Do you have a lot of trees and shrubs on your property or in the nearby vicinity of your neighborhood? If that is the case, then you may want to consider the fact that one way to get rid of stink bugs would be through small-scale micro-deforestation – which is the process of removing excessive trees and shrubs from your premises. Stink bugs may be lurking in these trees and shrubs, and may even be laying eggs therein. Stink bugs lay their eggs where they remain hidden in plain sight, on the underside of leaves.
So it goes without saying that if you want to get rid of stink bugs, then you may want to consider your options when it comes to reducing the greenery near your home. While stink bugs may or may not ever bother to enter your home during the spring and summer months, it is primarily the autumn season that you need to be most concerned about. As the weather gets cooler, they will instinctively start scouting their environment for warm places to take up domicile for the onset of the autumn and winter months. If they have made homes for themselves in the trees near your house, then that will only increase the likelihood that your house will be the first stop on their hunt for a new home during the colder months.
Now, if removing trees and shrubs from on or near your property is not practical (either because it is just too costly for you to remove them or because the trees just don’t belong to you), then your next step would be to engage in regular pruning to remove excessive leaves and branches. Not only does this help to keep your property looking more aesthetically pleasing, but it also removes the available vegetative real estate that they can seek refuge on.
If removing trees and shrubs are not practical either, then your next recourse would be to spray them with pesticides, which should effectively kill or forcibly effect any pests that are inhabiting them.
If even that is not possible, then you may want to consider setting up stink bug traps outside near your trees and shrubbery. These traps are usually made with a combination of stink bug aggregation pheromones and heat-emitting lights that are specially designed to attract them. Hopefully any stink bugs that happen to be present in the surrounding greenery should be attracted toward the trap, where they will either be killed on contact or will become trapped into a container which you can later use to dispose of them.
The bottom line is that if you are suffering from a problem of excessive stink bugs, then one way how to get rid of stink bugs is to tackle the problem at its source: identify where they are coming from, which is very likely the trees nearby your property.
There are many ways how to get rid of bugs. With a little bit of patience, courage, and persistence, you can overcome this nuisance.
