There are several types of stink bugs in the US, but the latest to arrive is the Brown Marmorated Stink Bug. Stink bugs often find their way into homes through small cracks and openings on the house. Preventing their entry is the first step in eliminating their presence and a vacuum cleaner is often the best way to remove them from the home. Information on stink bugs with control tips can be found at: There are links there to more information as well. The MSU Extension article "Managing Brown Marmorated Stink Bugs in the Home" by Howard Russell would also be helpful:
