    We have seen a lot of Stink Bugs lately.....was wondering about others experience. Does the Nature Center have any info? I read that roly poly's eat the Stink Bug larva and that will help kill the population. Where do you get roly poly's? Also, I have a child that is very interested in studying Stink Bugs - I searched the web and Loudoun County for task force or project info but couldn't find anything. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    I have had quite the experience with them over the past year, clearing them from a home in East Tennessee. They tended to collect on the west side of this older block home, we sprayed them with a mixture of Dawn and water. We also spread diatomaceous earth in the window sills and dusted it in the crevices at the tops of windows and baseboards. The diatomaceous earth is very effective, but has to remain dry to work. Completely eradicated them from this little house.
