While meandering in my kitchen in my socks yesterday, I stepped on something. When I looked under my foot, low and behold, there was a stink bug, of sorts.

According to Patch.com, this particular trap works 14-percent better than the store bought traps and could save you quite a bit of money.

This video shows someone using a pan with a half a gallon of water and just a dash of dish soap with a desk lamp attached.

It's said you can trap a lot more stink bugs, and other bugs for that matter, that are making their way into your home as it gets colder outside.

If you decide to do this at home, let us know how it works out in the comments section below. Photos of your 'trophies' are welcome also.
