Stink bugs are annoying, but they do not bite, or get into food,


But one did get into my wine glass while sitting around campfire.....most disgusting flavor I've ever experienced.
Wife thought I was having a heart attack.

Their only natural enemy is a wasp found only in Asia. We live in the woods and have been dealing with them for the last five years or so. The best solution is to keep your house as tight as possible so that they can't get in. Once they are in, the Bugzooka is the best solution because you can catch them without touching or crushing. They seem to be immune to normal bug killers at least when used in approved quantities.

We don't have any in my area...yet.

For Chinese Lady Beatles I found a product called Tempo. You mix it with water and use a garden sprayer to spray it on the outside of you house, TT, or whatever. You go around the doors, windows, slides, or any other place they are likely to enter. It leaves a residue when it drys and as the bugs crawl though it the get it on themselves and they die rather quickly.

The product would be about as safe as anything for pets or people because we are not crawling through the cracks like bugs are. It may work on stinkbugs too.

Check it out on-line and see what the labels says.

They actually can bite, or pinch, whatever. I once took out a pair of socks and put them on. Shortly, I experienced an uncomfortable feeling on the top of my foot. Thought I had laced my shoes too tight, so adjusted. It happened again. I finally took my sock off and there was a live stink bug who had found a warm place to hide in my sock! There were actually two in there and I had a mark where he had been pinching me. Didn't break the skin, but it hurt a bit anyway.

I'm just across the river and they are fewer in number this year. I think that there are now some predators feeding on them.
