Stink bug battle over the blackberries

Grrr.... the stink bugs are back again, bothering my blackberries. The bucket on the left has berries damaged by stink bugs. 

The chickens didn't seem to mind the taste--but goodness, I hate it! So disappointing to see a beautiful plump berry and then notice the stink bug prick. 
Luckily the vines are producing more now. This morning I picked almost a gallon of stink-bug free blackberries (but I did flick at least three stink bugs into soapy water while I was picking).
