We have them all over the house! Inside and out due to the fact that I like to have the windows open in the early fall when the temps are cool at night.

DH has been walking around in the early evenings with a glass full of soapy water and a pencil. He has collected as many as 43 in one evening and as few as 8 in an evening.

Shew, they are just nasty. I was almost asleep the other evening and felt something hit my arm. Raised up and looked for whatever it was, couldn't find it. I then felt something move, turned on the light and it was two stink bugs on my arm that were locked in a compromising position?? They quickly hit the "stinkbug glass".

I keep a small rechargeable vacuum handy as it is the easiest way to clean them up. Just add a drop of scented oil ( your preference) to keep the exhausted air from smelling like stink bugs.

We do have those stink bugs in SE Texas. I see a few from time to time but not
any large swarms of then. I have only seen a few and mostly one at a time.

I used a spray poison that I had bought to kill deer ticks to keep off dog. Sprayed everything in yard including trees and inside of fifth wheel never have had another problem. Picked my bugs up in Cherry Hill Rv park in Maryland

I have used 6 so far. Killed at least a hundred the first time, but they continue to pop up.

Stink bugs are bad this year all over, Just had the exterminator here last week, said they have had nothing but complaints about them this year. They sprayed around the outside of the house and they are still around. AS soon as it gets cooler they will be gone, samething every year just not a local thing, some places are worst then others.
