Consider Using Pine-Sol

You should first identify stink bugs before doing anything – they are triangular-shaped insects about three to four inches long. They have a brownish color that looks like a metal shield. If you notice something smelly, then you should definitely look for these insects. 

There’s been a video going around on TikTok by a creator called @mistyharston in which she explains what she does to get rid of stink bugs at home. She suggests using the Original Pine-Sol (it has to be original only because it has pine oil in it, and stink bugs are not fond of it!).

Empty two spray bottles or buy new ones which you will use to spray the bugs. You should dilute the product in two ways – the first one is not as strong and is safe for inside use, while the other one has a stronger scent and is perfect for outside. 

Choose a bottle for inside use and fill most of it with water, then add a cap full of Pine-Sol. Shake the bottle and apply the solution on the inside of the windows.

For the outside solution, you can use a 50:50 or 80:20 ratio of Pine-Sol and water. This solution should be applied outside on your windows and doors.
