Stink bugs are approximately 0.68" long and are colored in shades of brown or green. Stink bugs are harmless to humans. However, they could become pests once they're in your home. Stink bugs, similar to skunks, release an unpleasant odor as a defense mechanism preventing predators from attacking, hence their name "Stink" Bugs. Moreover, stink bugs release this smell almost every time they land to ensure protection around them. The worst part is, the smell will last a very long time (up to 6 months!) and it will attract more stink bugs, creating a hibernating bin.

There are some liquid brown marmorated stink bug insecticides that are safe to use indoors as well. Dust products are usually NOT safe or consumable for small children and animals.However, dust products are used for spot treatment in areas of very little or no traffic. Although they treat areas with little or no traffic, there are chances that animals or small children may find the dust. There is just one dust that is natural which is Mother Earth Dust. However, all dusts can be inhaled during application which may potentially be harmful.
Therefore, when you are using indoor pesticides, you must remove the animal and all people from the treated area until the pesticide is dry (typically about 2-3 hours after treatment). Also, keep in mind that all product labels must be thoroughly reviewed before use.
The stink bugs are entering inside from outdoors, this can be anywhere in the basement, attic, or in the living floors where there is a window or entry way, or any crack and crevice on your structure.To prevent them from entering, something called a "barrier treatment" is going to need to be applied. This is creating a barrier around the perimeter of your structure with the diluted solution of Masterline Bifenthrin and water. From the base of the structure, you will need to spray about 4 feet high and 4 feet out, also spraying around window frames, door frame, the garage door frame, and any utility pipes that are leading to the inside of the structure.
Indoors, you should spray where you are seeing infestations, window sills, entry door frames (front door, back door, door to garage).You will also need to seal any open cracks and crevices. It sounds like hard work, once you begin, it should be a non-difficult task.
