Learn how to get rid of stink bugs and kill stink bugs.
I've read through the Blog and decided to add my 2 stink bug's worth.
My family has dealt with these disgusting bugs for 3-4 years now. During that time I've tried just about everything written in this blog regarding catching (and disposing) once inside your home. After all, any self respecting husband-father-grandfather who hears "STINKBUG-EWWWW" must come to the rescue and quickly.

Has anyone heard of these new types of Japanese beetles, they look a little like stink bugs. They are a little longer, thinner, darker in color and have much longer antennas. I think I saw something on the news about them early spring. They are dangerous to TREES.
I thought I noticed 1 or 2 in my yard awhile ago and didn't worry about it...But now have recently noticed 1 of my stronger oak trees is dyeing. The branches are losing their leaves and becoming brittle. The tree is 1/2 dead…Continue

I was unaware that they could bite or sting until it happened to me as I was sleeping. I rolled over onto it and it either bit or stung my on my lower jaw. I suddenly felt this pain like I was being stung by a bee and then I smelled the odor and that is when I knew what had hurt me. My jaw swelled up and had pain on my jaw for a couple of days after. I still have a darken area in the shape of the shell of the bug on my jaw. This happened a couple months ago. I googled it and a lot of people…Continue

I hate to share my drink with bugs, it seams everyplace there is more and more bugs, flies and dirt. The only thing that really helps to keep my drinks free from all this mess is a drink protector called the bug not. It works on the boat, my back porch, in the wood shop and at my desk.I got mine at www.bugnot.us

I lived on the edge of a forest in New Jersey for 25 years. I had, close to 100 or 200 stink bugs a season come in - how I don't know.... However, I have used a product called mycrittercatcher - which is Catch & Release.... Not once did one release any stink - and of course it did not kill them... I also used it to evict ants, wasps, and multiple large spiders....

Stink bug control can be a daunting challenge. Here are 3 reasons why:
1) Stink bugs are not native to North American continent, but are indigenous to southeastern Asia. The mere fact that they have been transplanted to North America in just the past 2 decades, after thousands of years of relative localization, lends us to require a careful study, with great scrutiny as to their…Continue

What is the difference between a kamikaze warrior and a stink bug?
Both will swoop down out of the sky to impact an object on the ground, but the only difference is that whereas the kamikaze warrior is willing to die, we wish stink bugs would die.
What is with stink bugs and that annoying, eerie manner with which they have to make an…Continue

Don't waste your money on expensive bug sprays and repellents, when all you need is a little good old fashioned dish soap! Who would have thought that you could kill stink bugs with something as seemingly innocuous as dish washing detergent! But it is true. It wasn’t exactly discovered in a laboratory. It was not as if some entomologist was running clinical trials with stink bugs in some…Continue

If you have ever seen the movie "The Matrix", then (spoiler alert) you know that mankind's only hope to win the war against the machines was to scorch the sky and blot out the sun. Only problem with this is that not only was it hoped that this would kill the machines by depriving them of solar energy, but it had the side effect of also destroying the earth for the humans in the process. (Never mind the fact that this strategy didn't work too well for the humans... but then again we…Continue

Perhaps one of the best military combat strategies known to man is to learn how to exploit the enemy's secret weapon or their source of strength and figure out how to use it against themselves. Sometimes this is also known as fighting fire with fire.
In a similar vein, if you want to combat the scourge of stink bugs, then you will have to learn how to use their own capabilities against them.
Stink bugs produce what are known as aggregation pheromones. If we humans know…Continue
