, they’re called stinkbugs for a reason.
What’s brown, stinky, and wants to come into your home? It’s the aptly named brown marmorated stink bug, of course! Typically living outdoors when it’s warmer, as soon as September rolls around the stink bugs love to come inside to find comfort in your home. Unfortunately, that can make things a little uncomfortable for us humans.
