Don't Let Them Buggers Stink Up Your House Girl!!!

TERRO® Launches New Line of Stink Bug Killers 
Stop Foul Home Invasions with Ready-to-Use Stink Bug Killer Sprays

LITITZ, PA—Nov. 12, 2012— Stink bug invasions have been on a steady rise since they arrived in the U.S. 15 years ago, and entomologists are predicting record invasions this fall due to an early spring and record-breaking summer heat.  However, homeowners can now protect themselves against foul home invasions with a new line of Stink Bug Killers from TERRO®, a leader in DIY ant and pest control products.

TERRO® Ready-to-Use Stink Bug Killer Spray and TERRO® Stink Bug Killer Aerosol Spray quickly kill insects on contact.  For long-term control, the Ready-to-Use spray is formulated to continue killing up to four months.  The non-staining, odorless stink bug killers are also effective against boxelder bugs, Asian lady bugs, carpenter ants and crickets.  Both products may be used indoors and outdoors.

“Right now, with cool weather settling in, stink bugs are searching for a warm place indoors to hibernate for the winter,” says Stew Clark, Director of Research at TERRO. “Though not harmful to homeowners, remember that stink bugs are aptly named - it refers to the scent glands located on the underbelly of the insects. When frightened or smashed, the bugs release a terrible smell – which is reason enough to take steps to protect your home from a stink bug invasion.”  

Clark recommends treating cracks and crevices in and around homes using the directional stream on the two-way spray nozzle included on the TERRO® Stink Bug Killer Aerosol Spray can.  Apply to areas where stink bugs crawl and hide, especially around sinks and storage areas; behind baseboards; around doors and windows; behind and under refrigerators, cabinets, and stoves. 

“Before an indoor insect invasion gets out of control, it’s also a good idea to set up an outdoor barrier with TERRO Ready-to-Use Stink Bug Killer Spray,” advises Clark. “This product not only kills on contact but it provides a long-lasting residual control up to four months.”

The 411 by Maria:
I don't know about you but we have such a stink bug problem from September to the beginning of next month in my area. Everyone in my town writes about their Stink Bugs on Facebook so I know I am not alone.  

These bugs are just don't right nasty looking. They look like little helmets walking around and we are removing at least one a day for weeks. We tend not to smash them because they do give off an odor so we usually trap and release but that means they will come back. We are in love with the new TERRO® Stink Bug Killer sprays especially the one with the wand where I can get into the crevices around my door frame. 

So we used the spray once and are seeing a significant decrease in the amount of Stinks getting in and even on my deck. LOVE It! I really do not like bugs!
