Stinkbugs have been invading homes more than usual this season. To put the rise of stinkbugs into perspective, last year in a 5-day period 36 stink bugs were caught in a trap. This year in a 5-day period 200 stinkbugs were caught!

Scientists at Washington State University say they urge residents to send samples of stinkbugs they find to track their whereabouts.

You can either email a photograph to or place a specimen in a pillbox in the mail to WSU Extension Office, 2403 S. 18th St. Suite 100, Union Gap, WA 98903.
