    Last night they woke me up.
    They buzz around and crash into something and then they do it again.
    I put a light on in another room but that didn't really attract/distract them too well.

    They are like little flying tanks.

    A new job is appearing in my neck of the woods. I saw a sign offering their services to guarantee to kill your stink bugs.

    Mine are finally dwindling in numbers.

    There is one above me right now. He is begging for it.

    I am getting creative in killing these stink bugs. One flew in from somewhere, amazing, they are so big these days, like flying tanks. He landed inside my desk lampshade. I was eating yogurt. I finished most of it, took a piece of paper and shooed him into the container and ran it outside. I am sure to the amusement of my neighbors on their porch when I emptied it out into the weeds.

    He looked really disgusting laying in there, too. No yogurt for me.

    Well, here it is a new morning and I got my breakfast trap ( a Dannon Light & Fit Yogurt) all ready to go incase of a uninvited stink bug coming in. I am working and trapping at the same time. I am catching these for your platter Red.

    I saw yesterday the first stink bug of the season in my livingroom. Now, when I first was introduced into these things, I hated them. Or just an intense dislike. BUT, now, after seeing them under a microscope I realize the beauty of them. On a slide, they look like a beautiful Asian carpet. I am now, quite fond of them. And, I catch them alive to put them outside. So, like my son said, they can come back in later, lol. Or pay a visit to my neighbors. They love me and appreciate my love of things.

    Although, I feel badly when I read they are destroying the farmers crops.

    Anyone else like looking at them?

    There is a product called Baythroid that I spray on my tomatoes, peas, etc. and it makes the most lovely looking stinkbugs I've ever seen.

    When I need a precise measurement of something I often use the highly technical method of eyeballing it.

    I have been lucky so far.

    The stink bugs are not here this year Yet.

    The Mosquitoes are also missing.

    I think the dry weather has helped to keep the pest away.

    I do have a bunch of Frogs and lizards this year tho. They are cool and eat bugs.

    TJanak, when you say;

    Does it make them Dead, or how are they lovely looking ?

    If I was there, I would yell, " run little stink bugs, RUN!"

    Don, it is an insecticide that I use when I have to. My wife has a couple hundred tomato plants among other things that she grows and sells the produce. Stink bugs and leaf-footed bugs (same family) are pretty heavy this year, as most years. They do more cosmetic damage than anything.

    As far as the mosquitoes, it has been too dry here for them. I work often around the Danbury/Chocolate Bayou area in Brazoria County south of you and there are always mosquitoes there. Even last week they were pretty bad after dark.

    You're not alone in this mess with bugs! They need to be repelled!

    Interesting, they are also, in the Phillipines. This year, the ratio of them has been down in my local area. I saw only one so far this summer.

    Just another donation from our friends in China.

    UVA has supposedly developed something to kill them effectively so I am waiting on that.

    They are pretty resilient little SOBs
