RE: More Stinkbugs,But There is Some Hope

The best treatment for sting bugs is DE and it is organic. It dehydrates them and kill them in 2 days. It melts the protective wax later around their bodies. The only catch you have to wear a gloves and a mask when you apply the powder. A friend told me you can melt the powder in water and spray it I never tried that yet.

Diatomaceous earth? Like what is used in a pool filter?
