It took a number of years for the stink bug to populate to heavy infestation levels.  However, now that there have been reports of stink bugs in 33 of the 50 states, and the fact that they have grown to an extreme nuisance level in Pennsylvania, Maryland, New Jersey and Delaware, specialized treatment products are being developed to control stink bugs.  Available products include stink bug traps for indoor and outdoor use, specialized sprays and repellents.
