I live near the epicenter of the stinkbug invasion. They were first imported on machinery from Asia to Allentown, PA back in 1998. They peaked here about ten years ago. I killed thousands of them.

The last several years there have been very few around, don't know why.

We are now dealing with spotted lantern flies. Another import from Asia that came into a stone quarry a few miles from my house in a shipment of rocks. Yes, apparently it is cost effective to import fancy stone from China.


Eh...wot?

I moved to Idaho from Pennsylvania in October of 2017. I had a blanket in storage and unwrapped the blanket the following April in 2018 and I couldn't believe it that a live stink bug emerged after staying in the blanket for 6 months. I guess they donít need to eat or drink anything for long periods of time. I did kill it. Donít know if they naturally exist in Idaho but this one wasnít going to live here.

we get some , wife's old work go them bad

permethrin around all the windows , doors and foundation

I would spray our house and go over and get her office made a noticeable difference

if you get one of the sprayers for the hose and do 30-50 feet out all around the house also makes a noticeable difference


America only has one issue, we have a Responsibility crisis and everything else stems from it.

I treated the sides of the house (especially the doors, windows, and soffit) with Bifenthrin and killed 100's. In my old farmhouse they were finding a way inside, but that has slowed considerably now.

There was more here than I have ever seen. In the house all the time. No idea how they get in. A lot less now that it is freezing out.
