Expert Response

Stink bugs aggregating on the side of home in the fall is a natural part of their life cycle. It's not possible to stop that from happening. If there are a lot on the side of a home, you could vacuum them with a shop vac or spray them with water and place the fallen ones in a bucket of soapy water. This article explains further why insects appear on the sides/insides of homes and what to do about it: https://www.canr.msu.edu/news/why-are-all-these-bugs-appearing-on-the-side-or-inside-of-my-home
