    [​IMG] I HATE stink bugs!!! [​IMG] My poor girls got too much of them last year, and barely touch them now. [​IMG] Our entire house was covered, not a single inch of space not covered with stink bugs, and it was raining stink bugs [​IMG]

    I know, I was so upset when the girls stopped eating them! We even tried feeding some to our turtles, but that made their water so gross!! [​IMG] I guess where we lived was one of the worst areas hit last year, but we did learn that Pine Sol in a cup, just a bit of water, kills them immediately! Saves us some hassle, and our new house isn't nearly overrun, altho I have about 6 in my lamp right now [​IMG]

    Just last week, my 12 year old "darling" daughter comes up to me, and gives me a big hug and says "I love you mom", and I'm thinking, "awe, how sweet" until I took a big whiff...................... I tell her "you smell like stink bugs" she starts laughing and proceeds to tell me she grabbed one in her hand, and then she rubbed her hand on my nose! [​IMG] So much for "sweet" and "darling" [​IMG]

    eww gross and yay for pest control! I don't know that I've ever even seen a stink bug in person. I'm grateful. We have spiders mostly. Last year it was like a plague with crickets though.
