    Stink Bugs?

    It was a beautiful day here today. I had the day off but have either been getting over a cold or I am starting to suffer from allergies (never had a problem before). Either way I felt like crap so decided so stay at home instead of going out for a ride.

    I must have caught at least 10 stink bugs in the house today. It has been bad before but never this bad. I guess the warm weather is making them more active. I was hoping the winter would have killed most of them off.

    Anyone else having trouble with these ugly little critters?

    Not that bad, but yeah, I've noticed a couple of them. Little babies right now. Look like little shields.

    I accidently ate three of them at the dog park in Monroeville the other day. I highly suggest not doing that. In my defense though, I was hungry.

    eating one is a mistake, two is stupid and three makes you an honorary texican. Hola Amigo and welcome!

    It appears the only way to eradicate these fart-bugs is to eliminate the source and napalm Allentown.
