Stink ?? Bug's.. how to keep them away!!

January 10, 2022 7:40pm CST
I know almost everyone knows what I'm talking about when I mention these pesky bug's. Now they're called stink bugs in our community. They also go by Pentatomidae, but none the less it's year around we all see them. So I have a few options on how to keep them gone. My son swears if we smash them that's how they get that (STINK) name. True, that's absolutely correct. So try these tips. Wrap them in a plastic bag take them outside to finish them off. Catch them toss in jar soapy water hot water, dish soap, or white vinager. Those will certainly do the job., Mint keeps them away naturally, they hate Clove oil. Scent's they dislike are lemon and Indian Lavender.

Welcome to Mylot Well, I haven't got the faintest idea what you are talking about. Nothing I have ever heard of before.

We have those horrible things here, they emit a pungent smell even if you touch them, When they feel treated they emit the smell. I would not care of them, but they eat through strawberries, raspberries, plums and tomatoes...

@GoAskAlice The babies are very different, I did not kill them when I noticed them on my tomatoes. Big mistake!

You can just drowned them you don’t need soap water when they die on there own or in water they have no smell. I usually just get some toilet paper and put them in the toilet and flush easy simple and no smell. But there is no real way to keep them away

What are these creatures you talk of? I don't think we have anything like that in England. Where do you live?

Most likely called 'shield bugs' in England.

I can't understand what you mean by these stink bugs. I don't have any in my house.

Hello and welcome to myLot. Enjoy the site! This is certainly the most outlandish topic for a first post I've ever seen. Very original!

Mint does not keep them away, they are often on my mind leaves. I am glad that they are not around now, winter is cold here.
