As the summer starts to cool down, you may begin to find your home invaded by with stinkbugs. Fortunately, the Brown Marmorated Stink Bug is no more than a nuisance bug for homeowners; unfortunately dealing with them is a nuisance. During the fall season, the bugs burrow in your home to survive the winter, and pesticide treatment during the summer months will simply not be effective. Common store-bought stink bug trappers have appeared alongside home remedies, but the big question is, are they an effective means of reducing the stink bug population in your home? The answers can vary tremendously, and while the stink bug population may be reduced, these cannot stop an infestation.
Following are some tips if you decide to purchase a stink bug trapper.
Do your research and read customer reviews. Get a better idea of how to properly utilize the specific brand and model of the stink bug trapper you have.
Put it in a place where it will trap the most bugs. If you have an attic or basement, try it there first and see what kind of results you get.
Try it yourself. There are plenty of homemade remedies that can be made with materials you may already have, and can make very cheaply before buying a trap.
It is important to remember that these solutions will not fix the problem, and results will vary. Cooper also provides a Stink Bug Prevention program from August 15th to September 30th that is guaranteed to reduce Stink Bug population by 90%-100%.
