So what's the best way to rid yourself of these nasty little creatures? Well you could spend $50 on some expensive trap that might work or you could just use some stuff you probably have sitting around the house.

A group of stink bug researchers at the University of Virginia say all you really need is a large pan filled with water and dish soap, and a light over the pan to attract the bugs. Put it in a dark room and the stink bugs can't resist climbing in. Since they can't swim they end up drowning. And just like that...your stink bug problem is gone.
