Remove weeds from the garden, lawn and landscape.
Place light covers over garden plants.
Fill a bucket with water, add a squirt of dish soap, and set the bucket under an infested plant. Shake the plant vigorously, and let the bugs drop into the bucket and drown in the soapy water. Repeat with the rest of the plants, changing the water if necessary.
Search the leaves for stink bug eggs, pluck them off, and crush them.
Pour 2 tablespoons of pesticidal soap into an empty spray bottle, fill the bottle with water, and shake it. Keep this mixture on hand to kill remaining adult stink bugs as you find them.
For long-term protection against stink bugs and other pests, apply a timed-release residual protectant around the perimeter of the property.
