When Are Stink Bugs Active in New Castle County?

If your home does not currently have a stink bug problem, we have good news for you. Your home has not fallen victim to overwintering stinkbugs that were seeking shelter from the cold last fall. This is awesome, but it does not mean your home will be safe this year as stink bugs return and begin invading homes, sometimes in large numbers. Here are some good things to know.
 

Seasonality For Stink Bugs And Why They Will Soon Be Back

The longer our winter is, the shorter stink bug season will last. This direct connection is due to the fact that stink bugs can only live in above-freezing temperatures. When the weather gets cold, stink bugs are forced to find warm shelter or go dormant in tight, dry, and cold places. However, when the weather begins to heat back up, stink bugs will be reemerging to cause issues and bring annoyance once again. This could be as early as the beginning of spring or could be closer to summer, depending on when the colder weather decides to end this year. Either way, they will become a problem again. Here are some of the ways how.
 

Problems And Nuisance Factors Stink Bugs Bring To Homes

These problems usually include the nasty smell they give off when crushed; nevermind the way they crawl and fly everywhere when they have invaded. There are simple tips to learn how to avoid these problems.
