This is a tough one. Cars, by design, have tons of little panels and cracks, a favorite place for brown marmorated stink bugs to hide.

Stink Bugs will get in car doors, vents, motors, paneling and insulation.


Jump to the 2-minute point of this video to see hundreds in the door seal:

I'd die!!!!!!

Last year, late spring, I ended up getting gas and being surprised by the pump shutting off after a few gallon. It looked like it was overfilling.


Turned out the vent tube from the tank to the filler was plugged by stinkbugs!

I had a few stinkbugs plugging up the vent return line coming back from the gas tank to the filler.


Thinking I was almost empty, it started overflowing after two gallons or so.

I keep a small jar half full of rubbing alcohol in the car and use it to trap stink bugs in.  I don't want to squish them and endure the smell so this is a good alternative.


OMG, I thought I had a lot of them but I'm talking about one or two at a time, nothing like those in that video above.


I drive a black SUV and have had HORRIBLE CRAZY amounts of Stink Bugs in the crevices and cracks of my car door.  Are SB's attracted to one specific color over another?  I'm a petrified of these things and can see them in my sleep some nights.  I had to take my car to get detailed last night after work b/c I couldn't take it any more.  Any and all tips on keeping them out of my car cracks would be GREATLY appreciated

I was dealing with a similar problem of stinkbugs in my car and I used pinnacle pest exterminator to get rid of them. To be honesty this measure were great, to completely eradicate stinkbugs from my car and I will suggest you the same.

That is just gross! I have them around my house and in it but nothing like this,yuck!  I found a very large adult on an exterior screen and later see a ring of eggs where it had been. What can I use to kill them in the garden?  I saw this last year too and I really battled them heavier but don't know if even a exterminator can take care of them.  Seems like they are horrible in the FR north eastern states.  I just use the pick and squish method but I think they are a bigger problem in my garden.  Do they drown like a slug?  I bought a hot shot for flying insects that is harmless to animals and strong (lemongrass and citron) but I'm not sure it would be practical.  I just want them gone like everyone else.

they got in my vents two years ago and i still can't get the damn smell out of my car ... 

they showed up en mass yesterday here in asheville, nc ...
