Question:


We have a log home in Western Pennsylvania built in 1980. It was a kit home and I believe it's made of pine. Since about 2007 our area of the US has been hit with stinkbugs. My neighbors in traditional homes get very few of the nasty bugs in the house, but from Oct-May we get several a day, mostly on our great room's 2-story, south-facing wall. We've caulked any openings we've found between logs so we're not sure where they are coming in. Should we caulk the entire wall, top to bottom?

Answer:

I would say caulk the entire house. DO NOT caulk the checks (cracks in the logs) unless they are running into a door or window jamb or a corner where you know they are letting wind, water or bugs in.
