Stink Bugs in Viriginia

Brown Marmorated Stink Bugs in VA

This insect is an invasive species brought to the United States from Asia. Within Virginia and other states, stink bugs have become significant pests due to the absence of natural predators and microorganisms that kept their populations in “check.”

Brown marmorated stink bugs feed on a wide range of tree fruits and seedpods as well as tomatoes, peppers, beans, corn, and soybeans. To homeowners, it is a nuisance pest since the adult bugs fly to houses seeking to find a protected place to overwinter. However, the bugs do not reproduce or multiply inside the home.

How to Prevent Stink Bugs

Prevention and exclusion is the best way to keep these bugs from getting inside. Once inside, there are several mechanical and light traps that will help reduce their numbers. Also, using vacuums to remove bugs works very well, but be sure to empty the vacuum bag after, so that the odor of dead bugs doesn’t become a problem. Learn More
