Julian Smith, the developer of a special stink bug trap which catches stink bugs has dealt with the hassle of these pests for a while.

All that is required to create this kind of trap is a small LED light, a soda bottle, masking tape, duct tape and also a razor blade.

This snare operates by getting in pests, particularly stink bugs, along with light and trapping them in the bottle of soda. Masking tape can be put on the sides to make it simpler for the pests to scale the bottle. Once inside the bottle the bugs are incapable of climbing up due to the roof of the container simply being a convex nature. The snare can be placed overnight or during the daytime if the shades are drawn. There's no more task that needs to be performed as soon as the trap is placed, the bottle will look after everything.

Making the very trap itself is very simple. Take the bottle of soda and cut it with a razor blade a third of the way down, as soon as the curve of the opening starts to unite into the middle cylinder section of the soda bottle. Position the LED light at the base of the bottle inside and wrap duct tape across the bottom. And then flip the top which was cut-off upside-down and put it in to the bottle. Masking tape could be placed on the ends to make it simpler for the insects to get inside the bottle.

In the morning, you'll put the trap on the siding of your house or garage, enabling the stinkbugs to crawl into the gaps in between the cardboard and the timber. At the end of the day, pick them up and clear the trap into a large black garbage bag. Spray insecticide inside the bag and tie it up, efficiently killing the insects.

To build the trap, uniformly space the portions of wood under the first huge piece of cardboard and staple or tape them together. Flip the trap over and perform repeatedly along with the other piece of cardboard and your trap will be finished!
