Stink bugs nest indoors over the winter, but must make their way outdoors again to live. But this is why you generally find them indoors and active in the fall and early spring.

If you have a very old, drafty home, it will be very hard preventing them from coming in but you can do your best by simply hoovering them down when you see them most active. This should prevent them from nesting over the winter.

You would have to seal up all cracks, probably bomb (so that the ones already inside don't reproduce). To kill them, mix up soapy water in a spray bottle and spray them.

Those little stinkers seem to get in all the time. You could make sure the seams of your doors and windows are free of gaps, and don't leave door open for long. If any get in, I scoop them onto a piece of paper and escort them out the door rather then squish them inside.
