Thank god I've not seen any in the house yet.Look for small gaps where they enter the house and seal those up.
Lol "Swarming" was a bit of an exaggeration - I panicked when I saw them.How many are you seeing? I accidentally bring them in on wood all the time.
I've drowned a few in soapy water.Have you killed any so far? really strange wasp spray don't kill them.
I've done that a few times, I have pecan and black walnut trees and they get in them. i usually cut them off with a pole saw and pile em up to burn.I've drowned a few in soapy water.
Not as many this afternoon as yesterday... but one did jump on my head as I opened the back door. I picked him up with a piece of paper and dunked him in the "bath."
Even though I read squishing them so they let go their stink will warn others of danger, and make them stay away, I'd rather go the alternative route - stink-free..
Nope, the spray didn't phase them in the least.
This is making me remember what the guys did with bag worms at the nursery I used to work for.
They hand picked them off the arbs, put them in sacks, then burned them all in a big pile in the parking lot. Sounded like corn popping.
LOL, I killed one today. it was on the hood of my truck. I thumped it off the hood with my finger. I don't think it survived.So, fyi, on the stink bugs...
Drowning them in soapy water is the way to go.
Good hunting today - got about eight of them - five were on the inside door frame between the storm door and the back door! That's too close!
I have a large plastic cup (2 pound ricotta container) filled about 1/3 with water and dish soap.
I used scissors to flick the stubborn ones, and they worked great for getting ahold of them, too.
The others just fell into the cup when I scooted it underneath them.
Not instant death, but they definitely can't get out and eventually drown.
I had nightmares last night about bugs.
