I do not know if any of the members have stink bug infestations in your areas.  

Just straightened out an entire home with 10%SH mix with heavy surfactant.

Focus on the cracks, jambs, crevices on the home.

The use of some Borax in your mix, especially in your rinse water would be most effective. I had a roof cleaning friend who used to insect proof  homes down here in Florida who used it. Insects hate Borax !

Specific to stink bugs soap, once it hits their body, dehydrates them to dead quite fast.

Borax is still better, because it offers long lasting protection.

 

Borax & Boric Acid

Boron-based compounds have been used for centuries to control insects, prevent wood rot, and before it was realized to be harmful, disinfect wounds. Considered a highly effective insecticide, especially with regard to ants, roaches, beetles and weevils, boric acid has been used regularly in the United States since the late forties. Many have reported success in their use of borax and/or boric acid as a stink bug focused insecticide. Unlike nerve-agent chemicals, boron compounds affect the exoskeleton of an insect, and as such, the reaction tends to be slower but highly effective over longer periods of time.

Boric ACID with Alkaline SH...

Anybody spot a potential problem with this? 

Nope, and all because Boric Acid is a very very weak acid, PH  is 9.2 and will never drop the PH of the SH enough to cause the formation of the dreaded fumes.
