BROWN MARMORATED STINK BUG

KNOTT COUNTY, Ky. (WYMT) The fall season is in full swing and with it comes some unwanted pests!

Brown marmorated stink bugs came into Kentucky back in 2011 and every fall, we seem to see a rise in these pests.

Agriculture and Natural Resource Agent for Knott County Extension Office Chad Conway says the bugs are also a nuisance for crops too.

“They’re attracted to bright colors. They come in cracks, crevices and things this time of year into your homes,” Conway added.

For tips on how to manage sting bugs at your home, just call your local extension office.
