There are a few pests where some basic spraying and other bits of attentiveness can go a long way to preventing any issues in your home, and two great examples here are boxelder bugs and stink bugs. Known for a few different issues they may create, both these bugs may look to invade homes for various reasons – but with some basic knowledge and prevention, this won’t be an issue for you.
At Logan Extermination, we’re happy to offer various spraying and insecticide treatments, as well as numerous other pest control services, to keep these and any other pests far away from your Logan home. Here are some basics on boxelder bugs and stink bugs, plus how spraying is helpful and some other basic prevention methods to keep in mind.
For those unaware, boxelder bugs are bugs commonly found on or around tree boxelders, as well as other maples and ash trees. Though not completely dangerous to your home, they can easily become a nuisance and even cause some damage if they’ve been able to get in.
Boxelder bugs enter homes and other structures primarily for warmth, then emerge as the weather gets warm during the spring. Their presence outside the home will often signal possible presence inside, though this is not a guarantee.
For outdoor boxelder bug issues, spraying is an important part of pest control. Spraying helps keep any bugs away, and generally works well in many cases. You should also think about themes like sealing off your home, making sure all cracks and crevices are blocked off, inspecting any outdoor furniture for bugs before bringing it in – even if bought new.
Named and well-known for their odor when squished, the stink bug is another potential pest in Logan that may look to enter a home. Like boxelder bugs, these bugs spend much of their time on or around trees and outdoor plants, but may sneak indoors for warmth or food more easily than the boxelder bug.
For stink bugs, spraying is another important part of pest control. As with boxelder bugs, sealing up any cracks and crevices in your home’s exterior is important, as well as inspecting furniture you bring into your home – even if brand new. Additionally, you should also look to keep outdoor vegetation and plants trimmed back, as this may help reduce their presence and the chance they’ll find your home inviting.
