With the end of winter bringing pleasant weather and mild temperatures, these tiny creatures are gradually reappearing in many regions. Discover the secret that can keep them at bay.

One little bug, then two... As temperatures remain mild for the season, stink bugs are making a comeback. While the days are enjoyable, the nights stay cool, prompting them to seek warmth in our homes. Although not dangerous, it’s certainly not pleasant to find oneself invaded by these critters, especially since they can rapidly colonize our living spaces.

It’s common to see these brown-gray insects during this season:

  • Sticking to ceilings

  • Gathering by the dozens on facades

  • Hiding behind shutters

  • Lurking on window edges

Left unchecked, their invasion can swiftly escalate, as they are capable of laying 20 to 80 eggs post-mating! While stink bugs pose no harm to humans due to their lack of biting, they can still be a nuisance, potentially triggering allergies in humans and animals with their characteristic defense mechanism: a nauseating smell.

Dealing with an Infestation:

Once settled in, stink bugs are hard to eliminate. The market lacks an effective commercial repellent against them. However, an unexpected ally emerges - garlic! This simple, natural, and affordable ingredient can be your best defense against stink bug invasions, helping you reclaim your home and peace of mind.

If you have only a few at home, you can easily relocate them outdoors using a simple garlic clove.

For larger infestations, it's time to take action. Prepare this grandmother's remedy:

  • Ingredients: 400 ml of water, 3 tablespoons of garlic powder, or 2/3 crushed garlic cloves.

  • Method: Combine in a spray bottle and apply the mixture to all window ledges.

This effective repellent won't kill the bugs but will certainly drive them away and prevent them from entering, as stink bugs abhor the smell of garlic. This method is also effective against green stink bugs, offering a preventive solution against these and other related pests.
