I live and work in south central PA. We have had a region-wide infestation of "stink bugs" (also known as "shield bugs"). They can have a very strong odor, and they are a nuisance both in sheer numbers, and in that they do eat crops and can devastate them.

I infuse oils regularly at my office including, but not limited to, Thieves, Citrus Fresh, Believe, Transformation, Peppermint alone, and/or Purification. I also spray Thieves spray regularly, especially when I have had patients with colds and flu, or rashes. I also use oils at home, especially Thieves which we use for most cleaning projects.

I have noticed that we have very few stink bugs, and those that do show up, are dead. I am wondering if the oils are repelling them? Other people in the area have terrible infestations.

Additional keyword(s) assigned by the editor: thieves, citrus fresh, believe, transformation, peppermint, purification.
