Your home or building, unfortunately, becomes a natural refuge to stink bugs and ladybugs seeking shelter from the elements. They are small enough to crawl through narrow cracks and crevices without you noticing, especially during the cold months.
While these insects don’t typically cause any harm to your health, they would quickly turn into a terrible nuisance.
More than a Minor Irritation
For instance, stink bugs emit a strong noxious odor that can fill a small room. Unfortunately, they are also very attractive to pets and curious babies who essentially stuff anything they see into their mouths.
Don’t worry. Stink bugs are not toxic, but they can cause severe reactions in some pets, such as excessive drooling due to the strong chemical smell and the foul taste. In addition, they have no natural predators, so they can quickly multiply.
A single female may live from 6-8 months, but she can produce 400 eggs during their lifetime. Each of these hatchlings will become an adult in only 40 days. If left untreated, you will have a major problem on your hands.
Once threatened, they will excrete a stinky odor that can last up to three hours.
Meanwhile, ladybugs seem harmless enough. But once a single insect finds its way into your home, it will release pheromones to attract other ladybugs. In addition, a ladybug has a longer lifespan than a stink bug since it can live up to a year.
A single female ladybug can produce up to 300 eggs and hatch in as short as two days up to ten days.
If left untreated, you will have a ladybug colony in your home.
Stink & Ladybug Control
Stink bugs and ladybugs will stain upholstery or carpets and leave droppings around the house. Your knee-jerk reaction may be going to the store to purchase bug sprays to get rid of these insects.
You may unknowingly put your small kids or pets to harmful chemicals. Exposure to insecticides may result in the following:
- Eye or nose irritation
- Nose or throat damage
- Lung irritation
- Hives or other skin irritation
The worst thing is there’s no guarantee that you flushed out the stink bug or ladybug colonies after multiple bug sprays. So, you only repeatedly expose your loved ones to harmful chemicals without showing effective results.
Eastern Pine Pest is one of the few companies in Massachusetts using environmentally safe methods to eliminate stink bugs or ladybugs. We avoid synthetic insecticides or pesticides in all our treatment programs.
- We will seal all crevices and other narrow openings where the insects can crawl into
- We will winterize your home since they cannot survive the low temperature
We will also treat the surrounding vegetation, typically serving as a refuge and food for these insects. Once we cut off the support system necessary for their survival, they would have no choice but to relocate.
Clearing your home of stink bugs and ladybugs is only half the battle. The most important thing is making sure they don’t return to bother you again. So, finally, we bug-proof your property with our proven treatment program.
In fact, we are so confident of our work that we will give you a 365-day warranty. In the event that the insects return, we provide another treatment at no cost.
