5.  Try Lysol

Believe it or not, some people claim that pesticides don’t work on these little stinkers (not that you would want to use them anyway), but for some reason, Lysol seems to stop them dead in their tracks. If you have some bugs and a can of Lysol, you can try killing them and freshen the house at the same time.


6.  Watch Window Air Conditioning Units

These little buggers can enter the house easily through window air conditioner units so either seal them up or remove them entirely to keep those bugs from making your house their home.


7.  The Old Towel Trick

One old fashioned method of removing these bugs is to hang an old damp towel inside or outside (depending on where they are) overnight. In the morning, it will be covered in stink bugs. Now you can vacuum them up or knock them into a bowl of soapy water so they drown.


8. Landscaping

Move your fruit trees and vegetable gardens away from the house, or at least away from the doors, so the stink bugs stay farther away from your house.
