What All Washington DC Property Owners Should Know About Stink Bugs

The first thing that comes to mind about stink bugs is their very unpleasant odor. This horrid smell comes from the defensive spray that they produce to protect themselves from predators. When they feel threatened, they emit a stinky chemical from the glands in their abdomen and release it as a spray that can reach several inches.

Stink bugs mostly invade during the fall, as they search for a place to overwinter during the cold season. They enter structures in large numbers, and once they infest, they can be very hard to control. Although they don’t pose any health risks, the smell is definitely something you want to avoid.

When it comes to stink bugs, remember never to squish them. If you crush them, they release their putrid odor, and all of that stinky chemical spray is released. Needless to say, don’t step on them either. If you want dependable stink bug protection throughout the year, contact us today. We’re highly skilled in exterminating and preventing these smelly intruders, and we’re ready to guard your property against the stink.

Washington DC

Washington DC, formally known as the District of Columbia, more commonly known as DC, is the official capital of the United States of America. It is located on east side of the Potomac River, bordering Maryland and Virginia. The United States Congress held its first session there in 1800. The city was named after George Washington,  a Founding Father and the first president of the United States. The federal district was named after Columbia, a female personification of our nation. As the seat of the US federal government and several international organizations, DC is an important world political capital. It is one of the most visited cities in the US, with over 24 million visitors in 2019.

The District of Columbia is not a part of any U.S. state. The signing of the Residence Act on July 16, 1790, approved the creation of a capital district located along the Potomac River near the country's Atlantic Coast. The City of Washington was founded in 1791 to serve as the national capital. In 1801, the land, formerly part of Maryland and Virginia (at the time including the settlements of Georgetown and Alexandria), officially became recognized as the federal district. In 1846, Congress returned to Virginia the portion of Washington DC that had been originally ceded by Virginia, including the cities of Alexandria and Arlington; in 1871, it created a single municipal government for the remaining portion of the district.

DC is divided into quadrants (NW, NE, SE, and SW), centered on the United States Capitol (aka the Capitol Building or Capitol Hill), with 8 wards, 37 Advisory Neighborhood Commissions, and 127 named neighborhoods. It is the 20th-most populous city in the US. Commuters from the surrounding suburbs in Maryland and Northern Virginia raise the city's daytime population to more than one million during the workweek. Washington DC's metropolitan area is the country's sixth-largest metropolitan area, and includes portions of Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia.
