Help needed with interior/stink bugs
Hello All,

My name is Mash and I live in Maryland. I just bought a '95 YJ a few days ago and joined this forum! I am very excited to be a part of the Wrangler community.

However, I did have a question though. The person I bought the Jeep from did not tell me it had stink bugs in it. I have already killed and sprayed most of them but they just keep coming. I have a feeling they are in the seats. So is it possible for me to hose down my interior without messing anything up? Can I use soap and a garden hose to water down the entire interior including seats?

Thanks a bunch,

My recommendation would be the same as stink bug removal from your house. There are a couple of tricks here and there with questionable degrees of effectiveness.

Your best bet is to remain vigilant and remove the buggers as you see them. They should be gone relatively quickly if you keep at it.

As for hosing, that's just another great reason to own a wrangler! Go ahead and hose away. You won't be hurting anything.

Just be careful cause of wires! But With the removal I would remove carpet and honestly replace seats, they may be alot in there! Try putting the top on and using a bug bomb
