Do you have a stink bug problem in your home?
Brown marmorated stink bugs originally came from Asia and were first spotted in Pennsylvania in the 1990s. Since then, they’ve spread to 33 U.S. states.
If you’ve never encountered one, here are a few quick facts:
- They do not bite or sting.
- They will ruin your plants. Researchers say they’re the most menacing agricultaral pests in 40 years.
- They aren’t named “stink bugs” for nothing. They emit a rather unpleasant odor. If you have an infestation in your home, the smell can last for months.
We came across a video on YouTube showing how to make a stink bug trap using electrical tape, a Pepsi 2-liter bottle, masking tape, a razor, a black permanent marker, and our LED battery operated puck light.
The video says they are available at Home Depot, but it’s the exact same product we sell online.
