Stink Bugs Smell Bad When Stepped On!

Stink bugs are new to the Northwest and Portland. They showed up approximately 6 years ago, and their populations have been growing steadily ever since. These bugs are larger than the Box Elder bugs and have a Diamond shape to them and smell horrible if you crush them. They have a similar biology to box elder bugs, but are much more difficult to kill and control. 

Window track treatments seem to work best at keeping them out of the home.  Burton Pest Control bombs the stink bombs (bugs).
