Here in the Northeast and in the southern states, stink bugs have taken up residence after being introduced from Asia in the 1990’s. They can damage your crops, fruits and vegetables and are a real nuisance around the house. You’ll find them in your food, they crawl up your walls and can be found in every nook and cranny in the house. Not to mention they really do make your fingers stink when you pick them up.
What can be done about these nasty pests?
An enterprising Pennsylvanian decided that he had enough of these stink bugs so he devoted time and effort into developing a trap. It is Strube’s Stink Bug Trap. He designed several different models for different uses. There is even a very large custom made sting bug trap for orchards. Visit Strube’s website for more details. You can purchase the traps on-line. Strube’s Stink Bug Traps.
Strube bases his operation in Columbia, Pa, which sits on the Susquehanna, half way between York and Lancaster.
