Stink Bug

If you live in the Mid-Atlantic States then in the last year you have discovered a new pest wrecking havoc on your home and garden. The stink bug all but unknown to the United States until a few short years ago has spread its mass population from coast to coast with severe infestation levels throughout the Mid-Atlantic.

The brown marmorated stink bug has a great defense mechanism, when they are threatened or killed they release an odor. A REALLY bad odor! Unfortunately, stink bugs don’t just stink they attack gardens and fruit trees damaging foliage. They also suck the juice out of fruits such as peaches and pears leaving behind damaged fruit hard to sell at market.

Stink Bug Trap

When fall hits and most pests disappear for winter, stink bugs invade your home looking for a nice warm place to hide out. Then on nice warm days in late winter they come out in mass numbers from your attic, baseboards and window casings. While stink bugs don’t bite, sting or transmit diseases making them harmless to humans they do smell and are a nuisance.

Since stink bugs are new to this country they have no natural or chemical enemies. Scientists jumped on the issue last year trying to develop a solution to this stinky pest. Finally there is ananswer. RESCUE!® a pest control solutions manufacture has released the Stink Bug Trap. This highly effective trap can be used outdoors with a pheromone lure or indoors with a light attachment (sold separately) providing a year round solution.

Easy to setup, the Stink Bug Trap has a clear chamber letting you know at a glance when the trap needs to be emptied.

    I bought one of these traps, and I have to say at first I was sceptic. I hung it for 3 days and caught 3-4 bugs…(this was back in early August when the nymphs first appear). Got on Facebook to the “Rescue” page and they told me to send pictures, and also check out their pictures of the best way to hang it… They suggested a few modifications to how I hung the trap and I have to say, within 3 hrs I had about 25. bugs. Now, I empty it every other day. It’s not fun to empty it (you have to dump the live ones in soapy water before they fly away. But where last year my back windows were covered all day, now only have a few… the Key is location, location, location… I recommend this trap if you have a problem that is larger than just a nuisance. (And no.. I have no affliliation with Resue, its production, business, or product)
