Nothing ive tried works (they dont sell DE here, vacuum just ruins the vac with stink, you can't seal an RV tight enough, etc) but here's some photos of my current infestation. This is how it's been since fall, and they're not coming in from outside. They in fact do breed indoors if the conditions are just right

first year it was those little black stink ants, second year wasps, now ladybugs. I'm not religious but I think I'm experiencing the three plagues here

One more thing, at least for the stink bugs they can't swim worth a crap and drown within a min or two. I'm thinking a light over a pan of water at night might just do the trick.

FWIW--I did the sticky fly tape around two led lights, and didn't catch a single ladybug. So apparently, they aren't all that attracted to light. Caught some mosquito-hawks and junebugs, but no ladybugs.

They seem attracted to light. Often fluorescent light. I was attempting to play a movie through my projector and in less than a minute the projector screen was dotted in ladybugs

I massacred a horde of them Saturday night, Bengal spray on all their regular haunts, specifically the vent screen in the front living room. I suppose it is more because its the hottest place in the camper, but they tend to congregate there and after spraying the screen liberally with Bengal spray I probably killed hundreds right there. Also the skylight in the bath and the vent in the bedroom. Went ahead and hit the ACs, returns and vents. Swept and vacuumed up tons of them. We will see if it lasts.
