ELKTON, MD. — APM Services, Elkton, Md., has hired 20 people in the last two months as part of its effort to keep pests — including stink bugs, out of people's homes — the Cecil Whig newspaper reports.

The company's new wildlife division, which started up last year to meet a growing demand for services to eradicate squirrels, snakes, raccoons, bats and other critters that get inside homes, is adding a new service they call "fortress."

APM Services has been owned by the Kreer family since 1964.
