Ways to deal with stink bugs

My favorite way of getting them on a one-by-one basis is to use duct tape, put the duck tape on top of one, and fold it over sealing them in.. then crush them. They die and no stink

Many people use vacuums…

other ways I’ve found across the internet:

Gaharie @ reddit claims this works (link to comment)

Take an open container of water, a large bowl or something, and set it out; it works best if it’s somewhere near a light. Then add a squirt of Dawn or other dishwashing detergent to the water. The Dawn disrupts the surface tension, the bug attempts to land, and drowns. Empty bowl, repeat.

b4freedom @ reddit suggests a rather funny method (link to comment)

Take a CFL light and put it into a cardboard box covered in aluminum foil. Cut slits into the box so that the light comes out of the slits (not too many slits). Place the box far away from your house and turn it on at night. In the morning, open the box, and crush the bugs inside so that the stink gets out. Close the box and repeat the next night. After a few nights you’ll have a giant box full of stink bugs. Now, carefully dump the entire box (of living stink bugs) into a white plastic kitchen garbage bag. Tie it. Drive to your ex’s house. Open the car, open the bag, push the bag under the front seat. …
