I watched a news video this morning about a guy in Pennsylvania named Andy Strube who, because of a stink bug invasion at his homestead, invented a light that attracts stink bugs and thus kills them. It started with a duct tape adhesive covered coffee can over a light.
Apparently it works because he started a business selling them. Ingenious. Got a problem? Solve it. His patent is pending and there are several other types for sale online by other people. Here’s his website: www.stinkbugtrapsonline.com
Have any of my readers used this or something like it to rid their gardens of stink bugs? Spring/summer tomato and squash growing season is coming and I’d like to save my future harvest from these pests. Let me know what you’ve used and/or if you’ve tried this trap.
Disclaimer: I have never used the stink bug trap and am not affiliated with this or any other company that makes them. I do not make money from these companies. The only way I’ve ever killed stink bugs is with a store-brand wasp spray which my Extension Officer recommended.
