Stink Bug Control Details
Western's residential inspectors conduct a thorough inspection of both the interior and exterior of your home, looking for any cracks or gaps where Stink Bugs could enter.

Western's service technicians apply pest control materials around windows, doors, walls and the chimney, where Stink Bugs congregate.
Our service technicians will clean up bugs that get into the house, removing live and dead bugs.
Third Visit (Two-Three Weeks After The Second Visit)
Our service technicians will re-apply pest control materials to the exterior door frames and window frames, pipe perforations and other potential sites including tree trunks. If bugs are found in clusters, your technician will remove them with a portable vacuum or other mechanical methods before re-application of pest control materials.
