The non-staining formula can be used on hard surfaces and fabrics and does not leave behind an unpleasant odor.

What Is a Stink Bug Anyway?
The stink bug is part of the family of insects called pentatomids, which means five-sided. There are a variety of stink bugs including the brown marmorated stink bug (the most prevalent species in the United States), green stink bug, spined soldier stink bug, two spotted stink bug, arboreal stink bug, red shouldered stink bug, and the rice stink bug.
Stink bugs were first spotted in the U.S. in September, 1998 in Allentown, PA. Since then, the invasive species has now spread to 41 states, including the western states of California and Oregon. The term 'stink bugs' refers to the defensive scent glands located on the underbelly of the bugs. When frightened or smashed, the bugs release a very unpleasant smell. Though not harmful to homeowners, stink bugs can take over your house in a matter of days, quickly turning from a few bugs into a full blown infestation.
Crack and Crevice Treatment:
- Using the directional stream nozzle setting on the two-way spray attachment, hold container 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.

Review RateEffective stink bug deterrent/treatment
Noticibly reduced the number of stinkbugs getting into our home. I would recommend this product as a key part of a comprehensive pest control strategy.
Very hard to find warnings. Finally found statement that it was harmful to aquatic life, so when it gets into water supply, can harm swimming things. Warning for skin and eye irritation makes me cautious. I would like to sesyour studies prior to my selecting this product.Response From Terro®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateYou've saved us thousands of dollars!!!
First, let me tell you, we own a hybrid camper. That's a hardshell camper with the canvas/tent ends that lay down to make a bed. I have been fighting stink bugs in this camper for several years. When my husband got our camper out of storage and backed it up the driveway...there were so many stink bugs in the camper that we had to leave the door open for over 8 hours just so that I could get inside to clean it. I am not someone afraid of bugs...there were just SO MANY!!! I also am OCD about cleaning...so, hence my problem with the stink bugs. I told my husband that we were going to get another camper and that I had had enough of this problem. Instead, I went online and ordered several cans of the Terro Stink Bug Killer. I KNEW this stuff wasn't going to work as we had tried several other supposed stink bug killers, traps and everything. I cleaned the camper and sprayed an entire can inside and another can outside the camper. Imagine my excitement as we opened the door the next day and found only two live stink bugs and over 50 dead ones. (Where do these things come from????) I am so happy! This stuff WORKS!!! I am sharing my empty cans with everyone in our campground that has a camper with canvas on it...stink bugs LOVE canvas for some reason. Thank you, Terro! You have saved us thousands of dollars!!!!
Review RateGreat product that works well in the Indiana area
I found the Terro stink bug product last year. I sprayed the perimeter of my garage door including floor at entrance & didn't have any more in the garage. Those that were in the garage died when trying to get out. I also sprayed my sliding door frame where stink bugs like to hibernate in winter. I like the small sprayer to spray window frames where they also hibernate over the winter. I use all Terro products & have great success.
