Stink Bug Control in the Vancouver and Portland Area

During seasonal shifts, stink bugs tend to invade homes and gardens, carrying around their distinct, pungent odor. Originally from East Asia and now prevalent across North America, these insects seek refuge indoors during the fall and winter, often to the chagrin of homeowners of the Pacific Northwest.
Beyond being a hassle for homeowners, stink bugs also threaten crops, leaving visible marks and deformities that impact the product’s quality. With the arrival of spring, they emerge en masse, congregating on light fixtures and windows to make their presence known.

Stink Bug Identification

Stink bugs are commonly identified by their shield-shaped bodies, measuring 1/2 to 3/4 inches long with earthy tones like brown, green, or gray colorations. 
You can easily identify these pests by the triangular or pentagon-shaped plate on their backs when they are at rest or flying. They’re social creatures, often gathering in groups, especially during warmer months or seasonal shifts. You’ll frequently see them clustered together on walls, windows, or near light sources.

Why Do Stink Bugs Smell?

Stink bugs have specialized scent glands situated on their abdomen. When these insects sense danger or are crushed, they release a smelly defensive chemical compound rich in aldehydes.
The smell is commonly described as pungent, somewhat musty, or reminiscent of a scent similar to cilantro. This distinct odor makes stink bugs less appealing to predators and is a crucial defense mechanism in their natural environment.
