BLACKSBURG, VA (WWBT) -

Researchers at Virginia Tech say they have a proven homemade way to get rid of pesky stink bugs. 

"This is the season when smelly marmorated stink bugs start infesting homes across the eastern United States," Virginia Tech said in a news release. "As outside temperatures drop, the annoying insects are looking for warmer environments."

In a short video, researchers lay out five quick steps that would take about 30 seconds to complete to create a trap: 

1. Get a roasting pan.

2. Put about a half gallon of water in it.

3. Put in some dish soap.

4. Mix it up.

5. Get a desk lamp and turn it on over the pan for 12 hours.

When you come back to check it, you should find dead stink bugs.
