What Is a Stink Bug Anyway?
Stink bugs were first spotted in the U.S. in Allentown PA. Since then, the invasive species has spread to 42 states and two Canadian provinces. Stink bugs are aptly named, referring to the defensive scent glands located on the underbelly of the insects. When frightened or smashed, the bugs release a foul smell.
Crack and Crevice Treatment:
- Hold the aerosol can upright and tilt extension tube to a 90° angle with can.
- Place injection tip ½ inch into cracks and crevices where insects may be hiding, living and breeding.
- Release a one-second spray per spot.
- In serious infestations, if possible, place spots approximately 12 inches apart.
- In light infestations or for preventative treatment, place spots approximately three feet apart.
- In long running cracks, move the injector tip along the crack while spraying. Move at the rate of one linear foot per second in heavy infestations and three feet per second in light infestation.
Treating Outside Surfaces With Stink Bug Aerosol Spray:
- Spray foundation of the home or building where insects are active and may find entrance up to a height of two to three feet.

Review RateWorks well!
Sprayed around the window sills and doors and was skeptical at first but after a week I have not seen one bug. Hopefully they have moved on from my house for good!
Review RateReally worksI have used Terra products before. This product is the only one I have used to kill stink bugs with one squirt. I can't say enough good things about it.
Review Ratedoesn't work
I bought this at Tractor Supply and it doesn't work. It says on the label kills on contact. After multiple sprays on them they fly away. Wasted $10. It also says to spray around house, doors, etc. I did that and they landed right on sprayed area. Very disappointed in this product.Response From Terro®Tara : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateGreat for fast killI spray this stuff on the window sills under my 30 ft high chalet windows...it kills most that go to the daylight during the day.....then I go outside and spray around windows and doors....it is the most effective and least smelly spray we have found on the market...great product..especially when you have a large infestation like we do....they live in the woods by the millions so we will never eradicate them sadly!!
Review RateGreat productI used this on porch and around Windows and screens where stink bugs were sunning themselves and getting into our home. The number has been reduced almost 85%. Now we just sweep up dead ones.
Review RateGreat ProductI was catching hundreds of stinkbugs per day in my store's front windows. Used this product and I haven't seen a single bug since. I tried dozens of things and this is the only one that was effective. Amazing... I highly recommend this.
Review RateAmazon ReviewI sprayed this around my windows and it did help decrease the number of bugs that came into my home. They are relentless critters and it takes perseverance to keep them at bay. I don't think anything will totally eliminate them, but this certainly helped.
Review RateAmazon ReviewIt doesn't kill stink bugs right away, but I did spray it in all the gaps around my windows & doorways. They seem to be less in volume now.
Review RateAmazon ReviewSprayed around window sills and I still got a few bugs. Sprayed a second time and I have not had any in my house for at least three months! Extremely happy.
Review RateAmazon ReviewI have been involved in warfare for 3 years with a stink bug invasion; and have tried a number of approaches including traps and Raid. Did some research on their seasonal patterns, determined their post hibernation egress route and laid down this toxic chemical. It's taking about 2 months, but I am eliminating them, Terro has been essential.
Some problems with the spray unit becoming detached, but it was fixable.
