    I find this really amazing because, of all the stink bugs I've run into over the years, I've never smelled one. I had no idea they could be so powerful. I guess I never pissed one off...like vacuuming it.

    I'll take the Burmese Python as an invasive over any of these terrible bugs, any day!

    Oh lovely. I just LOVE these things.(Yes, I am being sarcastic)
    No matter how many times I squash one it's never smelled.
    The other species aren't so bad(in looks)

    Fine if you want the stench on you. If you grab one, it sprays you. If you grab it with tweezers, it'll spray you. If you squash it, it's 'innards' all smell like the stuff it sprays so now there is the stench where you squashed it (floor, wall, etc) and on whatever you used to hit it (hand, shoe, hammer, etc). The chemical that smells is resistant to being washed off - but does seem to slowly dissipate over 24 hours or so. If you carefully cover it with a cup and slide a piece of paper under the cup, it usually will not spray.

    Bottom line - there are other critters to feed your plants that don't have all of the downsides of these nightmares ....

    A few days ago (a warm day after a few cooler ones), I was capturing some stinkbugs that had made it into the house and went out on the deck to get several that were lingering out there (trying to get in). After that, I wandered around to the garage and caught them for 5-10 minutes more as they crawled all over ...

    Here's a pic from the top showing the mass in the cup (used flash to freeze movement):


    Here's a similar pic from above without the flash - yes, this is a writhing, squirming, stinking mass of brown marmorated stinkbugs:


    Side view of cup:

    Silly me. I thought we might have fewer of the $&#@%$'s this year ....
