Shoshana on May 29, 2017Make a border of Diatomaceous Earth around your patio. It is a natural pesticide.Helpful Reply
Cheryl on May 29, 2017'm not sure if you're saying they are on the screens - or getting into the screened patio. If they are getting inside, spray the threshold with insecticide - any another places with an opening. Just don't put dia. earth anywhere you'll walk or you'll track it inside . If they are on your screens, I don't know. Can't see stinkbugs staying for long on something they can't eat. If you squish them, wear gloves!Please tell us if any suggestions you get work! Since stink bugs can fly (and usually do), they probably won't walk through the diatomaceous earth. And I'm really thinking that a dryer sheet won't repel either - but who knows? As an organic gardener, I never found anything that would repel or kill them except real pesticides or a "trap crop" of soybeans they liked better than the tomatoes. If the dryer sheets work, I'll hang some in my plants! Thank you. And I'm so sorry you're having this problem - what a pain!Helpful Reply
Cheryl on May 29, 2017Meant to include - Shoshana is right - if they are crawling into your porch, the diatomaceous earth WILL get them. And it's not the poison that a normal insecticide is, so safer if not tracked around. But you do have to replenish it if it gets wet.Helpful Reply
