Product Overview

For superior indoor/outdoor control of stink bugs and kudzu bugs, we recommend also purchasing our exclusive Stink Bug Control Kit

The Strube Sticky Stink Bug Trap is THE ORIGINAL and one of the most effective Stink bug catching lights you can buy.  Recently the Strube Sticky Stink Bug Trap has shown to catch Kudzu Bugs as well. This excellent stink bug trap was built from the ground up by entrepreneur Andy Strube from Pennsylvania, who spent months designing and testing the perfect trap to solve his own irritating stink bug infestation.  The trap you see today is based on hundreds of tests and feedback from customers, homeowners, farmers, university professors and experts in the stink bug control field.  The patent pending stink bug trap features a combination of light, scented lure and super sticky catch glue that ensures Stink Bugs cannot escape.  The internal light of the trap gently warms and releases an all-natural scent that is barely detectable to humans but irresistible to stink bugs.  Combined, these attractants pull stink bugs into landing on the traps exterior, where they are quickly stuck!  One trap will catch hundreds of stink bugs. Once it is full you can replace the center cylinder with a replacement cartridge to continue catching stink bugs.  Made right in Pennsylvania, USA.

Indoor use only.

How to use the Strube Sticky Stink Bug Trap

The Strub Sticky Stink Bug Trap should be hung indoors.  It contains a hook that allows the trap to hang.  The warmer the area, the more active the bugs will be, and the more effective the trap. That means upper floors and attics, where heat collects, are most conducive to catching stink bugs.

Leave the trap in one place and let it run all night to catch as many stink bugs as possilbe. Turn off any other lights in the room. The trap needs to be the primary light source. The trap can be hung near a window but not in direct sunlight, which could melt the glue on the outside of the trap.


What the news media is saying:

Does it really work?
"Definitely, it’s filled with bugs," said Oster. "I don’t have a bad infestation. I was surprised at how many I caught."
- CBS News, Pittsburgh, PA

"I installed it in an upstairs bathroom, where I know many of the bugs enter the house. I caught 10 bugs the first night, and the trap continues to lure the insects. The company's Facebook page is filled with photos of traps littered with dead stink bugs."
- Pittsburgh Post Gazette

    A real solution

    By Jc on 09/06/2011

    Stink bugs swarm toward light and warmth when it starts getting cold outside in order to find a place to hibernate until spring/summer. When they feel the heat of spring/summer, they then try to get back outside, where they will find vegetation to eat and on which to lay their eggs. (They do nothing but hibernate in your home, though many more may be there than you know so it may seem they have multiplied come spring. They do not multiply in your walls, unless you're growing apple trees in there). Other traps claim to attract with a "pheromone", and claim the bugs will dessicate or dry out inside the trap. Are they kidding? They won't have eaten/drank a thing for 6 months or more inside your home, but happily fly away in spring. Dessication will not work and it is doubtful pheromones will either. This has all the right elements and should work. It's the beginning of September, and in a normal year, the swarming will be in full swing by mid-October (and every warm day thereafter). I will update this review then.

    strube sticky stink bug trap

    By Janied on 10/04/2012

    I bought two of these because we were overun last year. I also bought the extra sleeves figuring I would need them when they got full. I have hundreds on the outside of my house every day, and about 50 in the house when we get home from work. After three weeks, the one in the house has caught 14. The one in the garage has caught 6. Dawn and water sprayed on them kills them.

    Strube Stink Bug Trap is a Life Saver!!

    By Daisydukes on 10/20/2011

    I have been pested by these bugs for the past year! I had tried a couple other traps on the market with no results. So happy I found this trap! It continues to accumulate stink bugs everyday. It actually makes a really great night light too.

    Mishandled Box Containing the Strube Stink Bug Trap

    By Patricia on 10/25/2012

    Verified Purchase

    One side of the cardboard holding this trap in place inside the box had broken loose and the trap was loose on one end and broke the plastic tray to be put on the bottom of the trap. I tried to tape it back together but can't get it to stay on the trap. Maybe the box was not handled properly and caused the cardboard holder to break loose.

Q
After the outside of the stink bug trap is covered with stinkbugs, how do you discard the bugs?

Can you buy a new outside sticky surface or do you have to buy a new lamp?

You can purchase a replacement cartrige to use once the cylinder that the trap comes with is full.  A screw will allow the top where the plug is to detach from the cylinder allowing you to discard the used portion of the trap and replace it with a new glue cartridge.

Q
Can the stink bug trap be mounted outside in the elements?

Also, what is optimal range from house to avoid swarming and still be affective?
A
The Strube Stink Bug Trap is meant to be used indoors.  You could use it outside if it was protected, like under an overhang.  You would not want the trap to be in direct sunlight or rain.  This trap will attract stink bugs in the general area, so the optimal range would be wherever you have a protective overhang away from the house.
