I have no idea what the scientific name of these things are but there has been an insane influx of them this summer. The kids call them “stinkbugs” but thank goodness I haven’t had to be the beneficiary of the odor they emit. Apparently when they feel threatened or are smashed they release something that is quite offensive. This was demonstrated by one of the soccer dads shaking one up in hands and telling us to “smell my fingers”. Umm, no and thanks. After a few jokes he even showed a trail of “stink” that the critter left. YUCK.
They are everywhere. Hanging out by my front door. Diving toward me when I am entering and exiting my car. Don’t be caught standing still. It is almost like they are out to get me. I hate bugs. I have said it before and yes, here, I have posted about my weapons of choice when trying annihilate these suckers from afar. I did find out that the ant spray works pretty well. It isn’t an immediate death. It is slow and torturous which I feel they deserve for all of the fear they inflict upon me.
Can I scream now?
