Bugs coming in through fireplace?

Niki FriedmanMay 25, 2009

We are having a problem with stink bugs and I think they are coming into the house through our living room and bedroom chimneys.

Is there a netting product that is safe to put at the top of the chimney to prevent them from entering? Or, does anyone else have a recommendation.


Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

I dont know about netting, but I have used a chimney balloon to keep asian beetles out of the fireplace and and from creeping through the chimney damper into the house. I bet it would work on stink bugs too.
The balloon is semi-clear so you can use a strong flashlight to see the ones that get stopped and die on the top of the balloon.

Here is a link that might be useful: inflatable damper chimney balloon
