Where do the sucked-up bugs lodge? Can we eventually release the bugs outside without risking skin contact?
I am moving to Pennsylvania, which I understand is being overrun with stink bugs. Those bugs are large (adults are up to an inch long, and nearly as wide). Where will they lodge once sucked into the Atrix Bug-Sucker, and can we count on them not escaping once vacuumed-up? Can we eventually release the bugs outside without risking skin contact with them? How? Do we just shake them out of the bag?
The Atrix Bug-Sucker HEPA Backpack Vacuum comes with a Shake Out Bag which is where the insects will be caught. You are then required to take the vacuum outdoors, remove the bag and shake the bugs out of the bag. The vacuum can also be used with a HEPA Dust Bag which will contain the insects a little bit better for your needs. You can see all of these parts and how the vacuum is used by reading over the Atrix Bug-Sucker HEPA Backpack Vacuum owners manual which we have linked in this answer for your convenience but which is always available on the vacuum product page on our website.
