Our living room is invated by stink bugs. I have a clean house but I can't get rid of these bugs. Any ideas?

If you find a good one, please let me know.  Luckily they don't get inside to much, but when they do it's by way of the kitchen door or the dining room slider door and we catch them pretty quick and immediately put those suckers in the toilet!!  We put those glue boards out by the door & it caught a lot; they like warm places.

do you have a pic of the bugs ? what I grew up calling stink bugs are different from what folks here in MA call stink bugs. and I have killed their stink bugs many times and never had an odor...

  You definitely don't want to squish/kill these little suckers, they stink something horrible!!

yeah. thats what they call stink bugs here too. i must not be able to smell them cause I kill them frequently by accident or because they are on my walls

Knock them into a Snapple bottle (or jam jar, or something similar) and take them outside. They like to come inside when the weather gets cold. BTW, my DD has found that usually when you pick them up, if you do it gently, they don't release any stink, so you can use your hands, too.
