I like that.  With bait, it would probably work with roaches and other critters.

I wish I had known about this last year. This year, no asian stink bugs whatsoever in my area. They must have all died over the winter. Maybe it was slightly too harsh this year?

Brilliant.  I've just come in from my beloved veg patch to find that these blasted critters (albeit slightly smaller prettier yellow and black ones) have devasted my brassicas - grrr.  I'm now off to make one of these 'nudgers' and will go seek with a purpose
