The "DIY Stink Bug Trap" link from above is dead.
A quick description:
Cut around the 2 L soda bottle beginning where the 'bell' of the top starts. Try to cut straight around.
Place the Disk stick up style LED light in the bottom of the soda bottle
Take the top that you just cut off, invert it and place it so upside down into the body of the bottle. This forms a type of funnel. Should form a good tight friction fit if your cut was good.
Tape the outside of the bottle up completely with the Disk stick up style LED light. The light needs to shine out from the 'funnel' top only.
Use lengths of masking tape going straight up from the bottom to the top of the black electrical taped bottom. This give the little bugger better traction to climb up the sides to the "funnel". 3 -4 will do.
Turn the light on and place the trap in a dark place like the attic. They see the light, climb into the funnel, loose footing and fall through the funnel ending up trapped inside. When you want to empty it, just pull out the funnel and do what ever you like with them
