Look for emerging stink bugs and lady beetles on the warmer sides of buildings as springtime approaches. As temperatures climb, overwintering pests will usually emerge on the southern- and western-facing sides of structures first.

Small, portable insect light traps (ILTs) placed in rooms facing these directions, and glue boards placed in window wells, are a good option to control these pests once they have made their way in. Consider these customers good candidates for future exclusion services, as well as a fall-time treatment to the structure with a properly labeled residual spray.
