    stink bugs

    look for

    a warm place to overwinter.

    , become a

    nuisance

    .

  • Using a few simple

    tricks

    , it's easy to get rid of stink bugs reliably.

Offenbach - When it gets colder in autumn, various insects find their way into houses and apartments.

Even the unpleasant

stink bug

would prefer to overwinter dry and warm.

Except for its smell, the stink bug is harmless, but it can quickly become a nuisance in the home.

But with a few simple tricks and tips you can get them back out of the apartment or even prevent them from coming in.

Trick 1: Seal leaks to keep the stink bugs from getting in

There are often leaks, especially in the attic.

These leaks allow

stink bugs

to enter the house quickly and unnoticed.

With a

sealant

or silicone

the leaks are quickly eliminated.

Both silicone and sealant are inexpensive in hardware stores.

Trick 2: fly screens and door seals against stink bugs

Fly screens and door seals also reliably help

prevent

stink bugs

from

entering

.

A positive side effect: other insects and pests also stay outside.

There are also glue traps for the windowsill in the hardware store.

Trick 3: Prevent the stink bug from entering with insecticide and vinegar essence

Insecticides

on outer walls ensure that

stink bugs

prefer to fly on.

It doesn't have to be a chemical insecticide.

With 125 ml of water, 60 ml of vinegar and 30 ml of dishwashing detergent in a spray bottle, you can easily make your own insecticide that helps just as well as ready-made sprays from specialist retailers.

Trick 4: Don't suck in or crush stink bugs

Stink bugs give off

their gross odor when they panic.

If they are caught with a vacuum cleaner, for example, they give off their stench, which can still

stink

days later

.

It gets worse when the marbled

stink bugs are

crushed.

Instead of killing the animals, it is better to

capture

them in an animal-friendly way with a

glass

and a sheet of paper and then release them outside.

Mosquitoes

are just as unwelcome as stink bugs

.

You can get rid of these with a few very simple tricks.
