Killed 13 of the creepy things today. Our third year in the house and never had a problem before. I now feel ya'lls pain. Hopefully it'll be short-lived.

I was just recently thinking: haven't seen any stink bugs - guess your area got them? 13 probably isn't too bad from what I read that some folks that had hundreds.... never had that problem. Don't kill them, it supposedly attracts more.

They're having a convention at my house again this year. All I have to say is stinkbugs and my cats start trying to get to them.

13? Ha. I was out at a federal training agency in Front Royal today. One guy opened a Suburban that's been sitting for a few months. At least 1000 of those little turds in there. He was vacuuming and the stench covered a huge area. Of course they've been bad in Front Royal for a few years now.

Get a 32oz bottle of 91% Alcohol, insert a sprayer & be sure to spray them on their belly side, not their shell, it kills them dead & all you smell is alcohol.

Something must be wrong with my nose because I've killed a bunch of stink bugs and I can't smell anything!
I even got up close and took a whiff, but nothin'....

So, do you ask the hundreds of them to flip over to expose their bellies for you?
