Stink Bugs

Ok, so the outside of my mom's house is swarmed with Stink Bugs. We researched the internet and they said that they are attracted to vegatables or a garden. My mom doesn't have this, but there is a huge one right across the street. We searched at walmart for some kind of spray to help get rid of them because now they have done started getting in her house. The only thing we have found has to be ordered offline. Does anybody know of anything that will keep these stinky bugs away??

    If neither of those help, go to & type in the question 'how do i get rid of stinkbugs' with or without the quote marks. Hope that helps.

  • Ortho Home Defense Max.......we just got it for our problem with them. It takes about 30 minutes for it to kill them. She'll have to keep spraying them as they come back though. We also don't have a garden but we live in a wooded area. They are also really attracted to warm spots.......they were covering the side of our house that the sun shines on. If they get in her house the best thing to do is flush them, you can vaccum them up but then your vaccum cleaner will smell. Also Dawn dish soap and water mixed in a spray bottle helps but normally you would use this for on your garden.
