Fox Pest Control provides affordable stink bug removal and treatment throughout the Lubbock, TX area.
Stink bugs are characterized by their oval, or shield shape, brown color, and especially the smell they release when threatened or squished. Adult stink bugs can be up to ¾ inch long, or the size of a dime. They are found across the eastern half of the United States, as well as some of the south. They are a fairly new addition to the U.S. bug world, being native to eastern Asia and only showing up in the U.S. in the late 1990s. Because they are foreign, they have no natural predators in the U.S. which allow them to quickly spread and infest your home. Stink bug infestations are common in spring and summer, but a pest control professional will help you dispose of them quickly. Fox Pest Control’s expert Lubbock pest control services are here to help with your stink bug problem.

Getting rid of stink bugs is important because their populations fluctuate throughout the year. Stink bugs spend the winter in a safe, warm spot until the spring. As the temperature warms, all the stink bugs move into the open to breed and eat their favorite plants.
Because of their unique body chemistry, stink bugs have few natural predators because they smell and taste so foul. They tend to gather together during the fall to find a place to spend the winter, like wall voids or in soffits.

Stink bugs in Lubbock aren’t poisonous, don’t bite, and won’t contaminate food. However, stink bug removal is important because they can stink pretty bad and leave a nasty stain if squished.
Some stink bugs are considered a nuisance pest if they invade your home. The brown marmorated stink bug is the main nuisance species and is invasive in Lubbock and throughout the U.S.
Curious pets may lap up a few stink bugs, especially if the bugs gather in a specific area. Some pets may have a negative reaction to stink bugs and could vomit.
Most stink bugs in Lubbock are herbivores. They eat leaves, flowers, and fruits. Pest species like the brown marmorated stink bug and harlequin bug can be quite devastating to crop fields. Omnivorous stink bugs include the spined soldier bug and the two-spotted stink bug; they’re beneficial to gardens by eating pest insects.
They produce a foul-smelling chemical from their abdomen to keep predators from coming too close. Some species can spray the chemical several inches! These little stinkers are aptly named.
Stink bug spraying as a DIY option is popular, as are many home remedies for stink bugs, but they aren't always the most effective way to get rid of stink bugs or prevent them from coming back. Our stink bug exterminators in Lubbock, TX are experts at removing them and helping to keep them away. Contact Fox at (806) 478-0002 or email us for a free stink bug inspection, same-day service*, and a 100% guarantee.
