When coming in contact with a stink bug, people should always wear gloves because stink bug chemical secretion can irritate skin or eyes.

How to get rid of stink bugs:

  • For home invasion issues, ensure all windows, doors, ducts and attic overhangs are sealed to prevent entry
  • Pyrethroid pesticides labeled for structural use may aid in outdoor control
  • Bugs can be vacuumed into a shop vac filled with soapy water and discarded
  • Sweep, don’t squish: If stink bugs have found their way into your home, sweep them with a broom and dustpan.
  • Do not squish stink bugs — the glands between their legs omit an odor when smashed.
