They are everywhere. Not so bad at my house but extreme at my mom's. However, my yard has had a slug infestation lately. Ever step on one of those b!tches barefoot? Ick!

You can make a darn effective trap with a pizza box and a few wood straps. You can Google pizza box stink bug trap and build one, it works, you'll be surprised at how many you catch. After catching them shake them out in to a bucket of soapy water.

Every time I open the door they fly in. Never seen it like this before.

I caught one and threw it out the door and it flew back in before I got the door shut.

If you think we've got it bad with stinkbugs, you should go down to southern Alabama. They have a plague of "lovebugs" that is horrible. I stopped at a convenience store and the air was black with them. They coat your car and eat the paint. They were piled up at the door to the store. They light all over you as soon as you step outside. I had to wipe them off the car door and window before I opened it to get in so they wouldn't flood in with me. It was disgusting. It was lovebug apocalypse.

due to lack of a strong winter last season there is an over run of them and many other annoying critters. the stink bug is looking for warmth before winter hits which is why they are attacking homes, dirty or clean they dont discriminate.

I'm a pro and even I don't have a solution, suggestions and things I've tried that worked but not to perfection. Foggers are expensive and supposed to be for indoors. I have access to them, I went out in back yard last night about 9pm and set it off . No wind. It went all across the back of the house , which is where they come in at my house, and haven't had one today....absolutely no doubt that it worked. I usually have 30 in a day. Today.....zero ... But for how long? I can't put a fogger out every night.

Now also, our company treats for Mosquitos. It helps with Mosquitos but not by much but people are reporting that it helps with stink bugs...

Last pice of free advice.... SMOKE..... They don't like it...... If you can't get fogger a, take a rolled up newspaper and go around the house....good luck

My dad went around the house killing them with a rolled up paper last week and killed literally near a hundred, but we still have loads flying outside! It's crazy...

I kill a butt load everyday, but they just keep coming. The smell is killing me. It reminds me of my last girlfriend.
