Vancouver Stink Bug Control
Stop the Stench, Call Portland's best!
The term “stink bug” doesn’t actually refer to just one type of bug, but rather an entire class of small beetles that secret an extremely pungent, foul odor as a defense mechanism against potential predators. When a potential predator approaches, the bug excretes a pungent chemical that gives the impression that the bug is already dead. Initially, these bugs first made their way to the United States in the cargo holds of ships from China, Japan, Korea, and other areas of Asia. Today, they have multiplied to the point where they are a significant nuisance for various types of crops and ornate gardens, as they eat a number of different types of plants.

The Unfortunately Common Problem of Stink Bugs
Stink bugs are unfortunately common intruders in homes all across the Pacific Northwest. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes, though most of these bugs are pretty small. In fact, the majority are usually around the size of a dime. That means they’re capable of sneaking in through the tiniest cracks, including under doors, around windows, and even in small separations in your walls or foundation. While they’re not dangerous to humans in that they don’t bite and aren’t venomous, they can and do use their foul-smelling defense mechanism against dogs, cats, humans, and anything else they may feel threatened by. And this quickly makes their presence known.
We can eliminate all common types of Pacific Northwest Stink Bugs, including:
- Western Redshouldered Stink Bugs
- Clorochroa Stink Bugs
- Brown Marmorated Stink Bugs
Brown Marmorated stink bugs are the most common type of species you’ll find around our area. They’re generally around half of an inch in length when fully-grown, and can typically be found in gardens, specifically vegetable and fruit gardens. These bugs specifically enjoy flavorful fruits and vegetables, including apples, tomatoes, and citruses. These bugs typically make their nests on the undersides of leaves, as they offer great protection from sunlight and disguise them from potential predators.
Around the home, these bugs commonly enter homes in search of shelter, food, or just by pure accident. This typically happens in the fall, as cooling temperatures increase their desire for warmth. Once there, they are often difficult to get rid of, and usually do not hesitate to unleash their stench when they encounter a human or pet. Natura’s service technicians use the right techniques and products to keep stink bugs away from your home, all the while keeping your home free from the foul stench these bugs can unleash.
