Stink bugs reappearing in Baltimore homes

March 30, 2012|By Scott Dance

Stink bugs have begun to emerge from winter hibernation.

They often take refuge in only to creep into your bedroom once the weather warms, as they try to find their way outside again.

The pests have only been in this country since 1998, likely from China or Japan. They have only been in Maryland since 2009 or so. But their populations have grown rapidly since then.

Try flushing them rather than squishing. And make sure to seal any openings to your house they might sneak in through. Anyone had any success with any particular method to get rid of stink bugs?
