How To Identify Stink Bugs

  • Stink bugs have a distinctive shield-like shape and are usually about half an inch long.
  • They are typically brown or gray in color, with a mottled or marbled appearance.
  • The Brown Marmorated Stink Bug, common in South Carolina, has distinctive white bands on its antennae and legs.
  • They emit a strong, unpleasant odor as a defense mechanism when threatened or crushed.
  • Stink bugs are often found on the exterior of homes or inside near windows and doors.

Stink Bugs Habits

  • Stink bugs are primarily outdoor pests but enter homes in large numbers to overwinter.
  • They are attracted to light and warmth, which often leads them indoors.
  • During warmer months, they feed on fruits, vegetables, and other plants, causing damage.
  • These pests are known for their "stink" which is released from glands located on their abdomen.
  • In homes, they are often found in attics, crawl spaces, and behind siding.

How To Prevent Stink Bugs

  • Seal cracks and openings around windows, doors, siding, and utility pipes to prevent entry.
  • Use screens on windows and doors to keep stink bugs out.
  • Reduce outdoor lighting at night, which attracts stink bugs.
  • Keep gardens well-maintained to reduce stink bug populations outside.
