Default Tired of stink bugs.... well.... this might just work!!!

Stink bugs get old after a while. I went online looking for more info on how to deal with them and stumbled on this-


I'm gonna try it. Those little Sylvania LED lights are cheap enough and I've got bags of 2 liter pop bottles so why not!!! Watch the whole video.... his idea is really genius. Here's hoping it works!!!

I used black duct tape. Got 4 of the lights, but only made one. I'm a little worried about putting something with a battery inside a bottle (with a funnel) because of water. I should have poked holes in the bottom first.

I made one, and it seems like it should work. But (whispering here) it seems the stink bugs haven't made it to the garden yet. So I came up with an emply bottle 2 nights in a row.

The YouTube said he paid like $5 for 1 of the Sylvania LED lights at Home Depot. I found a stack of an offbrand called Meridian of 4 including the batteries for $6.99 at Menards so that's what I bought. I got home and cut down a 2 liter pop bottle and realized we didn't have any black duct tape and the black electrical tape was no where to be found so.... I'm gonna have to go back to the store this week for the black tape so I can make 1 of these and set it up. I haven't noticed any stink bugs yet here either so I'm thinking there's still plenty of time.
