Hogarth's Pest Control specializes in all types of industries, residential and commercial.
The Brown Marmorated Stink Bug (BMSB) originated in China, Japan, Taiwan, and the Koreas. It wasn’t until 1998 that they were first discovered in the United States. The BMSB is primarily an agricultural pest found in orchards but will invade structures in the fall to escape the cold.
BMSBs are not a major problem in Northern lower-Michigan but can be a nuisance in the southern parts of the state. They do not do any damage to the structure or bite, but they do stink—hence their name.
They will pack into a home by the thousands and can create a major nuisance and smell issue. The best method to prevent stink bugs from entering a structure is proper exclusion.
Hogarth’s is well-versed in varying types of exclusion for residential and commercial properties. We will seal entrance holes around pipes, windows, ridge vent and soffits. It is important to note that exclusion alone will not always fix the issue; the home will need to be treated to keep stink bugs away from the structure.
