Stink Bug Removal
These tiny little insects, no bigger than a ladybug, are named such because the foul odor they are associated with. Their bodies are protected by a hard, outer shell shaped like a shield (they are also known as "shield bugs" because of this), making them difficult to crush.
They often hitch a ride on the shoes and pant legs of unsuspecting walkers, and take up shelter in your home to escape the harsh outdoors. They're pretty scary-looking to someone who isn't familiar with them, but the good news is that they are mostly harmless apart from the smell.
Crushing or mishandling them, especially by vacuuming them up, may also cause them to release these fluids. Of course, the best way to deal with a stink bug infestation is with the help of a professional pest control company.
