Customers complaining of a pesky stink bug problem? Not to worry, Sterling International, Inc. has developed a solution called the RESCUE! ® Stink Bug Trap. The company unveiled this revolutionary product at the National Hardware Show, drawing in show goers to learn more about how to eliminate stink bugs outdoors and indoors. The trap works outdoors to prevent stink bugs from entering homes and businesses as well as prevent them from destroying fruit and vegetable gardens by releasing pheromone attractants which are odorless to humans. The indoor trap has a blue LED light attachment that plugs into the wall, drawing in stink bugs. Once inside the trap, the bugs become dehydrated, allowing them to be disposed of odor-free. Stink bug infestations have become a major issue in the U.S. and with the help of the RESCUE Stink Bug Trap, homeowners, farmers and businesses can rest easy. The product will be available beginning in July, to learn more about Sterling International. Inc’s Stink Bug Trap or other products, visit

    I vote for the U.S. Sunlight attic fan. The remote is a good value-add we have not seen a lot of.

    The Terrax Ground Breaker is an incredible product that will revolutionise your digging chores in industry and DIY landscaping and planting! It has helped my fencing business in a huge way in that i can now dig so many more holes than ever before in a quarter of the time. Wish I had shares in this hardcore tool range!
