The best way to control them is to drop them into a pail of soapy water rather than apply an insecticide. Insecticidal soap or neem oil can be effective when the product comes in contact with the insect but getting the material on the pest can be difficult. Try controlling the egg mass or the young nymphs.http://extension.umd.edu/growit/insects/stink-bugs
