Neem Oil
by: Sue NZ.

Would just like to reiterate the wonders of using organic neem oil. The green stink bugs are a real pest in my garden and as soon as I see any trace I will be out with the neem oil. They spread so rapidly one needs to keep on top of them early.

How to Get Rid of Stink Bugs
by: Countryfarm Lifestyles

Stink bugs are easy to rid of when you know how. They can generally be found in or near vegetation, especially on tomatoes, melons, and beans. Because a great many stink bugs are brown or green in color, they blend in very easily with their surroundings.

However, it is not only tomatoes, melons and beans that stink bugs destroy, they can also be found on okra plants and raspberry bushes.

Prevention of stink bugs is better than cure, therefore look for the following plants on your property and remove them if you can, as this is where stink bugs love to hide during the winter:

* legumes
* blackberries
* Russian thistle
* mustards
* little mallow

The best way of getting rid of stink bugs organically is to use Neem oil. I have written an article on the wonders of Neem on this site, and cannot praise this plant enough for its abilities to eraicate a whole host of pests from your homesteads and gardens.

The final way of getting rid of your stink bugs is by companion planting of certain flowers and plants:

·Marigold - Try planting a border of marigold's around your garden.
·Radish - Many garden pests, including stink bugs don't like the smell of radishes.
·Catnip - This will work best if you don't have an outdoor cat.
·Mint - Easy to grow, hardy and needs minimal attention to thrive.
·Garlic - Many garden pests also hate the smell of garlic.
·Tansy - Pretty yellow flower from the Aster family.
