but now what the fuck do i do, i cant keep that many in a jar again
Here's a screenshot in case you guys want to spread it.
You can move them farther from the house or if you really really really need to kill them (I kinda like bugs), just stake them with needle dipped in alcohol. That just kills them and I don't think they've got much time to feel any pain.
Those gangly looking ones aren't stink bugs, theyre western conifer seed bugs. The best thing you can do is find cracks in walls, windows and any other entry point and seal it shut with tape or caulk or whatever you have available.
this is real btw it just happened today i wish i wouldve taken a pic of the jar i will take one next time i get some in there and post in on my insta @shrimp.png and also here but if you wanna see it check up on there in a while
Just buy commercially available bug spray (bed bug & flea) which contains Permethrin and spary the outside of the house, especially around windows and/or vent/a/c openings, you autistic psychopath

whats the worst way you guys have stubbed your toes /b/?
Yo i live in PA and this shit is exactly what i did, except it was a water bottle instead of a jar. Filled up an entire 16oz bottle before throwing them away. Fucking idiots brought these things in from China to stop the lady bug overinfestation around like 2012 but didnt realize they breed faster than anything on this planet so PA got overrun with stink bugs.
i live in the middle of fucking nowhere and the attic is hot as shit with tons of tiny cracks so its a fucking breeding ground for these fucks
and yes it looked like they were zombies
OP you need to call a exterminator to spray the outside of your house with talstar pesticide! If you want to be cheap you can order it on amazon and get a decent garden sprayer and a mask and spray if on the all siding and the windows on your house. Do not spray it inside only outside. You will not see them for months soap and water is only a contact killer and spending 150$ on a exterminator to treat your house is worth the money not to have to deal with these ugly things.
Forgot to say that talstar also kills tons of other bugs spiders mosquitoes flys bees wasps ladybugs pretty much any bugs that will touch the outside of the house or window which is a huge plus!
Kek when I lived with my aunt in PA those fuckers were everywhere. She lived in this converted pumphouse so it wasn't up to code. I TOOK A 5x8 glue trap and filled that thing entirely in less than 5 minutes
if you spray it yourself on the oustide of the house make sure you use gloves a mask and goggles and you will be fine. But just living indoors after it is sprayed outside of the house yea no problem just dont go about touching any surfaces sprayed till dry other then that its really safe and works for months i think up to 90day depending on the strength used. Its what most people use in rural areas that have stinkbug and ladybug issues you can look it up on youtube plenty of videos about how to spray your siding and windows properly
Yeah just dont get it on you when spraying and you will be fine. Other then that dont touch it when wet. Once dry its fine and it doesnt get into the house or effect the air inside the house. When it drys it binds micro crystals to the surface that the bugs walk on and they get on the bug and end up killing it quick. Just make sure small children dont lick the side of the house and your fine lol. Its worth it in my option to keep those nasty bugs out of the house it also helps to caulk any holes around the windows and side of the house where they can get in.
I live out in the country and we have some of those stink bugs. Nice thing with them is they don't breed prolifically. Asian lady beetles however, those fuckers. Everywhere.
I just took to doing daily round ups of the fuckers with a cup of 91% isopropyl alchohol.
Just stinkbugs? Why would you care? They're completely harmless.
Every year, there is a month or two when they are about ten on my screens and windows during the day, but they don't bite, sting, get into food, or cause any trouble; they just cling there. They don't bother me, I don't bother them. Ants, OTOH, go squish.
Pic is the stinkbugs, "亀虫".
OP you need to catch and release, but you need to paint them before release, just a quick stroke of color and then you can see if they are really coming back.
If they are you can have distance contests (how far away will they come back from), most returns, etc.
Tose are assassin beetles anon and they can fuck you right up if they bite you. My buddy got bit on his stomach and it was ridiculous how bad the swelling was. Look them up and get some doctor doom bug bombs and gas the fuckers
that's the brown marmolated stinkbug the chinks gave us in eastern USA that swarms everywhere and gets into every fucking corner of everyone's house during winter, fuck those little fuckers. I find like 100 of them in my room every day,.
>but now what the fuck do i do
Most bugs aren't actually dead when they're lying motionless. I had a bee that got inside and still moved occasionally after 5 days of laying still. You've got to do more than pile them together, you've gotta gas or poison them unless you're going to put several jars out.
Cool story, that's not a stink bug. It's a western conifer seed bug.
Pic related is a stink bug.
That's a Western Conifer Seed Bug. We used to get them a lot in Montana. They congregate on the sides of houses that get a lot of sun. I loved killing them. I would get so many coming thru my air conditioner that I just left scissors next to the window to cut them in half and then once a week I would vacuum the pieces up.
One side effect was that when you squish them they smell like green apple. I thought about it so much that I ended up going on Amazon and getting green apple dish soap, green apple jolly ranchers, and green apple laffy taffy. It tasted so god.
