Don’t Let the Kudzu Bugs In!

Monday, 14. November 2011 11:00

So many names and but so little information! Globular stink bugs, brown lady bugs, lablab bugs, and most commonly known as kudzu bugs, these insects have take over the southeast region of the United States. Because they are fairly new and just heavily concentrated in just one area of the United States, it seems that there is not much information or common knowledge about this bug. People find them clinging to their clothes, crawling inside their cars and houses, on the outside of buildings and vehicles and etc. Now that they are more prominent and obviously becoming much more of a nuisance than they originally were, many people are seeking methods to get rid of them in the most effective way possible. The most important thing about Kudzu Bug control, though, will be to practice such pest control methods like exclusion by mechanical control and prevention by chemical control. KEEP READING

Kudzu Bug: The Brown Lady Bug

Recently, we’ve been noticing that there has been a huge outbreak or swarming of relatives to the common stink bug. These bugs don’t look similar to the common Brown Marmorated Stink Bug that many homeowners find, but just like their relatives, they do give off an odor and they also have tendencies of swarming in mass numbers. Concentrated in the southeast region, Kudzu Bugs or commonly known as Brown Lady Bugs, have begun to look for a place to find shelter for the winter which means it is time to protect your homes!

Stink Bugs 2011

Friday, 2. September 2011 17:52

Stink bugs, also known as shield bugs, have been a nuisance for several years now. Recently, however, they have become more significant pests in the agricultural industry and massive infestations have taken over the mid-Atlantic region in the United States. Although they continue to make their ways into houses, businesses, schools, and more, they are also taking over orchards, gardens, and  agricultural fields. They are able to attack over 300 fruits and vegetables and without a natural predator to naturally control their populations, there is a stronger urgency to make more conscious efforts in controlling stink bugs.

Significance of Stink Bugs

Stink bugs are not native to the United States. It is said that they were brought from Asia by freight. Since there are no known natural predators of stink bugs in the United States, they have been left alone to continue to breed and reproduce at outrageous rates.

Answer : FenvaStar EcoCap is one is one of the most popular products we carry for the control of stink bugs. FenvaStar EcoCap carries a delay kill effect and releases its chemicals slowly from its capsulated form for a long term treatment. It will kill the nymphs, eggs, and adults. I would recommend that you spray it thoroughly along your window and door frames and where ever else you may be seeing them. Once the pesticide is dried it is safe to be around small children and pets. It is also recommended that you spray in areas with ventilation.
