Default Trap Would Help Keep Stink Bugs Outdoors

Trap Would Help Keep Stink Bugs Outdoors
ScienceDaily (Aug. 3, 2009) — A trap to keep stinks bugs from Asia out of people’s homes is being developed by Agricultural Research Service (ARS) scientists.

Trap Would Help Keep Stink Bugs Outdoors
excerpt from above:
Quote:
The brown marmorated stink bug, Halyomorpha halys, has expanded its range to Virginia, West Virginia, New Jersey, Delaware and Oregon since its discovery in Pennsylvania about a decade ago.

The bug’s impact on crops remains to be seen, but the biggest problem so far has been that it looks for warm wintering sites and makes its way indoors when the weather turns cool each fall. These bugs don’t harm humans, but if they’re squashed or pulled into a vacuum cleaner, they smell.

Although I wouldn't like them indoors, I don't want them outdoors either. I want them gone. They destroy crops and gardens in no time flat here. They're our big plague. But unlike locusts that come every so many years, they come every year.
