Brown marmorated stink bugs are invasive pests that are new to the United States. They’re native to Asia and were first found in Allentown, Pennsylvania in 1996. Since then, these pests have spread across the country. Although they’re not dangerous, they can release a foul odor when stressed and crushed. Therefore, homeowners need to find a gentle way to remove these pests from their properties. Stink bugs have a triangular plate on the back.
Stink bugs enter Pittsburgh dwellings for one reason. They’re trying to get away from the cold weather coming this winter. In other words, they fit into the overwintering pest category. Once they’ve invaded a home, they’re going to stay there until it gets warm again. Then, they’ll go outside. Just remember that they might get stuck in your home by accident.
