Research is still being conducted on developing an effective, affordable trapping system for the Brown Marmorated Stink Bug.  And, while traps are being marketed on-line, we cannot justifiably recommend one or another.   
Be advised that the use of a pheremone trap attracts the target insect, and just as in the case of Japanese beetle traps, the trap should be placed as far away from the target host plant as possible.
