Stink Bugs

I have spent the last hour reading about Stink Bugs. Actually, I didn't know these little critters were called Stink Bugs until I complained to my neighbor that I was finding these things around my doors, and recently in my house. She knew what these bugs were called and is having similar problems with them. So far, I have managed to grab the ones I have found inside with a paper towel and a quick flush down the toilet. I didn't even realize that upon contact they emit an ordor and can bite

They apparently love gardens, hate the cold, and now that fall is coming, they are looking for warm spaces to spend the winter.

Since I am not renting any rooms in my house, I really want them to move south -- I am thinking that since Virginia gets more conservative the more south one goes, and since apparently they "stink" upon contact, Southern Virginia is a perfect location for an invasion.

  1. LOL, I like the idea of wingnuts as stink bugs. Apropo.

    I have a couple of young preying mantis's flittering around the apt. and they sometimes land on the computer screen and cast a shadow like some space monster. I kind of like them though and just shu them. My phobia is with spiders. I see one it's a goner, and that is all there is to it.
