How do I get rid of stink bugs?

If you find stink bugs in your house or garden, the best way to eliminate them is by physically removing them. Vacuuming is one reliable method for removing the bugs from both indoor and outdoor areas.

Be warned: They’re called stink bugs for a reason! The bugs release the skunk-smelling substance when crushed, which also happens if you vacuum them.

Another natural way to remove stink bugs is by using a soapy trap. Here’s how:

  • Fill a metal pan with soapy water.
  • Place it under a light source.
  • Find the areas with the highest concentration of bugs and watch them flock to the trap.
