Put It in Plastic
Another viable strategy is to patiently wait until a substantial number of stink bugs have congregated on the trap plant. At this point, you can uproot the plant, place it in a sealable garbage bag, and leave it to bake in the sun. The heat within the tightly sealed bag will effectively exterminate the pests.
Prefer Fruit and Vegetables
Despite the disagreeable odor that these bugs emit being quite off-putting, that’s not the biggest concern. These insects have a fondness for garden produce, including fruits and vegetables. Indeed, they have the potential to decimate an entire crop if the infestation isn’t addressed promptly.
