Stink bugs

Asked September 20, 2016, 4:12 PM EDT

My house has erupted in a stink bug infestation in the last 2 days. What do I do, other than vacuum them up with a bug vacuum?

You apparently are located in an agricultural area adjacent to a wooded lot. The stink bugs are trying to seek winter protection before the cold weather. Look for any cracks around windows and door frames where they may be entering your house and seal off these areas with caulking or weather stripping. Continue with the vacuuming, a shop vac may be your best bet We do not recommend any insecticides for indoor usage.
