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!

Trust me....there's also a huge PITA here near D.C. My wife has been killing off two, three, up to four a day for I don't know how long.

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