Do you deal with stink bugs around, and sometimes inside, your Delaware home? If so, you're not alone. These insects can become pests, especially in the fall when temperatures begin to drop. Cold weather has the tendency to turn these crop pests into residential pests. Sadly, there isn't a whole lot you can do about it without professional help. The reasons stink bugs come into your yard aren't really within your ability to control. Here's the problem.
When it gets cold outside, stink bugs gather together on sun-warmed surfaces to stay warm. They'll do this on a rock in a meadow or on the side of a home. They don't have a preference. That means stink bugs will come into your yard for no other reason than to take advantage of the big, sun-warmed surfaces.
Having warm surfaces on your home isn't the only reason stink bugs may decide to come into your yard. They feed on the sap of plants. If you have lots of vegetation, your yard will be more appealing to stink bugs because it will have a desirable food source. Gardens, fruit trees, and other crops are even more inviting.
