Thank you for your comments on the stink bug. In Extension, we have no doubt of the damage they are causing for farmers. I will share you comment with Dan Lima
in the Belmont Extension office.

Since Belmont County is close to Pennsylvania you have had the stink bug longer than most of us.

I hope you are aware of the materials available:
