Default stink bugs

Anyone else have a stink bug problem in their coach? Brought mine home to get ready for this weekend and there are a ton in the windshield area. Nasty, stinky buggers.

What is he doing in the coach, spraying? Doesn't that smell for a bit and make it unusable for a while?

He fogs, I think. Can't go in for about 3 hours. We have been gone for a while and we have had very few. At a Corps of Engineers site in Mo. I saw a stink bug in the sink at the laundry facility....not ours.....

Markus- get some of those 4-hour foggers at HomeyLowes.... Turn off all gas and pilot lights and set 3 off in the coach- it should get rid of most of them.

Or you could just take them to Quartzsite with you. They really hate the dry climate and wonderful smell of brisket. Seriously! I was there and saw them leaving the Fedelimobile on mass.
