Since our camper gets below freezing, I just throw out the carcasses in the spring.

Don't know when or where we got them, but we've been battling them for the last 2 years, just a few in the camper and the screened in back porch on our house. We've decided to try the suggestion Ford Idaho posted of getting a pan and put some water and dish soap and a light and see how it works as soon as we see one in either the camper or on the porch. Sure hope it works.

Depending on how you killed them, that may have been your biggest mistake. Don't ever crush a stink bug. If you crush it, they leave their scent all over and it just attracts more stink bugs. Even if you find dead ones, don't crush them. Seems counter intuitive.

Never have crushed them, catch them and put in a plastic bag and make a present of them to the local trash disposal company.

We had them in our line for the water heater. We had flames shooting out. Burned them all up. Then they got in our check valve for black flush tank and caused a flood. They are disgusting. So far this year they aren't that bad. Maybe Trump will send them all back to China where they belong. Another good reason to keep jobs in the USA

If you upset or step on one the odor is something you will not soon forget............... They are usually brown & ugly

From Wikipedia, the stink bug, is an insect in the family Pentatomidae that is native to China, Japan and Taiwan.[2] It was accidentally introduced into the United States, with the first specimen being collected in September 1998.[3] The brown marmorated stink bug is considered to be an agricultural pest,[4] and by 2010–11 had become a season-long pest in U.S. orchards.[5]

Do a google search not like the love bugs..... They will eventually come your way........

They were not in this area a few years ago now a super pest.... even Virginia Tech has been studying on how to get rid of them.

We are getting them here in South Jersey now. They're on the windows trying to get in for the winter. If there's a crack they will find it.
