I don't think we get stink bugs but we do get June bugs. They fly and buzz and love to dive bomb you as you walk outside. Then their nasty little spiky legs get stuck in your hair and they go nuts trying to get free. Gives me the shudders every time I think about them! YUCK!

I live in Tennessee, and we have those here. But I've never had one in the house. (yet)

We've had them. I just pick them up and flick them outside.

emoticon I live in Southwest PA too. They get in my house, mostly in the sun porch. I bought a Shark sweeper last fall. It has no bag, just a canister you dump out after you sweep. I suck them up with a hose extension on my sweeper then run them outside to the woods and dump the container! They sell a spray for them at Home Depot too, haven't tried it yet, but is supposed to kill them off. How ever did that many bugs get here from Asia?

Spray with lemon essential oil mixed with water - they hate it!

I live in Maryland and I haven't had any yet.

There was this guy on You Tube and he made a trap with one of those push lights and a two liter soda bottle

This video was from many years ago. He may now have them available for sale. I think that was his goal

Meh... I hated wasting the water when I was flushing them.

Now I use wide duct tape or masking tape to snare them. Then I just fold the tape over it and toss in the trash.

Toilet. But I haven't seen any yet this year. Fingers crossed that the winter killed them all.

Oh, I just flicked them onto the floor and crushed them with a large box.

I heard flicking them into a bowl with soap and water helps, then flush it down the potty.
