Stink Bug Rehoming

Asked November 21, 2019, 1:58 PM EST

Where should I put a stink bug if I want to rehome it instead of killing it? It will die a horrible death if I suck it up with a vacuum cleaner. Will it survive outside on a tree if it is used to living in my home?

Thank you for your question. Here is an article which has a bit of information about stink bugs and their control:

If they are the ones described in the following UGA Extension article, they are not rare, destructive nor valuable, so you can just put it outside and let it find a similar place on your property:

Good luck!
