How I Got Rid of Stink Bugs and Other Pests in My Home

I hate stink bugs! They are the worst to have in your home because you can’t kill them or they will stink your house up! Stink bugs or Halyomorpha halys are relatively new to Ohio, this Asian pest stinks like smelly feet when squashed or squeezed. If you toss it outside, it is likely to find its way back inside your house through tiny cracks, holes, or other openings in your home’s exterior.  Once we get our first Ohio frost, they will be invading our homes in search of warmth.

Maybe you have another pest issue like ants, cockroaches, rodents, and spiders! Nobody wants these in their homes!

We live in the woods that have had pests of all kinds creeping and crawling through our home – stink bugs, spiders of all kinds and sizes, and tons of ants! We discovered the TruGreen Home Pest Control program years ago and solved our insect and household pests problem. This is how I got rid of stink bugs and other pests in my home.

I can’t tell you how much nicer it is to not have a dozen stink bugs roaming our ceilings! I use to kill 10+ insects a day, now I hardly find anything in our home. We might have one or two stink bugs in our home the entire winter! We’ve used the TruGreen Home Pest Control for the past several years and it’s one of the best decisions we’ve made for our home.P1540106

This program is specifically geared to your home’s needs with a 3-step process.

STEP 1: Treat your home inside to help eliminate any pests already there
STEP 2: Create a pest barrier outside where most pest problems originate
STEP 3: Reinforce the pest barrier every quarter to keep pests out

For us, we only need TruGreen to spray our home about twice a year which is AMAZING since we live in the woods where there are many, many creepy crawly insects! Plus, we have cracks in the sidewalks around our home (a future home remodel project!) where plenty of insects could take refuge but not with the pest control! trugreen-bug

TruGreen comes to our house to spray the perimeter of our home a couple times a year (your home may need it quarterly). Our TruGreen expert sprays about 1 foot up the foundation and 2 feet out along the entire home. This creates a barrier that will keep insects from entering your home.

Typically pests like stink bugs, ants, cockroaches, rodents, and spiders get a foothold on the outdoors first an then look to your home for additional food and shelter. This is even more so as we approach Fall and cooler weather. Now is the perfect time to protect your home by scheduling your home to be serviced before the pests take refuge in your home for the winter!

As with all TruGreen services, your satisfaction is 100% guarantee or your money back. All you have to lose are annoying lawn and household pests and insects.
