Well the predictions were wrong and the invasive pest from Asia, the stink bug, did not freeze to death during this past winter’s polar vortex. We bet you have mixed feelings about that! We understand just how frustrating stink bug work can be for a pest professional. You communicate time and again how important a timely outdoor spray is to control indoor stink bug populations and yet nobody seems to hear you. Homeowners don’t seem to pick up the phone until stink bugs are falling off of their ceilings and onto their dinner tables in the spring. Then they call you to treat the problem and you have to sell them a program that they probably won’t see the benefits of until next spring when they see less stink bugs inside of their home. It’s just not an easy sell and many pest professionals have felt that their hands were tied with treatment options to put to use inside of homes for stink bugs.
Now you can stop selling a treatment program that your home or business owners won’t see the benefits of until the following season. You can complement your current program with a couple of indoor products that will help you achieve immediate results. The Catchmaster® GLOstik™ combo can be used in the attics or top floors of your client’s structure, place them on the south and west sides, which is where stink bugs are known to enter. One of the most exciting features of the GLOstik™ is you can use it in areas where there is no outlet! The light attracts stink bugs to the trap and the glue ensures that they stay there for good.
You can also offer control for stink bugs that are already in the living areas of your client’s homes! Our SilenTrap™ Flying Insect Trap is small light and decorative enough to be used within a room where stink bugs are present. The light can be simply placed on a tabletop or even hung in the room if space allows. There is no annoying zap sounds or an unhygienic mess like that found with other traps on the market. The SilenTrap™ is perfect for indoor use in a residential or business setting.
Now you CAN offer indoor stink bug control for those active infestations inside of homes and businesses with these two innovative products. What makes them even better is your clients will love that they catch not only stink bugs but other flying insects as well!
