Every year for the past 10-15 years, around this time, the stink bugs congregate on windows and doors, trying to get into my house. So far this year, I have only seen one. Where are they?
Stink bugs emerge in the spring to feed and reproduce. Late July and August are the most common times to see damage to plants. And in the fall, as the weather turns colder, the bugs start invading homes in search of a warm place to spend the winter. Stink bugs typically gather on warm, west-facing walls and enter buildings via cracks and crevices.
