Hi
Last year in the south of France our friends one night became infested with stick bugs. They found 100s in their van. We were lucky we only found around 30.

When we returned home we find a few around the door. Cleaning out our van yesterday for our winter break I found one on the floor (dead). Our friends are now in Spain and have just killed around 20.
Has anyone got any good ideas on how to get rid of them. If you are in France this year and near fruit trees be aware of this bug

Not a lot one can do against these little beasties, like cluster flies, a part of the rich tapestry of France and other warm countries. They find tiny, really tiny nooks and crannies into which they hide, unless all doors, windows and vents are perfectly sealed you don't stand a chance. Best to vacuum them up, they are called stink bugs for a very good reason, do not squish them.

deep joy

Are you talking about stick insects?

Shield bugs (named after their shape) are also known as stink bugs according to wiki. So I guess that is what the OP is referring to. :)
