    good luck!!! there is no known enemy to them!! we used to just either gather with a piece of tissue and flush, or swat with flyswatter and dump out the door. Unfortunately they are insidious and hide in walls, etc. They even get in your clothes in the dresser drawers; boxes, bedding, everything.

    we tried everything...spray, trapping, pest control, etc. NOTHING! so, even tho we didnt like them, we learned to live with them...they dont bite/sting/etc., but when threatened they will smell. when warm weather comes they will head towards the warmth, trying to get out to feed and breed (they dont breed indoors). they love to eat pine trees and other stuff. We vacuumed them up and then either burned the bag (DO NOT USE a non-bag vacuum unless you wash it out), or threw in garbage (make sure its tightly sealed). there are stink bug catchers out there, but they didnt work. luckily when we moved, all the packed boxes we found some in, we gathered them up and destroyed them...didnt want to turn them loose elsewhere .....

      Thank you for your suggestions. When I came home fom work I found 58 stink bugs in my bedroom -- YUCK. Makes me feel so dirty. Right now I collect them and flush them. They are just all over it's impossible to catch them all.

    When I read up on them, one suggestion was to clean the surface where they gather outside, they leave a scent to come back to. Use any type of spray that deters or kills them, but cleaning the walls and overhang and fascia surfaces are really important. That'show I got rid of my stink bug problem.
