Hope Is The Thing Without Stinkbugs

Oh, happy day!  No longer will I have to shell out mega-bucks in order to eradicate the stinkbugs from our attic.  Some good old American know-how is all it takes, as is apparent from this news video.  That's right - homemade stinkbug traps!  Put away the math books, kids - it's time for entomology!

You have to look at the video - I can't find a picture to show you.

David, of course, is pleased that this project will include duct tape.  I'm putting him in charge.  Now I just have to dig through the neighbors' recycling for a bunch of 2-liter soda bottles...


  1. Duct tape and soda bottles? I may need to check to see if my husband has any patents pending.

  2. Can't watch the video, would rather not see bugs, even though I could learn just what the heck a stinkbug is...

  3. BRILLIANT! Crafting party at my house tonight. How many do you think can be made before the next flea market?

  4. Or give each kid a liter bottle of Mountain Dew and watch the fun begin...
    DIY pest extermination--that's the sort of ingenuity this country was founded on!

  5. I am delighted to find this for my sister, who has a rampant stinkbug problem. And thanks so so much for visiting me yesterday!

  6. I missed something: so how is it they can get in but they can't get out?
