How to find studs behind stucco

I need to mount a garden house roll-up on the outside of the house--problem is that the outside is covered with stucco, and I'm not sure how to locate the wall studs...does anyone know of an electoronic stud finder that will work well through stucco?
Thanks to all responders-

How to find studs behind stucco

There are usually several other give aways as to the layout of the studs. HS..
