Product Overview

Now featuring a new and improved lure that lasts for 3 months!

There are dozens of different kinds of stink bugs throughout North America.  The Brown Marmorated stink bug is found mostly in the mid-Atlantic states, with populations increasing in Ohio and Indiana.   


How The Dead-Inn Stink Bug Trap Works:

The DEAD-INN™ Stink Bug Trap is a dynamic combination of a pheromone lure and visual attraction. The patented design of color and shape was developed for maximum effectiveness based on the searching behavior of the stink bug. The lure is a potent eco-friendly aggregation pheromone synthesized under strict guidelines.  It is enclosed in a controlled release dispenser that continues to attract bugs for 30 or more days. When bugs enter the trap they have a tough time getting out and eventually die.  The reusable trap can catch hundreds and hundreds of stink bugs.  

What The Dead-Inn Stink Bug Trap Will Catch:

The pheromones utilized in Dead-Inn Stink Bug Trap lures will exclusively attract 

  • Brown Marmorated Stink Bugs (Halyomorpha halys)
  • Green Stink Bugs (Chinavia hilaris)
  • Native Brown Stink Bugs (specifically Euschistus servus, E. conspersus, E. heros, E. obscurus, E. tristigmus)
  • Harlequin Stink Bugs
  • Red Shouldered Stink Bugs

How To Use Dead-Inn Stink Bug Traps: 

Simply place the attractant lure into the trap and place outside about 10 ft from your home or garden.  For best results, the trap should be elevated, on a fence or the like, so the the stink bugs can easily see the trap. The lure will attract bugs up to a distance of 50 feet. Both immature stages and adults are attracted to the trap. Adults in hibernation indoors are not attracted to the aggregation lure. The trap was designed so that beneficial insects are not attracted.

The trap is only designed for use outdoors and will not attract stink bugs during the hibernation stage inside.  In the spring when the weather gets warm, stink bugs head back outside and look for a place to mate and some food to eat.  That is when the DEAD-INN Stink Bug Trap will be most effective.

When To Use Dead-Inn Stink Bug Traps:

The trap can be used year round, however, stink bugs are generally only eating, mating and laying eggs outside during late Spring, Summer and early Fall.  To achieve best results, place outdoors from July thru September/October (location dependent) when temperatures are consistently 70 degrees and warmer, and there is an abundant food supply.

Stink bugs will start to emerge from hibernation mode in April as temperatures warm, however, physiologically, they are not yet able to aggregate (respond to the pheromone).  Until there is an adequate food supply outside; fruits, vegetables, nuts, flowers, trap capture will be limited.  

The DEAD-INN Stink Bug Trap is being used by the USDA and all Universities where the Brown Marmorated Stink Bug (BMSB) is a concern.  In 2010, when testing began, the DEAD-INN lures were not applied earlier than June, so no data was available until then.  In New Jersey captures of some overwintering adults started in early June, whereas in West Virginia overwintering adults did not respond until Mid-July. 

The lure will attract all 4 nymph BMSB stages starting mid-June.  The new generation of BMSB adults will not be present until August or September. 

DEAD-INN Stink Bug Trap Usage Guidelines
Time of Year Stink Bug Stages Caught
Mid June - Sept/Oct All nymph stages 2,3,4,5
Mid July - Sept/Oct Overwintering adults*
August - Sept/Oct New adults*
*Results will vary based on location, temperature, and food supply available  


No Stink Bugs will respond indoors, nor will the lure pull/attract stink bugs from indoors to outdoors.


Package Contents:

1- 12 week lure, pyramid base, cone, jar, 2 metal stakes, 1 elastic band, 2 metal hook rings, assembly and use instructions.

How To Empty Trap:

To empty the trap, unsecure trap from ground or structure, turn trap over and unsnap the jar.  Empty stink bugs into garbage or compost pile.  If there are bugs still alive in the trap, empty into a bucket a soapy water or into a plastic garbage bag and tie shut.

    Ok so these do actually work! Lots of other traps out there don't catch anything. The attractant is the key ingredient. Cheers to a good idea!

    Not Just A Clever Name

    Posted by Leslie Arazando on 2nd Aug 2021

    Kills them all! This is not just a fun name for a product. It really does what it says and traps all the stink bugs until they die. We have the brown Mamorated type and they are NASTY little creatures. They are all over our property and it drives us crazy. Thakfully we just found these traps and the matching bait as a solution to our problems. These are pretty good sized they stand a little more than a foot tall. They will hold A LOT of dead bugs. The yellow stand part is heavy duty plastic that comes with stakes to hold it up and keep it where you put it. You might also be able hang them but we did not do that, just placed them on the ground.
