Tips for homeowners about how to prevent stink bugs from getting into your house - and what to do once they've entered.
- Seal cracks around windows, doors, siding, utility pipes and other openings.
- If they've already entered, try to find the openings where they got in. Typically, stink bugs will emerge from cracks under or behind baseboards, around window and door trim, and around exhaust fans or lights in ceilings. Seal these openings.
- Experts advise against using insecticides inside, especially pesticides that are intended only for outdoor use.
- Don't use aerosol-type foggers. They will not prevent more insects from emerging, and if used incorrectly they can cause illness in people and pets.
