That's doin' it the hard way, IMHO. We just suck 'em up with the shop vac and let 'em die in the filter bag. But whatever works for you.

3 stink bugs here! In one of the campgrounds, I got a platoon of those itty bitty black ants. And, sometwhere in TN or NC, the stink bugs started.

I have never dealt with stink bugs before, been rving since 1992. First time.

We've been invaded by both - used the vacuum cleaner/shop vac. They don't all die, so empty any filter outside.
This year it was Argentine ants - thousands of them. That vacuum came in handy again!

Use the vacuum, then bug spray into the hose. Our problem was ladybugs. About a dozen vacuum bags full. And still find a few dead(we hope) around two years later.

I am still looking for an effective over time pesticide that's not toxic to Alex the furry one (Cat) and I. I have found some that are "Pet/child" friendly but they are short acting (Work too) (Get 'em at places like HOme Depot ECO ) but none that work long term..

The active ingredents are 2.. one is Cinnamon oil.. So in my Bedroom after I swept up I disted the cinnamon colored carpet with the real deal.. Seems to be working as I've not seen them in that room since.


Home is where I park it.

Shop vac for the win. Quick and easy, and no nasty residues left behind.

If you really have the urge to spray something on them, use bug soap. It's harmless to pets and humans, and it kills them dead.
