1.) Identify and Seal Entry Points


Start by inspecting your home for cracks and openings where stink bugs can enter. Common entry points include:

  • Windows
  • Doors
  • Siding
  • Utility pipes

Use caulk or weather stripping to seal these openings. This not only keeps stink bugs out but also improves your home’s energy efficiency. It’s a win-win!

2.) Utilize Natural or Chemical Repellents

Natural Repellents

Certain natural substances, like garlic spray, mint, or neem oil, can deter stink bugs. Apply these around entry points and garden areas.
