Stink bug invasion

Post by Artsyme » Fri Sep 03, 2010 9:28 am

Here in Roanoke VA we are being invaded by these pesky stinky bugs. They are sucking the buds of my roses, on my tomatoes and peppers doing the same. I have tried Sevin dust (but not on the "flowers" to save the bees), Isotox on the roses, a natural organic flying insect killer, and a regular flying insect killer. I have also used Bayer systemic flower food. Nothing seems to phase these guys. I am having the house exterior sprayed next week, to discourage them coming inside, but other than picking them off the roses, does anyone have any ideas?

You need an insecticide that is a contact poison - Sevin is for chewing insects. Here are some products that are safe for both vegetables and ornamentals and is listed for stink bugs:
  • EcoSMART Garden Insect Killer (kills and repels eith natural herbal oils
    Bayer Advanced Natria Insect, Disease & Mite Control
    Bonide Eight
    Bonide Insecticidal Soap
    Bayer Advanced Complete Insect Killer
