Growing up, we'd get them in the house once in awhile. Yes, talk about a nuisance. I'd just kill them and deal with the stink. Ick.

We vacuumed them up and have never smelled them. I think it's the Dyson swirly thing. They don't know what hit them. What a commercial that would make!

Our central vacuum also works pretty good. It gives them a longer ride for their money! I also donít have to empty it until I have twenty galleons of the little critters - Dyson canít hold itís bugs like that! Fortunately we have not had numbers like that for many years.

My favorite method is still a little charcoal lighter fluid in the bottom of an old plastic cup (like a sour cream or cottage cheese container). I just put the cup under the bugs and use a paint brush to give them a nudge off the screen or window. They fall down into the cup and canít swim in the thin petroleum product. I can then start my charcoal and enjoy the special stink bug flavoring on my steaks! One of these days they will probably have stink bugs as the secret ingredient on Chopped Chef!

You found me out. No, I just never got much satisfaction out of vacuuming, and I never had a vacuum cleaner that cost so much. I guess it's that I can see the dust and kitty litter trapped in that little container and the easily detachable handle, so I can reach high places. I'm in no way affiliated, neither do I know anyone who is, I am just so pleased with this machine. Yes. We will give it up for a whole house vacuum shortly, also.

I have a whole house vacuum and it sucks... well, unfortunately not literally, just figuratively. and it's forever getting clogged.

I hate it. and they ain't cheap either. So, before you invest your money, check them out thoroughly.





I have my little dirt devil and he would suck up those nasty little stink bugs if I let him any ol' time.

*I had to add the stink bug sentence otherwise I'd be really off topic.




edited to add.. Nevermind.. forget what I said up there.
Can I have your Dyson?
