Recently, the BMSB has become a serious pests of fruit, vegetables and farm crops in the Mid-Atlantic region and it is probable that it will become a pest of these commodities in other areas in the United States. These insects are not known to cause harm to humans, although homeowners become alarmed when the bugs enter their homes and noisily fly about.
The stink bug will not reproduce inside structures or cause damages. If many of them are squashed or pulled into a vacuum cleaner, their smell can be quite apparent. If you interested in Stink Bug Control Morris County NJ contact Assure Pest Control.
