Stink Bugs in the Yard? They’re Not the Only Insects Lurking

The autumn season has fledged its full, brightly colored wings. Northeastern falls are some of the best in the entire nation, with lots of chilly days and explosions of vibrant colors. The sharp bite of winter isn’t too far off, and while some might see this as a bad thing, it’s great from a pest control perspective. Our region is rife with biting insects during the summer months, making outdoor life a true struggle most of the time. With cooler weather means fewer insects, so make sure you take some time to enjoy the outdoors while they remain pleasant this fall!

Not all insects vanish during the fall, though. As you may have noticed, stink bugs are a common sight during autumn and indoors during the winter, but why is this? Stink bugs are an invasive insect that was introduced to the United States during the 1990s in a shipping container. With no natural predators in our part of the world, stink bug populations have grown almost unrestricted, infiltrating yards and homes throughout the nation. When warm weather vanishes, these insects search desperately for shelter, and our homes are the perfect place to overwinter. While stink bugs are relatively harmless to our health, they aren’t the only ones that remain active and fall. Ticks are also around in October.

Tick control is an important consideration in fall, spring, and summer

Ticks often search for a final blood meal before they vanish into their winter abodes, meaning you need to stay wary now and in future autumns. These creatures present a clear danger to your health, as opposed to stink bugs, so make sure to keep them at the front of your mind for future tick seasons. Fortunately, tick control from professionals is a great way to stay defended against ticks.
