We have to have doors open sometimes at work and the stinkbugs are coming in like crazy. Yesterday I checked websites with natural repellent remedies, I tried 3 of them today and maybe it helped a little but not much. The first was a garlic powder/water spray and the other two were using different essential oils. I coated the doorway with each mix and it did not keep them from coming in. I could smell the garlic all day. If anyone knows of any spray that would work for a few hours, PLEASE let me know. I don't care what kind of chemicals are in it, I will buy it. I made a mix last year that had dishwashing soap and lemon in it, it did kill them, but I'd rather keep them from coming in.

With the door open there isn't much you can do about them coming in. I have, however, used Raid's Bug Barrier to a fair amount of success, and yes it even works on the stinkbugs.

If you have time on your hands a half cup of water with dish detergent and paint brush works pretty good. Simply hold the cup under the stink bug and with the paint brush; brush it into the cup. They cannot swim with the dish detergent in the cup and they cannot climb out. You can also use a light oil, like kerosene - then you can start your bonfire!
