this is my stink bug death camp. I put some lysol and water in an old pickle jar, catch them in a plastic tumbler with an index card, dump them into the death camp and then when it gets full, i dump it in the toilet and flush the bastards. luckily this is a picture from my old place. the new place doesn't have a stink bug problem.

That's why if you have a pretty manageable stink bug population (a couple inside per day maybe), you are better off just picking them up with toilet paper and flushing them.

But this morning, I got into my car and opened the door and all along where there is the little spaces between the door and the body of the car, there were stinkbugs. I hurried up and backed the car out and opened all 4 doors and they were everywhere. I worked late last night and we have a big issue at work, and they were probably all over the car and tried to crawl in and just camped out there. Got about 30 or 40 of them. I knocked them all off down the road, but I'm worried I got some in my garage now, which will make it's way into my house.
So soapy water kills them?
