You should take immediate action if you see stink bugs in your home. To trap these pests, you can make stink bugs traps. These traps should be placed in dark areas or where they are most likely to be found. You want to catch as many bugs as possible so you should not disturb the traps for more than 24 hours. Once the bugs are in, make sure they cannot escape. This is vital as an ineffective bug trap will not work.
These traps can be removed within 24 to 48 hours. Clean out the traps and put them in a container with soap water or alcohol. This is to kill all bugs. Once they are all gone, remove them and place them in a plastic bag. Seal the bag and then dispose of the bag like normal garbage bags.
Stink bugs will seek out places to hibernate and hide before winter sets in. They will seek out homes that they can get into and hide in to survive the winter.
You can prevent them from getting into your home by walking around it in late autumn. Stink bugs are tiny and can grow up to three-quarters of an inch. They can also enter your home through small gaps. After identifying any gaps in your home, use a high-quality caulk to seal them. Repair any damaged screens or holes in your windows or doors immediately. You should seal or remove your window air conditioner as bugs love to hide in it.
Stink bugs can be controlled by removing all fruit and vegetables that attract them. These insects will eat fruits and vegetables, and then stick to them to lay eggs.
These insects can be difficult to find because of their natural colors, which allow them to blend in with the environment. Simply shake the plant to check for these insects.

Natural predators can also be used to exterminate these pests outside your home. The stink bugs are not native to the United States of America, and do not have any natural predators. These bugs currently have the following predators:
These are all methods for controlling stink bugs in and around your home. Now you must take steps to stop them from getting inside your house. It’s better to prevent stink bugs from getting into your home than to attack them once they have already entered. Prevention is better than cure.
