Professional Stinkbug Pest Control In Santa Monica California
Stinkbugs get their name from a foul safety mechanism secretion. When the stinkbug becomes stressed or injured, it will emit the secretion to deter animals and humans from getting too close. The Brown Marmorated Stink Bug “BMSB” is better known as the stinkbug in Santa Monica. In fact, most people will freely admit they are unfamiliar with the technical term in reference to the stinkbug.
The stinkbug originates from Asia. The first US sightings were reported in Allentown, Pennsylvania in 1996, according to evidence. The adult grows up to 0.75 (¾) inches in length. The marmorated coloration and triangular-shaped plate make the insect highly identifiable.
The wings are covered with a shell-like material to protect the insect from injuries sustained during flight and combat. While the stinkbug is rarely provoked by one of its kind, predators are plentiful. A spray of its foul-smelling secretion is enough to deter predators from getting too close.
Why Is My Property Under A Stinkbug Attack?
Stinkbugs belong to an insect classification known as “overwintering pest.” The insects that belong to this classification spend the winter season in a dormant state known as overwintering. Instead of spending the winter outdoors in a deep sleep, the stinkbug does whatever is necessary to infiltrate buildings in search of a warm indoor hiding place.
Do Stinkbugs Carry Diseases Or Parasites?
No, stinkbugs are not disease-transmitting insects. The insect’s most intrusive characteristic is its foul odor. The secretion not only smells offensive, but also has properties that may stain the upholstery, drapery, and other materials.
If at all possible, it is crucial to not injure the stinkbug during the removal process. Doing so will result in an odor that you will never forget.

What Can I Do To Prevent A Repeat Stinkbug Infestation?
