Nontoxic for Plants
The presence of the homemade repellent mixture on your plants will deter stink bugs from feeding on the leaves or crops, or even laying eggs there. Furthermore, this solution is safe for your garden, though it’s advisable to thoroughly wash your produce before consumption.
Interestingly, stink bugs are drawn to the color yellow. Therefore, planting some yellow-hued trap plants like sunflowers can serve as an effective decoy. Contrary to what the term “trap plants” might suggest, it doesn’t work like a Venus Flytrap; rather, it serves to redirect these pests away from the rest of your garden.
