There is an infestation in my area as well/ I LOATH these bugs. We have been trying to fend them off for about a year and a half. They smell like a
cross between strong chemicals and rotten eggs when you frighten them. I tried putting them in the garbage like you, but they always spray when they
can't get out. I flush them. My water bill has risen lol...
I did some research and came up with this:
They love the light and love the heat even more. So they will love your pc. If you are on at night, keep another light on away from the pc and it will
cut down on the dive bombing. Always flush them or get the dead one's up. Their scent only attracts more of them. The only good thing about them is
that they do not build nests inside your home. They build outside and tend to come in more when it is chilly...day or night.
They finally came out with a spray that will kill them this year. It has helped us a lot. Though I do not like killing anything or using such harsh
chemicals around the house, for us there was no other alternative because I am not sharing my home with them.
We found the spray at Wal-Mart. You can't miss it. It's the yellow one with a HUGE stink bug pictured on the front of it.
I feel your pain. They have made me hurt myself several times lol.
