RESCUE! Wendy Bounds from WSJ's Lunch Break


ROAD TRIP!  GMG took Sterling Intl.'s Stephanie Cates to meet up with Wendy Bounds of the WSJ on her new on-line program "Lunch Break Live".  Cates explained to Wendy the stinky truth about the much dreaded stink bugs.  She also told her that it's getting close to the time of year these invasive little creatures are moving in to your home or office to get warm and stay for the winter.

If you haven't seen any yet, don't worry they haven't overlooked your home, they are coming!!!  It's the first day of fall and these guys got the memo... it's moving day!

Experts say 9 in 10 households in the "red zone" area are going to have these winter visitors.  At the local hardware store this morning, I found only one RESCUE! trap left on the shelf.  The owner told me that they had been cleared out yesterday because the bugs are starting to cover doors and windows.  Yuck!

When the temps drop and the sun shines less it is time to bring your RESCUE! Stink Bug trap indoors and add the special indoor light attachment.  The light is sold separately and snaps on with ease and well, it looks like something out of a sci-fi film at night.  My daughter came in last night and yelled "Cool!" but then realized it wasn't a lava lamp! Ha!  

With the option of a battery or AC adaptor you can place the light anywhere.  For optimal results, the trap should be placed in a dark area of your home like your attic or basement.

Have you seen any inside yet?  If so, let us know.  We'd love to know where you are from and what your experience has been with these armor wearing pests!

I've been reading an awful lot about this recently - and for good reason. I work at an advertising agency that just launched a stink bug infographic for one of our clients - Western Pest Services. Here is a link to check it out: http://www.westernpest.com/stinkbug-infographic.php. Feel free to share with your readers.

I've been having issues with bugs lately. I need a commercial pest control company to come out and spray for me. It's getting to be unbearable.
