[quote]On our most recent trip (Lake Anna VA, Oct 16-19) our Bigfoot
was swarming with spiny soldier bugs (or spiny stink bugs). The trailer had only been in storage for about 5 weeks. How are they getting in. Any safe ideas for getting rid of the ones we have yet to find and squish? (Must have squished 50 or more in 3 days)
Stink bugs are a big problem for us in our home in pennsylvania..... we have a monthly pest control (ehrlich) that treats the home and they have no known remedy to rid the home of these bugs....... I learned the hard way to never squish these critters as they really stink bad and the smell comes right thru the paper towel and you can't get the smell off your hand. the best so far is to wash your hands with listerine. I trap them in a paper towel and release them unharmed outside so they don't release their stink....they are nasty bugs that won't hurt you.... they want to come in in the fall
and leave in the spring.... I have pushed paper towels into all known openings to slow them down which helps.
these bugs flatten out like ribbon and can sneak into any small opening..... I also noticed that they tend to cling onto the south and west side of the home (sunny side) and the north side of the home is almost barren of them.....I dread this time of year because of them
