I have 25 acres of apples and pears in Oregon, and the Brown Marmorated stink bug has just come in. What are some natural methods to deal with them?

Trap cropping helps, but the bugs on the trap crops have to either be removed by hand, vacuumed up, or eaten by predators.

Guineas will eat 'em, it seems. So maybe a combo of trap cropping a guinea assasins?
